Bars in El Raval Overview

Aurora - Bar in El Raval, Barcelona

El Raval has experienced a major overhaul over the past decade, and perhaps no aspect of the neighborhood has been leading the charge more so than its nightlife. Under the leadership of an array of trendy and happening nightspots, the bars in El Raval have quickly risen to the top for much of Barcelona’s young and alternative crowd when it comes to a night out.

At the heart of El Raval’s revival is the street Carrer de Joaquîn Costa, which among its numerous popular bars and lounges includes Betty Ford's, a local favorite for booze and burgers.

If Carrer de Joaquîn Costa is at the heart of El Raval’s bar scene, then Bar Marsella is unequivocally its soul. This historic bar located near Plaça de Raval represents the resilience of El Raval as it creeps toward the two-hundred-year-old mark, one absinthe at a time.

Another part of the appeal of El Raval’s bars is the abundance of budget-friendly options. Many spots offer late-night happy hour deals of bottles of beer for just one euro, while places like Manchester Raval and Absenta offer great deals without compromising atmosphere.

The combination of affordability, historic bars, and trendy up-and-coming bars has El Raval’s nightlife on the minds of many of Barcelona’s most ardent partiers.
