An old bar revitalised with a young spirit, the Olímpic Bar offers an intoxicating environment fit for every type of reveller. Filled with a dizzying amount with retro tiles, chrome accents and kitschy touches, the Olímpic is reminiscent of a dusty old Raval hole-in-the-wall – and we suppose that's not too far from the truth. But the bar's owners have managed to add a patina of recycled modernity and an infusion of youthful vibes that certainly appeal to the hipster masses.
Settle into one of the cushy armchairs by the entrance and enjoy an unobstructed view of C/ Joaquín Costa for some great people-watching. If you want to feel one with the spirit of the Raval, this bar's lack of a door will let you mingle with all the neighbourhood's shenanigans.
If you peek inside, you'll see the blue walls complemented by a long metal bar. Sidle up and pass the whole day trying snacks, tapas and salads at cheap prices (we recommend the house-famous patatas bravas) while rotating between mojitos and cheap bottles of Moritz beer.
Joaquín Costa, 25
