We normally leave the Barcelona Bars to our sister guide, but this one was a bit special. Spain's first Oxygen bar opened last night on Thursday 14th of November.
Manhattan blends with Barcelona in this “New York” style lounge bar. The attentive table service together with a wide and varied cocktail menu are a welcome addition to the Barcelona circult. Located in the heart of Barcelona's hippest district, all you need to do is kick-back, relax and try one of the wild varieties of oxygen… yes oxygen! Mango was our favourite and the experience is truly breathtaking… if you'll pardon the pun!
The owners, Brian and James are well know business men in Sitges. The bar appeals to a very mixed crowd…. straight, gay and definitely beautiful! You just have to see the waiters in the uniforms.. kilts and boots… a killer combination! And it appears to be a trend as some of the guests even came in kilts too!

The cocktails were flowing well into the late-hours in typical Catalan style… attentively served by the lovely Alex.
