Cava Bar has food on the floor, no seats, a wooden bar serving glass upon glass of pink cava and what it seems to be 3 times the amount of people that should be able to fit in there! In Cava Bar (Secret Cava Bar Barcelona as known by tourists, Can Paixano for the locals), as long as your eating they will keep topping up your glass for an extra 1euro and just add it on to your tab.
We advise people not to wear white here, as the drink comes in martini glasses and this place gets very very busy after about 7pm. We have seen numerous people come out covered in red stains! This cava tapas bar is not for the claustrophobic!!
The menu is written across the back wall and is written all in Catalan. If you do not speak the lingo its just a case of pointing and looking out for what other people are ordering and pointing to that! The burgers and chorizo tapas is a safe choice. This is easily the best cava bar in Barcelona and definitely the most memorable.
