Time Out says
The former bar for football club Espanyol supporters, with a privileged location on Plaça Reial – is now a café called Philippines Club.
Climb the black spiral staircase that winds up from the square to enter this open space with a majestic and unmistakably colonial air. The café is owned by the Andilana group, and one of its directors, Jordi Puig, is the face of Philippines Club. Puig is honorary consul of the Philippines, and this fantastic space has several uses, including acting as the cultural headquarters of Filipino associations in Barcelona.
You can also rent the space for a meal or a meeting.
