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.

Whenever we are in Barcelona, a visit to Dr. Stravinski is mandatory. Exciting bar with great concoctions, unique combinations of herbs, and liqours. The place is small and cozy, one can easily spend an entire evening gazing at the many flasks, chemistry, and performance by...More

This bar is so unusual! It looks like a vintage laboratory, which it is in a kind of way, as it looks as though they are fermenting things in bottles. The lighting is subdued and enhances the vintage decor. They were making cocktails that I've...More

Small bar, and a hidden gem. Fantastic cocktails and very good service and pricing. Only drawback is that it's too quite. If you are after for music skip, but everything else rocks.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
