Manhattan on Barcelona

We are very honored to appear first in the list of the best places to have a cocktail Manhattan in the city of Barcelona, in section Noctambulus in La Vanguardia

L’esperit de les cocteleries europees fa temps que s’ha instaurat a Barcelona, i un dels artifex d’aquest fenomen positiu va ser Antoni Gotarda, que el 1931 va a fundar l’Ideal Còctel Bar. Actualment, aquest estableciment de referència compta amb Josep M. Gotarda, la tercera generació de la familia (…)

Per el manhattan aquí les tapes que recomana Josep per acompanyar-lo són l’arendada fumada amb olí verge o bé la truita de patata de la casa. Sens dubte un local que ha de figurar a tot bon llistat de cocteleries de la ciutat

Places to enjoy a Gin Tonic on Barcelona

Just like the best bars that existed in other European cities, but in Barcelona were a novelty, was born in 1931 Ideal Cocktail Bar. Directed today by the grandson of its founder, has retained its structure and decoration, very English style, with wood as an essential element and armchairs upholstered in red.

One of the top places for Gin Tonic recommended by Hola Magazine on Barcelona.
