Going for a vermouth becomes the perfect excuse to go out when you’re starving, but it’s too early to have a meal yet. The excuse to have an appetizer and get together with friends. Today we have made a list of our 6 favorite bars where you can go for a good appetizer in Girona and the Costa Brava! Because in the Mediterranean the culture of vermouth is very deeply rooted and we don’t want to lose it. Both at the seaside and in the center of the city, in these bars you can sample the best Catalan vermouth!
1. “El Vermut”, Roses
As its name suggests, in this bar you can enjoy an infinite list of the best vermouths, mainly Catalan and Empordà. If you accompany it with one of its tapas, it will taste even better. A classic vermouth.
2. El vermutet de Can Gombau, Girona
In the heart of the old quarter you will find this Rumba style bar with where you can taste anchovies, olives, chips and classic tapas of excellent quality. All of them accompanied by the owner’s spark and a good glass of vermouth. A modern classic in the middle of Girona.
3. Can Pepitu, Port de la Selva
An emblematic spot on the seafront in this fishers’ village of Alt Empordà. The prices are very cheap and they offer classic tapas, varied vermouths, combined dishes, stews… It’s worth a visit.
4. 1869, l’Escala
You can not miss this tapas bar of L’Escala for the unbeatable views it offers. Located in the middle of the village on the main beach. We recommend the croquettes and fried halves. In summer it becomes an ideal place for “tapas” and in winter a bucolic place to shelter from the North wind.
5. La Rosaleda, Girona
La Rosaleda Tasting Garden is not just a place where to have a vermouth in the shadows of the Devesa trees, it is much more than that: a social project that forms and deals with people with special difficulties.
6. Mas Gusó, Sant Pere Pescador
Its location, surrounded by nature on all four sides and with its large space, makes Mas Gusó an ideal place to stay fresh in the shade of the trees while tasting a good wine or vermouth with some of the abundant tapas that it offers you.
Whether you want to recover the tradition of having an appetizer or you have never lost it, these bars will surely not leave you indifferent. Because Girona and the Costa Brava are full of bars, and going to have a vermouth becomes a tradition that you can not miss!
