Such a cool spot in the heart of the Gothic quarter. The inside looks like it's straight out of a bartenders laboratory -and the drinks they create are the result. For some superb drinks try the whiskey sour or the camp nou (gin)

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
