Cocktail at Alsur Café Barcelona

I’m not a big party animal, I like to be as productive as possible during the weekend and I’m not if I’m hungover… But my favourite thing to do is go for a long Saturday lunch, and then prolong it with some cocktails (and wake up fairly bright and shiny the next day..!). Many bars don’t open until later, so what are the options? Here’s a list of some favourite places to get a good afternoon cocktail:

AlSur Café:

Their cocktails are great and they serve them all day, every day. They do brunch all day too, every day! And you should check out the so called brunchtails, Oreo smoothie with vodka anyone..? Read my post about Alsur here.

Rosa Negra / Rosa de Raval:

This Mexican food place serves big, strong, inexpensive mojitos and daiquiris all day. The food is tasty too, and they have gluten free options if that’s your thing. Read my review here.

Almirall:

It’s one of the oldest bars in the city, and it’s still going strong. Their mojitos are great, and the atmosphere too.

Ugot Bruncherie

Here you can have great brunch cocktails, or maybe something with your afternoon tea? It’s so charming too, check out the pink flamingo wallpaper. Read more here.

Bodega Quimet:

If you want to go old school then this is the place for you. It’s an old bodega and it’s usually filled to the brim in the evenings and weekends. Go here for a tasty vermouth or a glass of wine, they have a great selection. Read my post on Bodega Quimet here.

Vai Moana:

Why not go to the beach, soak up some sun and have a drink or two in the afternoon? Vai Moana is the perfect place. The cocktails are great, and the food too should you get hungry in between your drinks. More on Vai Moana here.

Rooftop terraces:

There are plenty of rooftop terraces in the city, and many of them serve drinks at all hours. In the afternoon they’re not as busy as they might be in the evening. A few suggestions are Hotel Neri, Cottonhouse Hotel (more a patio than a rooftop, but still really worth it), the terrace at the Majestic Hotel and the rooftop at Hotel Claris.

Kaelderkold:

They have a long list of beers on tap, but their cocktails are smashing too. The atmosphere at the bar is usually great, and you won’t be the only daytime drinker, that’s guaranteed..! 

Olgod:

The sister bar of Kaelderkold, and equally great. One of my favourite hangouts. Their non-alcoholic drinks are excellent too, I love the ginger beer. Oh, and their menu is vegetarian!

Mikkeller:

For fans of craft beer this is heaven, but as a non-beer drinker their cherry wine is my favourite. They do afternoon brunches in the weekends too if you’re hungry. More on Mikkeller here.

Chatelet:

In Gracia you'll find this gem of a bar, where they have a long list of cocktails and snacks too. 

Carrer del Parlament:

The hip street in Sant Antoni is packed with places to have a drink or two at. Close by there’s also Wes Anderson-inspired Mendl’s, don’t miss it!
