Founded in 1969, year by year has been consolidated as a must for all those who want to have a different view of Barcelona. The Champañeria (or Can Paixano) is a small bar in Spanish can be called “tasca”, typical and unmarked.
You will notice because at the entrance there are always many people who are trying to. Entering immediately see hams hanging dozens, stored for maturing. It will seem impossible, but take my advice: come in and go all the way, there is always more place at the end of the shop. Do not be scared, it can happen that someone will glance at the quarry, but the place is so narrow and full of people that is almost inevitable. There being no seats you need to earn a place at the bar at least for the rest glasses. Once you let them go your senses and experience a true culinary experience.

Try their amazing jamon, order one of the many bocadillos offering the menu and do not forget to also try some tapas. Do not miss the chorizo ​​and morcilla! Clearly, all accompanied by a couple of bottles of cava rosé, the star of the shop. The prices are really cheap, average not spend more than 10 euro each and I assure you that you have eaten and drank a lot. At the end remember to dispose of dirty tissues on the floor (appreciation) and do not forget to take some pictures. My advice is to get out and get to the corner bar for a coffee and a bit of rest.

The Champañeria is located in Carrer de la Reina Cristina, between the Port Vell, the Borne and Barceloneta, right next to Barcelona’s Head (Cabeza de Barcelona in Spanish) sculpture by Roy Lichtenstein.
In the back there is a kind of store where you can buy various types of cava (Catalan champagne on typical), meat and fish.
You can buy the “Selecte”, which is the most economical choice, the “Rosat” or pink champagne (my favorite), and finally the “Brut Nature.” Remember that the prices are incredibly low to be in Barcelona.
Can Paixano opens around midday and closes at 22 pm and is ideally suited to fill the hole in my stomach. It is important to follow these tips:
– never go to Champañeria clothes well .. it is impossible to come out clean!
– order all at once, there is enough to wait between order and more!
From the site official put Paixano Can you order your products.
The restaurant is recommended by several guidebooks.
