Very friendly, must visit place in Barcelona. Classic cocktails and good reasonable price Cava. Near Rambla but not a tourist trap.

A Barcelona classic since the 1930s, Boadas is small and intimate but still lively. It's always a mix of locals and visitors and the atmosphere is always friendly. The cocktails are exceptional and made with professionalism and love.

Wow! We were recommended to try out this place by friends in the know – and what a GREAT place – like a timewarp to the 1940s. A proper, old-school, cocktail bar, very dark and very intimate, where everyone looks a bit gangster-y and devious....More

Amazing little bar with a great atmosphere. There is a menu but we just let the guys make the cocktails, we told them we like gin and they did the rest. The best cocktails we've had! Price: standard prices for cocktails when compared to london....More

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

You won't get a cocktail class of the sort you're thinking of in Boadas. It's a proper old school bar and has changed very little over the years. No drinks menus, no food, just incredibly knowledgeable bar staff, (even if... More
