Rooftop Smokehouse are restless. The latest invention of Buster Turnofski and his team –the absolute kings of pop ups- recently inaugurated a project consisting in gathering together creative projects from different background to cook in Paradiso, their first sedentary restaurant.

Located in the Born, these experts in smoked food opened a sandwich bar with a short and effective menu which hides a few surprises.

Let’s start with the most obvious: what does this 15m2 place decorated with white bricks and large glass windows serve?

Among their specialties are pastrami sandwich, a hit in New York that has finally arrived to this side of the Atlantic; sandwich with traditionally crafted smoked cheese and candied shallot or smoked mackerel on a very delicious bread. The average prize is €7. Wash them down with craft beer and wines, as well as homemade soft drinks, so don’t expect to be served Coca-Cola or Pepsi.

It is not by chance that Paradiso serves sandwiches until 3am. When opening the door of the fridge located on the left of the bar, there appears one of the Borne’s best-kept secrets, a cocktail bar. The wood-paneled walls and ceilings in the sandwich bar become walls papered with tropical palm trees to server cocktails. The list combines both classic and signature cocktails. Giacomo Gianotti, Spain’s Best Cocktail Maker in 2014, is responsible for a creative and visually attractive list.


If you’re still reading, you deserve to know the last of Paradise’s secrets only a few people know. The cocktail bar hides a more clandestine area called Macallan Room for those who reserve it in advance.
