Bar Name: Barcelona Bar
Location: 923 8th Avenue, New York, NY, USA
What to Order: It’s not just a shots bar but a themed shots bar. Many of them are based on movies (my guess is because the bartenders are huge movie buffs). For some of these shots, it’s the equivalent of a dinner and a show. Huge recommendations are the Harry Potter shots (it appeals to the kid in us), Full Metal Jacket (if you’re in the mood to be humiliated), and Sloppy Seconds if you’re there with a significant other or a hot date.
What Else: They’ve got darts, two good-sized flat screens, an updated jukebox (not the old-school ones) and great bartenders who are truly pros at what they do. If you ask nicely, they’ll create new shots for you, and being the perfectionist mixologists that they are, I guarantee it’ll taste great.
Vibe: It’s a laidback atmosphere with the clientele controlling the music (no stuffy DJs here)! It’s actually a pretty flexible atmosphere as bartenders cater to people of all walks of life.
Go With: Anyone you want to get laid with that night, or come alone if you’re looking to get a lay other than your partner.
