Party Earth Betty Ford's Review

The Scene

Betty Ford's in El Raval, Barcelona is an Aussie-owned bar with great cocktails, burgers, & chill vibes. Order a Royale with cheese at Party Earth Barcelona.

Burgers and booze unite at Betty Ford’s, a popular late-night haunt named for a former First Lady who – let’s face it – knew a thing or two about tying one on.

Ms. Ford was instrumental in launching the famous treatment centers that bear her name, an irony not missed by the regular crowd of hip twenty-somethings who consider the tiny joint a retreat for tasty cocktails.

Owned by an Australian, the venue attracts its share of rowdy Aussies looking to sling Cooper’s AIe as they barhop down Joaquín Costa, but tatted art students, plaid-clad designers, and local skateboarders usually dominate the evening’s roll call.

A soundtrack of funky soul takes a backseat to conversation as patrons pack in at small mismatched tables and the handful of larger benches to sip daiquiris and other powerful fruity mixes. And if conversation ever gets stunted, a kitschy surf mural and scattered vintage art including a painting of a hotel tryst involving the maid and an electric shaver make for inspiring fodder as guests wait for their plates.

Six burgers keep appetites in check, from the bare-bones Classic to the blue cheese-laden Galaxy, so groups of creative friends can settle in on overstuffed armchairs and stuff their faces as vintage films and surf videos project against the wall.

It’s not unusual for the kitchen to run empty on a busy weekend night, but with its festive yet relaxed vibe and tidy selection of drinks, Betty Ford’s can be everyone’s BFF for at least one round.

Tip from Jonah:

There’s a special house dip for the French fries. No idea what’s in it. Don’t care. Good.

  • Crowd

    Local art students, indie rockers, grunge kids, skateboarders, and Aussies looking for a taste or two of home, 20s to early 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient funky soul and disco played at conversation-friendly levels.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Burger menu features a half dozen options, including vegetarian burgers.

  • Prices

    Burgers €6.50–€7+. Beer €2.50–€6, wine €2.50, cocktails €6–€8.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Funky casual: retro button-downs, flannel, Trilby hats, plaid skirts, cool blouses, quirky hairstyles.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any night when anything less than a burger and a beer just won’t do, though earlier in the week promises less of a chance that Betty will run out of burgers before the night is over.

  • Close By

    Manchester Raval (Carrer de Valldonzella, 40) is home to a similar indie vibe, cheap beer, and pulsing rock and roll anthems.

Beers, burgers and new best friends!

Betty Ford's is the kind of place you pop into to take shelter from the rain and end up scraping your name off the floor at 2 am in the morning after getting to know all the ins and outs of everyone else in the bar. It has a way of stopping all the clocks and allows your alter ego to roam free for night. The bar staff and owners are really friendly and eager to make you feel at home. Be warned: some of the burgers are really hot. Make sure you have full glass of beer to douse the flames once you've tucked in.
Burgers, Aussies, and Beer! Oy Oy Oy!

Love this little place. It’s popular as all get out and almost always packed whenever I have dropped by. Sees a big crunch right after work that carries it through the night. They make a damn fine cocktail here, and if you’re in the mood for a tasty burger you shouldn’t let the limited menu fool you as they are very good. I think it’s owned by an Australian because there are always a ton of happy Aussies in here. An Aussie girl’s accent is enough to make me do pretty much anything. Good crowd, good food, good grog. What more do you want? Go.
