Salvatge, or wild in English, is a bar that serves just that, wild and natural wines from a wall of wine. I ask you, what is a more joyous sight than a wall with wine on tap? Ask for a recommendation to your taste from the lovely waitresses. A fun and buzy local atmosphere most evenings with a cool, stripped back design.

33 / 45
Joaquim Costa street in Raval definitley has some of the best bars. 33/45 is fun and busy and opens until late. While you're there you might as well visit all the bars up that road, you'll end up in Betty Fords which is always a fun way to round off a rowdy night. Don't forget to stop at Olympic on your way up for €3 Mojitos that pack a punch.

Further down on Rambla Raval is El Rouje, a bar with a naughty history where the dancers of El Molina used to frequent before the authorities shut it down. A similarly louche vibe remains, with red lighting and vintage styling. They often have live music, or otherwise something good and loud.
