Chiringuitos means beach bars in English. In Barcelona you will find many chiringuitos at the beach. On hot summer days, when you are relaxing on the beach, it is very nice to go and chill with a drink and a snack while still being on the beach!
When the summer arrives, the chiringuitos will open. During the day you can enjoy some food and drinks, and at night you can cool off with a nice drink and some background music. In Barcelona you can find lots of them, and some are very luxurious and fancy. Originally chiringuitos were only supposed to offer food and drinks, but nowadays in Barcelona they have waiters coming to the tables, live DJ’s, and much more!
At night most chiringuitos transform into a beach party so beware. Keep in mind though that chiringuitos are usually not very cheap since they are located right on the beach.
