It arguably doesn't get any cozier than Bar Café de les Delícies. A quiet little escape in Raval, the vivacious neighborhood in Barcelona. It's the perfect intimate setting for a night out on the town with your partner. The place is entirely homely looking as if someone's townhouse was turned into a cafe/bar. During the afternoon, it operates as a standard cafe, welcoming guests with their delicious tapas and strong coffees. But by nightfall, they become a quaint bar offering delicious cocktail drinks to lovers passing by.

What's a date without a little excitement? Boring, that's what! So if you want a little bit of fun for your night out, check out the El Paradiso bar. True to its name, its tropical ambiance gives major Ibiza vibes! The place itself is a standard speakeasy with lit bottle drawers, a nice cozy space, and good music. But the fun part is that you won't know where it is. Set in the Born district, you'll first see a Pastrami bar (which is worth visiting for a nice snack as well) in place of where the bar is said to be. But once you open a large fridge door, you'll soon discover that the bar is actually hidden inside!

Despite its name, Le Standard is far from your standard speakeasy. For one thing, it doesn't even resemble an ordinary bar. It looks more like someone's living room converted into a bar. And that's the beauty of the place! Spending a night here is like hanging out at home with your partner (during a small soiree of course). It's that cozy and intimate, you'll forget you're actually in a public space. So don't get carried away when you're here!

Pura Vida isn't your typical date night hotspot. For one thing, the place is brightly-lit. It's a bar, yes, and yet the place resembles a homemade cafe with charming decor and a white-hued color scheme. It looks more like the type of place you'd invite your partner over for a second date, not somewhere you'd escape to in the romantic city in Barcelona. Though it’s definitely an Instagram-worthy sight to see! But that is the charm of it. That it's adorable and quaint enough to make you feel right at home.
