Bar Marsella
Bar Marsella. Absinthe bar in Raval area of Barcelona. Opened in 1820 and not dusted or painted since by the look of it. The crumbling and ancient interior with high ceilings in the Raval barrio does, however, have a special atmosphere not least because it's easy to imagine past customers like Picasso, Dali and Hemingway swilling down absinthe here. Many tourists come to try the absenta - absinthe, which is served in a glass and then cold water is poured over a sugar cube resting on a small fork lying across the top of the glass. When the sugar has dissolved use the fork to mix the sugar and absinthe, drink and wait for the funny pictures to appear. Not in a pretty neighbourhood, but if you looking for inspiration in the hallucinatory effects that absinthe is said to produce, then this is the place. Absinthe is the house speciality, but beers and other drinks are available.
