You would never expect to find this mighty selection of gins in the tiny confines of a former milk shop in Sant Antoni, but nevertheless, here it is. Xix Bar, which is pronounced ‘chicks’ and named as a pun on the street address, is all gin, all the time. The cosy surroundings are eclectic and homey, with just the tiniest hint of 1950s splashed into the tall bar stools and black and white tiling about the place. And Xix Bar is undoubtedly the type of place where you come if you want only two things: to meet the neighbours (or the locals) or to drink gin. Good gin. Preferably both. Don’t forget to stop into Xix’s little gin shop, Gin Corner, in the unit next door to pick something up for the road.
