If you’re more of a wine than a cocktail person, La Vinya del Senyor is one wine bar you can’t miss. Locally known as Barcelona’s best wine bar, I loved the vibe here. Located right opposite El Born’s Santa Maria church, which may be my favourite church in Barcelona, this is the place to come and try a number of their excellent (and very well-priced) Riojas, while enjoying a beautiful view. It’s a small, cosy bar, with only a few tables, where the staff are friendly and willing to share their fantastic knowledge on wine. While they’re unsurprisingly strong on Spanish wine, they have wines from all over the world.
And they’re open until 1am, after which you can stumble on to one of the many bars that El Born has to offer.
