Historic bars of Barcelona and interior design (Vol. I 1786-1897)
This route through the interior design in Barcelona will be done through the bars, those public spaces that remain in the collective imagination and, after all, are those that, when we look at the past, we all remember.
These lines imply on our part a thank you to the references of interior design in Barcelona and a tribute to the environments and walls of these mythical locals, leaving aside their culinary wonders, which we do not touch or know how to value.
We will review in this first volume, the first five places where we want to focus our attention. It all starts over 200 years ago.
Interior Design, bars and restaurants
When we go to a restaurant or bar to enjoy its offer, few of us think about the interior design. However, becoming aware of is not an element that defines the culture of the place, often very thoughtful and studied in detail. However, when we come across the decoration of old bars, something goes on in the diners, they make them carefully observe the walls and finishes of their interiors.
The design bars in Barcelona have always been present, adapting to all times and embracing the decorative trends of each time, their durability over time makes us can compare styles with contemporaries. That is why the decoration of old bars, in our opinion, should be maintained at all costs, provided if it’s safe and viable.
So in a way, this article is a capital and bold ode to the historic bars in Barcelona.
