Your friends will be pleased if you lead them to this rather hip watering hole, hidden - as with most of the best bars in Barcelona - down a dark and desolate looking alley. The name Polaroid hints at the 80s theme, explored in full by the bar's superbly kitsch tribute decor. VHS tapes are glued to the wall, along with posters of all your favourite movies from Flashdance to Top Gun, and suspended above the toilets is a small bike before a huge moon, its basket loaded with none other E.T. himself. With canas at one euro and a good-looking mix of locals and foreigners no wonder breathing space is at a premium. Still the cool factor makes Polaroid worth the crush.

They have couchsurfing meetings here during summer which are quite funny. Only problem can be the heat as there is no air and when its crowdy you can suffocate with heat! But i still recommend just drink a cold mojito to recover

coctails are great.. but the very best is the music, only the gratest classics of spanish rock&pop

Great crowd great songs great times! Polaroid is the best bar in the Barri Gotico and perfect to warm up the night before going to Barcelona's clubs

Naked Italians Spark Protests
Three naked Italians walk into a supermarket... wait, that's not the start of a bad joke, but a potential hazard of visiting Barcelona's pop...
