The Raval district has always been one of the most scoundrel and even controversial places in Barcelona. Formerly (during the 50s, 60s and 70s) it was informally known as Chinatown. The Raval district has always been known for its nightlife of music clubs, cabarets and refuge for inhabitants with few resources or immigrants recently arrived in the city. Recently the Raval has undergone important changes that introduce it into the culture and life of the city of Barcelona, in an effort on the part of the city council and much of the neighbors so that the Raval ceases to be a marginal neighborhood and becomes a neuralgic point at the level of leisure and new trends in the city of Barcelona. An example of this has been, in recent years, the opening of several faculties of the University of Barcelona in the neighbourhood (Philosophy, History…), the transfer of the headquarters of the CCCB to the centre of the neighbourhood and the opening of the new headquarters of the Filmoteca de Catalunya a few metres from the Rambla del Raval. From National Burger Bar we recommend that you visit the Raval and get impregnated with its mixture of culture, leisure, history and colour given to it by the neighbours of different origins who live there.
