‘Catalonia is not Spain’, you hear? The masterminds behind this Catalonian-themed bar clearly had a comprehensive checklist when it came to the details, from the separatist sentiments daubed (in English, curiously) on the wall along with a map of the Barcelona Metrô, to the vivid Gaudi-style mosiac madness, and even a menu written in Catalan.
It’s the menu that’s the surprising highlight here, with its selection of delicious tapas – go for the degustação and choose four types of tapas (R$29). The melted Brie with honey, and the mushroom and Serrano ham on toasted bread were highlights. Jugs of sangria grace most tables, with a plethora of fruits and flavours to choose from. Go in a group for happy hour, but move on before the unbearably loud house music kicks off around 10pm.
