The area
Address
Neighborhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
How to get there
  • Provença • 5 min walk
  • Diagonal • 8 min walk

We were so lucky to find this place on our first evening in Barcelona. This meant we could go every night for our whole time in Barcelona [5 days]. It helped that the Bus from the centre of town stopped right outside the door to this place. The outside smoked glass doors do not let people see in, and it's only when you enter will you discover this long narrow bar and a small seating area at the end. The decor is 1970's Gentleman's Club style and the over all vibe is very much of quiet luxury harking back to the 1920's.

Each evening we sat at a stool at the bar and were always served by the same bar tender. Should have asked his name as he was very friendly and extremely polite. [slim looking young guy].

This is not the type of place to ask for a menu, but instead order your favourite classic cocktail, or they will give you recommendations according to your preferred spirit. Our's was a Negroni and we can't recommend these enough [under 10 Euro's each].

If you appreciate style, sophistication, classic cocktails, a calm environment, premium spirits and a choice to die for, then this place is for you. Make your choice and relax and watch is being made fresh right in front of you. It's amazing these places still exist as the 1920's have long gone, but we are glad this one is here.

Don't go to Barcelona without at least one late night visit to this place. A real gem!

This bar is unbelievably good. We went twice in our visit and only didn’t go more often because we discovered it with two days left. I really wish they had a location or similar bar in Boston. We enjoy cocktails and so this experience was fantastic. The bar itself is gorgeous, old fashioned and with a lot of variety of liquors, but the best part is that they dont have a menu, you tell the bartender what you want or dont want and they pick and make a drink for you. I was a bit hesitant at first but we order 6 drinks in 2 nights and all were unbelievably good. We enjoy making cocktails and have a pretty good sense of what we want and dont want and the bartenders here were spot on. I could not recommend this bar highly enough.

Out of all the countries I’ve visited and bars I’ve been to, Tandem was the best bar in the world. You can either order a specific drink if you know your alcohol, or ask them to make you a drink & they will prepare one based on flavours you like (it’s like they could see into our tastebuds and selected the perfect ones - we had three completely different cocktails all with one common ingredient and we were all blown away with how sublime they were). The price was stupidly good for the quality, this is a MUST HAVE if you’re visiting Barcelona. Super attentive staff, particularly Santiago - he made our night so special.

We wrapped up a great day and evening in Barcelona with a couple of nightcaps at Tandem. The bartenders are fantastic. They know all the classics and improvise when you present something unique to them. Can’t wait to go back.

We went yesterday evening with friends and it was completely different from before. Our waiter couldn't understand us because she was a foreigner and we are from Barcelona. We tried to explain our order and ask for recommendations but got no satisfactory answer, so we ended up drinking a standard gintonic. Please, if you hire people with no skills, just do use a written cocktail menu! We had been soo many times and it was soo good. What a pity! Never coming back, sorry.

Tandem Cocktail Bar in Barcelona is easily among the greatest bars I've been to so far - not because of the classy and cozy interior, the friendly and competent staff, or the good ambience (which it has en masse!!), but because the drinks you'll get there are absolutely mind-blowing! They've got all the standard cocktails, which they prepare to perfection, and appear to have really specialised in vintage cocktails, which is great; but their true excellency shows once you challenge the barkeepers: I'm a huge fan of the classic Manhattan cocktail, which I told the barkeeper, and he offered to come up with a twist on it, and boy did he deliver! After asking some basic questions as to my preferences of different flavours, he created the perfect cocktail for me. I've only rarely seen such craftsmanship, understanding both of spirits as well as customers, and flawless delivery and presentation. Most highly recommended!!!

They make every cocktail that you liked. What we found out was the best cocktail was when you tell them what you like and they will make something similar to that but just better. Ex I told I like white rum and strawberry daiquiri and they made a good cocktail and my friend said she like pina colada and they made a good cocktail.

The bartenders make the drinks after ur request. You just tell what kind of flavours you prefer, choice of alcohol and if you like it sour or sweet. Very attentive staff and amazing cocktails. Highly recommended!

We were looking for a local bar with interesting cocktails and we hit the jackpot here! No menu - bartenders will make some of the best cocktails after you tell them what your preferences are. Reasonable prices too! ¡Hasta pronto!

My husband and I dropped in for a few drinks. There was no menu. We told the bartender what we liked and he created the best drinks we've ever had. I'll go back to Tandem every single time I'm in Barcelona.
