Go early to get the comfortable couches, it gets packed on weekends
One of the coolest places to listen to live music and a enjoy a few cocktails in what used to be an old wine cellar, El Paraigua is an excellent place to spend an evening. Situated in the Gotico, behind Plaza Sant Jaume, downstairs from Paraigua restaurant, this trendy cocktail lounge is definitely off the beaten path and hard to stumble upon if you don't know what you're looking for. Featuring live jazz, blues and bands every Friday-Sunday, a night at El Paraigua will bring you back to the 50's, in a place that used to be one of the oldest convents in the Gothic Quarter.
