Time Out says
Balius is a place for an after-work beer, a Saturday night cocktail, or a Sunday vermouth. If you're out for cocktails, may we recommend the Nina: sweet and sour, it's made with cachaça and clementine juice with a touch of thyme in the creamy crown. Balius is also a spot for good live music where you can feel free to eat some tapas and chat (quietly) during the show. On the menu they've got Andalusian and Castilian tapas that are lesser-known to the Barcelona crowd, such as 'lomo de orza' (finely cut pork loin marinated with spices) and 'atascaburras' (a salted cod dish with chopped potatoes, garlic and oil). Balius is part of the Slow Food and 'km 0' movements, so your organic and locally sourced foods are guaranteed.
