Casa Vicens is the first house designed by Antoni Gaudí after graduating from the Escola Provincial d’Arquitectura de Barcelona 1878. He received his first major commission from Manuel Vicens i Montaner to build a summer estate in the then neighboring town of Gràcia in 1883 when he was 31 years old.
Established in 2006, A Casa Portuguesa has been in its new location in Gràcia since January of this year. Over the past 10 years it has presented the best of Portuguese gastronomy and culture to Barcelona.
Bloody Mary Cocktail Lounge is situated in Gràcia, tucked away in a side street but not far from the hussle and bustle of Avinguda Diagonal. Barman Alessandro formerly worked at the nearby Hotel Casa Fuster, and his charm is matched with a deep knowledge of cocktails.
La Pepita opened in 2010 in the lower part of the Gràcia neighborhood, led by Sergio Andreu and Sofía Boixet. The pair had recently returned from Paris, where Sergio had worked for a gourmet Spanish restaurant called Fogón.
