The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

    Really Good
    This bar was recommended by a local and didn’t disappoint. Cool decor, dark moody (but not creepy ) vibes and some cool background music makes you feel like you have been transported to a rustic Southern bar in USA but also a long time ago.Think Billy the Kid , El Paso, Texas and a bit of Jazz. They somehow manage to pull it off without coming across as pretentious. The staff are incredibly friendly, enthusiastic and welcoming and really took the time to make you feel welcome and left you with a smile on your face. Drinks were spectacular also. Looking forward to going again!

    Great vibes!
    Found this bar whilst wandering around during the day, its tucked away so can be quite hard to find. Decided to have a drink before going out for dinner. Really nice welcome by one of the staff, explained all the drinks and cocktails they did, recommended some too. Best cocktail we had whilst in Barcelona, just a shame that it was our last day when we found it. Some really good music playing, could easily find yourself drinking the night away trying all the different drinks. Reasonably proced too! Will definitely return if ever in Barcelona again. Gracias! P.s. try the ugly duckling!

    Fantastic!
    Just fantastic! We found this bar and we were so glad we did. Outstanding cocktails, their own brewed beer (7.4%) and selection of gins. We were lucky to be seated at the bar and got to witness all of the cocktails being made, they really were impressive. The Ugly Duckling (rum based) was my favourite and Baby Groot (my husbands favourite). We’re not big gin drinkers but felt we needed to sample their gins so we had a Naughty Gnomo and “something” aviate, can’t remember the name but they were incredible. We got chatting with the owner, Angël, who was such a nice guy! Really down to earth. We had the best night of our trip to Barcelona in this bar. Highly recommend and will be visiting again!

Second trip to Barcelona and had to visit my favorite spot - Dux. Their gin drinks are memorable and the staff is great, you can tell they take pride in what they create. The Citrus Gaudi cocktail is my favorite for a refreshing drink on a hot day.

Central Gothic area but tucked away and not an easiest place to find yet persevere because it will be worth it. Nice vibe and crowd, while the bartenders work hard to impress you with their signature “Gin Infused” mixology juggling ... they deliver some great mixing entertainment and unique cocktail creations that I doubt you will find elsewhere in Barcelona. Including some healthy organic ingredients in your cocktails so you don’t feel so guilty in the morning. Standard price per drink is 10 Euros and it closes at 3AM. Swing band in on Saturday nights, but every night here is a fun date night for couples.

We sat at the bar and went with Angel’s (the owner) recommendations. He did not disappoint. He was super friendly, entertaining, (handsome) and was a master at his craft. Definitely more than just another bar, highly recommend if you want a more refined, classy night cap. The vibe was excellent - intimate and warm and welcoming.

Inspired by a beautiful photo on @BarcelonaFoodGuide IG of a cocktail that looked like a biochemistry experiment, we ambled around the beautiful stone alleys of El Born for what felt like an hour before finding this cozy bohemian pub with brick walls, velvet curtains, and swing covers of pop music. The menu starts with an entire page of housemade infused gins with creative flavors (ex. Ginger and hibiscus), then traverses across the universe of alcohol and cocktails. All of the drinks we tried were enjoyable; the best were the bartender’s whims. Drinks were slightly sweeter than our standards back home in California, but the flavors were beautifully creative, diverse and enjoyable.

I’m a huge gin fan and my husband found this place on google. It was a Saturday night and there was a couple of guys playing swing on a piano and guitar. It was such a change from the regular bars. The cocktails we tried were really good and out of the ordinary. Could have stayed all night but it probably would have bankrupt us haha would definitely recommend!

We went on a night when live music was being played and the ambience was delightful. The staff were very friendly and there was an extensive gin menu. Perhaps overpriced - the price of their "special" gin for the evening - plankton gin - was €15 which we thought was rather expensive.
