Tibidabo is the name of the small mountain looming over Barcelona like an ever-vigilant sentinel peering out to sea. Part way up the side of it, through winding streets of former villages-turned-suburbs like Sarria and Vallcarca, you’ll find this small neighborhood bar and restaurant with the out-sized, sweeping views. Really, this is a locals spot.
What you want to do here is order a gintonic from the extensive menu – I suggest Mare with pink peppercorn Schwepp’s – and sit talking about life, loves, dreams, and hopes for tomorrow and forever. After all, as her name suggests, Tibidabo has the power to give them all to you.
