take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and

You won't get a cocktail class of the sort you're thinking of in Boadas. It's a proper old school bar and has changed very little over the years. No drinks menus, no food, just incredibly knowledgeable bar staff, (even if... More
