If you like dark punky dives then you must hit this place up in Barcelona! I felt very at home with the decor and music as I tend to seek out the grungy spots wherever I travel.

Not a real dive bar but still pretty good, service was good as was the music. Happy hour was very good value and staff nice.

If you like really quiet music and no atmosphere then you’ll LOVE Bollocks. You too can sit in a sterile atmosphere in a bar that would kill to be even a tenth as soulless as even the worst Hard Rock Cafe on the planet.

We went here on a Sunday night & it was busy but not heaving. We hit happy hour and got awesome F*cking mojitos which were €4 each and felt bad that they were so cheap after the effort & care that went into them!
