My favourite cocktail bar in Barcelona, been visiting this place for over 15 years and it's changed very little over that time. Superb cocktails very well crafted at around €8-€10 the surroundings are lovely and the atmosphere is fantastic, best to visit after 10pm

You never forget your first and the experience was memorable, expertly made in an environment created to calmly taste and relax. Came back several times and had other firsts like the gimlet and senior rum... miss it!

Stumbled across this place and happy we did. Had a speakeasy feel and a large cocktail list, reminding me of home.
