In the spring of 2005, Rebecca and I arrived from San Francisco, California to bring our vision of what we thought would be the perfect bar/restaurant for us. A place where we would hang out… Hence the birth of “Milk Bar & Bistro”.
Its healthy atmosphere is in keeping with the spaces chequered past. It was once a famous absinthe bar with tarot cards being read, where the less desirable of Barcelona’s nights would once gather.
The goal was to serve a family style menu of tasty, bold flavoured foods with global influence in a fun and lively setting that makes our guests feel at home from the moment they walk in the door. Have we achieved this? From all the wonderful reviews over the years we think so but it is always a work in progress and hospitality is a passion that never sleeps.
The menus for day and night are seasonal and have a little something for everyone. We offer locally sourced produce, craft beers and a wide array of cocktails for all tastes. The concept of Brunch or Breakfast was late coming to Barcelona. We pioneered the idea here at Milk which was a tough sell at the beginning. However, it has been embraced by one and all and is wildly popular which is why we do it 7 days a week from 9am to 4.30pm. If you can’t have brunch with us then the next best brunch experience is brunch in the park with friends and family. We do brunch to go! Everything from Crab Benedict with its luxurious hollandaise sauce to our famous ramen noodle burger and let’s not forget the fabulous bloody mary´s and mimosas to the mojitos and caipirinhas.
Dinner is served every evening from 7.00 pm to 12.00 am. Get in early. The menu delivers a contrast of flavours and ingredients that give our favourites from many years of travelling, an innovative twist. We cover all the palates from vegetarian and vegan to all the rest of you.
Our Team have a great knowledge of Barcelona and its hidden treasures, so be sure to ask what is on offer. Rebecca and I hope that you all find Milk a great meeting place to start an unforgettable vacation in this incredible city.
From Barcelona with Love,
Rebecca and Paul ❤
