When it comes to nightlife and partying hard, Barcelona never disappoints. Thanks to the huge variety in bars, pubs and clubs, Barcelona attracts millions of visitors each year willing to make the most of the amazing nightlife scene!
I am myself an enthusiast and frequent customer of the many bars in Barcelona, and I must say that after a while one can have the impression that some of them are very similar.
They always rely on Tapas, Sangria, Beer and so on to attract customers, especially in the touristy areas.
By the way, if you fancy some Tapas, you can check our Barcelona Tapas Ultimate Guide 🙂 !
Even though it can be really enjoyable to share a few Tapas and a couple of pints with your friends, you can get tired of it and want to go for an unusual experience or atmosphere! This is why I have decided to talk to you about a very unique bar in Barcelona: Le Cyrano. It is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and is located in Aribau 154.
In my opinion, this is by far the best bar in Barcelona and its concept is just too awesome!!
Here is how El Cyrano works:
-First you enter the bar and hopefully find a table to sit. Yes, Le Cyrano is often packed so it’s better to either go early (it opens at 11PM so sometime around that) or to hope that one free table will be waiting for you!
-Then you go to the bar and order a drink of your choice. The bartender will give you an empty glass and will bring you the liquor bottle of your choice so that you can pour your own drink! I am serious, you can put as many alcohol as you like in your drink!! He then takes the bottle back and gives you a bottle of soda or juice to mix with your alcoholic beverage. Of course it is not recommended to fully pour your drink with alcohol as it could annoy the bartender but I have been there and you can put 70% or 80% of alcohol in your drink without a problem!!
-Concerning the prices, they are incredibly low! The price range is 3 – 5€ for any mixed drink, so that’s one hell of a deal!! Forget the clubs that make you pay at least 10€ for a drink!
The only negative point is that with people being numerous and most of them drunk, the place is really noisy and it can be challenging to talk to your friends and understand each other properly! But that shouldn’t be a problem since that’s the case in all the clubs and no one really cares.
Apart from that, this is the perfect place to go before going to a club!!! I usually prefer to “pre-game” at home with a few friends since drinking in bars before going to a club implies spending quite a lot of money, but I have to say that I was amazed when I went to Le Cyrano for the first time!
You can literally get wasted for 10-15 € there and after a few drinks it’s really easy to meet and talk to new people there while being with your friends at the same time!
And I forgot to mention that they have free pop-corn as well!
Everyone there is young, happy (half-drunk) and wants to have a crazy night out in Barcelona, isn’t that what you’d expect of a bar in Barcelona?!
So if you don’t have any plans for the weekend yet, you know where to go now!! Have fun guys!!
