Hip bar which attracts a diverse crowd

One of Raval’s more sophisticated sipping stops, Marmalade has succeeded in creating an elegant but unpretentious ambiance that appeals to a diverse crowd. From the smartly-attired office workers swigging cervezas and talking animatedly in Catalan, to louche Bohemians sprawling over the low-slung sofas with a cocktail – not to mention a smattering of in-the-know expats propping up the bar – this is a place which seems to effortlessly morph to fit the folk who inhabit it.

The decor of floor tiles, redbrick walls and (what we’re dubbing) ‘new Modernista’ murals is certainly conducive to sampling Marmalade’s menu of original cocktails – a ‘Naked Lunch Martini’ anyone? Meanwhile a splendid matte-black billiard table provides extra social opportunities, and the peckish will enjoy nibbling on the bar’s impressive food menu. And if you find yourself in El Gotic instead, check out their little sister, Milk Bar & Bistro.

  • "I love this bar." - by Gerrie
    Cool & hip. Fantastic decor, amazing mural on the back wall. Wonderful Cocktails and so reasonable. The staff are very helpfull & friendly.. The food is delicious and again so well priced. Their ribs are without doubt the BEST RIBS I have ever eaten & the sauce is to die for. They also have an outdoor area to the front of the bar where u can enjoy your food and drinks while taking in the sun. This is a must for anyone visiting Barcelona. Well done to the Irish Owners for this wonderful gem.
