So there was definitely a time where going into Boadas took you back to another era and the cocktail maestros made you a fabulous martini and you had a wonderful time. It's been already a few visits here where it just has seemed off. Maybe...More

Great location just a side street off Las Ramblas. The bar man was fab, very friendly and an absolute showman! No cocktail menu - he asked us what we like (vodka/ gin/ fruity/ sour) and made 4 perfect cocktails. Very impressed and would definitely recommend!

Some find the place too basic - the new generation cocktail aficionado has high standards and rarified tastes. However, from my ancient point of view - its a nice little bar - they do a bit too much show sloshing back and forth - and...More

I'm not at all convinced about this place. Having tasted mojito all over the world this one scored a 1 to 2 out of 10. Clearly made from pre-mix. Having tasted mine I watched the barman make others and not once did they use the...More

This place will transport you to another era all together with the low key and dim atmosphere, yet elegant and sophisticated. No surprise this is the oldest bar in Barcelona from the 1930s and it maintains that authentic vibe. There is no menu but the...More

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
