We were staying at the nearby Mercer Hotel (great hotel by the way!) and had read the reviews on Tripadvisor about Zim. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. We went almost every evening before dinner for a glass of wine or cava, and sometimes a snack. It's a very small, very intimate place with beautiful stone walls and low key atmosphere. The owner was lovely. I think he opens up around 6:30PM. If you're in the area don't miss it!

We stayed nearby Zim and one day wandered in for a glass of cava after a long day of touring around. The owner was friendly and after pouring us a nice glass of wine, made delicious little sandwiches as a snack. it's tiny so you can't really go with too many people (maybe it fits 20) but it's a terrific find for a drink and snack.

Friendly bartender, locals drinking there were super-friendly to us, and the little snack served with the drink was much appreciated. We did not stay long, but it was filling up -again, with locals. We like that......

Cold December afternoon and it started drizzling outside… we looked for a place where we could give our feet some rest and relax with a glass of wine. We were so fortunate to run into this tiny place! Really, the place is so small that it could easily be missed. We recommend that you don’t miss it.
The wines we tested were really good (unlike other bars we tried in the area). The host was so friendly and the atmosphere cozy and enjoyable (even when the place got packed up). An excellent break from a long tourism day

I agree with the other TA reviewers who loved Zim. This is a very small, cozy, friendly wine bar. There is room for only 10 or 12 people in this place but I was able to find a seat both times I went during the five days I was in Barcelona. Good wine, reasonable prices. Zim is now one of my favorite wine bars in the world!
