A great find. A local bar with great music and vintage feel. Very friendly. The bar man made us feel very welcome and on our second visit remembered us and our round. Great barman, Evan. Made our Barcelona experience compete.

My favourite cocktail bar in Barcelona, been visiting this place for over 15 years and it's changed very little over that time. Superb cocktails very well crafted at around €8-€10 the surroundings are lovely and the atmosphere is fantastic, best to visit after 10pm

You never forget your first and the experience was memorable, expertly made in an environment created to calmly taste and relax. Came back several times and had other firsts like the gimlet and senior rum... miss it!

The entry to this small atmospheric cocktail bar is like an old fashioned lift, hence the name. We were first to arrive at about 5.30 on Sunday after a good day working. The owner/barkeep switched on the lights to reveal the full anterior and put...More
