Tucked away in a corner behind Plaça de Sant Jaume you'll find a seemingly everday bar called El Paraigua (The Umbrella). But venture downstairs and you'll see it's anything but everyday, with plush sofas, ample space to stand and have a little dance, and a small stage for live music. Mind your step, though, if you dare to order one of their dangerous cocktails, such as a gimlet with tequila or a whisky sour with absinthe.
