The Placa Espanya area isn't perhaps as well know as the Born or Gracia areas for places to go, but there are in fact quite a few bars around here that cater to the thirsty and hungry traveller. One of these is La Trajinera, which is a full on Mexican bar and restaurant. Here you'll find a full range of beers, including San Miguel and Coronita (or Corona as the anglo's know it) There's a fake moat and drawbridge entrance that opens into a small bar area that features large wooden barrels and high stools for furniture. The decor is pleasant - plenty of wood and adornments to catch your attention, but subdued enough not to annoy. Further on through and the place opens out into a surprisingly large dining area. Obviously this is a good place for margaritas and food, but you're not obliged to eat and there's enough space in the bar zone to chill out over a few beers or tequilas. Interestingly, the place is entirely smoke free - a plus or negative depending on your personal preferences. Whilst we were there a mariachi band appeared and began to regale the diners. At this point we made our excuses and left, but although perhaps slightly kitsch, it's all harmless fun and adds to the holiday atmosphere. All in all a nice place to visit if you're in the area and in need of a drink.

Good for tourists and large groups celebrating birthdays and the like! Not really a place to 'pop into' for a beer though!
