Great Bars with Terraces - Part 2

With the un predictable weather Barcelona is having recently, it's important to have a few options for when the sunshine does finally break out, especially if you're only here for a short break and it's been raining for most of the time! So sparked on from my post a couple of weeks ago, here's another great bar with a terrace.

Just just off Las Ramblas on the corner of Pintor Fortuny and Xuclà(and not very far from my previous reccomendation of El Jardi) is Bar Lobo.

Bar Lobo is part of the Hotel 1898 on Las Ramblas, and also combines "El Japones" restaurant which runs the length of the corner from Las Ramblas to the corner of Xuclà. The cool thing about El Lobo is that it can be any place you want it to be - morning coffee spot, lunchtime place for sun and a book, afternoon tea/beer break, and cocktail spot on an evening (and while you're downstairs, why not check out the excellent La Isabela rooftop bar, inside the hotel too!). Despite being leterally 10 seconds walk from the busy Ramblas, the terrace of El Lobo is usually fairly easy to get a table, or you don't have to wait as long. And there's no goldfish bowls of flat coke here, like on Las Ramblas terraces!

For your accomodation needs in the city, try self catering apartments for rent in Barcelona - many of which have terraces too.
