5 things to do in the Gothic District

5 things to do in the Gothic District

The Gothic district is placed in between the Born and the Raval, and the Rambla runs straight through it. There are many hidden restaurants and bars within this ancient district. Look below to find some of them.

1.Boadas Cocteleria

Bodas Cocteleria has been around for at least 60 years now, but still offers a spectacular customer service and range of drinks. If you don’t know what you want, you’d just need to tell the bartender what you’re craving. Whether you’re in the mood for something bitter, sour, spicy, or even something with a dash of chocolate—they’ll transform your words into a drink. Though the prices of the drinks can be a bit high, they are delicious and are undoubtably worth the investment. And if you are ever unsatisfied with a drink, you can always tell the bartender and they will try to remedy your dissatisfaction. Also take into consideration that if you dont want to pay this higher prices there are other places in the Gothic District.

2.Milk Bar and Bistro Restaurant

This restaurant is almost at the edge of the Gothic Quarter. It is a breakfast and brunch place with a variety of menu options ranging from pancakes to smoothies to egg’s Benedict. If you are missing out on your standard breakfast food in Spain, I’d recommend you to come out to Milk.

3.Espit Chupitos

This bar is at the edge of the Gothic District, but can also be found at a few more locations around the city. Espit Chupitos is a bar that has over hundreds of options of shots or you and your roommates to try during the summertime. Some of the shots glow, others make your mouth feel cold and then hot, and some you can even try while they are on fire!

4. Rocambolesc

This ice cream shop is located on La Rambla, and is right next to the Gran Teatre Del Liceu. It was created by Jordi Roca, one of the three chefs of El Celler de Can Roca, and houses various types of elaborate ice cream flavors. Some of the flavors include lavender and coconut, vanilla, chocolate, baked apple, yogurt and one seasonal flavor. There are also various toppings ranging from caramel sesame seeds, lime marshmallows, fruits, cotton candy, and the list goes on. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy delicious, gourmet ice cream during the summertime?

5. Plaza de San Felipe Neri

While San Felip Neri is a square like Plaça del Sol; it is still a must see for any traveler, foodie or not. It is a beautiful area that feels like it’s been cut off from time. It is close enough to bring ice cream from Rocamblesc and the restaurants from El Born, but also a pleasant place to simply relax.
