  • To find real and authentic bars in Barcelona, there are often deviate from the Center and one of the best examples I can give, it's this "Bar Bodega Salvat" that does not need special design to serve you a great vermouth, beers or any other aperitif. A bodega rather old and in the center of the District of Sants, in an area with little traffic. Hard to miss the place at the corner of a street because very often consumed on the pavement. Regulars in this establishment, which is said to be opened in 1880 by the Salvat family, headed by father Salvat, who began to exploit the sale and consumption of wine and spirits. Property handed over to Jordi Ibañez and his partner, Joaquin in 2010. Note that Jordi is now... at "The Anxoveta of Sants" and that the establishment has been resumed. Local so more Centennial who suffered not from a renovation that is still authentic and any. The new owners have respected the original decoration, furniture, wooden refrigerators and all those elements that contribute to the authenticity of this place. And the decoration of this "Bar Bodega Salvat' is fantastic with his earthenware multicolor ceramic on the walls represent heads of characters, with decorative patterns, who can't get enough not to look like comic strips. These pennants of Barca because often players came here, this high glass Cabinet in which we can see a certain number of trophies including mainly cuts and its shabby walls. If you move to the white marble bar, taste a vermouth from home, start a conversation with one of the clients, you can have the feeling of being a little part of the history of the House, to live a moment a little out of time. In a corner, the only elements that could take back in time now, are these slot machines and the cigarette machine, whatever they really are new generation. Like any bodega, barrels in height here and there. However outside the marble, wood is an element that is very present in this space, both in the doors of the refrigerator and on the shelves behind the bar, the elegance of the traditional noble materials is unique. In a corner, the old refrigerator with its wooden doors with a special cooling system. It cools with both gasoline and alcohol at the same time and works perfectly. The vermouth to the House Simo Reus or dark beer Damm who seems to attract quite a bit of clientele, but we will start with classic beers. Here the anchovy of Cantabria are delicious, served as it should with olives and this spicy sauce made from vinegar, black pepper and paprika. Anchovies they serve throughout the day is undoubtedly comprehensive cleaning methodically by one of two employees of the bar. The quality of the raw material does the rest. Other tapas are also suggested on slates placed on various shelves. The dark beer brewed by Damm is rather very pleasant to drink. The name of the school has also used by a local group in the name of "Valero" in a "Byrds" style, but also for the filming of a video for "Diego - bressol Cançó amb lletra X Joana". A place for lovers of authentic and iconic places where time has no hold
