FAQ. Is it safe to buy beers from street vendors in Barcelona?

Answer. It is not advisable. If you are out at night in the Gràcia or Ciutat Vella areas of Barcelona and popular tourist areas like Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas walking street, then you might often be offered beers (cervesas) by street vendors. We advise you not to buy beer from street vendors. First of all the beers are not cold. If that is not bad enough for you then consider this; there is a definite health risk, because many of the street vendors store their stash of beer cans under sewer manhole covers, so buying street beers in Barcelona is about as unsanitory as it is can be. On the moral side, while it might seem convenient and 1 euro cheaper than going to a bar, it's illegal and it hurts local bar and restaurant owners. Finally it often creates litter as many cans are left on the street. Add all these reasons up and the conclusion is that it is a better idea to buy cold and bug-free beers in bars or in the many convenience stores in Barcelona.
