Can Paixano (La Xampanyeria)

Can Paixano, best known as La Xampanyeria is a traditional bar, in the heart of the Barceloneta neighbourhood, famous for its cava – a typical Catalonian sweet sparkling wine – which is best enjoyed with a side of tapas and bocadillos (sandwiches). La Xampanyeria is a quite popular bar among travellers and locals, so it is continuously packed. Stand wherever you can find space, and don't be afraid to gently push your way through the crowd to place your order.

Bars & Nightlife

Barcelona stays awake while the rest of Europe sleeps. Nightlife starts late, preferably at a bar. Catalans believe it’s smart to eat while drinking, so most bars also serve tapas. Barcelona’s trendy nightlife is constantly changing, so the best advice is to ask around for the latest and greatest places.
