Like the rest of Spain the economic crisis has hit Barcelona hard. One particular establishment that has been hit by the economic situation in the country is “Mar de Cava”. Unfortunately they finally made the decision to close the doors on their beautiful restaurant in order to ensure that their beautiful store could remain open. The store is a beautiful space to be found in Passeig de Gracia close to Eixample Manor Estate.
The store you now see was the personal project of Mar and revolves around the two great passions in his life and interior design. This is why you will find the interior so interesting to explore. Plus you will find that the staff extremely helpful and courteous.
This is a very special store as it helps to show that Barcelona the capital of Catalan is moving on despite all the difficulties being faced at this time. Although the restaurant may now be closed they still allow the space to be rented for special occasions.
However it is the store that most people like to visit and is considered to be one of the best in the entire city. Like me once you enter through the doors you are going to have trouble finding words that easily describe what is a very striking and innovative space. All you can do is enjoy what you see and tell others to visit for themselves.
Once you enter “Mar de Cava” store you will find the old bar that people would meet at before you then move further into the store. As you wander around the store you will see a wonderful selection of furniture and craft items, many of which have been designed and created by local businesses and artists. For anyone who is thinking of renovating their home and want something unique to place in a particular room then a visit to this store is a must.
Now the store is also being used as an exhibition centre and in various showrooms you will often come across some quite interesting acts. The showrooms you may especially find of interest when you visit are the artisan and cultural ones. A quick visit to the Mar de Cava website will offer you the chance to see exactly what is on offer.
