Tickets Bar is ranked 29 on The World’s 50 Best restaurants in the world! Tickets Bar is fun, innovative and the best restaurant in Barcelona! The restaurant is circus themed which makes for a fun experience. The food is gastronomic and one of the most imaginative tapas experience I’ve ever had, they even have a secret dessert bar that takes you into a fairy tale candy land.
Tickets Bar is owned by two brothers, Albert and Ferran Adrià. They have multiple restaurants in the area and all have great reviews. If you’re unable to get reservations to Tickets, I suggest trying one of their other popular restaurants: Pakta, Bodega 1900, Hoja Santa and Nino Viejo.
How to Get Reservations: Reservations are required and are available two months out. They open the reservation at midnight. Give yourself a few available days for dinner and have an alarm set to make reservations on their website. The website tends to crash but keep refreshing and opting for different times. I was able to get reservations the second day of trying and boy was I happy! You can make a reservation here
After two months of anticipation, the day has arrived! The place is casual, fun and I was blown away by every single dish! Everything I ate was unexpected and blew my mind away!
We ordered quite a bit but everything is small and bite size. It was the perfect amount and I was completely content with everything we had! The olives were definitely unique. I wish I could have tried more food but we wanted to leave room for dessert. There is nothing bad here so anything ordered will be more then exceptional.
The restaurant has a secret dessert bar hidden in the back. With very limited seating, not everyone is able to experience it. I asked if we could get seated there and lucky for us we got a seat! Once I walked into the room I felt like I was in a fairy tale candy land! Strawberries were hanging from the ceiling and when we got seated there was a rose on the table that had edible jelly in the middle! We gave them the option to provide us with their best desserts.
There’s no other tapas bar in the world quite like Tickets. It’s truly a fun, innovative and one of the most creative and best restaurants in Barcelona! For such a great dining experience, the meal was a little over $100 per person USD. It was very affordable and I was very surprised how cheap it was for the amount of food we had. Don’t leave Barcelona without trying Tickets or at least one of the multiple restaurants from the Adrià Brothers.
