we're on

Once the favoured hang out for dancers at the legendary El Molino theatre, Rouge was shut down when high society got a little too high for the authorities' liking. Now Rouge has re-opened and, if some of the naughtier goings-on no longer take place, the venue's seemingly irrepressibly louche and Bohemian atmosphere still prevails. The red lighting, shabby sofas, cherub-bedecked gold bar and kitsch art work (oil paintings of semi-naked lobster-sellers and badly-forged Van Eycks) all contribute to a chaotic and intimate setting, perfect for knocking back a cocktail or five. The crowd is older and more sophisticated than some of Barcelona's more touristy bars, the eclectic downtempo tunes a cut above the usual chart nonsense, and if you're lucky you'll catch a poetry performance or other artistic event. Open Wednesday to Sunday, Rouge also has WiFi if you need to log on with a lager earlier in the evening.

Rouge

Comme moi, vous ne supportez pas les grosses boîtes de nuit ou l'on ne trouve que des touristes ! Alors cette adresse est pour vous, Le Rouge, bien caché, mais vaut la peine d'être découvert pour toutes les personnes qui aiment découvrir un petit groupe de musique du coin en sirotant un super Mojito. De plus l'endroit est super bien décoré.

On a passé de très bonne soirée dans ce lieu.
