The first thing you notice on entering this famous gay bar is the picture of the actress, Marlene Dietrich. The spacious interiors can get crowded easily, which testifies to the popularity of this place. The plants, candelabras, and mirrors give this place a special appeal while the bartenders, drag queens and handsome male patrons are a big draw. The lower level features a bar and the upper level has a mini-disco where the DJ plays mini-funk and hyper-vocal house.
I enjoyed the atmosphere at Dietrich. It was crowded in the good sense with music playing at just the right volume. The atmosphere, unlike so many other places, did not feel paricularly cruisy: just people out to have a good time. Definitely the best gay bar I ran across in Barcelona.
