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.
Described as 'pan Meditteranean' Gin Mare gathers its key botanicals from across the sea. Quite apt as the name 'mar' means the sea and interestingly also 'maternal'.
