Peacefully co-existing with the barrage of bars forming the backbone of this plaça, Sol de Nit is the best bar for those of us who have grown out of 'doing it large' at the weekends. That's not to say it's a boring bar as it certainly has its fair share of charm and interesting art pieces gracing its old walls. Offering a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere inside with comfortable tables, and an outside terrace appropriately situated in this famously sunny square; whether you pop here for a quick beer and a spot of afternoon sun or venture in for a chat, a bite to eat or a few beers, this bar won't fail to disappoint. Music is also chilled enough to put you in a sociable mood without being overbearing or too 'in ya face' to enjoy a pleasant natter. All in all this is a rather more mature bar but with enough qualities to please all but the most fussy of punters and a good place to start drinking in the sun before moving inside to lubricate the tonsils until the night's frivolities draw in!

Update 2018 - Sol de Nit has focused on it's food in order to try to differentiate it from the other establishments in the plaça. Calling it a restaurant is a bit of a stretch though - but if you're looking for a light lunch in the Gracia area then check their website for menu and cocktail details.

Access for People with Disabilities

There's a small lip of about 5cm to get into the bar. Once inside it's a typical gracia bar layout; you have to get past the bar, barstools and all the people in the way to get to the seating area. It gets busy, so go early to get a table inside, or you may be just as well outside on the terrace if possible.

WC's: Although not adapted for wheelchair users you may be able to get just inside to empty a legbag if you don't care about shutting the door behind you......

In response to the comment left by 'anonymous' if you behave like an idiot then you will be treated like one. Sol de Nit is one of the best bars in Gracia and probably BCN. The staff are fantastic the atmosphere is amazing - cool and yet mature. If you could only visit one bar on your trip make it this one.

Thanks for your comments! It seems we have mixed opinions on this one. I agree it's not great but it's really a bar to pop in for a quiet one in the sun and a bite to eat. Being on this square of course adds a touch of spice and cool.
