Plata Bar Review

Plata Bar wins the high-end award in our Barcelona Gay Escape. “Plata” means “silver” in Spanish which is appropriate because you’ll get ‘silver service’ here. The quality of drink is very high and, as a cocktail bar, their cocktails aren’t to miss.

You can really feel the quality in here. It’s not just the drink and shiny looking bar, the tables inside (yes they have tables outside too!) have been sensitively spaced to give everybody plenty of room. It has room beyond the bar (on two floors), if they get too busy. The design of the place never feels empty when it’s empty and it never feels full when it’s full. As if by magic!

While the quality in here is high, their prices are reasonable for what you’re getting. When creating the Barcelona Gay Escape, we made sure the prices and quality were compatible or better. Plata Bar is the place to go for a civilised drink (but not too civilised!) to wind down or gently ease into your night out. It’s a great place to take a loved one. It’s an excellent romantic backdrop to compliment your evening. Don’t think candles and French waiters though. We’re still talking about a Spanish bar!

While couples love Plata Bar, groups of friends are still the more common clientele here. Plata Bar attracts a broad spectrum of people. What do they all have in common? They’re looking for something a little special, without being pretentious and still close to all the action. That’s why we’ve decided Plata Bar wins gold in our Barcelona Gay Escape!
