This is a relatively new bar in Barcelona. It's owned and run by a young Scotsman (whose name I can't remember ?Pete?). We were looking for somewhere to eat and the owner asked us if we needed directions. When we explained we were looking for a particular restaurant (from the Lonely Planet book), he suggested that we come into his bar to eat instead. Now, this kind of behaviour can often put you off a place straight away, but he wasn't at all pushy. He offered us a couple of tapas samplers free of charge. We were still a bit reluctant, but eventually we decided to take up his offer of the samplers and we weren't disappointed. We ordered 2 giant plates of mixed tapas and it was the best food we had eaten in Barcelona. The chef was also a Brit, a young English woman.
I almost gave this bar only 4 stars as they serve Heineken and not Estrella - shame!! We also had a couple of cocktails which were really well made too.
There is a small art gallery above the bar and there is some artwork displayed in the bar too.
The only downside (apart from the Heineken!) is the location. It's off the main streets and it's a little dark and quiet on the approach streets so people travelling alone might not feel too comfortable?
