The bar is really cool! Thank you so much for the service Aquila, you are a great person! One of the best cocktails that I have ever tried, into the woods! Amazing! Will come again!

This is a cool bar in a great neighbourhood. Is it over-hyped? Definitely. Will you wait in line for a long time? Yes, and beware the bouncers have the biggest egos around. Is it worth it? Maybe. The drinks are inventive, and pretty tasty, the...light up menu is a good talking point, the venue interior is interesting, however service is very slow given the popularity, and it isn't as "speakeasy" as one would like. It wouldn't make a top bars list in my book, but overall I did enjoy the experience for the drinks alone.More

Bar was amazing and was cool to experience something different. The cocktails were excellent and something I hadn't experienced before. Food was also lovely and arrived quickly. Waitressing was excellent and they were quick to serve and explain each cocktail and the story behind them....We only queued for about 10 minutes for entry.More

Paradiso Bar is supposed to be a speakeasy. The entrance of it is located inside the tiny sandwich place. The idea is classic, but there is a huge shiny sign with a name of the bar above the sandwich place and a security guy with...a rope that makes a line to enter the place (because for some reason they don’t take reservations). We were ok to wait, we are New Yorkers. But in New York and LA speakeasy bars are really secret. You make a reservation and enter with a secret word or you have to really find the place because they don’t advertise the name of the place openly. For me it’s more fun this way. Proper speakeasies should be hidden. Anyways, when we got inside, I was quite impressed by the decor. The interior is stunning! The bar is very busy and loud. Bartenders are so much fun! They seem to be honestly happy and cheerful. I loved that! Our guy (he was from Milan) was super nice! We loved the creativity of all the four different cocktails we ordered (prices are normal for such a place, affordable drinks). The presentations were beautiful but the taste unfortunately wasn’t up to the look. None of the cocktails was as good as expected. I guess we are a little bit spoiled when it comes to mixologists. So at the end we were glad we stopped by and checked it out but we wouldn’t be back.More

A hidden secret super cool cocktail bar. Entrance through the “fridge door”, takes you into an amazing beautiful cocktail bar. Great service. Fantastic theatrical signature cocktails.

A speakeasy you enter through a small storefront through a door that looks like you are going into a commercial freezer. Inside the atmosphere is fantastic and that is matched by an interesting cocktail list with some of the most unique items I have even...seen. Cocktails are served with style and in unique glassware matching the theme of the drink. Staff was absolutely terrific. Would go back in a second.More

A one day stop over in Barcelona, where else are we going to go?? Absolutely sublime experience from start to finish. A warm friendly multi lingual greeting. A brief run through of the cocktails to help us choose. Cocktails came in a variety of vessels,...glass, tin, bamboo, China... Really made everything seem more interesting! The "Samurai Sling" was incredibly good, a touch of pineapple sweetness really makes it. My friend had a Pisco Sour served in a bird shaped glass and loved it. I could spend all day describing every drink, but all you need to know is that a lengthy visit here is well worth while, and won't break the bank. Very reasonably priced cocktails of exceptionally good quality!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

I doubt it. It's easy to get a table though, I wouldn't worry. They have you wait by the bar until your table is ready which takes 5 min typically.
