Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: After more than 30 years of events and with its regular customers, this doubled arched discotheque is a classic and "must" in Barcelona's night party. Located in Barcelona's Downtown, within the charming "Plaza real" square it is a must for Rock, Pop and Indie lovers. Night after night, it offers a different schedule with high quality music and hits from the 60s to the present. Its underground style , its great and large experience, its awesome music and the great atmosphere that characterize this night club, ensure the visitors the best underground nightlife in the city. Open all day, its musical bar with terrace is an ideal place to enjoy a pleasant break and enjoy a superb cocktails.

This place has a prime spot on Placa Reial and we wanted to take the weight off for a bit, have a drink and people watch. We took the only empty table on the terrace that we could see - I accept they were busy - then we waited. And waited. And waited. I did catch the girls eye a couple of times but she never came over - we were just about to call it a day and leave when she materialised. We ordered and the drinks came - only a wine and a beer - but you do have to pay straight away - I know, unheard of in Spain right?! You are in tourist central here and this place did have the late afternoon sun so it was popular but there have to be other places with better service!

Probably the most diluted sangria I've ever had... but the prices weren't terrible. If you must come here maybe order a beer?

After a day tramping the streets exploring this fabulous city this is the perfect place to sit back, relax, have a beer and watch the world go by.
The staff are fantastic.

BAD KARMA!
Great location, satisfactory drinks, BUT a tragedy in customer service and customer relations.
RUDE MANAGER, VERY RUDE "RUSSIAN GODFATHER"/ OWNER.
Waiter spilled 1/2 litre of sugary Sangria over a customer (!) soaking her woollen coat and expensive handbag - an accident.
Then began the tragedy, no staff member brought anything to mop up the mess or help. Not the offending waiter, not the bar tender, not the promotional staff.
The Manager was called, he really showed himself up, rude, ignorant and unhelpful! The Owner appeared and compounded the tragedy, refusing to make good the damage - even failing to offer €16 for dry cleaning without a receipt.
Risk it yourself, but wear your oldest clothes and a reliable waterproof!
