Taberna Gerardo / Almacen de Vinos
A lively and unpretentious wine bar off Cava Baja
Tipple of choice: Try the Txacoli, a young white wine from the Basque Country.
A wonderful, historic and very popular tapas bar just off Cava Baja where you can get some of the best Spanish wines by the glass with your tapas. The tavern is also known as Almacen de Vinos, which translates into 'Storehouse of Wines.' Huge vats of wine are stacked in the back, and up front, smaller ones are used to hold wine to be poured into casks and sold to locals. The tapas and raciones are varied and good, and the friendly staff are happy to teach you about the tavern's huge selection of wines.
