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.

Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
