Tucked right into the centre of Raval, this bar really offers so much more than the average. I often come here during the week because I find it’s one of the best places to chill out in the city.
The bar consists of two main sections, the entrance area, which holds the bar itself, and a long back section which boasts couches, grand windows looking out to busy Joaquin Costa, and a regularly updated selection of art. Like with any art, some of it has really appealed to me and some hasn’t, but the gallery selection is changed regularly enough that it’s worth taking a look each time you visit. The space has also held some special events before, including concerts and workshops, so keep an eye out for things like that on their Facebook page.
The thing that I love most about this bar is the music. I have heard so many amazing tracks played here, ever-so-subtly, but just loud enough to set the perfect tone for me – usually in the vein of beautifully chilled electronic stuff akin to Bonobo and Boards of Canada, but not limited to only that. One other big plus is their drinks – an interesting selection and good delivery makes for a nice range to choose from. However, a word of warning – it’s not the cheapest bar in the neighbourhood. I say it’s worth it, but if you’re looking for a cheap night it might not be your first port of call.
