Worth to wait in line, because place is small, but drinks and atmosphere is great. Very charismatic bar with whimsical cocktails.

Before we booked our trip to Barcelona, I saw Dr. Stravinsky on a website where it mentioned top 100 bars in the world. I saw the pictures and immediately put it in my itinerary!

Dr. Stravinsky is in the el born area of Barcelona - and that was about a 7 minute drive from our hotel, or a 25 minute walk.
My family and I took a cab from Camp Nou after the game, to go have a drink at Dr. Stravinksy and Dux (a bar near by). We get there around 10:45pm and the neighborhood is virtually empty. In order to get to Dr. Stravinsky, you need to walk in these narrow alleys, which my sister and I were fine with but my parents were terrified because there was no one else walking around. After 10 minutes, we left because the navigation wasn't helping, and neither were my parents!

Two days later, on Saturday, we decided we needed to go to these two bars which were one minute away from each other. Cabs were on strike so we had to manage to find our way via train - and let me tell you, if you're by Passeig de Gracia, that train will save your life. The train drops you off right by those alleys and now it's Saturday and it's lively and not creepy at all!

Going into the actual bar was a bit tight because they put the sign directly in front of the door. Once you're in, you're greeted with a beautiful red and green bar. They have two areas where they seat customers - upstairs and on the same floor you enter.

Everyone was classy, and enjoying their time at Dr. Stravinksy, as well as the drinks! We were given a menu and the first page is like a diagram which could help you pick the perfect drink for yourself, based on what you like.

I ordered the Alma (Vodka drink with elderflower, lychee + egg whites), my dad ordered an Old Fashioned, and my sister got the Lion's Lamb (A special tequila drink in a Jamaican pepper cup).

My dad liked the Old Fashioned, but regretted not getting a cooler, handcrafted, unique cocktail. Alma was a great drink and gave you the perfect buzz! My sister's Lion's Lamb was strong and very spicy, but she loved it.

The drinks were ~10euros each, so you're getting great cocktails for a decent price! If you're sitting upstairs, service will get slow so just keep an eye out!

Also, if you're looking for some food after (since they don't offer food here), La Fabrica is a super reasonable and yummy empanada place that's a 2 minute walk from there, and next door to it, they have doner! Drink, eat and enjoy!

Saw this bar on a list of 100 Best Cocktail bars so had to try it out, loved it! Really inventive combinations of flavors, wanted to try them all. The mixing process was like theater as well. Definitely make this a stop when you're in Barcelona!

Great service and cocktails in a cozy environment. Would love to give it an excellent punctuation but we were disappointed about the use of plastic straws. Once you improve to a more sustainable way we would be very happy to change our review.
