_EAT: Bestiari

9 Mar

Walk into Bestiari on any given night  and you will unexpectedly find a restaurant where diners eat under intimate pools of light focused precisely on each table. More Sarria than Born, this is a restaurant that is free from the usual three  ring circus that characterizes most restaurants in the surrounding streets.

Steps away from the Mercat del Born, Bestiari sits elegantly on the corner of  the neighbourhood’s most important culinary avenue C/Comerc.

With a menu as international as the clientele, Bestiari stands out due to its simple yet chic interior and superb level of service, a rarity in Barcelona bustling restaurant scene.

With a varied menu featuring: foie , octopus carpaccio, rissotos and creative dishes that present a modern take on both meat & fish; Bestiari has quietly become an excellent choice when the need to impress arrises.

The dessert menu,  includes a mouth-watering selection of  citrus based sweets including, an  amaretto infused Tiramisu which is bound to inspire a battle of spoons for the last scoop.

MUTT Barcelona- Opens Its Doors

29 Dec

Opened just a few weeks ago, MUTT has already become Barcelona’s premier social network. A magnet for the city’s graphic designers, photographers and fashion junkies- this white temple of art and fashion is the perfect place to find rare books and meet new people.

 

Located in the Borne on C/Comerc, Mutt  has moved into the old iguapop space, and has already won over Barcelona’s most colorful locals, with an amazing opening party packed wall to wall with MUTTERS (The United Association Of People Who Love Mutt)

 It seems like the owners have found the perfect balance between art and design. Mutt  has  managed to open a store in  Barcelona which not only blends perfectly with the neighborhood but also serves as an art gallery  which supports  local artists while providing tables filled with books covering  the best in global design and limited edition runs. From international fashion magazines to independent Fanzines, Mutt has everything you will not find at FNAC which makes MUTT the number one places to go when looking for some inspiration.

LE LOOK- Barcelona’s Street Fashion Hunters

“THE STREET IS DANGEROUSLY CREATIVE”                                                                                             -Christian Lacroix 

         While others prefer the high-profile title of “Fashion Cities” such as Milan, Paris and London. Le Look keeps their eyes on the plazas, alleys and bars of Barcelona’s 5 different barrios which make up the mix and match fabric of the city’s  street fashion scene. LE LOOK’s cameras capture hunt down real people- nonconformists that happily mix H&M with Dior and can rock Alexander McQueen with the same ease of toting a 2 euro purse from one of the many vintage stores on Calle Carme. 

 This past Thursday Le Look invaded Vintage Bar in the Borne, and turned the space into it’s very own urban fashion incubator.  The venue which is a great space for parties is divided into several rooms and gives the feeling of stepping into a posh living room rather than a cramped Barcelona bar. Hosted by LELOOK and the folks at Fashionfreax  this event was the launch party for the latest collection of fashion designer and muse  ANNA K.   Normally a party like this would be filled with pretentious fashionistas but the party was incredibly laid back with more people talking face to face rather than into their cell phones.** Special Thanks to our man Martin Hesbert, for  documenting  the night’s vibe.

  DJ Mustache had the sounds in check while VJ Sacha provided the eye candy in the background.However, the cameras were turned on the crowds at this particular party- the dress code on the invite was in bold. The simple instructions printed in 24 font EXTRAVA K.

 

LE LOOK staffers  mingled around the room, picking out the most interesting looks and inviting the guests to strike a pose in front of their impromptu photo studio in the bars foyer.  At midnight, those looks that had managed to raise eyebrows (I am talking about you bearded man in a blue dress)  were invited to hit the catwalk and strut their lelook for cava sipping crowds.  

Barcelona’s  cool hunters, fashion editors, and stylist were out supporting LE LOOK  in full force. 

LE LOOK’s last event back in April made headlines and this seasons party was no different.  Michael Mueller from Barcelona’s MINIGUIDE* , summed it up best… ” It’s nice to see Barcelona finally coming into its own and setting trends rather than following them “.
