Nos Vemos

★★★ : €€€
C/Roger de Flor, 334
Metro Joanic L4
Loosely translated, the name of this bar is "see you later", which can lead to some convoluted text messages to Spanish chums along the lines of "see you later at 'see you later'". Decidedly off the beaten track, this is actually our local bar and it deserves a mention for that reason alone, even if it is far from being the swankiest joint in town. With three pool tables, a pinball machine, a foosball table, and a bunch of footy-showing tellies, this covers all the sports bases. The dingy neon d├ęcor is vaguely reminiscent of the kind of grungy American redneck pool bar seen regularly in cheesy films from the 80s. At first glance, Nos Vemos seems tacky and cheap, and indeed it is, but that's part of its charm. It's not the best bar in Barcelona (heck, it may not even be the best bar on the block), but as a "local bar for local people" it does exactly what it says on the tin.

This bar has been significantly re-vamped recently so we will write a new review once we have a chance to revisit it!
