Rita Blue is a modernist themed bar in a small open plaça just off the Ramblas. As such it's a perfect spot to chill out from the tourist rush during the day, and a good bar & restaurant experience in the evening. The interior has a retro feel that includes 50's-style lamps and lanterns hanging from the ceilings. The front of the establishment has a curved bar with plenty of funky shaped stools along it and the glass front that overlooks the plaça with adjoining church. In addition, there's a small comfy sofas area in one corner, and behind the bar is the rather compact restaurant seating area. There's a dark basement dance floor complete with disco balls that gets crowded later on for live acts during the week and house and techno sets on weekends. There are plenty of tables available on the terrace in the square, however these are very popular and the outside service can suffer when the place gets busy. Food is pretty good Mexican and Mediterranean fare and the great drinks, especially cocktails, will get you grooving. Rita Blue is one of those bars that just has a really good vibe, and this is helped by friendly staff, many of whom speak good English. It attracts a fairly young crowd and so has a studenty, artsy, friendly atmosphere that is very endearing. This place is very popular with locals and tourists alike, and so it pays to get there earlier rather than later if you want to get a seat. All in all, Rita Blue is one of the better modern bars in the center of town, and well worth a visit.
