El Bosc de les Fades

El Bosc de les FadesI 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A dark, dimly lit, windowless place, where the windows have been replaced by weird, illusionary mirrors to either represent the mist beyond the trees or vertical, stagnant, silvery pools of mystery.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!

  1. The Fairy thing could be really cool – or just plain dreadful. It does look quite magical – but you'd probably feel foolish if you turned up as tinkerbell.

    I’ve actually been here three times and it’s really cool. Chilled atmosphere, no music as i recall, just the hum of people chatting and having fun! Give it a try!

    Was here about 5 years ago and agree with CJ – it’s pretty cool. Can be a bit dark so maybe not advisable for really small children in tow but older kids (over 7) would probably find it interesting while Mom and Dad have a swift pint of something cold! There isn’t music but “background noises” such as birds and thunder which adds to the atmosphere of the place. It’s down a side alley at the bottom of Las Ramblas (if you find the wax museum it’s down that street to the right if I remember correctly).

    I was there last night. I thought it was a cool place in a kitsch sort of way. I wouldn’t recommend taking children in there. It seemed that there were few people in there under about 35. Would recommend going in there. Interesting place. There seemed to be a lot of snogging going on which some parents may not want to expose their kids to!
