We loved this place so much we came back again! The bar/restaurant is run by a lovely young couple who took the time to sit down and chat with us. They have a great back story! The food is to die for, amazing hot dogs (these are no normal hot dogs)! Plus great nachos. Drinks are cheap and good, and they have a few fun specials on the menu. This is the bar for every traveller who wants to walk into a place that feels like home no matter where you are from!

Found this little gem here on TA. So cool. Watched a World Cup game, tried some hot dogs, had fun.
The hot dogs are definitely unique. Tried two, glad we shared. Be prepared for a taste treat but you may take a couple of tries to get one you really like.
The owners are very cool. Young and fun. Nice and patient with us as we asked lots of questions.
The place is tiny so it was crowded but that's part of the fun.

Awesome small bar. The staff are great! Very friendly and they make amazing cocktails and food! Went there for a drink ended up having dinner, the best hotdog ever and fantastic nachos plus shots of flavoured rum which they make themselves at the bar. Loved this place so much we came back the next night and bought some friends too!

The bartender is an artist with his mojito and is liberal with the rum. Best mojito I've had in Barcelona but not the cheapest at 5 euros each. Very cool bar and awesome place to hangout.
