Calmness, silence, cosy conversations with friends… If at least a couple of these words is very important to you, forget about going to this crazy place!

Here everything is on the contrary: a small room with a bar is always full of people, the decibel level is getting up gradually.

Everything reminds a madhouse but for one exception – they serve their famous rose cava which costs just 1 euro for a glass and delicious home made sandwiches. But you will have to use all your sportsmanship to get to the bar!

Here in a dim room, illuminated only by neon lights and drunk sparkles in the eyes of the visitors, the barmen make a dream come true.

They know more than 200 shots which are all different in taste and strength.

If you are a newcomer and don’t know what to order,  there is a list of names on the wall: from innocent “Bomb” or “Tiramisu” to almost indecent “Get off, asshole” and “Kick my balls”.

Pesca Salada

Drinking gin tonic is nice. When you do it in a special place – twice nice. Back then, in the beginning of the 20th century, there was a fish store.

The owners decided to save the atmosphere but make it a bit more interesting and festive.

Fish scales on the walls, a huge tin can hanging from the ceiling and kind of aquarium in the tables. But that’s not all! Apart from its interior, there are more than 30 types of gin tonics starting from 6 euro made by the expert bartenders.
