I shoulnd't be telling you this, but this place is a hidden Gem in "el Born". Very well done Mojitos for just 4 euros, and a large variety of cocktails. You can also add some very traditional catalan food for just 10 euros.

Go at your own risk, or better don't. I give it one point because TA will not let me post my warning unless I rate it. I would give it NEGATIVE 100 points. About 3 weeks ago I went to the Rubi bar (Banys Vells,...More

Ok, I doubt that most of this happened. About the wrong change - it's possible, people make mistakes sometimes, but there are no other mentions of this in 578 reviews, so....sorry if it did happen. Second, the music was really loud? No, the music is...More

Found this bar by chance while wondering the beautiful laneways of Barca. Truely great find. Bar staff had some killer recommendations and I had the pleasure to have a convo with the owner who was an total legend. Check it out!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
