The owners of La Confiteria, El Paradiso and other stellar BCN bars took over this spot, where once stood the legendary Bar Nus. They've swapped beers for shakers and made this a type of alchemist's den where they distill many of the spirits used in their cocktails. The drinks menu is the result of the imagination of cocktail expert Antonio Naranjo: the Camp Nou, made with a syrup of dill, thyme and coriander, house-distilled gin, lime and camomile, has a freshness and flavour like nothing you've ever tried; the Suculent, with tequila and mezcal infused with coriander, and a syrup of lime and peppers, is a knockout.
