Drunch Anyone?

drunchOver the last few years, the brunch culture has taken the city’s bars and restaurants by storm. And, true to European form, it has transformed into a much lengthier and boozier social occasion this side of the Atlantic.

The term “brunch” actually originates from the British upper-classes, whose staff would take Sunday off, leaving a spread of breakfastlunch items prepared in advance to avoid the family going hungry. Living in Barcelona, the concept of a drunk-lunch may not be so foreign to your weekend plans. With an abundance of trendy new eateries across the city now offering all-day brunch menus, some boasting bottomless cocktails and various fruit juices laced with cava, “drunch” is the new acceptable face of daytime drinking. We’ve put together some of our top places where you can indulge in the best and most fashionable drunches in town.


TIMELINE BAR

Timeline pays close attention to detail. From the random

wall-mounted artefacts to the antique book-bound

menus, this tiny (booking essential) yet worthy contender

of a Sunday hotspot offers a brunch menu that ranges

from baked bean tapas to all-you-can-drink Bloody

Marys and Bucks Fizz. Sundays will never be dull again.

MEATPACKING BISTRO

meatpacking-bistro-5This little piece of New York in Barcelona offers various

brunch menus from classic American-style pancakes

to their new “Oxford Brunch”. They also serve a killer

Bloody Mary which can be enjoyed inside the warm and

inviting cafe-restaurant, or out on the terrace. Claudia

Schiffer has even been spotted hanging out here.

MARMALADE

This is a brunch classic in the Raval. Offering a large

variety of dishes (no set menu), the portions are

generous and indeed very tasty. Their cocktail menu

is extensive yet somewhat pricey for the area. The

hamburgers are a must-try.
