Sophisticated cocktail bar and nightclub
Leading the charge in Barcelona’s latest cocktail revolution, Slow Cocktails & Boîte is part of a new generation of bars that are sexing up the mixed drink and combining classic elegance with modern trends.
Newly promoted head bartender Fran Mekk – a rising star and enfant terrible amongst Barcelona’s mixologists – is the curator of Slow’s ‘Greatest Hits’ a menu of deliciously creative concoctions that are sure to beguile any serious imbiber. Highlights include the Spiced Margarita, made from rested tequila with a hint of lime and chilli, La Font Magica – a potent mix of amaretto and absinth that filters down from decanter to glass (in a homage to both Barcelona’s Magic Fountain and long traditional of drinking absinth!), and the Costa Brava, a whimsical creation of gin, bitters, herbs and fruits served in a conical sea shell.
With its low lights, vintage decor and first class service, Slow’s relaxed bar area evokes the perfect atmosphere for enjoying any of the above in good company.
Upstairs however you’ll find a different vibe. Slow is the only dedicated cocktail bar in Barcelona to combine a lounge area with a nightclub that stages live music and DJs. An esoteric selection of bands plays every Friday and Saturday at 21:30, whilst later at night you can dance to pop, indie, electro and r’n’b played on their Adagio Pro and Martin Audio soundsystem, as well as revel in a spectacular LED light show.
Also upstairs you’ll find the secluded Candy Box room, where decadent murals and crimson horse leather grace the walls and a VIP atmosphere prevails: an excellent space for private events if you’re coming to Barcelona for a special occasion.
