You Can’t Go Wrong With Spanish Fare at Barcelona Wine Bar

With its huge windows, rich hardwoods, and subway tiles, Barcelona is certainly one of the most atmospheric dinner spots in the area. The wine list has hundreds of selections of Mediterranean wines, and the constantly rotating tapas menu will make you feel like you’re closer to Catalonia than DC. Combined with the extensive menu of fresh, authentic Mediterranean and Spanish dishes, Barcelona is an experience unlike any other restaurant in town.  

If you’re stopping by for a drink and a quick bite, regulars recommend the happy hour specials, which include 50% off wine bottles on Mondays. You might pair a glass of wine with  a charcuterie and cheese board, featuring the popular the drunken goat cheese. For dinner, don’t miss the albondigas, the whole roasted fish or the salvaje paella, which is large enough to share.
