Pura Vida Cocktails is a great place for a high quality drink. Each drink is made with full attention and care and tastes amazing! Definitely pay a visit here, and I promise you'll want to come back for more.

The BEST cocktail bar in Barcelona. It's small but cosy, with a Caribbean theme. You have to come here. The pina and passion fruit mojitos are a must.

After a while, we were able to return and we had a great experience. The Caribbean food was delicious, as good as the one we had in The Caribbean. I really like cocktails, and this time I tried Pura Vida and Gingertini, I strongly recommend...them. Indeed Sandra and Kenny are doing a great job with their establishment and y’all should go there when you’re in Barcelona.More

Lovey cocktail bar & latin tapas place. The menu has several carribean dishes, one of my favourite is the ceviche with mango, but please do not miss the tequeños as starter!!! Great variety of cocktails, ask for recommendations to the owners, they will make it...special for you ;-)More

Finally found a place that has it all - delicious food (arepas, cachapas and táquenos), strong cocktails, upbeat music (house vibes) and super friendly atmosphere. If you are looking for a less touristic and special place - look no further :)More

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
