Spain’s first “Polinesian” cocktail bar is a holdover from Catalunya’s 1970s love affair with tiki (there were once 14 tiki bars in Barcelona). With a waterfall entrance, sculptures made of volcanic stone, the ambient sounds of birds and huge ponds where tropical fish mingle with live piranhas (“¡Cuidado Pirañas!”), Kahala is as atmospheric as tiki can get. Classic tiki cocktails are served in a uniquely Catalan take on tiki drinkware.

What to drink
A customized Mai Tai, made from a combination of esoteric rums the bartender will let you pick yourself (if you ask kindly).
Arrive early to beat the university crowd, which often creates a line during late night.
