Fancy a G+T? Well then, Barceloneta is definitely the place to be …
Even in the early hours of the evening Barceloneta’s La Barra is buzzing, the tapas aromas are beginning to occupy the room and the drinks are already flowing, especially the Gin + Tonics. Hidden away on the corner of Purdy Avenue, the terrace flows out along the promenade and the outdoor lounge entices passers by with it’s exposed lively atmosphere; locals know it as the place to be for the city’s best G+T’s.
Owned by a trio of friends, Daniela Rezai, Manuel Suarez-Inclan and Chef Juliana Gonzalez are passionate about serving up the finest cocktails to guests and so use the best spirits and ingredients available.
A blend of citrus, spice and bitters the cocktails are quintessentially served in a traditional brandy glass. From dried rose petals to amarena cherries, Daniela Rezai is the architect behind the venue’s original G+T menu, bringing to life a blend of cosmopolitan ingredients. The sparkling classics are made with Fever Tree Tonic Water; which Manuel describes as the best out there.
