La caseta del Migdia

Considered to be one of Barcelona’s best kept secrets, La Caseta de Migdia is a magical space, scattered with deck-chairs, hammocks and candlelit tables. DJs spinning funk, rare groove and lounge alternate with a faltering string quartet. Just follow the Camí del Mar footpath around Montjuïc castle to find one of the few vantage points from which to watch the amazing city of Barcelona.

Because it combines mountains and sea, Barcelona is a city of breathtaking views  so you cannot miss watching cruise liners and container ships arriving and leaving on the blue sea far below you, or look north along the coast to the mountains of the Costa Brava, and of course the best sunsets of Barcelona. (If you go in the evening, take a jersey, as temperatures are significantly cooler on the heights of Montjuic).

The ambiance is a unique one, thanks to the beautiful location and many travelers seem to find their way to this little café nestled in the trees.

What appears at first to be a small wooden cabin, is indeed one of the trendiest places to hang out in Barcelona.

At La Caseta del Migdia, the tables are arranged informally under the resinous pine trees. Order a cold beer, barbecued chicken, Butifarra (catalan sausage) corn cob and salad, and relax in a rural setting quite removed from the noise and bustle of the city.

On summer time (June – September) it’s open on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday for lunch and dinner times.

In autumn and winter (October – May) it is open on Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 12 until sunset time.
