The Top 5 Bars in El Raval, Barcelona
Barcelona has so many bars where you can taste the famous vermouth, eat tapas and have fun with your friends. But some restaurants can be pretty expensive, especially in touristic places. That’s why we made you the list of the 5 best bars that you can find in El Raval. We love the vibrant charm that Raval has, it is such a unique neighbourhood and has some of the coolest bars in Barcelona.
You can’t miss out on this unique bar! The coolest part is that the bar is divided into two sections, so you can enjoy two different moods, depending on what you are looking for. The first section that is located at the main entrance is made for people looking for adventure, who want to meet locals, let go following the sound of music or even celebrate a birthday! The other side of the bar is more like a “Lounge”. If you wish to catch up with your old friend and discuss the good old days, whilst comfortably sitting down on the sofa and sipping your Moritz. Let yourself be charmed by the vintage vibe, delicious cocktails and electronic music. You can also find live here MUSIC CONCERTS that take place from time to time.
