This "hole in the wall" bar is tucked away down a side street off C/Banys Vells and is a short walk from Rubi. The bare brick walls, subdued lighting, erotic art and small size of this bar enhance its intimate, bohemian atmosphere. The place is long and thin, with a small bar at the far end and basic low tables and soft furnishings in the minimalist, Ikea style. The ambiance is tickled by gentle, unobtrusive music that makes this a bar for nuanced conversation, rather than bawdy celebrating. Not really a good choice for large groups, but it is ideal for couples or small groups who want to escape the tourist crowd without leaving the center of town. Given the bar's general location in El Born, prices are very good value and the happy hour matches those found in St Germain, La Fourmi, Le Journal and other bars in the Gracia area. This is definitely a bar to drop into for a couple of your favourite drinks in order to break up your evening's itinerary and escape the hubbub of the Born area.

Definitely not a bad bar, I especially like the hippy-ish leanings but I agree that it's only really a place to go when you need to escape the hustle and bustle of the tourist bars in the area!
