Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
Upon entering Bitter, walk down the handful of steps to descend into the dimly lit space where friendly bartenders greet you with a cheerful “Hola!” Wooden panels and sporadically placed plants evoke a sense of comfort, as if you’re visiting a cosmopolitan cabin in the woods.
You can pull up a stool at the bar or at one of the high-top tables on either side of the central walkway, or you can continue even farther to a back room where lounge-like seating and high-top tables alternate around the perimeter of the room.
The bilingual staff is on hand to serve cocktails neatly categorized by alcoholic ingredient: aperitifs and liqueurs; gin; whiskey; rum; vodka; tequila and mezcal; and “red” cocktails, or those made with the red spirit Campari.
Bitter also serves small, Spanish-inspired plates, such as sandwiches with entrecot, chicken or vegetables, baby potatoes with Romesco sauce and small arepas (a.k.a., arepitas) with provolone.
In the western state of Jalisco, Guadalajara boasts some incredible Mexican culture, including historical landmarks, idyllic neighborhoods, fun shopping, dining and live mariachi music. Paint the town read with very little green (or multicolored peso, in this instance) and explore Guadalajara cheaply.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
The Christmas season is serious business in Ecuador with much of the population practicing traditional Roman Catholic beliefs. Though Christmas is celebrated on Dec. 25, the day before might hold more cultural significance. Christmas Eve is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, or the Pase del Nino Viajero – The Passing of the Traveling Child.
