          Despite it's somewhat unimaginative name the place is nothing like it. Perfectly located in the El Born district close to the Arc de Triomf and all the bars, restaurants and high profiled shops. The interior design is (as many places in Barcelona) a bit overdone,...More

          The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
          the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
          this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
          enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
          places that live and breathe such exciting energy
          regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
          seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
          city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
