Since opening in March 2005, Milk has created a truly unique style. Dangerously comfortable booths, sexy cartoon art and hand-crafted wallpaper all contribute towards a decadent ambiance. The evening menu embraces culinary cultures from all over the world. Weekend brunch is excellent, not only providing delicious plates such as traditional homecooked Irish breakfeast or eggs benedict but also a selection of complimentary English, Irish and Spanish newspapers. Milk has a good location nestled in the narrow streets of the old Barri Gothic, and a soundtrack of rare and funky tunes to set the mood for a great night out. And their cocktails are a treat for selective and discerning tastebuds. The Milk Bar & Bistro offers a modern and elegant option for the ever livelier nights of Barcelona's old town. As their website describes: "Plush sofas, flirtatious pillows, gilded lacy red picture frames, antique chandeliers and incredible wallpaper designed by 50's designer Florence Broadhurst." The menu changes seasonally, and popular dishes include the "Milk hamburger" topped with the house sweet onion relish, served with wedges and tonkatsu sauce, "The Ultimate Caesar Salad" which has their homemade dressing, chapata croutons, smoked bacon, parmesan cheese and topped with a warm poached egg and of course the ever popular "Seafood Jumbalaya." Milk has a famous cocktail list with a legendary Happy Hour for selected cocktails between 7pm and 9pm daily. All-in-all a premium cocktail bar and definitely worth hunting out amongst the narrow catacomb streets of the old Barri Gothic.

Update 2018 - Along with their sister bar Marmalade, the Milk Bar & Bistro is highly recommended if you're in the Gotico area, either during the day for brunch or later for cocktails. Don't be surprised to see queues if you turn up at the most popular times.
