After being embraced by the families of Brookline, Barcelona is thrilled to bring the best of Spanish food, culture, and style to the historic streets of Boston's South End. This neighborhood is home to independent retail shops, an active artistic community, and some of the city's most progressive eateries. Barcelona is just steps away from charming residential condos and the lush community gardens of Berkeley Street. The restaurant's design features a dramatic wood slat bar ceiling and rich walnut flooring. Rustic plaster covers the walls and custom-built organic-shaped light fixtures illuminate the dining space. The mid-century modern furnishings are the perfect representation of Barcelona's contemporary and bold aesthetic.
