El Gresca Bar

CIRERA ESPINET | CRISTINA CIRERA, MARIONA ESPINET

Description Technical file

A casual air that is far removed from vintage aesthetics, alongside subtle colour usage and a harnessing of existing textures, provide this small bar and restaurant in Barcelona with an interesting atmosphere.

A bar serving wine and small dishes located right in the heart of the Eixample district.
Thanks to the plot’s interesting U-shaped arrangement, the bar and restaurant of Gresca have separate entrances (the tips of the ‘U’) and tube-shaped dining areas that connect at the back of the premises (the base of the ‘U’) at a very well-equipped kitchen that is visible to customers and serves both dining areas.
In front of the kitchen is a six-seat bar where gourmets can watch and enjoy the ‘show-cooking’ of Rafa and his team.
The bar area features a bar at the entrance and a few tables after that, creating a space that is ‘lived-in’ thanks to the proximity of the tables, an atmosphere that is commonly found in the French wine bars that inspired the development of this idea.
The colours green and red predominate and coexist with native materials such as San Vicenç stone, which is used for the bars and kitchen, and the original stone from the walls, which has been pealed and conserved to achieve a playful and intimate atmosphere, free from unnecessary refinements. For Rafa the important thing is the wine, alongside food that is simple and direct.
The entrance façade and the luminaires, designed specifically for the business, are a nod to the English green commonly found in pubs and pool halls.
There is a pending interior design project for the restaurant area that will be carried out in the future.
