Ocaña is located in Plaza Real, one of the most charismatic places in Barcelona. The meeting point for bohemians and artists, it is always full of tourists and visitors. The square represents Barcelona’s life in his purest form from the early morning hours until the night. Ocaña adds to this mythical environment, bringing new energy and helping to restore the magic atmosphere of the past decade.
The opening of “Vivancos” in 1850, the first brewery in the city, was an important date in the square. This event marked the way for a lot of bars, restaurants, music halls and discos in the following 150 years. However, in 1880 the Square entered into a terrible decline, because most of its people moved to the upper side.
Its modernization began in the early 80s at the hands of the architects Correa and Milá. In the decade of the 90s and 00s, bars, restaurants and nightclubs located in Plaza Real attracted a lot of visitors. Nowadays, it is one of Barcelona’s most visited places, both by tourists and locals, due to its variety of entertainment offers.
