Party Earth Can Fly Review

The Scene

Can Fly in Barcelona’s Barri Gòtic is a lesbian bar & tapas joint welcome to all. Grab a mellow drink in Barcelona with Party Earth.

Steps from the remnants of a 4th-century Roman wall in Plaça dels Traginers, funky little tapas joint and bar Can Fly offers guests a mellow, gay-friendly spot to hang out in the heart of the Gothic quarter.

Especially popular with a local lesbian crowd, the venue’s tiny outdoor terrace – located in the shadow of the ruins – is consistently full of groups of girls on warm nights, but patrons are just as likely to be wandering tourists on a break from sightseeing and hip locals of all sexual permutations.

Inside, colorful artwork decorates much of the cozy space, from graffiti-like displays to bright abstract projects, all designed by local artists.

The bar by the entrance is by no means overflowing with drink options, but the place still manages to stay busy throughout the night, starting with still-sandy friends making their way back from the nearby beaches before giving way to feisty groups and unpretentious pre-gamers taking advantage of the budget-friendly wine and cocktails.

A great place to kick off the evening or have a whole night’s worth of uproarious conversation, Can Fly is a hidden gem among the labyrinthine streets of the Barri Gòtic.

A proper gem!
Ernst B. Jan 12, 2013
With its quirky wall paper and cheap beer Can Fly is a must visit for any traveller (or local for that matter). Don’t hesitate to pull in there wearing your worn-out Hawaiian T-shirt of sandy flip flops, the vibe is chilled and you’d probably find some people not wearing any shoes at all... The ladies behind the bar are super chilled and sweet as hell. Besides that they’re also very focused on making you feel at home and making sure your bar-experience is nothing short of excellent. Some cool tunes playing in the background, a cold pint in your hands and you’re good to go.

Really enjoyed this bar. The outdoor setting is really peaceful earlier on, and then gets quite busy late into the night. Drinks are reasonably priced, as are the food options. I had the houmous and absolutely loved it. well worth checking out!
