Valentina LPA. First place to drink vermouth in Las Palmas
We can say that Valentina LPA was one of the first vermouth bars in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. In fact, on their façade they call themselves “vermutería” or vermouth bar.

Maripili Las Palmas, Plaza del Pilar-La Cicer
This place has become one of the coolest places to go for vermouth in Las Palmas, but also to eat. In addition, it is in the Plaza del Pilar, very popular for being a meeting point for a drink in the city. Both the interior of the restaurant, as well as its outdoor terrace, are very worthwhile. In their menu they have yummy street food to accompany the vermouth. We recommend the patacones, the fish and chips and the cheeseburger.
La Bikina, Las Canteras
Another of the classics to drink vermouth in Las Palmas is La Bikina Cantina in the middle of Las Canteras promenade. Here you can accompany the vermouth with a gastronomic offer of international dishes to share such as tacos, samosas, Hawaiian pokés, etc. It’s pretty cheap and the atmosphere is great.
