Barça is a trendy bar-restaurant located at the Marie Heinekenplein in the pipe. One of the most lively entertainment district of Amsterdam. Barça is known for its large sun terrace.You can enjoy many specialties such as Spanish tapas, and montaditos Tostados, but also select from an extensive lunch and a la carte menu. Naturally the Spanish wines and cavas (Catalan sparkling wine) do not, they are even well represented!
