Looks gorgeous bartenders in tuxedos, pleasant subdued light and trim mahogany. You seem to dive into another era, in which the ladies smoke through the mouthpiece, and the men wore hats.

Barcelona bar was opened by a young Catalan, inspired by the Cuban culture, they say that with the students, he almost did not take the money, and alcoholics poured less than others. Here he loved to drop in Ernest Hemingway and George Orwell. Unfortunately, now the students here do not expect favors, but all are avid drinkers will be pleased.
