Humuhumu’s description

Cocteleria Tahiti was tiki bar very near the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art. Cocteleria Tahiti's mission was to bring the quality of Barcelona tiki back to the '40s and '50s, and to be a departure from the '70s tiki bars found in the city. The decor was lighter than what is seen in some of the other Barcelona tiki bars, but they were serving classic drink recipes from Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic'san area where other Barcelona tiki bars fall down. Cocteleria Tahiti opened in March 2010, and closed in mid-2016.

On a past visit to Barcelona I had gone past this place while they were closed, but it was definitely a tiki bar then--there was signage proclaiming the name "Tahiti" and a separate tiki bar sign. On my most recent visit in June 2016, all previous traces of its identity as Tahiti had disappeared. While it is still a cocktail bar, it's definitively no longer a tiki bar.

Cocteleria Tahiti blew me away. The attention to the drinks and their history was nothing short of relevatory. Nearly all their ingredients are made in-house (I got to sample their pimento dram and orgeat - just outstanding) and even their in-house creations are balanced and creative, with nods to classic drinks. Even though the decor is a Tahitian beach bar, instead of tiki, vibe, it is tasteful and there isn't a TV screen in sight!
