Sub Rosa is a hidden gem among the urine soaked alleyways that run like capillaries off of Plaça Reial.

Daquiris seem to be their specialty with many different flavors; strawberry, cherry, kiwi etc. My favorite is cherry which is evident by my purple lips after 5 or 6 of them… They usually have an array of cocktails on special for 3€ and going up to €6 when happy hour is over.

The décor is a wonderful mix of kitsch paintings and rose colored vintage lamps draped with scarves giving the place a very homey feel like you are having a drink at your dear old grandmas house (but with clientele a bit more around your age bracket).
This isn’t the place to go with a big group of rowdy friends (because it’s a tiny, one room establishment), but perhaps more suited to a date night or a few quite ones with a couple of friends.
The staff are utlra friendly and you can meet locals, which is a breath of fresh air after some of the other clubs which are saturated in tourists.
Check out the kinky wallpapered bathrooms if you aren’t feeling prudish and it could take your mind back to the Erotic Museum!

Hola! My name is Becky. I´m yet another Australian expat who fell for the beautiful mistress we like to call Barcelona and stayed far, far longer than once intended. I throw myself into the cities events, bars, clubs, shops etc, with reckless abandon to bring you these reviews. It´s all for you! ...Or is it just an excuse to party and spend lots of money without feeling guilty?... Either way, read up on some of my favorite ways to see this exciting and eclectic city. Happy travels and welcome to BCN!
