Speakeasy Vibes and Killer Cocktails at 33 by Santi Ortiz
33 by Santi Ortiz in Sant Antoni is probably the smallest cocktail bar in Barcelona, but WOW! It is without a doubt in my top 3 cocktail bars in Barcelona at the moment. Look it up beforehand on the map, because the door is quite anonymous and you'll pass by it without noticing if you're not careful.
The bar might be tiny but it is so beautifully decorated, and has such a cool atmosphere. One detail that I fell for right from the start was the welcome cocktail that was served right at the moment we got in through the doors. Now that's a very good sign!
The mixologist will guide you through the cocktail menu jungle (it is not easy to decide, there are so many drinks that look amazing!) by asking you what kind of preferences you have. Last time I opted for a flavourful drink made with pine needle syrup, and my partner in crime a cocktail with rum infused with popcorn, and the presentation of the drink was quite unforgettable to say the least..!
In case you are having dinner in the restaurant next door, Cuba de Janeiro, and you are feeling like having a cocktail afterwards, then you can head towards the corridor that takes you to the bathrooms, but instead of turning left go straight ahead and open the anonymous door. This will take you directly to the bar.
One advice: if you want a mojito then this isn't the place for you, you can get them anywhere else in the city! Go here for an excellent, beautiful cocktail with interesting ingredients and an exquisite presentation, it is worth it.
