A few friends and I went to this bar to watch a football game and grab a bite to eat. The premises sounded perfect, beers, burgers and football. They failed on all fronts. The food was quite literally the most bland, undercooked excuse for sustenance...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
