Description: Marmalade, the new bigger sister of the now famous “Milk Bar & Bistro...
Marmalade, the new bigger sister of the now famous “Milk Bar & Bistro” would be better recognized by its nome de plume “Muebles Navarro”. This beautiful space is split into four distinct areas and nods its head to its 50 years as a furniture store, with beautiful sofas, Queen Anne style chairs, hand carved black matte billiard table, copper clad antique walls and of course the four meter tall chrome art deco bar back. This has given Marmalade a swinging 1950’s Havana/New York edge. Colour, material, and light draw you in and help you slip from the outside world. Our Head Chef has created a wonderful International menu combining flavours from his tenures in restaurants across Spain, Germany and America, using locally selected produce purchased daily from the Boqueria market . The menu changes seasonally. Dining is both casual and fun with many of the plates to be shared amongst our dining guests.Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday we have our famous American style brunch which has been embraced by both locals and tourists. Not to be missed. Marmalade has a significant cocktail list with a legendary cocktails from €5.00. Staff create fabulous original concoctions with great flavours. Marmalade has a large bar at which every kind of cocktail and delicious combination can be savoured.Laidback house and lounge music, easygoing friendly service and at times a humorous attention to detail all help to create the sense of a bar and restaurant that’s cool without ever trying too hard; instead there’s the sense of a single vision that has come together beautifully to create somewhere with real character. The element that makes Marmalade a place overflowing with personality is that all the items of décor have been specially designed and constructed for the local. Thanks to an imaginative effort to seek innovative materials, elements and colours, Marmalade has succeeded in bringing the past and future into the present. Marmalade has a warm, professional and cosmopolitan wait staff. Catalans and foreigners are waited upon attentively at the tables and even when the house is full there is always someone in attendance, since service is the philosophy underlying this bar and restaurant. The clientele pick up momentum as night descends. The staff also have a great knowledge of Barcelona and its hidden treasures, so be sure to ask what is on offer. It is truly a great meeting place to start an unforgettable vacation in a city that is second to none.Considered one of the most desirable event locations in Barcelona. Marmalade is a magnificent space that’s both grand (300 sqm & 4.5 meter tall ceilings) yet intimate with four separate seating areas. It also has outside dining with 32 seats and 8 tables. Providing an upscale backdrop for virtually all types of events. Conveniently located 5 minutes from Las Ramblas and with a privileged location above the top of La Rambla del Raval; this space can accommodate up to 225 guests for cocktails and small plates and 100 guests for seated dinner. Marmalades star has truly risen and it has become one of the neighborhoods’ hottest spots. It is a reference point for any visit to Barcelona. WOW!!!

I've been here often and I'm never disappointed. The food is great, as well as their staff and they make killer cocktails. Love the atmosphere here too and it's also great to go over on a quiet night and shot pool and have a couple of beers with friends

Stopped here for brunch and also returned for drinks on the weekend. We were staying at Barcelo Ravel hotel and just around the corner. Good food and just as nice atmosphere for brunch on weekend as it was for a bar on the night. Would recommend to friends as an easy going place for any time of day whilst in... More

My sister and I decided to try here as we had eaten in their sister restaurant Milk. We were not disappointed - it was lovely and the staff were so friendly . Nachos to die for and ribs so tender they fell off the bone - all washed down with a very pleasant bottle of Rioja. Excellent value for money... More

Visited Marmalade with (teenage) family of 5 just before Christmas. Staff extremely accommodating and pleasant. Great menu and the food (& cocktails) were delicious. Very reasonably priced and lovely setting. Very central, just a 5 minute walk off Las Ramblas. Worth visiting.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
