We are just decided yesterday spontaneous to go to eat something and founded on Tripadvisor The Box. It was a really good decision. Food was very delicious. The service was perfect and everyone was very nice. We will go back next time for sure.

This bar is one of a kind. Incredible drinks with SO much flavor in a cosy and warm atmosphere. My favorite is rosemary and bubblegum- try it! Didn’t try the hotdog but people seem crazy about it ;)

Great place for a bite and a drink. The hotdogs are amazing and more than enough for one person. They come with homemade pineapple sauce that is delicious. Their nachos are also really good and huge! I was definitely struggling to finish one by myself. The star of the show is their infused rums though. They have a whole wall full of different flavors. I had the rose and the basil. The basil didnt really shine through but the rose was amazing!
Finally you have to check out their bathroom. Definitely one of the most unique bathrooms I've ever seen.

Friendly staff and lots of rum, definitely check it out if you are in Barcelona, don’t try curry rum, it’s as bad of an idea as it sounds.

FANTASTIC rum bar!! The cocktails were absolutely delicious (recommend the berry and basil rum as a house cocktail and the Deyon's Classic) 🍹 Food is super tasty too! A must go to in Barcelona!!

Drinks: Wife had rum infused daiquiris, 1 lychee and 1 rose, and both were bomb. Bartender knows what he’s doing and how to create good flavor combinations - trust him to surprise you if you can’t decide. I had beer and a ginger bread infused daiquiri with a chili spice. Subtle yet present flavors, and delicious!

Food: Wife and I shared nachos plus a Lola dog. Portions are big but sharing both was about the perfect amount. Nachos are simple but good. The dog is flavorful, juicy, and the toppings go great on the thick bread used to serve the dog. The menu offers much more than snacks and dogs, so explore it and ask for suggestions if you want. The staff is kind and more than willing to help.

Pro Tip: Try a rum infused daiquiri from this place... it’s their specialty and they make them custom with over 30 different infusions.

After a lot of wandering we wanted a drink and somewhere to sit. My partner found The Box online so we went in search of it. We arrived around 5pm and it was quiet but we got ourselves a spot up at the bar.
We ordered hotdogs and nachos and loved both. So much effort went into the build of both with lovely guacamole and extras - delicious!
We had a couple of cocktails and then decided to try the rums they have on display which have been maturing with various flavours for months. All sorts of options from chilli to fruits and much more adventurous options too.
The staff were so lovely and friendly and happy to make recommendations. I feel like a lot of love has gone into this bar.
They have really quirky toilets which are worth a visit :-)

We just went in to grab a quick drink and we stayed more than an 1 hour having a joyful conversation with their staff. Definitely will come back when visiting Barcelona again. Try this bar if you are doing your own bar crawl.
