Lupita del Raval (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This place is closed ‘The small business must be understood in context, we have to interact with our environment to improve what we have in common: we have to network,’ says Sergi Coloma, a partner of Lupita – the old SF bar – along with Jordina (of Rouge and the now-defunct Lempika) and Gemma.
This collaborative spirit is what makes businesses grow, and Coloma understands that. For example, on Sunday mornings Victor is in charge of the bar – and he’s from the shop opposite, which by the way, serves up good pintxos.
Coloma and his crew are also part of La Verde, a co-op / centre of shopping and services that provides for Las Fernández, La Casa de la Pradera, el Libélula ... Coloma is one of those people who always has a thousand projects on the go: several years ago he opened the salon Pódame in C/Cera, and not even five months ago he launched Lupita, and just after, another hairdresser’s in C/Robadors. ‘We like the eclectic Raval, the streets full of variety and spontaneity,’ he says.
Coloma and company hope that Lupita and its little terrace will become a meeting place for young people where Thursdays feature live flamenco, Fridays will be queer night – with DJ Rebote and Borja Pony and a trashy-with-heels clientele – Saturdays a bit more rock ’n’ roll, and Sundays are saved for vermouth – and if you get hungry, you can gobble down a meatball sandwich that will leave you full and happy. Having an evening beer in the bar is a little everyday luxury.
