It didn’t take me long to bump into the small, yet very dynamic English language theatre scene in Barcelona. A surprising amount of Anglophone actors and performers live and work in the city and Tinta Roja is a regular venue for their plays and improv comedy events. What makes it great is that it also hosts spectacles in French and Italian as well as obviously Catalan and Spanish. This heady mix draws  the kind of groovy international crowd we have grown to expect in Barcelona.

Just walking in, you feel you have entered a theatre space; the decor and evident sound-proofing take you to a state of suspended disbelief. The bar area at the front is very welcoming and I find the staff are always friendly – even if you just come for a drink it’s a great place to hang out with friends or simply warm up before heading out to party in Poble Sec.

If you are coming for a show, then I suggest you take a moment before the lights dim and absorb the very evocative theatre space at the back, it has a plush circus-stroke-steampunk vibe I like very much. Let the show begin.
