Barcelona constantly reinvents itself, embracing the new while never forgetting its rich history. From historic dance halls to museums, hotels, and restaurants that blend tradition and modernity, the city is a living testament to how the old and the new can coexist.

Barcelona's ability to seamlessly move between the past, present, and future is fascinating. Its streets have witnessed generations, revolutions, and rebirths, and the city has witnessed conquests and liberations, periods of splendor and moments of darkness. However, it has always found a way to reinvent itself, to flourish with a new vitality that attracts both its inhabitants and millions of visitors from around the world.


It's this ability of Barcelona to transform without losing its essence that truly makes it special. Old buildings are not demolished to make way for the new; instead, they are integrated, renewed, and reinterpreted. In this melting pot of eras and styles, every corner of the city has a story to tell, and each of these corners has witnessed a transformation that honors its past while looking towards the future.


Today, we delve into some of the city's legendary establishments that have been reborn, combining their rich history with innovative proposals that invite us to rediscover them. These spaces are living examples of how Barcelona achieves harmony between the old and the new, between tradition and modernity. This duality is the best of its personality.



La Paloma: The jewel of el Raval shines again

The historic dance hall La Paloma, located on Calle del Tigre in the Raval, is a perfect example of how the old can be reborn with new splendor. After sixteen years of litigation and closures ordered by the Barcelona City Council, La Paloma finally reopened its doors recently. This venue, known for its endless parties and nights, also surprises with its impressive architecture and ornamentation. Now its walls are once again witness to the best parties in the city, from electronic nights to its classic ballroom dances that have just reappeared in its programming.



El Nacional: A culinary journey in a Modernist space

Another iconic spot that has found new life is El Nacional. This gastronomic space, located on Passeig de Gràcia, houses four restaurants and four bars under a modernist roof. Before becoming what it is today, this building has been a theater, a factory, and a parking lot. With a spacious area of 3000 square meters, El Nacional offers a culinary experience perfect for visitors, blending its rich history with a delicious gastronomic offering. The original cover of the leather factory is preserved, adding a layer of history to a cutting-edge space.



Moco Museum: Contemporary art in a historic palace

The Moco Museum, bringing the spirit of its namesake in Amsterdam to Barcelona, ​​has settled in the Cervelló Palace, a gem from the 16th century on Calle Montcada. This palace, which was the residence of the noble Cervelló family until the 18th century, combines styles spanning centuries of history. From its Gothic facade to its Renaissance details, the Cervelló Palace is a testament to the city's aristocratic past. Today, the Moco Museum transforms this space into a center of contemporary art with a cutting-edge collection and the mission of making art accessible to all. You'll be surprised by what you'll find inside. You don't expect it. Things about Barcelona's duality.



La Pubilla: Tradition and quality in every dish

Located in a century-old venue in the heart of the Gràcia neighborhood, La Pubilla offers an unmatched value for money. With an innovative return to traditional Catalan cuisine, it delights its customers with offal dishes, legumes, and classic slow-cooked cuisine. It's the perfect place to discover that Catalan tradition known as "esmorzars de forquilla" (fork breakfasts). Its lunch menu is especially popular, attracting a loyal local clientele who appreciate both the quality of the product and the care in its preparation.



Colmado Wilmot: A culinary journey through time

Colmado Wilmot, the new proposal from Eugeni de Diego and Ana Alvarado, former members of el Bulli, is a tribute to spoon dishes and traditional stews. This venue, half store, half restaurant, like the grocery stores of yore, offers a unique experience that combines the best of both worlds. With a small and cozy dining room, Wilmot creates an intimate atmosphere where diners feel at home. The selected wine cellar and the well-chilled beers complement a culinary offering that stands out for its authenticity and flavor.



Hotel Regina and La Esquina: Redefining hospitality

In this context, we cannot fail to mention the new image of Hotel Regina, which has been part of Barcelona's historical fabric for over a century. Recently, we have renovated our image and reinvented the experience for our guests. With the introduction of Gina's, the new restaurant, and a complete remodeling, we have achieved a contemporary and timeless design that invites visitors to immerse themselves in an environment of luxury and comfort, without forgetting the rich history of the building.


Next to Hotel Regina, La Esquina continues with this unique proposal of mixing the old with the new through a new vision of Catalan tapas. The design is modern and welcoming, but something takes us back to the taverns of old: the essence. This typical (but not typical at all) bar offers a culinary experience that goes beyond the traditional. It's a meeting place for locals and visitors, eager to explore the flavors of Catalonia in an environment as authentic as it is current.
