In the evening, the bar that belongs to the Casa Bonay hotel is transformed into a cocktail bar, where you’ll find a long list of natural wines, craft beers and cocktails. Also, during the weekend, Libertine hosts some of the city’s best musical talents for your enjoyment.

It has been 11 years since Patrice Rondo and Rodrigo Van Zeller opened Madame Jasmine in Chinatown. It is said that the place was once a brothel: the owners neither confirm nor deny it. The pop posters, exotic upholstery and dim lighting blur the faces to the sound of Bambino, Rocío Jurado and Carmen de Mairena. In this bar you can have a drink while you enjoy one of their shows or have the best lunch in the world.
Rambla del Raval, 22
It all started with a trip to Berlin: it was there that its founders, Javier Meneses and Alex Schoihet, gave birth to the concept of the Candy Darling Bar, a friendly space of leisure and queer liberation. This bar is an ideal place to go and try what they call a bikini darling, with such as “Pastrami Queer”, “Naturist” or “Versatile”, but also to enjoy the drag, circus and burlesque shows or the queer art exhibitions that inhabit the space.
