In 2015, La Penúltima had to change its Facebook page status to “permanently closed,” since the gay bodega was shut down over license issues. A great loss to Barcelona’s gay nightlife. But hey, just as we’d moved our online social lives to Instagram – #instagay – around the same time that La Federica by Alberts opened its doors.
The locale was bought by Albert and Albert who maintained the previous owners’ retro-modern décor; they just gayed things up a notch. In addition to drinks, wines and cocktails, the bar offers excellent tapas such as embutidos from Garrotxa, award-winning shepherd cheeses and Argentinean empanadas. They’re also a busy LGBT events agenda.
The Alberts are clearly not just in pursuit of your likes: they want to make you feel completely at home at their little LGBT locale in Poble Sec. Make sure you check in soon.
