To have available 150m2 divided in two floors and a space with a great architectonic value, where without a doubt a great advantage for the architecture studio and professional interior designers at the time to approach the interior design project.

Under the high ceiling domed roof, you can see the taste for vintage elements and the recuperated decorative belongings coexist with others more contemporary or supercool design, like the illumination elements, made mostly of hanging lamps.


The 18 meters long communal table, the naked walls and assorted chairs bet on an informal aesthetic but cosy atmosphere for the public that frequent the place, linked to the ¨Table sharing trend¨. in addition the restaurant has rectangle tables and confortable seating booths.
