The area
Address
Neighborhood: El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.

Lovely little bar with friendly bar staff
Oct 2019
Stumbled upon this bar whilst looking for a quick bite to eat and a drink. 4 1/2 hours later we finally left!

Was early so plenty of seats to choose from. We chose to sit at the bar so that we could chat with the two Argentinian bar staff who were extremely friendly. There is seating also at tables upstairs.

We had mixed tapas, some padron, bread and tomato, chorizo, grilled aubergine and some cheese and bread. A good combination to line our stomachs. Drinks were reasonable, we had cheaper elsewhere but the company was good.

A nice place to chill and have a drink and bite to eat. Got much busier later on.

Accidental find
Nov 2018 • Friends
Like a lot of your reviewers, we came across this little gem by accident. Amazing value, great tapas and sangria combined with really good service. The place had a really authentic feel and a great, laid back atmosphere. They even gave the recipe for the aubergine crisps.

A Little Gem in Old Barcelona
Mar 2018 • Friends
We found this place by sheer accident. The tapas was delicious and the staff very friendly. It was so good we returned twice. Old world atmosphere on a off beat alley near Tallers. Good wine and well worth a visit.

Great Find
Aug 2017 • Friends
We were walking down a side street when we came across this great bar/restaurant.. it had great music and atmosphere and so we decided to have dinner there. We were shown to our table by the friendly staff and ordered from the tapas menu. The servings were generous and well priced. The drinks were also well priced and the fantastic service from the staff made it a memorable night. We had such a great time we went back again the next night. A must visit in Barcelona.

Nice Tapas, good Sangria and nice service by the staff.

Lovely place for a date but works well for a group too (not sure you'll have space though).
