Gastronomy is one of the most popular attraction in Barcelona. That is why one of the most frequent doubts of all visitors is where to have tapas in Barcelona. The good news is that just a few meters away from our hotel for family in Poble Sec you will find one of the best tapas streets in the Catalan capital. We are referring to Blai Street, where pintxo and montaditos bars coexist with establishments of a lifetime.

The neighborhood of Poble Sec is fashionable. Not only because of its proximity to the port and Las Ramblas (just 15 minutes on foot), but because it is a lively area full of restaurants and cafes and certain points of interest. A good example is the Mirador del Poble Sec, which throws stunning views of Barcelona.

Lovers of canes afternoons that extend well into the night will find in Poble Sec their favorite place. Blai Street stretches a few hundred meters, and, in fact, it takes just a few minutes to cover it in its entirety. However, this always bustling pedestrian street appears dotted with trendy bars where you can stop along the way. When the weather permits, dozens of terraces become hollow ready to fill this street with an unbeatable atmosphere.

Tapas and pintxos for all tastes and pockets

Even though the extension of Blai Street does not reach half a kilometer, the offer of bars is immense. Succulent pintxos carefully displayed in the showcases, montaditos, assorted tapas and very cool beers. Each location knows how to attract passersby through prices that cannot be rejected.

Any of these establishments is an excellent idea to spend some time among friends, conversations and good food. Some of the most emblematic are Blai 9, whose delicious tapas will immediately open the appetite. The Little Corner of Blai is another of the mythical, a place to accompany each tapa with a vermouth. Koska Taverna, on the other hand, is also a great idea to taste pintxos in the purest Basque style.

The best thing about this street is that it can also be a great starting point to start a tapas route through the surrounding streets. Just do not forget to come hungry! Enjoy your stay at our family boutique hotel in central Barcelona!
