This place may have had some good reviews in the past but, trust me it's gone way downhill since then! Visited it on Sunday 8/6/14 for a night-cap as we were staying the the hotel next door. We had 2 small beers and 2 Baileys and were charged 18 Euros! And worse of all was the nice big cockroach running... More

Opened in 1910, this famous tavern was once frequented by such illustrious figures as Ernest Hemingway and Joan Miró, and even Dalí and Picasso were known to drop by on occasion. The faded splendor of the art deco interior still hints at London Bar’s eventful history, and the venue’s patterned tiled floors, gold-framed photos, dusty piano, and ochre walls lend... More

We went here on recommendation from trip advisor and it was exactly what was expected. The spanish band who were playing were amazing and the service was friendly. We even went back later in the week.

It was on our way between Tacos Tacos and walking to Arc de Triomf and we were interested to see the pub where Gaudi & Hemingway used to drink. I was impressed by the barmaid, we got served quickly even though it was busy, my sangria was gorgeous, the best I've ever had and the pub looks like a traditional... More

Just off Las Ramblas the London Bar is the oldest in Catalunia having been built in around 1906. The owner is extremely friendly and makes a mean mojito. Very well priced for drinks, we found this little haven last year and made a bee line for it again this year.

Took my son here to show him that there is more to Barcelona than the Hard Rock Café and the Irish Bars! He thought it was a bit of a dive but my round in the Irish bar was 10 euros. For his round here he got change out of 5 euros for 2 pints. Smiles all round. Once a... More

I am usually somewhat cynical about the "must visit" places in tourist guide books. But the London Bar is definitely the exception.. It's tatty and looks as though it hasn't been decorated since 1920. The loos must have already looked past their prime when the Spanish Civil War was raging. But the London Bar has atmosphere, even though it's tiny.... More

Acoustic guitarplayer, lovely bartender lady, great people and really nice owner. Caipirinhas are worth trying. Relaxed and positive atmosphere. Highly recommended place! -Marko&Erika from Finland-

Came here as part of a Lonely Planet walking tour because Hemingway used to come here for a beer. Most notable aspect of ny visit was the South American lady performing her one woman show which comprised of songs, multiple hats and some balloons which simulated breasts. Still the drinks weren't too expensive and its location close to Las Ramblas... More
