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

The menu features traditional dishes updated with fresh, local produce of the best possible quality. The food has a classical foundation, with nods to international cuisine and loads of flavour. A warm, comfortable, timeless space with a simple elegance that conveys a much-needed calmness in the heart of the city. At CityBar you'll find the best atmosphere in the city, day or night, and extremely creative cocktails, including the "Mosco y Lola" (with vodka, black pepper and Earl Grey tea), as well as old favourites like the "Old Fashioned" and the "Whisky Sour" A venue in the heart of the city where you can also hold private events, with optional DJ and a wide selection of set menus for groups.
