El Cangrejo is a very kitsh bar where Drag queens perform, they also have little non-pretentious theatre plays... a very interesting combination. Drinks and fun, it's definitly a winter bar (too hot for the summer), it's an old Spanish pop bar. Be one of the foreigners there!

free and it's well worth a visit.
A fine venue for free photo exhibitions on La Rambla, in a peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of this grand avenue. Whether you're a photography enthusiast or an amateur, it's well worth a visit.

simple and cool to visit
As I only had a day to visit, it was a simple and efficient way. Great air-conditioning on the lower floor of the bus. Well-organised and friendly welcome.

for the Gaudi buildings
For the Gaudi buildings but not for the shopping... very nice shops like everywhere else in the world, no interest.

impressed by this brilliant creator
As I learned more about Antoni Gaudí's life while visiting his works, I was deeply impressed by his devotion to architecture and his unique artistic vision. He was a passionate man who devoted his life to creating extraordinary buildings.

only a library
Not to be confused - as I was - with the architect Lluís Domènech's Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, now known as Sant Pau Hospital or the Modernist Site of Sant Pau ;-) c

not to miss If you like Gaudi
The architecture of the Palais Güell is very distinctive, with a slightly Gothic atmosphere, but whether you like it or not, the visit is well worth the diversion. I recommend the audioguide (included in the price of admission) which, as well as being very well produced and comprehensive, is essential for understanding the history of the place and imagining the life of its inhabitants. Allow a good hour.

    El Cangrejo, como pub, es muy bueno, por el servicio, la música y la decoración. Hacen espectáculos de travestis que animan al público, pero cuidado si vas con gente de otras culturas son un foco de burla fácil para el show y hace que estas personas se sientan mal, porque les cuesta establecer límites entre la risa y la mala educación que cae en tópicos que deberían estar superados, y más entre gente de la noche, abierta y presumiblemente sin prejuicios.

  3. New and improved - Paul (4 Feb 2008 - 16:01)

    Ignore the July '06 report as everything has been remodelled and updated. Best Club in town - amazing music, GREAT atmosphere, hotties and cuties at every turn !!!

  4. Que viva el Cangrejo! - M. (13 Jul 2007 - 23:38)

    Just three words: DON'T MISS IT.

    Well, a few more now: great crowd, great music, great vibe and the awareness of being in one of, if not THE best club in Barcelona. Never seen that many people smiling and having a reeeeal good time!

    It was closed for a while, moved to another location, now it's back (with a vengeance) in the original spot in Raval.


  5. the best club ever!!!! - loreal girl....jejeje (20 Jun 2007 - 21:10)

  6. El Cangrejo - Robert (1 Jul 2006 - 21:27)

    We were in the Cangrejo earlier this year. It's quite down at heel and a bit tatty, and is in a less than salubrious part of town, but it was absolutely packed with local lunatics singing along to the 60's Spanish pop being mimed by the drag performers. All the other punters could see we were obviously visitors, but were very welcoming.

    It's incredibly friendly, and very busy. Suspend your disbelief and give it a try.
