If there's one place that can be called a classic of good drinking in Gràcia, it's Elephanta. They started giving dignity to the humble gin and tonic well before it was fashionable.
In this cocktail bar you'll find 40 varieties of gin, meaning loads of inspired takes on the classic G&T (elegant and precise, however, not just a bunch of unidentifiable salad ingredients floating around) and a good bunch of cocktails in general. Often they put on exhibitions, and their service is informal yet attentive.
There's a happy hour every evening from 6pm to 8.30pm, featuring a €3 discount on every G&T – the ideal way to end a long workday or to take a break from sightseeing or shopping.
