We popped in here on our way to and from town. Excellent cocktails, great atmosphere. A really good bar. Popular with locals and tourists. Yes it needs a lick of paint but in all honesty this just adds to the charm.

Just of the main Ramplas, this is nice, atmospheric old bar, well patronised by locals. Interesting surroundings, good beer selection.

Only in Barcelona for one night so was looking for somewhere for a quick drink near our hotel (especially considering the poor meal we'd just had at a 'recommended' restaurant)
There was really pleasant live music being played by a young man playing a guitar. Drinks were reasonably priced

Found London Bar through it's connections with Hemingway and Picasso.

Loved it. Authentic 1920s decor with old marble table tops and marble on the walls.

Quiet in the week, though not empty. Live music too - a young man with a guitar sang during our first visit. Busier on the weekends.

Drinks are cheap - a caña and a glass of wine for 3 euros and 50 cents.

Despite the name, this isn't an english bar - some english, but brush up on your spanish/catalan to make things easier.

Cheap drinks, relaxed atmosphere and a little literary history chucked in.

Recommended.
