El Pez Vela: a modern beach bar

Barcelona, Gastronomy

It’s “chiringuito” time. “Chiringuitos” are traditional Spanish beach bars always full during the summertime with friends hanging out to have something to drink and eat in front of the sea. And, what if we now told you that there is a “chiringuito” that goes beyond the classic concept of this summer essential? We’re talking about Pez Vela, one of the beach restaurants that Grupo Tragaluz has right under the W Hotel, a new concept of “chiringuito” that has turned paellas and salads into the main attraction of their menu.
Pez Vela is characterized by a spacious and open space, with sea views no matter which table you’re sitting at, as if you were practically in a bay. The design, the freshness and the Mediterranean details give this place a unique personality. It is, in short, a modern beach bar that keeps that casual, youthful and cheerful atmosphere typical of popular “chiringuitos”.
And if there is something that makes it special and different from the rest of restaurants that can be found in the lively area of La Barceloneta, it’s its Mediterranean gastronomy based on quality and fresh products. Chef Evaristo Triano leads the kitchen team under the motto of “make paella and not war”. Thus, Pez Vela becomes the perfect place to enjoy a more than good paella, the wild fish of the day or the ox chop made on the natural charcoal grill, among other suggestive proposals.
So… let’s go to the beach? Remember that if you stay at our hotel in Paseo de Gracia you can always enjoy a dinner or a lunchtime at Pez Vela by hiring the “Omm at the beach” pack through our website when booking your room reservation. And enjoy your summer in Barcelona!
