From Bar Raval’s curved Gaudi-inspired wooden bar to the tables made out of barrels, you’ll be surprised when you step outside and realize you’re still on College St. This Little Italy spot has a long cocktail list, along with plenty of beer and wine. Just make sure you’re prepared for the drinks to be strong, which is also when their tapas menu comes in. The warm octopus should be on your table and the canned seafood will surprise you in a really good way. You’ll probably eat your whole meal standing up shoulder-to-shoulder with a stranger though, so if you’d rather have more space, come before 6pm.
