Ideal Cocktail Bar


Located in the Eixample, in the secret back room of the Ideal Cocktail Bar are a group of whiskey drinking, cigar puffing, boxer dogs playing poker. Whilst this is unlikely to be true, it feels like it could be. The discerning, mahoganied interior of this small establishment has been serving the well-heeled and well pantalooned (no shorts allowed) of Barcelona since the 30s, which is also, it seems, when some of the clientele were born.

The cocktails are some of the best in Barcelona, which, when you consider the current proprietor is the grandson of the founder, as well as being an internationally renowned mixologist and author of books on the art of cocktail making, is really no surprise. They boast they can tell what kind of drink you will like just by looking at you. With 40 gins, 90 single malt whiskeys and all this experience, BarChick says give them a whirl.
