The opening of Artte is a much-needed breath of fresh air because places like this in Barcelona are scarce. Artte is a bistrot but also a versatile space with a wide cultural offer, from painting to multimedia and classic art to live music, poetry, silences, jazz, soul, classic or lyrical music performances or dance and mini-theatre events. Artte is a place made with good taste and delicacy by a family of art and culture lovers that, luckily, invested in this enormous, high-ceilinged space with an industrial air. Designed by the famous Lázaro-Rosa Violán studio, the space has open spaces with the right amount of decoration.

Crossing the large entrance door, we find a beautiful collection of minimal hand-made posters with warm colours. The first large space is devoted to tea. It includes a store to purchase the tea they made in-house, an innovation lab and a great variety of products and accessories around tea. Their delicate treatment of water is complemented by an array of tea-loving utensils. An ideal space to spend a nice and relaxing time with friends!

The second area is a squared space built on several white columns with back details presided over by an elegant bar. Images of landscapes and cities are screened on the walls, taking you straight there. It’s true that sometimes these projections overshadow the art hanging on the walls, something artists wouldn’t surely approve of. Other than that, the decoration and the general texture the place acquires with these projections are very unique.

In this area there is a small stage for live performances, from classic music to theatre to black music. Lots of black music!

The food, on the other hand, is just right. An acceptable value for money considering how wonderful the place is and the good music played. The hamburger is good and there are succulent options for vegetarians, for example seitan stew, as well as cheese and ham boards, salads and creams. The wine list is short but of good quality, and although the beer offer could be wider, their selection is nice.
