Carrer de les Sitges 5, Raval
L'Ovella Negra is one of the most well-known student bars in the city, that is always crowded, has long line ups, sticky floors (beer spills) and probably the most chilled and fun vibe of all the other places in Barcelona. L'Ovella Negra is not your typical small bar, tucked away in a dark Raval corner, decorated with soft-light lamps and cherry-topped by hot bartenders; no, this place is huge, windowless and reminds more of a monastery (what with all wooden benches and brick walls) with monks completely missing. It's great for beer drinking as Americans, Canadians and the British know it вЂ“ served in mugs or pints rather than caГ±as, and decently priced at that (5в‚¬ for a huge one). Sangria here is also famous for sizes it comes in, and simple tapas food is served throughout the day. Finding a place to sit, let alone a separate table may be problematic on Fridays and Saturdays, but the mostly international crowd is very friendly and will allow you to squeeze in somewhere on the side. Great for meeting new friends and practicing vocal skills вЂ“ shouting is essential in L'Ovella Negra's never-ending noise.
