Classic Bar in BCN

Legend has it that Marsella is the oldest bar in Barcelona. At nearly 200 years old, that certainly is no exaggeration. The bar is all about its old-fashioned louche ambiance: a cigarette stained ceiling, feeble light from ornate chandeliers, and a regular crowd of solitary old-timers. The house drink? Absinthe. Though most don't drink it for the taste, ordering a glass of the infamous green spirit is something of a ritual at Marsella. Indeed, Hemingway frequented the bar in his early days, undoubtedly starting the night of with a glass of the "green fairy" himself.
