"Tucked away on a side street in the Barri Gòtic area is a little red gem called Sugar._x000D_

Tucked away on a side street in the Barri Gòtic area is a little red gem called Sugar.

It’s all about the cocktails at this sweet bar, and the list of specialties written in chalk on the ceiling are well worth the neck strain.

Sugar’s simple but enticing décor of baroque murals, erotic artwork, and twinkling lights contributes to its laid-back, funky atmosphere, while crimson-cushioned window seats and intimate red lighting in the bar area lend an air of intrigue.

A buzz of energy permeates the room as people chat excitedly over tasty piña coladas and the pumping music – and the tight space means that there’s plenty of mingling going on.

With its nightly Happy Hours, eclectic bar tunes, and great location, Sugar is a perfect place to warm up for the clubs, especially during the week when it’s one of the more reliably busy hangouts around the Gothic Quarter.

Tip from Emma:

For a free shot before 11pm and other deals, pick up a flyer from the promoters on Ferran Street. If you want to drink cheaply all night, then swing by on Tuesdays when Happy Hour lasts until closing time.

  • Crowd

    Chatty locals and travelers, 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    A mix of sounds on the stereo, including rock, pop, funk, rap, hip-hop, and old-school dance tracks.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Happy Hour daily 8–11pm.

  • Prices

    Beer €1.50+, cocktails €5+, shots €2.50.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Friday and Saturday nights are guaranteed to be lively, but Sugar also has a great mid-week vibe.

  • Close By

    Right next door is Sugar’s twin bar, Sub Rosa, which is equally cool with its kooky artwork and Gothic vibe. The crowd is more international, but the mojitos are just as expertly mixed.

the little red bar
Jenny H. Nov 3, 2013
The little red bar. Also known as Sugar. Always the same good energy and good music. The energy in this place does not change a lot, only the people coming in and out of the entrance. There`s a good vibe and the prices are ok. Could be a bit bigger, if you look at it from a dance perspective, but then again it`s a cozy little red bar. Perfect to go out with your friends, before the big party or going home. You decide, and that`s what i like about this place. But be careful, do not talk loud outside. Might get a bucket of water streaming down your face.
The Land of Milk and Sugar!

Sugar took me right back to my youth (which might or might not be many full moons ago...). The minute the familiar warmth of the bar hit my chest I felt like a born again bar virgin – young and impressionable, eager to taste the forbidden fruits that I have been denied for so long. The red theme aptly sets the mood for a rowdy night of raucous behaviour, rude jokes and drinking games. The beer is cheap and glorious. The bathroom is a scene out of a glow-in-the-dark video game and the little lounge nook is perfect for your next date. Don’t miss it!
Intimate, cozy atmosphere
Kendrick K. Aug 30, 2012
With its small space and dimly red lights, Sugar provides a very unique, cozy environment. The bar attracts a wide range of friendly people who love to have a great time. The bar has great, cheap drinks during Happy Hour, so definitely take advantage. Seating is limited so it’s best to arrive early and possibly get one of the awesome lounge areas at the far corner of the bar!
Cheap drinks and a great atmosphere!
Mahika G. Aug 30, 2012
Sugar is probably one of the best places in the city for ridiculously cheap drinks paired with a cozy environment. Filled with locals and tourists alike, the venue offers night goers a quirky and relaxed place to meet with friends or meet new people over cheap cocktails all night long. With it's red lighting, compact space, and upbeat indie music, Sugar creates a friendly, and unique atmosphere which appeals to all sorts of people. Definitely come in for Happy Hour, which usually lasts until 11, for a cocktail for 3.50!
