Beautiful place to have a drink, the way the barman prepared the gin and tonic was magical with a burning stick of Rosemary

When I saw this bar on TV I thought I just have to visit. The next time I was in Barcelona I went and was not in the least bit disappointed. You are literally drinking where Antoni Gaudi, Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Salvador Dali have sat drinking absinthe and the amazing thing is that very little has changed. Original dusty... More
Very cool place. Don't expect service on tables, but the bartenders are nice and speak English well. Drinks aren't that expensive. The Absinth drink is the thing here (use a lighter to light the sugar cube before you drink). Avoid if you don't loud noise and looking for an elegant location.

A hard to find Gem in the back streets just off La Ramblas. Very friendly staff explain the history of the drink and how to enjoy it! Beware the Green Fairy, she creeps up on you!!!
This bar comes highly recommended in all the guides as a place to follow in the footsteps of every artist, writer, architect etc who had Bohemian leanings and liked a drop of absinthe after a hard day's work. The bar is wonderfully atmospheric as if preserved in time. The absinthe has to be tried although it's not the best I've... More
I visited with a couple of friends to see how the oldest bar in barcelona looks like and It was better than I was expecting it. Great environment and people ordering only absint. I recommend to visit for the experience
Fell in love with the atmosphere of this bar, one of the oldest in Barcelona. It looks like you could see Dali having a drink at the bar! The absinth
