Dirty tables, poor wine, unfortunately, the place is very dark and small. A typical place for teenagers...

Found this bar just off la rambla. Not big but nice and cozy. There weren't many people but it was a nice break from the crowded bars along la rambla. The live music was awesomeee ! Drinks were decently priced and we had a free shot too. The post-it wall was a great idea too!

Small with only few seats. Very loud music. We found it disturbing. Nothing to see outside since it is in a small sidestreet. Fun with all the post it stickers on the walls.

I intended to visit this place due to trip advisor review. Just when we pass near its location - we got advertise note for First bar. That should give me warning about the place since I never go to places that deliver notes in street. When we get in, the place was empty with only few youth in. We order... More

Really cool place with walls covered in post it note messages. Had some cocktails before moving onto a restaurant, but ate in there and were not disappointed. We would definitely return if we visit Barcelona again.

Went there 2 weeks ago with my bf. cute little bar with nice interior design, very empty the entire night which was probably cause it was off-season though. We came cause a woman outside gave us a flyer which apparently said we could have free tapas with every drink. Sounded great! Although the service was friendly, the tapas stopped coming... More

This is an excellent little bar just off one of the main squares off La Rambla. We had just been for a very disappointing meal in one of the restaurants on the square on the last night of our holiday, and popped in here for a quick drink. I can honestly say that from the first sip of the drink,... More

Fantastic lively bar just off La Rambla. Cosy and comfortable layout makes it easy to socialise with your own group or meet new people. The night that I was there, there was a great mix of different nationalities and a very friendly atmosphere. The cocktails are fantastic - fresh and tasty. I tried the First burger and it was delicious... More
