The cocktail bar, occupying one side of the space, serves classic and creative cocktails complimenting the gastronomic offering here. The dining area features stencilled wall mural created by well know Barcelona based illustrator, Joan Tarragó, filled with symbolism that perfectly capture the youthful verve and minimalist aesthetic of Nobuko.
