I was on vacation in Barcelona and staying at an apartment just steps away when I happened to notice the name of this place. My very favorite drink is an old fashioned so I had to know if they made a proper one. I had a good feeling when I walked in and noticed the place has a Prohibition era feel to it and they had a healthy bourbon selection, including my bourbon of choice. The owner, Bruno, could not have been nicer and he knows exactly how to make a hand-crafted cocktail! I was so happy as I did not expect to find a bar like this. I was not the only one to feel this way because I went back the following night and ran into several of the people I met the night before!

In addition, I told Bruno where I was going to have dinner and he suggested another place, Coure. He even made me a reservation and called me a taxi! Coure was really delicious (best steak tartare I've had) so he did not lead me astray!

Was very close to our apartment so visited as based on TripAdvisor reviews. Was practically empty 9.30 on a Sunday night but got busier around 11. Delicious cocktails and free house shot for my birthday, served in style by the barman, who later gave us recommendations for places to dance. Only problem is this part if Barcelona is super quiet on a Sunday night.

This bar is cosy, it has lovely and friendly bar tenders who make the most exciting and different cocktails I have tried in Barcelona. In one of the nicest areas of Barcelona to go and have an evening drink it's definitely a place you must go! You will not regret it!

We visited this bar in early September whilst on a short break to Barcelona. My husband and I were staying a few doors up from this bar and discovered it by accident and what a find it was!
We had several drinks here over a couple of nights and had the signature cocktails which were amazing. When my husband asked for a single malt he was invited round the back of the bar to view the extensive collection and take his pick! This made his evening!
The atmosphere is relaxed and you could quite easily stay here all evening drinking your way through the menu as all the drinks are amazing!

If you like cocktails, don't miss it! They have the best cocktails in town with the two most charismatic bartenders ( Bruno and Luca). You can see how they love their job in every drink they create for you.
