Of all the bars in Raval, Ambar is perhaps the one that personifies this eclectic area the best. Just like the district, the decor is a surprising mix of the brand new and the downright shabby. Slick red bar top, metallic stools and modern floor-to-ceiling windows contrast with threadbare sofas, gilt-gold picture frames (devoid of pictures) and lamps stolen from your great aunt's bedsit. Somehow it works and as a result Ambar is perenially full of cool kids, couples and lost souls, waxing lyrical, snogging and composing poetry respectively. In summer a seat outside at the bottom of the Rambla de Raval is a perfect perching point.
Pretty decent place. Nice ambiance. A good place where to start the night chilling out before heading to craziness.

Def one of my fave places to kick back in Barcelona. Always cool people, skateboarders, students, chilled out vibe. Has some good beers and never had any problem with the staff

Decent place to hang out with a beer. Bar staff could be friendlier, but overall a decent gaff
