El Raval

Bar 68 is a strange, delightful hole in the wall. Surrounded by Pakistani markets, shady cybercafés, and prostitutes and toothless junkies who come and go, it's not exactly a place where you'd see Carrie Bradshaw ordering cosmos. If I had to label Bar 68's style, it would Raval pop - a general tendency in the barrio to use second- and third-hand furniture for an ambience that's part indie and part John Waters's living room.

Of course, a big attraction are the affordable and generous cocktails, among them such classics as tequila sunrise, margarita and old-fashioned - loaded with all the fuel you need for a night out in the Raval. Bar 68 is not for amateurs or the faint-hearted. It's one of those joints where you don't know how you ended up there and can't remember how you got out.
