Excellent night!

Great little hidden gem hiding away down a side street in La Ramblas. Cocktails are lovely as are the staff and the prices are very reasonable in comparison to others in that area. It's a cosy little bar with the unique post it notes on the wall that you can add to. Definitely recommend.

Hungry and thirsty, we were strolling around the Gothic area and suddenly bumped into the bar, small and dark. Inside there were only 3 extremely noisy and very happy Spanish guys, who were occasionally singing songs and were banging the table sometimes :) We had some beer and patatas bravas. Yummy! We didn't know "First" bar is famous for its... More

On recommendation to visit First Bar, we found it an absolute delight. The atmosphere is incredibly fun with post it notes as decor. The staff were extremely friendly and remembered exactly what our order was on our third visit.

Pretty solid Daiquiri, nice music & nothing more. Prices are not a bargain and I expected more after reading so many great opinions.

I discovered this place by accident but felt right at home in this bar. The atmosphere is really fun and laid back. Cocktails are cheap and really delicious. You won't get your standard rum and coke here! The bartenders put a lot of effort and imagination into the cocktail menu. Highly recommended for a fun night out in Barcelona!

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
