Flying in the face of the earthy vibe of most of Gràcia’s drinking and eating dens, La Baignoire is a distinctly ritzy wine bar much loved by the chatty denizens of this charismatic neighborhood and a sign of the district’s ongoing gentrification.

The bar’s black, chocolate, and gold color scheme, Baroque-patterned wallpaper, and low-hanging chandeliers set an appropriately refined tone for sampling from La Baignoire’s extensive wine list, written up in white pen on sleek black marble.

A large selection of cheeses from around the world is available to accompany Spanish vintages such as Rioja and Penedès, and many of the bar’s customers eagerly devour these and other tapas along with their drinks.

Despite the upscale setting, La Baignoire is surprisingly affordable and relaxed, and though some older guests may be decked out in evening wear, an equal number of patrons sport the shabby chic look of the wealthy urban hippies so typical of Gràcia’s Catalan population.

A small space with just enough room for thirty or forty wine enthusiasts, La Baignoire has an intimate vibe where the emphasis is on good taste and refined conversation.

Tip from Adriana:

Although La Baignoire is a wine bar, the bartenders also specialize in gin and tonics. Try one made with the distinctive Old Raj brand, which has a hint of saffron.

  • Crowd

    Catalan regulars including urban hippies, couples, and wine lovers, late 20s to 50s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient easy-listening bar music.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Wide range of cheeses and tapas.

  • Prices

    Cheese plates €3.80+, tapas €4.20+. Wine €2+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Smart casual, though the dress code isn’t strict.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Busiest between 10pm and midnight, Thursdays to Sundays.

  • Close By

    The same attention to detail and quality can be found just around the corner at La Baignoire’s sister venue, Viblioteca (Carrer de Vallfogona, 12), also run by the sommelier Yolanda Villegas.

Salut, je suis venu dans votre bar en 2007, et il y avait une fille photographe qui bossai comme serveuse qui s'appelait Élie. J'aimerai juste avoir de c nouvelles. À telle face book. Bis
Nice place

La Baignoire is located in a great place - right near one of the main squares and shopping streets in gracia. Gracia is such a great neighborhood and La Baignoire pretty much encompasses the scene there. The restaurant looks clean with its white walls and countertops. The food is really good as well as reasonably priced. The crowd is a young, fashionable crowd which is common in Gracia. This place is great. They also have a sister restaurant called Viblioteca right around the corner which is really great too.
