This bar is a good option for having a drink in El Born, a very cool neighborhood in Barcelona. Very nice decor, good music and friendly staff.

Tripadvisor / Iens promised a 40% discount on this link, but the restaurant said that this wasn't the case. After this, we thought, well, we are hungry, it doesn't matter. We've ordered a bottle of wine and some dishes. None of them we're great, the aioli tasted like yoghurt, the calamari was dry, etc. The wine was good though...

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and good selection of wine and beers. We actually reserved the upstairs space for a few hours with a group of friends before heading off to supper. Perfect space, cosy and private. We had the house Cava which was delicious and ridiculously cheap! Highly recommendable 👍🏻

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
