On our quest for the typical Barcelona, we remembered Camper´s Dos Palillos Bar in the Raval. They describe it as ”a very high bar, not so comfortable bar stools, a tight spot in which one fights for 25cm of space, extravagant decoration with various kitsch elements; not understood by some but highly appreciated by others.”

Vinçon, its designers, labelled it a vulgar bar: “The disgraceful mix of materials, the wrong use of bulbs, elements that cause a degree of chaos in the bar, adjusting the stools to an impossible height are some of the things that create a feel of everything but design that is so necessary in Barcelona.” I guess there is some truth in that!
