The Bar

“We restored the brick walls and the double-pointed arch typical in traditional Catalan architecture and used items we were given by Sr. Antonio de l‘Aguelo, the owner of a famous tavern on Carrer Avingnó, and Sr. Ramón, the previous tenant and a well-known figure in the neighborhood. We benefited from both gentlemen’s wisdom and knowledge about Poble Sec and the art of eating tapas, their pleasant conversation and their kind gifts of valuable articles such as the solid wooden bar, the big marble sink, the wine tongs, the jugs and the old sign from the toy and firework shop that was there before. All these artifacts helped us to create an authentic traditional atmosphere in a pleasant and charming place.”
