Overview

El Paraigua is not only a jewel in the midst of the modernism route of Barcelona, nor is it only a regular cocktail lounge. Neither is it only an ideal location for concerts with the most perfect acoustic sounds reflected off the stone arches of the wine cellars, that was once the home to one of the oldest convents in the Barrio Gotico, nor is it only an intimate place with a display of local art exhibitions, an ideal location to hold conferences and events located in the heart of Barcelona. El Paraigua is all of this and much more. An exceptional property, directly behind plaza St.Jaume, open to all those who enjoy a good cocktail, try an extensive choice of tapas and a wide variety of national wines, allowing yourself to become lost within the music in a bar full of charm, character and endless history. El Paraigua no es solo una pequena joya integrada dentro de la ruta del modernismo ni tampoco una de las coctelerias miticas de la ciudad de Barcelona. No es solo una sala de conciertos con acustica perfecta ubicada en las bodegas de un antiguo convento del barrio gotico, ni tampoco un espacio intimo para acoger exposiciones temporales de arte, conferencias y tertulias. Ni tan siquiera es solo el sitio ideal, ubicado en el corazon de la ciudad, para poder celebrar fiestas privadas o eventos de empresa...El Paraigua es todo esto y mucho mas. Un espacio polivalente, justo detras de la plaza St.Jaume, abierto a todos aquellos que les guste disfrutar de los cocteles, degustar buenas tapas y excelentes vinos y dejarse llevar por la buena musica con la mejor compania en un local lleno de encanto y repleto de historia.

Go for the architecture rather than the welcome/ service or food. The inside is traditional/ quaint and there are regular music events for free downstairs.

El Paraigua is a nice bar with a cozy interior, a bit on the dark side. They are serving good mojitos and tapas. Their drinks are in the range of 8-10 euro.

Visited El Paraigua for an afternoon coffee. The place was central and quiet, the coffee was nice but the server was rude and cold, whereas she seemed very friendly with Spanish and Catalan speakers. Not sure if we would go back.

On a rainy winter Sunday night getting close to a Spanish guitar duo was sublime! The entertainment is free, we had tapas and sangria and were in the mood. Very convenient in the gothic quarter, in the basement vault. A memory forever!
