    Eating / Drinking: Don´t order a beer at the Ramblas.

    If you want to drink a beer, do not order one at the Ramblas. Just go to the Placa Reial, at 10 meters from the Ramblas. First, the atmosphere here is much better. Second, a beer wíll not cost you € 5,- but ´only´ € 3,-.

    Eating / Drinking: El Bosc de les Fades

    This is a great little bar right off of La Rambla. Fantastic atmosphere. The whole place is done up inside like a forest, complete with trees and little streams and fountains. Drinks are strong, too. A gem.

    Dress Code: Casual attire.

    MArgharita Blue: Stylish local bar

    by Bendokan Written Nov 24, 2003

    The bar is a design cocktail bar with nice food on the menu. Mostly visited by locals and with some deep dubs which are mixed together by a DJ who sits by the entrance. The sounds of clubs are all over the place and the waiting staff are selected on their looks which was obvious... guys are buffed and girls are blond and pretty.

    Dress Code: Most people were dressed up in there but the rare exceptions who were dressed in sports shoes were also allowed in... I wor a baseball cap and had no problems getting in.

    Arrrrr!: Hook bar

    Hook Bar

    This is perhaps my favorite bar of all that I've been to, not just Barcelona either. That's saying alot, too. The tables in the front have old steamer trunks covered with cushions to sit on, decks of cards, odd assortment of tables, chairs, etc. Pirate/nautical theme to the extensively covered walls. And a very attractive and kind bartender (owner?) wearing a puffy pirate shirt with plumed hat. The music was 1920's and 30's jazz, which somehow seemed perfect in the crazy setting.

    This is not a fancy dress up bar. This is a down and dirty neighborhood hangout, which I highly recommend for a nightcap, or to get you started before you hit the Ramblas.

    Dress Code: casual

    Cafe Berlin: Drink with the hip kids

    by yelyah99 Written Jul 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A cute cafe/bar with coveted outdoor seating. A menu which changes each day (depending on what the chef feels like cooking apparently), delicious food, blase waiters, a beautiful crowd and the usual huge servings of alcohol make this a great place for a drink any time of the day. Gets packed at around 11pm onwards.

    Dress Code: Smart-casual. You know what I'm saying :)

    Travel Bar: To meet other travellers

    Travel Bar

    If you want to meet other travellers, try this bar. Nice atmosphere, very international and in case you run out of money, it's good to know that free food is served every evening between 7 and 9 (no drink purchase necessary but don't expect too much quality of course). Guided tours and other activities are also organised there.

    Kahala: A night in the South Sea Islands

    by edinburgher Written Jun 7, 2003

    This is one of a few Tiki bars which are left in Barcelona. It seems to have turned into a bit of a teenage pick-up joint for some reason but it's worth a visit for the decor and the drinks which come in wonderful ceramic drinking vessels - several of which involve special effects such as dry ice or flames...! The music was a bit of a let down - nothing remotely exotic but I had a good night there.

    Dress Code: Casual - hawaiian shirts would probably add to the atmosphere.

    Bar in Barcelona

    Bars serve tea, coffee, soda and fruit juice as well as every conceivable form of alcohol. You'll find many familiar drinks, and a range of Spanish beers and wines.

    Beer comes in bottles or on tap, and you can buy wine by the glass. Local red, white and rosé wines come from the Penedès area; Torres and Masia Bach are reliable labels. Cava makes a great aperitif; a light sparkling dry wine, it's made the same way as champagne.

    q sé no ho sé bar: drinking the night away

    drinking the night away

    i discovered this little tiny wine bar one day late in the afternoon - I did not have time to go back at night but it looked like a place where locals would meet to drink the night away. Even in the afternoon it was a wonderful place to be.

    Dress Code: as informal as you can. It's totally no frills.

    (photo:main gate of the La Sagrada Familia) I've spoken about these scluptures above!Unfortunately it is not so visible what I mean.So go and see the church!
    Oh, nightlife!Great, as everywhere in Spain! Do not forget drinking tequila! Here's a coctail tip: 1/4 l orange, 1/4 l tequila and some ice. Drink 2-3 from this and you'll have a perfect night anywhere you are!

    In Barcelona, there's a 'Hard Rock Cafe' (Plaça Catalunya). There used to be a 'Hollywood Planet' (in Vila Olímpica) and a 'Fashion Cafe' (Aragó/Passeig de Gràcia), but they were not very successful. Both restaurants are not present in Barcelona anymore. If you come to Barcelona you should taste the famous 'Pà amb Tomàquet' (Bread with tomato) sandwiches. If you don't have a lot of money you will find these typical Catalan Sandwiches at the most popular Fast Food chain in town: 'Pans and Company'.

    by Davelyn Written Aug 24, 2002

    Night life does not start as we are accustomed to. Here in Spain, Dinner starts after 21:00pm and carries on until the wee hours of the morning.

    Dress Code: Dresscode in Barcelona & most of Europe is shirt & tie with a possible dinner jacket and long pants for the men, and two piece suit or full dress for the ladies. Again, never wear shorts when going for Dinner & visiting Museums or Churches. It is not allowed, and you could be asked to leave.

    This was taken at home, just before we hit the road heading to the disco, namely La Paloma which is located downtown.

    Dress Code: Very casual, jeans, t-shirt and your dancing shoes.
