Barcelona as so many bars where you can taste the famous vermouth, eat tapas and have fun with your friends. But some 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 must warn you directly, the bar 33/45 is a victim of its success. It is often difficult to return on weekends in tourist periods. That’s why we advise you to go there during the week or in the low season. However, you can not miss out on this unique bar! If you are a hipster, hipster fan or both, this is the place for you. But the cool thing 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 local, let go following the sound of music or even celebrate a birthday! While the other section is more like “Lounge” if you wish to discuss with your old friend the good old days by comfortably sitting down in the sofa and sipping your beer Morritz. Let yourself be charmed by the vintage vibe, delicious cocktails and electronic music of this place, besides exhibitions and music concerts that take place from time to time.
