Overview

Dry Martini is Barcelona's Cocktail bar that has become an icon throughout the Cocktail World. It opened over 30 years ago and started business as a cocktail bar, it was run by Don Pere Carbonell, who named it the Dry Martini Cocktail Bar which only served Dry Martini. Other cocktails would later follow on the drinks menu, such as Gin Fizz, Margaritas, Negronis, Whisky Sours, amongst others. When Javier de las Muelas took over his legacy, he wanted to maintain the essence of the classic Cocktail Bar, preserving its English characteristics such as the leather, wood and brass present in the entire premises. He wished to maintain the already unique image, although expanding the Cocktail menu with classic cocktails and his own genuine, exclusive and innovative creations. But always distinguishing the cocktail to which it owns its name: the Dry Martini. A clear example of reverence is the art collection on the walls, dedicated to that same cocktail. Dry Martini by Javier de las Muelas has been listed for as one of World's 50 Best Bars, honour granted to only six bars in the world, Dry Martini being the first in Europe to achieve such a position for the same amount of time.

Cocktail bar located in a very nice area. Chill atmosphere. Stop buzzing around and step into the 60's for few hours. Martini lovers will absolutely appreciate this spot. Bartenders very competent, friendly and smartly dressed. Recommended.

Dry Martini (the drink) is very easy yet very difficult to make whereas if the exact dosage of vermouth v/s gin (or vodka) is not perfectly respected, it is a miss. Well the dry martini(s) that i had at this bar are far from being...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
