Cocktail aficionados coming to Barcelona should make a beeline for this elegant cocteleria in the trendy and central El Borne district. Designed by a leading Catalan artist, Coppelia Club is a swish space dominated by jet black walls and leather couches, and punctuated with metallic fittings and touches of chrome and silver - such as the antique dressing table and mirror frames. But looks aside, the focus here is firmly on cocktails, with premium brands used to mix classic and original creations - such as the Vicky Cristina or Varsovia (...the latter is made from Vodka Premium U'luvka, Cointreau, ginger ale
kumquat and eucalyptus honey!). There's also a tempting range of gin and tonics to choose from, all the rage now in Barcelona. As you might expect from such an upscale venue, the service at Coppelia Club is first class and draws a sophisticated and well-dressed crowd. The music rises a notch at weekends to create a party vibe, and there's also a curtained VIP room at the front, styled like a library, if you want to reserve some private space.

found this place by chance and thought it's well worth recommending. Hot crowd, good stuff, great cocktails. Lost my phone but still managed to have a great night out

Ive been living in Barcelona for almost a year now and this is where I always take my friends when they come visit from the US or abroad. Stylish with great service and much more elegant people than the more student-style bars you normally get in Born
