Night Adventure

Although El Raval area has a reputation for being a seedy red-light district frequented by pickpockets, for those who are daring, it also has redeeming qualities that make it worthy of your night-out drinking. Betty Ford is a great example of the welcoming-to-all ambiance of El Raval. Its chill vibe is complete with a friendly bar staff and their own beer, Krut. Other bars with the ‘Cheers effect’ include the Modernista bars, London Bar and Marsella, where rumor has it that Hemingway frequented. For a stylish bar, with strong cocktails and good eats, head to Marmalade. Like Marmalade, Rita Blue has funky decor and a multi-cultural crowd that will get you in the drinking mode.
