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!!!

We stumbled into Marmalade after arriving late in Barcelona looking for something to eat, and we lucked out! The Sangria was awesome, and so was my burger! We even made it a point to return for brunch before we left- the mimosas were great too!

If you are in Barcelona, this restaurant is a MUST! For 2 cocktails, soft drinks, large portion of chicken wings and 2 mains our total was less than 40 Euro - which is great value for the portion size and quality of our meals. When the restaurant claims to have the best chicken wings, believe them...and try them! Service was... More

After visiting Milk in Barcelona in 2013 I was compiling a list of places to go for my 2015 visit and Marmalade came up as a suggestion. It was literally around the corner from our apartment - massive bonus! We went for a fry up and Bloody Mary's one morning, one evening for dinner (which was absolutely delicious with generous...

I have visited this place twice with friends. Although the place is beautiful, the girl responsible for seating people is impolite, unwilling to help. The first time she insisted that there was no place for 2 for a drink and we had to point a place before she unwiillingly said ok. The second time she impolitely said there was no... More

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.
