In the heart of the Raval, the vermouth flows at this new-style bodega, run by chef Xavier Pellicer, which harks back to the spirit of the 1920s. It recaptures the atmosphere of the old bars of the Raval in the early 20th century and embodies tradition in the cosmopolitan city centre.

Bodega La Puntual
And from the Raval to the Born, because the city?s coolest neighbourhood also has its vermut haunts. This is the case of the Bodega La Puntual, together with the iconic bar Xampanyet, which are both just a stone?s throw from the Museu Picasso. La Puntual is spacious with a high ceiling and you can have a vermut there any time of the day. The back wall has witnessed 1,000 years of history and is an additional excuse to check La Puntual out.
