Looking for a Bar in Barcelona can be hard, with so many options to choose from its like being a diabetic kid in a candy store. Yet, one place that has been around for a while, that is a must when doing a Raval Bar crawl is FRUTTI POP.
If you’re looking for a low-key bar away from the tourists and a place to meet the locals, FRUTTI POP is just what the doctor ordered. With decoplage walls, red velvet curtains and a musically Schizophrenic DJ. This is a great place to go when you have a group of friends whose taste in music vary as much as their taste in liquor.
VINTAGE PICS AND 2 EURO BEERS
From Soul, Hip-Hop, Indie Rock & Reggae – Frutti pop keeps it mixed up,and is a perfect place to start off your night. If eclectic is what you look for in a bar; you will feel at home in this local hole in the wall in the upper Raval.
Since the place is small, the vibe seems to change every time I go depending on which type of people have taken over the place. However, with 2 euro beers you really can’t complain. Tip: If you can squeeze through the crowds check out the collection of Vintage pictures in the bathroom.
Located behind the Teatro Goya, half the fun is finding the place… Find the theatre head down Joaquin Costas, First street on your left, half a block down on your left hand side.
** Personal note:Not recommended to go searching for this bar if you drunk.
