When i went into bar El Bitxo in a small street off Palau de la Música, I immediately felt like inside the movie Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen.
A slightly bizarre, but very friendly waitress, a tapas menu displayed on sheets of paper hanging all around this rather small place, lots of fresh flowers giving the bar a somehow too intense smell (if you are allergic, beware of going to this place), a good selection of wines and very good looking tapas. I unfortunately did not get to try the food, as I only had a couple of glasses of wine, bu they definitely looked incredible.
The waiters speak a very good english and if you are hot, use the “habanicos” (fans) hanging on strings at the bar.
Another thing I actually liked was that inside el Bitxo there is no phone reception!
