Fodor's Review

French poet and playwright Jean Genet was known to have been a regular here, and you can recognize scenes in his best-known work, A Thief's Journal. Marsella is pure history and decadence—the flaky walls, chipped-marble tables, and spidery chandeliers are as much a part of El Raval’s urban history as the ladies of the night that tread the streets outside. Although popular with tourists downing shot glasses of absinthe, Marsella’s bohemian credentials have never waivered.
