I think i'm scared of themed bars!
Whilst browsing the internet looking for places to visit in Barcelona, I came across a bar called El bosc de las fades (the forest of the fairies).
I don't know whether I would have the courage to go here – it sounds like this may be where the crazy people go!
With this description – who can resist! The Sagrada Familia pails in comparison!
A dark, dimly lit, windowless place, where the windows have been replaced by weird, illusionary mirrors to either represent the mist beyond the trees or vertical, stagnant, silvery pools of mystery. Lanterns hanging from the branches, lanterns that resemble a dewdrop of radioactive snot, provide the internal light amongst the trees.
You can choose to sit on a toadstool or cross the little bridge across the grotto while the ambience is further enhanced by the background noise of forestry sounds, distant storms, insects and wild animals.
It also reminds me of the rather surreal Jekyll and Hyde Club in New York!
