Party Earth Muy Buenas Review

The Scene

Muy Buenas in Barcelona’s El Raval is a cozy Modernista local with South American/Arabic bites & great mojitos. Relax in Barcelona with Party Earth.

Barcelona certainly isn’t lacking in Modernista-style architecture, and such form is in full effect at quiet El Raval watering hole Muy Buenas – though most people show up to taste the Cuban staff’s signature mojitos rather than to ogle examples of art nouveau.

Open for breakfast throughout much of the week, this rustic spot feels worlds away from the touristy madness of Las Ramblas – a five-minute walk to the east – and is an ideal place to recharge with eclectic fusion fare that’s very fair to the wallet.

Etched glass, candles, Gaudí-esque sculptures, ornately carved wood trimmings, and pastel walls softly covered in cartoony abstracts and the cracks of time all highlight the small venue’s artsy and classically Catalan atmosphere – all of which can be enjoyed over a menu that mixes Cuban staples with Arabic bites.

Local creative types and chill groups of friends dominate the daytime scene, while the venue is known to pick up at night with a mix of Raval barhoppers looking to pre-game with mojitos mashed up on the marble bar.

Even with weekend crowds, however, the place never gets rowdy, especially if couples sneak up to the intimate second floor that overlooks the bar.

Relaxed and authentic, Muy Buenas is a part of El Ravel that remains untainted by tourism, and that is a “very good” thing indeed.

Tip from Jonah:

Since this is primarily a locals’ joint, dropping in during traditional siesta hours (4 to 8pm-ish) all but guarantees a near-empty house. And since Happy Hour runs till 9pm, you’ll have lots of time to enjoy €3.50 mojitos without having to fight for the bartender’s attention.

  • Crowd

    Artsy post-grads, old poets, creative professionals, Raval barhoppers, casual locals, mojito fans, the occasional savvy tourist, mid-20s to 50s+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient Latin rhythms. Occasional live music and poetry readings.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Variety of South America-influenced tapas, traditional Cuban eats, and Arabic bites like couscous, pasta dishes, and pastries.

    Happy Hour M–F open–9pm.

  • Prices

    Bar food and appetizers €1.50+, entrées €7+. Beer €2+, wine €3+, cocktails €3.50+, shots €2.50+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: t-shirts, jeans, summer dresses, flip-flops, ballerina shoes, blouses.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any evening for a relaxed atmosphere and a few signature mojitos.

  • Close By

    Although situated just off the main Las Ramblas thoroughfare, Boadas (Carrer dels Tallers, 1) is rumored to be the very first cocktail bar in Spain, so it would be hard to dismiss it as just another tourist trap.
