Absolutely terrible place. They don't know how to make even basic cocktails. They use roses lime to make a gimlet! When we asked for fresh lime, the bartender was seriously rude. Avoid this place!

So, #MWC17, aka Mobile World Congress 2017. We came here as a group of six, after three of us had scouted the old town and identified this bar as definitely worth checking out. TripAdvisor reviews were also glowing, so why not? The place is small, and has very nice and cosy vintage look and feel. The bartenders wear smokings, which... More

I have been to this bar a few times now. It's always lively and fun. They also do a mean Dirty Martini. The staff are friendly and old school, great cocktail makers and quick. Go.

We initially had issues splitting our bill 4 ways, but after we decided to go somewhere else, they were able to accommodate us. Food was good, but would just caution that compared to Canadian standards, they cook their meat a little more. So for example if you’re looking for Medium Rare, ask for Rare.

Great little cocktail bar at top of las ramblas. No menu but they make up any you ask. Cost 10euro each - seriously potent. Unlimited nuts included. Lots of locals there and great ambience.

Stuck at a loose end we searched online for somewhere to get a decent drink and this came up. From the minute we entered it was an experience. The two servers were friendly and knowledgeable and served me the perfect gin and tonic, they came up with several gorgeous cocktails for my fella and even warned me (nicely) to keep... More

Look for an unassuming wooden door off La ramblas, blink and you'd miss it! Lovely small bar, all wooden panels, its been there since the 1930's, and has a lovely atmosphere. They don't have a menu, which is brilliant, the bartenders are in a tux and bowtie (brilliant) and you say what kind of drink you like, for example we... More

I've never been one to drink cocktails, unless offered one at a party or an event, but as a friend recommended I tried this bar, I thought I would give it a try and pop in for one. The bar itself feels almost as though it's from another time, with little to show of the modern world apart from maybe... More

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
