An excellent charcuterie and tapas bar in the heart of El Born district whose former owner realized, after running the bar for some time, that like a gynecologist, the sacrifice of working where others had fun was no life for him. Too much reading of ‘Fifty shades of grey’, perhaps. So he decided to sell and put up a hardware store for bondage games instead!
But the waiters, bartenders, butchers and regulars were not wiling to see how the atmosphere they had built would vanish and turn into the thorny subject of role games played within the confines of obsessive relationships. So some of them got together and bought the place from the BDSM renegade and managed to keep the soul of the bar within the satisfying boundaries of couples wishing to explore their imaginative limits by setting some sort of co-owned cooperative horizontal management economato.
This bar offers a variety of first quality tapas, salads, sausages and types of cheese, accompanied by a selection of Catalan wines. Its original flavors and friendly service would make the perfect sparking system for firing a long night together that would end up with breakfast on bed.
The 2 fromages salad is big enough to fulfill two empty stomachs, but you must taste the typical Catalan bread n’ tomato.
