Perfect Spanish tapas lunch in a real, local bar. Very friendly staff. Not a place only for tourists, so the prices are also affordable, and the food is real! Ask for a plate from the old lady!

Was recommended to us by a local, and did not disappoint. The five stars here for the enjoyment we had there, not necessarily anything else. It is a fascinating place, full of character - none more so than the veteran owner Leo. The place is a shrine to some guy called "Bambino" and we spent both visits trying to work... More

Maybe they should put it inside a tourist guide because if you are interested in places were you can breathe past times, certainly it is one of these. On saturday and sunday morning, especially since spring to the early autumn, it is crowded by people drinking vermouth or beer under the tireless look of Leo, always ready to put you... More

Nice little bar tucked away on the narrow streets between the marina and beach. A bit shabby but nice beer, nice tapas, nice price.

We've been in Bar Leo twice. First time we were hungry after sitting on the beach and looking for place to eat something. We have found some small not impressive looking bar with tapas. The owner doesn't speek English but some local people help us to make an order. Tapas was wonderful and Leo the owner Has treated us like... More

This is the most typical bar in Barceloneta! The place has a decor with things from the musician Bambino. The owner proudly speaks about this singer and gets very emotional. In the bar there is a digital Jukebox where you can select lots of 'Flamenco' music. You can enjoy some homemade tapas like tortilla, bomba among others.

Bar revelers falling out onto the street of this tiny bar in Barceloneta. Happily drinking and having fun. Inside a tiny little old lady is serving drinks to the masses. Somewhere in the corner someone is trying to sing. It could be the flamenco star who is posted all over the walls. Worth a visit on your way past.

This typical bar, not easy to be found, has the walls lined with newspaper and magazine clippings and photos of Bambino, a famous flamenco singer in the sixties. While drinking a vermouth or a beer, you can taste tapas, listen to music from a jukebox or, if you are lucky, be part of the audience of performing guitar musicians singing... More

Great atmosphere in this quirky party bar. The vermut is good and the decor striking. Give it a shot.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
