Savour au­then­tic Cata­lan flavours at a wine bar that cap­tures the free-wheel­ing spirit of Barcelona

0wned and op­er­ated by the Bistrono­mia Group, BCN by Ram­bla is likened to a re­turn trip to Barcelona. Sergi Ros­toll, Uri Singla, and Dani Aliaga all have fond mem­o­ries of the city; if Ram­bla is a trib­ute to its touristy spirit, then BCN is a trib­ute to its not-so-hid­den gems and bestkept neigh­bour­hood se­crets. “BCN is where you would go to un­wind with great food and a glass of wine,” says Aliaga.

BCN’s big­gest come-on is its large se­lec­tion of wines. A tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled wine cel­lar on the sec­ond floor houses around 50 vari­ants, each one a favourite of the own­ers. Re­spon­si­ble for this is an in-house som­me­lier, who goes around to make rec­om­men­da­tions—though guests are more than wel­come to choose their own. Pair your choice of drink with one of the of­fer­ings on BCN’s menu, which run the gamut from ta­pas to char­coal oven rice dishes.
