With a long and active façade facing the street, Café Got is a spot where the city of Barcelona and Hotel Kimpton Vividora come together, inviting the community in.

The designers, El Equipo Creativo, were inspired by Ciutat Vella, and more specifically the Gothic Quarter and its street atmosphere, where little narrow streets lead you to unexpected plazas, patios, and entrances to residential buildings and stone, greenery and water are material essentials. It was decided to introduce these same elements to the design of the bar.

A double-height space with a cascade of glass lamps connects with the lobby area on the first level bringing a fresh and watery effect to the project. On the lower level, a comfortable lounge sitting-area, close to the façade and visible from the street, invites guests and locals to enter and relax.

Green custom-designed ceramic tiles with geometric patterns, inspired by Barcelona’s broad ceramic craftsmanship tradition, are applied to walls and dividers, which, together with natural plants, bring the green touch to space. Patterns jump to other surfaces, as the golden dividers and ceiling elements.

A bar element made with stone block sits at the back. This element, along with terracotta carpets and walls with a reddish wooden finish gives a warm contrast against the travertine floors.

Different and carefully selected pieces of furniture, with an emphasis on local brands and designers, give it a casual, inviting atmosphere with a local flair.
