Like most gay activist groups, Col.lectiu Gai de Barcelona does plenty of good and admirable work but – blame it on relatively gay-friendly times, post-gay culture or just general apathy – most otherwise out and proud homos tend to steer well clear of pink triangles and rainbow flags. And this place adorns plenty of both.

But, boy, are the drinks cheap here. In the heart of Gayxample, in humble quarters that somehow manage to maintains an 80s activist, slightly underground vibe, you pay four euros for a generously poured drink (and less than two for a beer) that would set you back the double one block away.

The boys, with a few notable exceptions, aren’t necessarily the hottest, but the drinks sure are cheap. Bring your own company and liquor up here before starting the night for real. (But tip the bartender generously – the majority volunteer their time for free.)
