In this article we’ll talk about one of the most popular districts in Barcelona, La Barceloneta. We will underline the best bars on its beaches, while describing the most special and interesting ones.
A little history of Barceloneta
It is worth noting, before starting, that this neighborhood has a very extensive history, since it was created back in 1753. In 1755 people started inhabiting the area, performing maritime and artisanal activities, while taking advantage of the port and sea around them.
Another aspect that the neighborhood acquired over the years, was a striking touch by workers, especially for being extremely close to both the port and the railway, which led it to be considered, in its beginnings, as a key industrial area for Catalonia.
From these historical touches, we know that La Barceloneta did not take long to begin incorporating leisure and dining options, which means, an great incentive, to other disciplines, as the practice of water sports and the birth of sports clubs: swimming, sailing, etc..

This bar is very similar to Chiringuito del Mar, but El Sol, as the name implies, has a much more relaxed and mystical atmosphere, perhaps, is it because of its chill out music? Or is it perhaps the largest printed electronic rhythms on Barcelona’s nightlife?
