Canned foods, wines and vermouths
In a magnificent building in El Born, the Casa Xifré, just five minutes away from Picasso Museum, the Bodega Vidrios y Cristales returns to the origins of the local bodega, i.e. the bar or the local cellar.
Very simple decoration, for a place with an equally simple concept: to welcome friends who want to drink and eat some tapas in a relaxed atmosphere.
We are far from the chic or flashy of some bars around. A recent place and yet the atmosphere has settled and the place seems to have always existed. As it was for a long time the case in the traditional bodegas here one drinks vermouth, many Spanish wines and beer.
Like tapas? Jabugo, chorizo and many other meats in curing but also potato croquettes, olives, some vegetable pies and finally and especially as "speciality of the house" all kinds of conserves as we used to do in Spain.

A tasty experience that proves tradition is good!
