The Chana, an authentically Andalusian bar in Barcelona

Written by Adriana

You already can add a bar in your Sunday route to have a drink with your friends! La Chana is a bar in Barcelona serving typical tapas and drinks from southern Spain located ​​in Poble Sec and is here to stay with the summer warm weather. Who does not appreciate good food and good drinks? The locals are always happy to discover a new trendy bar where they can go to spend Sundays, especially now that summer begins, so find it yourself on the 8 Poeta Cabanyes Street, and tell us what you think about this new place…

A delicious traditional gastronomy

la-chana-1-1024x626As a girl born in Barcelona I don’t know all the tapas consumed in the south of Spain, but what I do know is that my Andalusian friends what they miss the most from their hometowns is eating the delicious and cheap tapas of all kinds from there, and drinking a caña, a manzanilla or a barbadillo. This is exactly what these nostalgic people (and everybody) will find in La Chana… Tapas of caracolillos (little snails), of calamari, of potatoes with melva, of salmorejo, of anchovy tuna, of payoyo cheese, of mojama, or of fried fish among other things, all top quality and made with fresh products. Besides all this while enjoying this fabulous food that would melt any hungry heart, you can listen to the best rock’n’roll, soul, punk-rock, jazz, or garage music, from 11am to 4’30pm and from 7pm to 11pm from Tuesday to Saturday, and from 12pm to 4’30pm on Sundays.

The inspiration comes from some San Lucar de Barrameda images

Those who have come to this place are already regular customers in one single month since La Chana opened, and they say everything has a very affordable price. You should give it a chance for sure!

From ShBarcelona we suggest you discover this place and others, so you can create your own map of the city, with your own favorite places. Oh! And don’t forget to share them with us and our readers…

  • Hi, this is a wonderful site, thanks. Do you know what the neighborhood is called where I will be staying so I can make the most of my four days there, and not waste a lot of time looking for a good healthy place to eat some inexpensive food and meet people?

    I think I may have shows in a location that’s far from food and markets & blgood tapas bars etc. I am only in Barcelona for an a half days, and do not want to spend a lot of time cooking or looking for food & A little conversation. (I’m in Ashland, Oregon & would be happy to return the favor anytime! ). Also where to go in 9/11…
