The Bar

Bar Canigó

Since 1922

According to the term, Bar describes a place where customers consume alcoholic (or not) drinks, aperitif, coffee, infusion and some dishes like tapas, sandwiches or salads.

The bar is, furthermore, a popular social phenomenon that marked not only the culture as the own habit across generations. Today, despite the recent technologic changes, it's still the favourite meeting point among friends, lovers & colleagues, and family too!

The most common easiest formula to meet in these places is: see you at the corner bar.

History

History

Historic photo of the bar

There are two relevant facts in 1922's Barcelona: the opening of the city's Historic database, in Ciutat Vella* and on July 1st the opening of the Bar Canigó. With the discovering of Tutankhamen's tomb, there are no other anniversaries of major events that year.

Mr Pep Parcerisas, grandfather of the actual owners, acquired the local of an old cellar where he worked time ago and started to sell drinks, for lesser than a peseta, before the Spanish Civil War.

He named the bar Canigó for a laconic reason: friend from the owner of the actually closed Montseny bar, he chose another emblematic mountain from our lands to name his. No more poetry needed.

Time goes by, everything change, lots of things happened and his son, Mr Miquel del Canigó took the reins of the business. Besides her wife, Ms Mª Enriqueta, whose potato omelette and croquettes were unbeatable, they served not only breakfasts but home-made dishes still mentioned by customers from that time.

The "little girls", Mr Pep's granddaughters, adapt to people's evolution, transformed into a night bar until few year when the founder's third grandson and his great-granddaughter came back to near centenary family business. They re-opened from the mornings to grant you sixteen hours a day of Canigó, same as always, same with the people.

*Ciutat Vella (literally in Catalan "Old Town") is a Barcelona neighbourhood.
