A tiny bar with a lot of history, if you want to feel like a local, or avoid the crowd, go early, 1pm kind of early. Then you get to enjoy the bar and its history and atmosphere without the chaos.

Boadas is a fantastic throwback cocktail bar that transports patrons to another time and place. The bartenders were so great and made quite possibly the tastiest mojito I've ever had in my life (note: my family is Cuban and I'm from Miami. I've tried plenty of mojitos in my lifetime). My boyfriend had a dirty vodka martini which he said... More

This was recommended by a cocktail bartender to us and I was slightly wary when the location was given in the Rambla It is a fantastic place that you would walk by if you did not know it was there. Very small and cosy but because it's hidden everyone is there for the great cocktails. Forgot that they did not... More

When you leave the hundreds of tourists on Las Ramblas, you arrive at this wonderful bar full of old school legends. The staff are dressed as though it's the 1930's and the decor isn't far off. The drinks are expertly made by friendly bar tenders with years of experience. It's a tiny bar, without the loud music of most others... More

Boadas has been serving cocktails since 1933 so plainly it's been doing it right! The bar itself is small, no more than 15-20 seats, but its well deserved reputation is huge. There's no drinks menu as such. You either ask for cocktails you already know or just tell the barman what kind of drinks you like and he'll concoct one... More

Went for a drink in the cocktail bar and as we are used to seeing cocktail menu's was surprised when they said "no menus". Which goes to show the wealth of knowledge their bar staff have in making cocktails. I had a mojito and my friend had a strawberry daiquiri which was quite lovely. We only stayed for one drink...

For those who are not considered as bar geeks, I am since a bartending is my job . . Only had a chance to see two or three older bars. This is tip - top, small, cosy, great staff and no trends, making drinks like in 1940 . .

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
