The best chiringuitos of Barcelona

Head to the beach and its famous bars!

When the sun illuminates Barcelona and the temperature of the water begins to be pleasant, open the "xiringuitos" in Catalan or “chiringuitos” in Spanish, that is, for us, the bars at the beach. From late May or early June, when these begin to open for the summer season, working people make the midday break running to the beach to enjoy some precious moments at the beach bars, while others will end the day with a drink listening to good music.

Originally the chiringuitos were simple beach bars. People would enjoy a lounger on the beach, have a drink and eat some tapas or snacks. Nowadays, the beach bars offer quality cuisine, cocktails and entertainment until late at night... The Barcelona Beach is a ritual, the beach bars are the essence of relaxation. You can enjoy them all day long, and we recommend you to visit these typical bars on the beach...


Here are our favorite chiringuitos in Barcelona:



La Guingueta de l’Escribà

#chiringuito #sun #beach

La Guingueta de l’Escribà - Barcelona 

Just below the Escribà restaurant, La Guingueta de l’Escribà is its very relax beach chiringuito..


If we go to Escribà for its famous rice, we appreciate La Guingueta to spend a day at the beach in family or an evening with friends.
The place is open all day, you can book a mattress and a parasol or just go there for a cocktail from an endless list. The kitchen is also open all day. Perfect for forgetting your watch and taste tapas to share with friends or have Mediterranean-inspired dishes.


This will require a walk to the Bogatell beach..

Opening hours : Every day from 11 to 23:00
Phone : +34 633 88 45 82

Pez Vela

A perfect day at the beach…

Pez Vela - Barcelona

Easy to find, under the W Hotel, Pez Vela (the sailing ship) is a marvellous and smart chiringuito of Grupo Tragaluz (Bestial, Agua, Tragaluz...).


One comes there for a superb sight on the sea and the Barceloneta, to enjoy Barcelona beach but more especially to have sea food lunch or diner on a sunny and relax terrace.


The menu: seafood tapas , salads, paellas (15/20€) or grilled fish. Very simple foods but extremely good and perfectly matching for a "farniente" day at the beach.

Opening hours : Lunch: Monday through Friday 1.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m.// Saturday and Sunday: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. // Dinner: Monday through Thursday: 8.30 p.m. to 11.30 p.m. // Friday and Saturday: 8.00 p.m. to 12.30 a.m. // Sunday night closed

Xiringuito Vai Moana

One day at the beach

Xiringuito Vai Moana - Barcelona

When you foamed all the trendy places in the Rambla of Poblenou. When you need to take sunbath, bath and  enjoy farniente. Direction the beach of Bogatell for a long moment of relaxation at the Xiringuito Vai Moana. This chiringuito is for long time on our list of the coolest places of Barcelona.


One goes there from the morning to the evening, to enjoy the beach as well as having a cocktail at the end of the day. In the beginning the chiringuitos were beach bars where one came to benefit from the mattresses, to have a drink, a sandwich or an ice. Vai Moana (blue sea in Polynesian) followed the trend to become a true place of restoration and night entertainment.


Between sunbaths, head to the bar for true fruit juices, smoothies and a long list of cocktails. Our preference goes towards most refreshing ones: frozen daiquiri, frozen margarita and Piña colada.


At table, the international cuisine is completely adapted to a day at the beach: hamburgers, tacos, sandwiches, tapas to share and of course  the home paella, of good quality.


Very appreciated, Vai Moana opened three others chiringuitos on the beaches of Barcelona: La Deliciosa, Bambú and Blue. In complete confidence

Also know that there are chiringuito type bars in the city:




La Caseta del Migdia

A BBQ with sight on the sea

La Caseta del Migdia - Barcellona

La Caseta del Migdia is heaven on earth hidden beside the Montjuic Castle. One comes there to see the sunset in all quietude. Under the pines, few deck chairs, tables, parasols, a beautiful musical environment, enough to disconnect  from the vibrating life of the big city.

The beer is fresh. Grilled meat (botifarra and chicken) and salads are generous (15€). That's all and it is just perfect.

A beautiful walk to climb up the mountain, or in taxi …

Opening hours : Seasonal check their website / Saturday - Sunday and holidays noon-sunset
Phone : +34 693 99 27 60
Metro/Bus : Paral•lel (L2, L3) + Funicular + walk


Cool, exotic xiringuito..

It will be necessary to make a small effort by going to the marvellous Turo Parc to discover Pinhan, an absolutely delicious Turkish xiringuito.


In this splendid garden change of scenery is due, from now on, to the dishes suggested by Pinhan: a Mediterranean cuisine largely influenced by the Turkish origins of the owner of this place. Thus from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., from brunchs to mezze, the nemu takes you along in a culinary voyage to the borders of the Orient: dolmades, pastrami, risotto of bulgur, babaganoush, borek but also hamburgers and delicious salads.


Without surprise Pinhan works with Cloudstreet Bakery one of best bakeries of Barcelona
Near perfection !

Address : Turó Parc, Avenida Pau Casal 19
Opening hours : Every day from 8am to 8pm
Metro/Bus : Calvet-Tenor Viñas
