After a decade living in the US, childhood friends Andres and Toni returned home to Barcelona, fulfilled but with a sense of melancholy. They missed the warmth of the bars of their youth where they’d made new friends from all over the world and developed a passion for American craft beer and food.
Determined to keep an ember of the adventure burning, they opened Coco Vail Beer Hall, the embodiment of their golden years abroad. Intimate and laid-back, the “SoCal beach bar” vibes are achieved with friendly service and long rows of chunky wooden tables that are perfect for making new friends. 24 beer taps offer the best from Catalunya’s brewers and a hearty menu features soul food classics such as pulled-pork sandwiches, burgers, sweet-potato fries and the house-special chicken wings.
Stop by for on Tuesdays for college night with €2 shots and €4 euro mixed drinks from 11pm, Wednesdays for €10 bottles of wine or Sundays, which are all about NFL. As Andres says: “This isn’t just a bar, it’s a feeling, a community.”
