The 5 Best Squares to Meet up with Friends | Shall we Meet in the Plaza?
Meeting up to go for a drink is one of the best ways to have fun with friends. The squares of our towns and cities are the perfect meeting place, especially if they have pleasant terrazas where you can have a drink outside, and a good ambiance at all times of day. If you want to meet up, below we recommend 5 of the best squares to have a drink in some of the main cities of Spain.
Barcelona: Plaça Reial
Plaça Reial is a colonial-style square in the heart of the city of Barcelona, within spitting distance of Las Ramblas. With colonnades on all four sides, this large square is chock-full of cafés, restaurants and well-known music venues. All year round, it is a meeting place for locals and people from all over the world.
Madrid: Plaza de San Andrés
Located in the heart of the capital’s lively La Latina district, Plaza de San Andrés is situated next to the church of the same name. Although it is not very large, it is a perfect place to go for a drink and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. In addition to being a nice spot, it is easy for everyone to get to because it is so centrally-located.
Valencia: Plaza del Tossal
In the centre of the old town of Valencia, this square is a great place to meet up, especially in the late afternoon, when the sun is not so overbearing. As the hours go by, you will see how the square fills up and the atmosphere becomes that much livelier.
Bilbao: Plaza Nueva
Plaza Nueva, built in the neoclassical style, is a meeting place in the centre of Bilbao’s old town. The square is surrounded by arches, all of which are occupied by restaurants and bars with their terrazas. This lively place is perfect for getting together at any time of day for tapas, drinks or just have a good time.
Zaragoza: Plaza Seo
Right at the end of the hugely popular and centrally-located Plaza del Pilar, you will find Plaza Seo, which is next to the labyrinthine old town and the liveliest streets of Zaragoza. It is the perfect place to meet up for a drink before venturing into the hubbub of Zaragoza for lunch or dinner.
