Possibly the favorite neighborhood bar in all of Barceloneta, the atmosphere here at midday matches the name—it’s positively electric. It’s a great place to have steamed mussels or clams, maybe a bite of fried fish, some anchovies, a finger sandwich with smoked trout, and then perhaps a small crab salad. There’s beer on tap and a lot of inexpensive Catalan wines. In cold weather, they also tap the big barrels of house vermouth that are more or less ornamental the rest of the year.
