Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Barcelona

Ginger
Salero
Although you could slink into Salero for a sumptuous supper we prefer it as a fabulous place for late-night cocktails. Its romantic atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for date night.
Xix Bar
A mighty selection of gins in a tiny former milk shop. Who would've thought?
The White Bar
Hotel bars can be hit or miss, but the White Bar - attached to the Chic & Basic Hotel on Calle Princesa - is an excellent place to head pre-dinner, post-dinner or even for dinner.
Pla
Whilst Pla could be classed as a restaurant we highly recommend it for an early evening glass of wine or cleverly crafted cocktail. Gothic interiors add panache.
Manchester Bar
With music from its namesake city in the UK and cheap beer before 10pm - the Manchester Bar is certainly unique for Barcelona...
La Vinya del Senyor
According to those in the know - that would be us - La Vinya del Senyor offers up the best wine list in the city. The rustic environment meanwhile affords diners an authentic Catalonian experience despite its shockingly shabby exterior.
Gimlet
The perfect place to come for pre-club drinks before painting the rest of the town red, Gimlet has become something of a local institution among cocktail-loving locals.
Bar Lobo
Drinking and eating is more a full-time job in Barcelona than a casual pastime, which is why we love Bar Lobo, which does it oh-so well.
Andu
Still relatively unknown with tourists Andu provides a real taste of Catalonian lifestyle with lethal cocktails served up in atmospheric surroundings. The perfect place to escape the pretension of the more tourist-crammed bars in the city.
