Fun place - Cool Concept. At first we walked past the line (10 m long) and then chatted with the doorman. Saw the barber chair and figured we had to check this out. After about a 15 -20 min wait we entered and (I will leave the details to you)- were seated at the bar (excellent). Bartenders were doing their Tom Cruise thing, finally ordered a drink, waited 20 minutes more and got them. Hawaii was good, a strong drink but sweet. The line outside was the old school "create a buzz" as there were available seats. Anyway.. a fun time until we paid the bill and were told.."hey guys, if you are just sitting there you need to go, but you can do a shot with me.." not like we were staying after finishing our drinks to hang out but hey we just spent 100 euro and that was only as good as 5 mins after paying "gotta go"... That was the negative part. Otherwise the place you go once and have fun.

Spent 3 nights here during our 6 day break in Barcelona - must find the password of the month as it is hidden inside a barbers.

Great cocktails, friendly staff and quick service. Highly recommended to anyone looking for creative cocktails.

Love the bar, was lovely to return in December. The staff working in the bar are always friendly and efficient. The only downside this time was the man upstairs was extremely rude when we arrived. When we got there, we asked if there was room to enter, he just said no. That was it. Not, no there isn't at the moment but you can wait if you like etc. I then asked if it was possible to wait, he just snapped back yes. After around 15 minutes people came out so we were able to enter, but he didn't speak to us, just pointed to go through. It is a shame as the whole attraction to the bar is the barber shop entrance, password etc. I took someone that hadn't been before so the experience entering was not the same and it put them off. The Covid restrictions are hard on everyone, but if you are a business open, don't drop your game, otherwise people won't return.

Such a pity! We were a group of 8 people who came to barcelona for 3 days. On a saturday night we decided on going to Bobby’s Free Bar. Since the queue was a lot, before waiting we wanted to make sure that we could go inside and asked the staff that we were 8. The man told us to be “patient”. After waiting for 1.5 hours, when we were the first in the line, the staff told us that we cannot go inside because we were 8 people. He told us that the maximum capacity for a group is 7. We found an alternative and said that we could sit seperately. He insisted that dividing groups is prohibited. SUCH A RIDICULOUS ACT! The man called Francisco further yelled at us and wanted us to go immediately. Do not go there! Rude staff, long queue and there a lot of other bars that are great.

Low and behold this secret cocktail bar was pess than 5 minute walk from our hotel. Just round the corner from placa de catalunya.

Without ruining it too much this place really does feel like you are back in time and the atmosphere is amazing. The secret entrance is a nice added touch and the cocktails are different but still really nice.

Must visit, highly recommend

Absolutely fabulous! Staff were excellent, the waitress was very friendly and explained the drinks etc. The barman was very professional and the cocktails are very well thought out.

You have to find out the password online to enter the bar, as it has a secret entry system. Takes you back in time and is great fun.

I will definitely be returning and recommending it to all of my friends that visit Barcelona.

We were a group of 8 and waited 1.5 hours in the line. The guy on the door , Francisco, told us they can’t accept groups more than 7 even though we already told him we were 8, and he refused to split us by 4. He just said it’s impossible and basically ignored us. We wasted our saturday night on the queue. He was rude and ruined our weekend.

The whole concept from discovering the password to the barber shop front and the whole 1920's Speakeasy vibe is pure genius. Everyone should visit for the experience and atmosphere. We intend to return with our daughter as soon as we are allowed to travel to Barcelona fromm England.

This is a must in Barcelona! Perfect for both a drink after dinner or a start of a fun night on the town. A rare experience of going into a true speakeasy where the cocktails are well crafted and the bar tenders take pride in the drinks. Great friendly service from the wait staff. The guy who greets you in the barber shop is hilarious! They had live music and he was actually good.

Pro tip: Try the smokey cocktail. It’s an experience and a great photo op. Also, green lady is delicious.
