Cute, tiny with happy music. Loved the variety with gin even though I'm not much of a gin drinker. Would recommend!

My couple and I came to this bar following the recommendation of the owner of one of the best cocktail bars in Barcelona. He was right. This small place, a bit far away from downtown Gracia, is the best option for enjoying a very good gin tonic in this neighborhood. Not only for the gin tonics they serve (they are... More

If you're in this area worth a visit for a few gin based cocktails. Delicious and served in massive glasses. 40 different choices and great tips from the bartender who spoke English

We were lucky enough to renting an apartment opposite this great little bar, so found ourselves most nights enjoying the best G&T's in Barcelona! They may not have as wide a selection as the other brilliant Gin Bar in Gracia (Bobby Gin), but the quality was second to none. Highly recommend it if you can find it!!

Charming little bar with lots of character. I had never truly experienced a gin & tonic until friends who live in Barcelona brought us here! Over 40 types of gin paired with the perfect accoutrements and Fever Tree tonic. As we went with friends, we tried 6 different ones. Go for NUT and Gin Mare, both beautiful Catalan gins with...

ANGLÈS Elephanta is a cozy and small bar located in Vila de Gràcia. It is one of the first places in Barcelona to specialize in Gin tonic, and now is an international reference of this beverage. There are about 40 different gins, and if it is difficult to choose one.. you can ask for the "cata de 3 minigintonics" (3 different minigintonics) The menu of cocktails is unique. You can ask for the classic ones and also the "còctels d'autor", created by the different barman and barmaid that work in Elephanta. This menu changes according to the season. And for the tea lovers.. a huge menu of teas, rooibos and infusions. you can drink them hot, cold, and for the bold ones.. the "Tes Alegres" (Happy teas), with alcohol. (we don't serve tea on Friday and Saturday from 21.30h) Free Wi-fi

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
