There are two types of vermouth bars in town: the new and modern, and those that have been around forever. In both categories, you'll find good ones and others that don't quite measure up. La Vermuteria del Tano stands proudly in the second category on its corner in Gràcia, where it's often frequented by locals from the neighbourhood. Tano's well-deserved recognition comes after the bar has been around for more than half a century. You'll find vermouth from the Emporadà region, which used to be sold from the barrel to take away as well, and ice-cold beer. When you're feeling peckish, order from among the quality 'conservas' – tins of tasty seafood and veg. Among the assortment are anchovies, cockles, mussels, cuttlefish and artichokes. And always get a bag of Torres potato chips to add to the authentic feel of this bar with classic marble tabletops to boot.
