London Bar

Tel. 93 318 5261 : Hours 7.30pm - 5am
As a grand old bar in the center of the Raval barrio, the London Bar has an enjoyable bohemian atmosphere. There's live music most nights and no cover charge, which makes this place popular with the locals, tourists and ex-pats alike. The interior is long and the d├ęcor has been kept to the original, traditional style, which lends an historical glamour to the place. The main bar is at the front, covered in brass and mirrors, with the rest of the place stretching through to the back and a small stage for the live music. Unlike most Barca bars, the London Bar has a surprisingly efficient table service, which is perfect when you just want to drink, chat and listen to the music. One of the few bars still open until 5am, with reasonalble prices for such a central location, the London Bar is a great place to start or end your evening.

Unfortunately, all the best aspects of this bar have gone with the insistence of the gov't and residents unhappy with the noise. It no longer has live music and closes at the same boring time as all other bars. This used to be a great spot for some of us getting done work at 2:30 and hitting some live music and drinks without a cover. Thanks to the residents, that doesn't happen anymore.
