Bar Jai-ca: tapas in la Barceloneta

Bar Jai-ca has been in business since 1955 but is still as fresh as the first day and shows a very a typical decoration from Barcelona: paintings on the walls, endless shelves with bottles, traditional wooden tables and tiles, Barça photos on the walls and Wine boots decorate the place. They offer a great variety of tapas, I would recommend you to try the anchovies and boquerones, the tortilla deBar Jai-ca tapas en Barcelona patatas,  chipirones and a good ration of tigers (stuffed and fried mussels) all paired with a good vermouth.

There’s also  a terrace to enjoy the good weather in summer after a day at the beach.

The public is a mix of locals, foreigners living in Barcelona and tourists. Do not be fooled,  the bar has not lost its authenticity over time and remains a frequent meeting point for families or groups of friends from the city.
