Anyone with a penchant for risk-taking may want to try their luck at Casino Barcelona, where they can attempt to double their money or at least have fun blowing the whole lot.
Split into two levels, the casino’s downstairs Main Room (Sala Principal) is reserved for serious gamblers who know the difference between Omaha and Texas Hold’em and don’t need to be reminded of the rules of blackjack.
This room attracts a fair share of both visiting and local business people who line up at the roulette tables, as well as stoic young men in dark glasses who do battle over cards. The floor also contains a posh restaurant and a bevy of white-coated servers who ferry drinks to the winners.
The atmosphere is a bit more relaxed in the upstairs American Room (Sala Americana), where 275 slot and gaming machines provide plenty of entertainment for a mix of older tourists and young gambling novices.
Although the place lacks the glamour and extravagance of larger venues, Casino Barcelona is serviceable enough and is a good option for rainy days in Spain.
Foreign and local business people and serious gamblers downstairs, mostly older tourists on the slot machines, 30s and 40s.
French roulette, American roulette, blackjack, craps, poker, and slot machines.
