Top neighborhood bars

GRUMS Barcelona is located in the heart of the great city of Barcelona. Specifically, between two of the neighborhoods with the most history. Poble Sec, with its charming streets and famous bars, ideal for getting to know Barcelona in full action. Montjuic, a quieter neighborhood with spectacular views. In this article, the top bars in the neighborhood most recommended by the locals themselves will be mentioned.


First of all, we present you the Box Social restaurant, a place where one can take a trip full of new flavors and from which we assure you that you will leave with some memories and moments. In the hands of the Australian chef Damien Bolger, or better known as the chef of Market fresh cuina de Poblenou.

Xemei is another of the great restaurants in the Poble Sec neighborhood. It is a unique restaurant with Venetian Italian touches where home-style, creativity and good service are the key. Of course, it is necessary to book in advance.


If you are not so extreme, the Mano Rota restaurant is your restaurant. Fleeing from any label and without opting for a specific trend, they have managed to position themselves as one of the strongest venues in the neighborhood.

Continuing on, in a narrow street in the neighborhood, you will find Quimet and Quimet. If you want to go to a place of a lifetime, this is the ideal. It is a family business open since 1914 and specialized in traditional Mediterranean food.

Another traditional restaurant is Casa de Tapes Cañota, a place that combines Galician and Catalan tastes. Its gastronomic offer is that of a lifetime; a good fish and seafood, patatas bravas, Galician octopus,…


Of course, one cannot leave the city without trying one of its famous rice dishes. Para ello os recomendamos El Sortidor de Filomena Pagès, un lugar donde durante más de cuarenta años, la familia Janiu era famosa por sus anchoas barcelonesas acompañadas de su vermut. Another place to have a good rice is Elche, they say that the fame of its rice comes from the demands of Valencian travelers. Or, the typical Martínez terrace, an informal and “cool” space.


If you are on the tourist route near the Montjuic castle, the Forestier restaurant inside the Miramar Hotel is a spectacular stop to rest and enjoy traditional haute cuisine with avant-garde touches. Similarly, near the funicular stop there are various terraces, Bar Marcelino or La Font del Gat.

Finally, if what you are looking for is a good place with unique views of Barcelona, book a table at the Xalet de Montjuic in its glass-enclosed dining room or on its terrace accompanied by Mediterranean cuisine.
