For the Spanish, this bar is like going to Stockholm and finding a tapas bar dedicated to Hernán Cortés. Bar Obama sells itself as a pub dedicated to British Africa. The ambience evokes private clubs where the British went to drink after a nice colonial safari. Leather sofas, taxidermied animals everywhere, and wooden furniture make up a pub that supplements its lack of personality – blame colonialism, blame the corner of Gran Via-Rambla de Catalunya – with a perfectly developed concept. Peter O'Toole would be a fan.
