This is a relatively new addition to the Eixample area. It's a large but cosy Gay bar/ club that is very popular with the gay community but has an open attitude to anyone and everyone.

The best thing about the Barcelona Gay bar is the events, live DJ sessions, exhibitions from new artists and film festivals, all make Sweet café somewhere very funky for your pre-clubbing drinks. Look out for the flyers and posters (visible from their cherry logo!) in the area that tell you what's on.

Atame (translates as tie me up!) is a smallish, modern, Gay bar/ club right in the heart of Eixample. You will probably find it's mostly men ( I had a friend that went and found herself to be the only girl there) but although the bar's main clientele are gay it does welcome everyone.
This Gay Bar gets pretty busy on weekends so arrive early. There's a happy hour on Thursday evening and on Sundays from 23:00 there are live shows from drag performances to cabaret to the slightly more risqué.

This large bar is well established in the gay scene and is a good meeting point. It's pretty funky and has differing exhibitions of new artists. Plus with each drink you buy you get a free ticket to one of the Arena clubs (of which there are 5), all popular gay clubs.
