Party Earth Guru (Barri Gòtic) Review

The Scene

Not to be confused with the rambunctious bar with the same name on Nou de la Rambla, this Guru bar is an altogether more refined, low-key venue.

Not to be confused with the rambunctious bar with the same name on Nou de la Rambla, this Guru bar is an altogether more refined, low-key venue.

A smiling Buddha in the window greets customers as they arrive, while inside, the ornate sofas, piles of plush cushions, somber browns and deep red tones, and burning incense create a soothing atmosphere for enjoying the slow life with an inventive and well-mixed cocktail.

Add to that the benefit of a largely English-speaking staff, tasty Tex-Mex and Italian eats, and sensual ambient tunes on the sound system, and it’s no wonder why many locals recommend the place for a first date.

Romantic and mellow early in the evening, the largest influx of chic regulars tends to arrive around 11:30pm before venturing out to the surrounding clubs. This crowd can be a bit cliquey, however – and the house soundtrack turns up around this time too – so it may not be the best place for meeting new people.

Nonetheless, Guru is an enlightened spot to bring someone who visitors would like to get to know better.

Tip from Adriana:

Some of the cocktails here are just out of this world, so anyone tired of the usual mojitos and caipirinhas should definitely stop by to sample a Chupa Chups, Pamplemousse, or Pornstar.

  • Crowd

    Sophisticated and well-dressed locals, 25 to 35.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Excellent selection of typical bar tracks and projected visuals above the Buddha in the window.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Tex-Mex, Italian, and Spanish appetizers and entrées, including spicy chicken wings, jalapeños, and hot nachos.

  • Prices

    Food €5+. Beer €3+, cocktails €8+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Smart casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    The bar tends to be quiet midweek, but Thursdays to Sundays after 11pm generally have the best atmosphere.
