Nice beer bar with a great selection (Mikkeller, Brewdog, Meantime, Rogue...). You can find 8 beers on taps and a good beer bottle selection ~50 beers from very nice breweries. Very clean and nice, the environment of the bar is very peaceful, I recommended it.
Hip, modern en leuk uitziend interieur. Spijtig dat de bediening tegenviel. De medewerker was super energiek, maar op een irritante manier die al snel op mijn zenuwen werkte. Antwoord op vragen maar zonder verdere hulp te bieden. Sommige flessen zijn geprijsd met een neklabel, andere niet. Er is geen prijslijst beschikbaar. Op basis van het interieur zou ik zeggen leuk om te zitten. Spijtig genoeg is de verpakking prachtig maar de inhoud leeg.
well, what to say about this? It has a great score, and I can see why. That does not mean I agree though. The place is as hipster as you can get, but pretty hollow. To the naked eye, all aspects are great. The interior is amazing, and they have some truly awesome bottles not seen elsewhere in BCN. Underneath all that though, I saw a couple of things a truly great bar should try to avoid. bottles were priced by necklabels, yet roughly 60% of them didn’t have a necklabel. Some of them had a random different one than they should. Upon asking a price menu, i was answered by a super-energetic bartender , that used his energy to point out to me that a menu wasn’t possible with THIS beers !! (obviously thats BS as we print a menu daily in the bar I work. It’s a tough job, but possible ) but he didn’t provide any further help, too. The food was mainly focussed on Vegan and Vegetarian. Absolutely great for some, but only very limited choices for someone like me, strengtening the hipster-feel here. Prices were on the high side, even more so for the food. We truly didn’t enjoy this hollow atmosphere. There’s more to craft than having a nice interior and great beers in the fridge. i missed passion, energy used in the right way, quality, and knowledge, for instance. perhaps we went on a bad moment ?
A small and narrow place with a bar out front and seating in the back. For all its metal a cozy place I would be happy to call local. Small but interesting beer list with a wacky and fun bottle list. Tiny samples for a price if you want to micro tick. I’m a fan.
This was my personal favourite bar in Barcelona. It doesn’t have the immense selection of BierCaB nor the decor of NaparBCN, but I would say my experience here was better in the round - particularly because of more friendly and attentive service and a more relaxed environment. And I’m not saying it’s a slouch when it comes to beer selection - there was plenty to keep me interested (although perhaps there was a lack of local Spanish beer in favour of English and Scandinavian stuff). I had a pretty tasty black bean burger at a reasonable price. Take away bottles are available at a 10% discount. Overall, I would certainly go back.
