This little bar is located behind the Grand Hotel Central in El Born. The cocktails are divine - in particular they've devised some very different 'house' cocktails which are worth a try!

Drinks were very unique and well crafted. The bartender was super friendly and very skilled. Everyone was super nice, they didn’t have change for a large bill, so they walked up the street to get us change. We would go back again.More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
