Yet another fairly chilled bar in the centre of Gracia. Though this of course depends on the day. This is a newish place (after refurbishment) that offers the usual range of local beers and of course, like many bars in this area a token, yet not particularly functional pool table. Its merits however are its ambience, cool music and a couple of TVs for Barça fans. Other than this, it's all pretty high standard and a good place to grab a table to chat with friends or perch on the bar and relax to some laid back tunes. The staff are friendly and you're unlikely to get into much trouble in this slice of cool, but not overly trendy establishment.

Update 2017 - El Otro feels like a genuine local's bar and the prefect starting place for the more adventurous tourist that wants to see more of Barna life outside of the center of town. A bit rough around the edges (the pool table is in a shocking state), but in a good way where it makes you feel comfortable. Check out their funky table tops! Free popcorn or olives are occasionally brought out if the staff aren't overrun by clientèle. It's a solid choice to kick off a bar crawl or adventures in the Gracia barrio. Oh, and possibly the coolest Facebook page banner picture.

Note that the last time I was there (Feb '09), the pool table had been removed.
