Canigó


★★★ :
Plaça Revolució
Metro Joanic L4
If you've had your fill of touristy Irish pubs and trendy cocktail bars and you fancy sampling an authentic Catalan drinking den, you won't do much better than Bar Canigó. Stark lighting, hard chairs, no central heating in winter or air conditioning in summer - this bar is the real deal. However, these minor flaws are more than compensated for by Canigó's two great strengths: its location and its astonishing cheapness. Situated at the top of Plaça Revolució and the bottom of calle Verdi, equidistant from the Fontana and Joanic metro stops and slap-bang in the centre of Gracia, this is the ideal place to meet friends and kick start your night out, especially since it´s one of the most well known bars in the neighbourhood. As if this wasn't good enough, the price list redefines the term "economy". Bottled beers are 1.50€ and spirits are under 5€, making it perfect for those getting sloshed on a budget. Despite a lack of music, décor or anything particularly distinctive, Canigó is very popular and much more enjoyable than it may appear from the outside. For those eager to venture off the beaten tourist track, this is an excellent place to start.
