SIPS Barcelona – 3rd best bar in the world

According to The World’s 50 Best Bars, three Barcelona bars have been named the best in the world in 2022. Among them, the third place in the world was awarded to the modern creative project Sips.
The story goes that two of the best bartenders in the world came together to open the Sips bar in the heart of the Eixample district. We are talking about Mark Alvarez and Simon Caporal. The former was responsible for the cocktail bar at El Barri Adrià restaurants for seven years, while the latter ensured that the famous Artesian Bar (London) remained at the top of the list of the best bars in the world for four years in a row (2012-15).
Alvarez and Caporale pride themselves on making haute couture cocktails at ready-to-wear prices. The menu features all the great classic cocktails, but attantion is immediately focused on “Primordial”, served in a cup in the shape of a hand, “Crypta” based on kiwi, gin and armagnac, or “Pera , pera , pera” based on pear in three different extracts: fermented, distilled, juice and syrup.
The founders of Sips Bar designed it as a social space and decided to eliminate any physical separation between guests and service people. They designed an open and welcoming space where you can be inside the bar and exchange views with other guests and bartenders.
