for its oddball decor

Sor Rita is one of Barcelona’s unique bars. As well as its drinks menu, its friendly atmosphere and its lovely staff, the decor is completely wild and makes the time you spend at Sor Rita a truly unique experience.

Kitsch and quirky decor at Sor Rita

Sor Rita has based its decor on such different themes that it can be perplexing.

Where did they come up with the idea to combine posters of Jesus, photos of famous actresses, underwear hanging from the ceiling, Barbie dolls hanging from the lights and various nods to the films of Pedro Almodovar?

It remains a mystery but we don’t mind because the bizarre combination works wonderfully!

In fact, each wall of the bar represents a scene from an Almodovar film. And when I say “wall”, I mean it in the broadest sense. The ceiling is also included, with countless pairs of shoes and heels stuck to it. We did tell you this place was weird!

There’s beer (between 1 and 2 euros) wine (around 3 euros a glass) cava (around 11 euros a bottle), traditional and innovative cocktails (around 7 euros) or of course shots (around 2 euros), so there’s plenty to quench your thirst.
