Good little dive bar in the heart of Barcelona. Would definitely go back. Just make sure you don’t make too much noise if you’re leaving at 3am, otherwise the old women in the apartments above with throw buckets of piss on you!

We found it easy and it was a very pleasant and funky bar. The staff was helpful. You can buy homemade liquor and honey. Very nice music. Add it to your plans and have a beer there.. You will really enjoy it!!

A well known bar in Barcelona. Allegedly owned by singer Manu Chao. The music is cool and so are the people who visit. It's great to go with friends and it's right in the Gothic neighborhood, so you can visit other bars afterwards.
