Barcelona also jealously guards some secrets, such as some almost impossible to find bars and restaurants, hidden behind fake signs or atypical entrances. Let's see which are the best to find.

Secret restaurants in Barcelona

We talk about hidden bars and restaurants, almost impossible to find, if you don't know what to look for. Back in fashion after years, they resume the SpeakEasy style of the American prohibition period.

In the Spanish city, there are about forty secret places to find, but we have selected some of the best and most particular ones to try on the next trip.


    El Armario

One of the most mysterious places in Barcelona is El Armario. Of this there is no facebook page, nor reviews on TripAdvisor. A place known mostly by locals, and to enter, you have to go through a hole in the wall and enter a closet.

It is not possible to know in advance whether it is open or not. This, in fact, mainly depends on the mood of the owners. The bar is small but full of charm.

The bizarre entrance makes it one of the most difficult places to find in Barcelona. In fact, the Papillon is hidden in a dimly lit alley in the Raval. According to The Guardian, this is one of the top 5 bars in Barcelona, ​​its only problem is that nobody ever finds it.

The restaurant is located in Carrer Neu de Sant Cugat, always keeping in mind that it will not be easy to find it.

You will only realize that you are in the right place when you find yourself in front of a metal door with graffiti. It makes no sense to go there before 3 am, because it will still be closed.

Mariatchi Bar

Manu Chao, famous singer and composer, has opened a secret bar in Barcelona. We are talking about Mariatchi, a place that takes its name from the Mexican musical style which in 2011 was declared a Cultural Heritage. As soon as you enter you are greeted by a colorful mural.

The restaurant is located in the heart of the historic center of Barcelona, ​​the Gothic Quarter, but the prices are really affordable. In addition, the singer often organizes surprise concerts, in a warm and familiar environment that will take you directly to South America.
