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 de 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.
It is located in the neighborhood of Barceloneta (Carrer de Ginebra, 13), a fishermans district located in the coastal area of the Barcelona. The nearest bus station is Passeig Joan de Borbó and you have to take one of these lines 39, 45, 59, D20, N8 or V15 to get there.
I leave you with a serving of cuttlefish.
