Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Full of light, this space is like a caress on the back of the neck: daylight streams through the entrance window and bounces off the soaring ceiling and white walls. The wood in all the furniture and the floor fits like a puzzle piece with the Scandinavian touches of the interior design. Restored furniture, vintage chairs, retro tables, hanging light bulbs, exposed brick, cool music at a silky volume ... All the exquisite details have been painstakingly selected to offer the clientele a most pleasant experience that nourishes the soul. In other words: you'll need to be pried off your chair when it's time to go home. 

If the decor doesn't convince you because you're 50 years ahead of the rest of humanity, the food and drinks menus should do the trick (that's what you're there for, after all). Malasang takes vermouth seriously. A glass of Estrella Galicia beer on tap goes down like cold water on a hot day, the selection of wines and cavas by the glass is impeccable, and the light bites, such as anchovies and cockles, mean business. If you want a bit more in your belly, the tasty food mostly speaks Catalan (good sausages!) with an international accent. Be sure to ask for the gin and tonic of the night.
