Enchanted forest bar.

Quirky bar, in the style of an enchanted forest, next to the waxworks. Well worth a visit, it's dark and different.

A really charming and earthly themed bar, with fairies and forrest for tables, it feels like wonderland. Drinks are not expensive and it feels like a secret garden you've encountered.

You could easily miss this place as it is located off the Ramblas and down a side street. Really different setting, quirky with lots of space inside. Service was great and drinks are very reasonable given the location. Hard to do this place justice but really good.

What a beautiful well hidden gem this place is!!. We were lucky enough to have someone recommend this place to us, and so glad we went there to check it out. Definitely head there towards the end of the evening, when after a long day sightseeing you can sit, relax and soak up this amazing bar, and then do it... More

This is an interesting bar to see but only because of the interior. The quality of the sangria was one of the lowest we have had so I would not recommend for anything but quick photos.

The atmosphere and vibe are the main atractions of the place. Trees, the sound of rain and waterfalls, low lighting and lots of little surprising, special details everywhere. Great for romantic, intimate dates, as well as larger groups of friends. Unfortunatelly, I didn`t eat anything here, but the other people`s food looked amazing. Original, creative, unique, inovative, fascinating, hypnotizing, hypnotic.

Just off La Rambla and near the wax museum I would not have known this place existed had one of our party not been before. The inside is quite dark, set up like a fairytale land with artificial trees and every so often it goes even darker with a fake thunderstorm. The bar serves a good range of drinks, spirits,... More

This place is delightful. Again down a back street. The bar is like a forest inside with trees and waterfalls. Really different. Great coffee and atmosphere. The thunder was authentic too.

In several past visits, we never came across this place but now found it, on recommendation - it's definitely worth a visit for its unusual interior, which was evidently great for families with kids!

Beautiful hidden gem, with fairies and lights on a tree. The Enchanted Forest! Literally just off La Ramblas heading toward the beach/sea. Fabulous margheritas. A must for any traveller.
