This place is special. The tapas are simple, delicious and fresh; the polenta is particularly good. They often have live music and there is always something artistic and interesting happening. A great place to meet up with friends for a cocktail.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
