Owner description: 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.

Words cannot describe how amazing this bar is. In fact, it's not just a bar. It's an experience. The mojitos and martinis are incredible. Each drink is so meticulously made, it's like Chemistry meets cocktails. The bar staff are also so passionate about each drink, explaining the flavours and mixing process to you. They could not have been friendly or more helpful.

Being passionate about cocktails, everywhere I go I try to find the best cocktail bar - this is it for Barcelona. Not even for Barcelona, this is quite possibly the best cocktail bar I've been too. From the softly spoken bartenders to the specially designed bar towels, this bar oozes precision and class. But don't be put off, this is not a pretentious place.
