Tiny, backstreet French style bar that has become quite infamous for....well to put it politely, for being a bit shabby but also for its live music and for serving Pastis! It is crowded when there are about a dozen people in there. It was opened...More

In a small little alley a small little bar with live music, absint in the glasses and far away from the hype and hipster world. Spanish, friendly and a must, just 50 meters from Rambla.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
