Meeting friends for a meal, with an hour to kill before your restaurant opens? Or linking up with them for an hour after work? Here in Barcelona, you may well head for a vermuteria. There’s vermouth of course, served simply with ice and lemon or in exotic combinations. You can have wine or beer instead if you choose. Order a dish of olives or a simple tapa. But best of all, enjoy the friendly atmosphere, and relish a cosy convivial moment in a place that may well have been around for over fifty years. And will still be here in fifty more.

  1. I like the second part of your sentence / about waiting for an hour just for the opening of your restaurant….. This is SO English! Made me laugh out loud…. love you Margaret

      1. Of course!!! MY approach would have been ‘We went for a long and savoury drinkies’ hour’ before moving over to the restaurant 😉 😉 I didn’t mean to be mean, it just made me laugh because that was one of the major differences of living in UK vs living in F —-> you have your food FAR earlier in UK than in F/P/S

      2. Oh, English meal times are dreadful, though getting better. Evening activities generally start at 7.30, so how are you meant to cram in a meal before that? More vermuterias might help…..
