La Plata is a small bar in the corner of the pedestrian streets Merce and la Plata in the Gothic Neighborhood, that keeps the charm of the old taverns with top quality raw material, not so easy to find any more, a classic place for locals and a fun discovery for foreigners. It is just served what is called “raciones” (small plates) of recent fried sardines, tomato salad with onions and olives, fresh anchovies, pa amb tomàquet with butifarra (sausage) and wine from the barrel or beer, short choice but simple, homemade and good. Established in the 1920s this small corner bar decorated with tiles halfway up, an old refrigerator, wine barrels, 6 small iron and marble tables and some chairs, a short bar and two big windows that open to the streets keeps its quality and tradition year after year. Closed in the month of August.
The Bar La Plata is near La Mercé Church at the Mercé Square (Plaça de la Mercé) and also near to our Barcelona apartments Ramblas Mansion A and Ramblas Mansion B in the Carrer Avinyo close to Carrer Ample.
