Porteño is the perfect bar to enjoy a few drinks during week nights or weekends before clubbing. It’s a small bar with friendly staff, upbeat / electronic music and always good vibes. I usually go simple for beer or wine, except when I’m at Porteño....More

The security guy was very agresive because locals were complaining. A waiter, a bold guy, came and harassed us saying he was going to break our head. Do 't recommed at all.

Portena is a typical Barrio Bar where locals gattere late at night for a drink. It was a really cozy bar with nice music but not so good drinks.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
