Vegan food until late and eco beers
From the moment the bell tinkles announcing your arrival at this bar/restaurant in El Born, it’s clear you’ve entered somewhere a little different. A huge clockwork cat’s face has been constructed on one wall from a couple of scratched spherical metallic lamp-stands (eyes) and sticky black tape (whiskers), whilst cheap plastic felines from China wave their paws at you, and a collection of apparently random but Cat-based exhibits – including a motorbike (DuCATi), some plant life, several sketches and Cat’s graduation photo (the owner’s daughter, after whom the venue is named) embellish the rest of the bar.
It’s not only the decor that’s rare. In a meat-addicted city, Cat Bar was Barcelona’s first ever vegan restaurant and today is still one of it’s finest. On the menu you’ll find delicious vegan tortillas and quiche, burgers and sausages, as well as all-day breakfasts (with thick English chips) and homemade cakes, bread and smoothies – all served until closing time. You can even order several different types of artisan beer on tap, and many more via the bottle, to go with or without your meal.
