This famous 100-year-old winery located in the Poble Sec neighborhood is managed by Quim, a member of the fourth generation of the family, and the great-grandson of the original owner. As in any good family business, the bar is run by Joana, his sister, and Carmen, his wife.

Quimet & Quimet is one of those bars that’s well-known by both local and tourists alike, as well as anyone looking for a nice spot to have a drink and a nosh. The bad news is that all it takes is about 30 guests for this bar to be jam-packed.

Its walls showcase over 500 bottles of wine and liqueurs. Despite this wide variety, the highlight at this winery is actually its tapas and small sandwiches, made right at the bar, since the winery has no kitchen, one of its most distinctive characteristics.

All the tapas are served cold and made with only the finest and freshest of ingredients. Small bites featuring salmon, yogurt, and truffle-infused honey, artichoke, creamy Brillat-Savarin, and tomato confit. And, since they specialize in tinned goods, there’s never any shortage of basics like cockles, clams, sardines, tuna fillets, bonito, and anchovies.

Another thing that makes this winery stand out is that it offers its own craft beer: Quimet & Quimet beer is available in ¾ liter bottles and on tap. It’s a smooth, toasted brew manufactured by the Barcelona Beer Company, and almost as popular as the rose cava.

Quimet & Quimet is the perfect place to enjoy a light bite and a pleasant atmosphere. And, for those curious, it’s located on the same street as the building in which Joan Manual Serrat was born, as indicated by a plaque on number 95.

Areas of barcelona Sants-Montjuïc

Sants-Montjuïc, located on the southern end of the city, is Barcelona’s largest district, abutting the municipalities El Hospitalet de Llobregat and El Prat del Llobregat. It comprises various neighborhoods, each with its own character, like the formerly industrial areas of Sants, Hostafrancs, Poble-sec, and La Bordeta, as well as the port area and the Zona Franca Customs Authority. And it’s home to one of Barcelona’s most popular green spaces, the mountain of Montjuïc, crowned by a castle that defended the city’s coast in times past.
