Had the best experience at Paradiso. The ambiance was amazing. Each and every staff made us feel welcomed. The drinks were worth it. The tapas were also amazing! Definitely would recommend. If you visit Barcelona, this place is a must. 5/5 for sure!! I want...to commend the staff for being SO friendly and approachable!More

“Paradise” more like hell. Queued for over 2 hours to be massively let down. Not only did they let “wealthy” persons skip the que, when we finally got let in the bar was half empty while the que outside was still stretching around the corner....Door staff went on their break for an hour and didn’t let anyone in, drinks were overpriced and nothing special compared to your average bar. Staff were also not very friendly. Incredibly overrated, not worth your time.More

I think some people will really like the vibe in here but it just felt pretentious to us. I think they are catering to people with more money or who care more about showing off how much money they have, but that wasn't our group....The staff is perfectly nice and everything is clean, drinks are good, and all that. But for an experience, I think this place is for very trendy people and that's just not what we wanted.More

A truly outstanding cocktail bar. Some even say this is the best cocktail bar in Barcelona. Sadly the waiting line was too long, so my boyfriend and I couldn't admire the bar from the inside, but we didn't mind enjoying some cocktails on the terrace....We started with a Paradiso classic. I tried the 'Asia en flores' (Petroni Bianco, elderflower liqueru, matcha green tea, calamansi and rose lemonade) and my boyfriend went for the 'Vermouth Mule' (Petroni Rosso, porto, cassis liqueur, lemon and ginger beer). I loved the flavours of both cocktails, which were lovely presented. But to be honest, I totally fell in love with my second cocktail: the whisky sour, a true classic if there ever was. Shaken to perfection!More

With a frigde for a door, you enter the most exciting cocktail bar in town. Multiple types of cocktails and alcohol, nice finger foods and a very happy stuff ready to serve you! One of the “must go” bars in barcelona. Nice design, exceptional glasses...and presentation for each cocktail. The only disadvantage is that they do not make reservations and you should wait at the line to get in which might take 30-45 minutes. But it worth it.More

Look, I like edgy bars as much as the next guy. However, the queue is unnecessarily long and I had too much time for me to anticipate great things on the other side of the door. In reality, it is a cool bar but the...cocktails were average. Too many herbs and salt that should be in a beverage. people taking photos for Instagram, that seems to be the main draw of the place. We had half the drink and then left. Not for me.More

Wow. Just wow! Every cocktail is made with chemistry and magic. The presentations are creative and the staff is all so knowledgable and fun! Highly recommended! Must order off the specialty cocktail list, no lame easy drink ordering here! There was a line right when...they opened, which is how you know it’s good. So get there early, about 15 mins before opening at least.More

Disastrous Service, Sorry. Still very good drinks and delicious Pastrami-Sandwich, but service was absolutely off. Forgot orders 3 times, unfriendly, did not explain drinks and asked for the decoration while still having our drink (to use for next customer). We loved Paradiso before it made...the list, and will be back as soon as it is off again, as they sure will be shortly with this kind of customer treatment.More

Best cocktails in town. They are not cheap but the atmosphere and the quality of the drinks more than make up for it.

We waited over an hour to get in and once we were in we waiting for a bit to finally place our order. Drinks took a while and when they finally came 2 out of 4 were incorrect. the waiter took off before we could...tell him. after 20 minutes of waiting I finally got up and went and waiting by the door the servers were going in and out to find our server to tell him our drinks were wrong and we wanted them taken off our bill and our check for the 2 that were correct. Waiter was snarky and not apologetic.More

We caught this bar just on the off chance as we were walking by, we had to wait for roughly 30 minutes which is unlike us, yet I’m so glad we did. We had the pleasure of spending time with Gianluca who’s incredibly knowledgeable about...every cocktail but more so really friendly. It’s a super quirky bar and really nice atmosphere, the cocktails are high quality and very cool presentation too. One of the best bars I’ve ever been to!More

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.
