The Black Lion can rightfully claim to be the oldest English pub in Barcelona, having first opened its doors in 1959, well before the other English and Irish pubs that subsequently invaded La Rambla. It's got a good long history with the Catalans, as well, having hosted Nova Cançó meetings (a movement of artists that promoted Catalan music under Franco) as well as some of the movement's bigger singers and songwriters. These days they have craft beer on tap, good G&Ts, football on the telly and a lively crowd.
