Legend has it that more than a few creative ideas, political plots, and even civil war strategies were hatched here. If there is such a thing as a Barcelona institution, Bar Velódromo is one. After nearly a decade with the shutters down, the place has been restored to its original glory.
The original art deco feel has been revived, maintaining many of the original design elements, like the formica-plated steel bar, the mahogany staircase and, crucial to many, the pool table.
Reopened with super chef Carles Abellán overseeing the kitchen, it's now in the reins of Jordi Vilà from the Michelin-starred Alkimia. Open from early morning till late, pop in at any time of the day and order a few tapas and classic Catalan bistro dishes to sate your hunger.
