Can Paixano

Wine Bar in Barceloneta, the Waterfront & El Poblenou

This lofty cava bar (also called La Xampanyeria) has long been run on a winning formula. The standard tipple is bubbly rosé in elegant little glasses, combined with bite-sized bocadillos (filled rolls) and tapas. Note that this place is usually packed to the rafters, and elbowing your way to the bar can be a titanic struggle.
