Barcelona Wine Bar’s wine list is so extensive, that it needs a table of contents. Otherwise, you’d be left scouring its 20 pages until the bar closed. Thanks to its neat and easy-to-understand organization, however, you’ll be able to flip to the exact section you’re looking for, whether you’re a fan of sparkling vino, fine red wines from Italy, or carefully aged white wine from France. The wine list is arranged by category and region to make it easy to navigate—but of course, you’re always welcome to ask your server for a recommendation, as well.
Once you’ve made the difficult decision of which wine to try first, it’s time to turn your attention to the charcuterie board. Load it up with Jamon Serrano, chorizo picante, and Catalonia fuet, along with semi-soft Mahon cow’s cheese from Minorca, red-wine-soaked goat’s cheese from Murcia, and six-month-aged Manchego from La Mancha. Then piece together your main meal with a mix of small and large plates, all inspired by Spanish tradition. The tapas include classics such as patatas bravas alongside unexpected bites, like the braised short rib and trout a la plancha. The shorter list of large plates includes a few varieties of Spanish paella.
