I enjoyed a couple of drinks here right in the centre of the city on las ramblas, there is a terrace area outside also, enjoyed some Estrella beer, nice staff.

A quite expensive and noisy but it's worthy to be in the city center and to reach all important places in the city from there.

Perfect to meet people that come by train to Barcelona. Really easy and practical. Choose terrace or inside.
