Tahiti – bringing a tiki touch to Barcelona
Despite a generally gloomy outlook for the Spanish economy, the last several months have seen a swell in Barcelona’s cocktail culture, perhaps as a way to drown our sorrows or – more optimistically – as a clink of the glass towards a brighter future.
Until recently, cocktails had been reserved for more chic areas of the city, where some of the most famous cocteleros (or cocktail waiters) offer up their experimental creations for a discerning crowd.
Rather unexpectedly then, Tahiti has found a home for itself in the scruffy heart of Raval, giving a nod to the golden era of fifties Americana with an elegant tiki-twist. The bartenders are all immaculately suited behind the red-vinyl bar (you’ll find no Hawaiian shirts here – unless you’re wearing one) and will happily mix you a classic Old Fashioned or Mai Tai while you wait in the classic diner-style booth, listening to smooth pacific melodies on the jukebox. Get there early to avoid a sobering queue.
