Pitin Bar In 1957, a neighborhood grocery store was transformed into one of El Born's first bars – so it's little wonder that the local citizens have a soft spot for Pitin Bar, a cozy hole-in-the-wall joint on the square. Barcelona Spain 41.3851103 2.1832228

The Scene

In 1957, a neighborhood grocery store was transformed into one of El Born's first bars – so it's little wonder that the local citizens have a soft spot for Pitin Bar, a cozy hole-in-the-wall joint on the square.

In 1957, a neighborhood grocery store was transformed into one of El Born’s first bars – so it’s little wonder that the local citizens have a soft spot for Pitin Bar, a cozy hole-in-the-wall joint on the square.

Historic as the place may be, the décor has definitely moved on from half a century ago and now features disco balls, twinkling lights, a few bar stools, and a snug booth underneath the stairs.

Gentle background music sets the stage for a liberal local crowd to enjoy their cocktails in this quaint and trendy atmosphere or to head out to the patio for a breath of night air.

A narrow spiral staircase leads up to one of the area’s most beloved drinking spots – a tiny mezzanine with miniature furniture and a view of the side streets below.

Charming, hip, and intimate, Pitin Bar is a good place to go with a small group for pre-club drinks or just to relax in a very tranquil setting.

Tip from Jonah:

A relaxed environment with a dash of character makes Pitin a great nook for sipping absinthe and chatting with friends.

  • Crowd

    Laid-back locals, mid-20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient tunes on the stereo.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    None.

  • Prices

    Beer €3–€4.50, mixed drinks and absinthe €6+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    The limited space can get pretty warm and packed on the weekends, so the best bet is Monday through Thursday nights. Go around midnight to avoid the crowd and get a seat upstairs.

Fun and friendly!
Kendrick K. Aug 30, 2012
Pitin Bar is an incredibly fun and friendly place. The bartenders, also known as the “Pitin Boys” of Barcelona, are soo hilarious and make your experience at the bar so much better. Definitely chat them up when you’re there. Pitin Bar offers great seats outside as well as upstairs, but I would stay in the bar area for a much livelier and fun experience!
Super cool and friendly!
Mahika G. Aug 30, 2012
The bartenders here are just as fun and energized as the venue itself is! This place is full of character, found in the lights hanging from the ceiling, the glowing shelves behind the bar, and the people which fill the little bar. For a more relaxed environment, head up to the lounge upstairs to find couches and more seating. Otherwise, hang out downstairs to meet laid back and friendly locals and tourists alike! If it's a hot night, grab one of the tables outside before it gets too crowded!
