October has been a very eventful month here at For the Love of Gin HQ, beginning with a trip to Barcelona on the first day of the month. Part business, part leisure trip, we managed to pack a lot in during the four days that we were there.
Tucked away down one of the labyrinthine alleyways of the El Born district in the Old Town of Barcelona is a speakeasy bar: Dr Stravinsky. Run by co-owner and bar manager Antonio Naranjo it has been open for only 18 months but has already earned a reputation as a world-class cocktail bar. More botanical gin bar than a traditional cocktail bar Dr Stravinsky is well placed in the cultural El Born. There are bars, restaurants, jazz clubs, museums, flamenco and street entertainers aplenty to keep you occupied 24/7.
