Located in the middle of Barcelona, not the biggest place, but the drinks and shots are very good. The Post-its on the walls are a great idea and creats the atmosphere

First Bar is a small and cosy bar with a great atmosphere! The cocktails are delicious (I loved the Moulin Rouge made with fresh strawberries and vodka) and the food is great too. Staff are friendly and you're sure to find people from all over the world in this small but perfectly-formed little bar right near the bustling Plaza Real.... More

Inside you're able to write on small postit notes and post your thoughts, memories and anything you want on the wall! I wrote something to a friend telling them to get to Barcelona. A week later they were there, and you know, they found the note I wrote! Amazing! The cocktails are amazing, well balanced, good sizes, the right amount... More

At first we went in because of the novelty of all the post it notes covering the wall-which looked amazing! But after our first visit we returned almost every night because of the good music and great cocktails. I thoroughly recommend!

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
