The idea of taking an old Victorian style warehouse (not whorehouse!) and turning it into a bar can't be beaten. The results are simply wonderful due to the flexibility of space and the fun that can be had with the ambience. In this case we have a HUGE bar (something that BCN regularly has problems with!) filled with sofas and projectors semi-illuminating the lovely old original brickwork of the building. Tucked away into a salubrious street in the lesser explored Poble Sec area, you'll find this bar simply magical when you walk in - feeling like you've found somewhere really unique and exclusive and this is partly due to the membership system that they run. Don't worry though as although it's possible to enter without signing up, I thoroughly recommend that you do so as for only 8 euros (per year) you'll receive discounts on all drinks. After spending one night here you'll have recuperated your fee if you stay for a couple of bevvies. Talking of which the bar has the usual array of beer, wines, spirits and cocktails although I wasn't able to confirm how 'artisan' the cocktails are. Music wise, the bar veers towards soul, funk and Motown (think old-school) and adds another unique element to this wonderful yet slightly tucked away establishment in Poble Sec!
