We Pop! presents an alternative aperitif consisting of a combination of Bombas, Lagartos y Cohetes together with a choice of vodka based cocktails including Bloody Mary, Vodka Gimlet and Martini Mango. Kike Martínez, founder of  Bombas, Lagartos y Cohetes de Vallekas joins forces with mixologist Joao Eusebio from Magatzem Escolà. We Pop! is open from 6PM daily till late for four days only from today Jan 29th till Saturday Feb 1st .

Coinciding with the 080 Fashion Week taking place at the Espai Born all eyes are focused on this neighbourhood right now. So customers should be advised to get there early. The banderillas can be bought individually or alternatively We Pop! Offers three formulas which can be bought online (which also guarantees a table), individually, for two or groups. Magatzem Escolà is an off-licence shop dedicated to the sale and promotion of wines, liquors and spirits aiming to act as a link between named brands and the professionals working in the hospitality sector. The basement area has been especially decorated for the We Pop! event using Santa & Cole lighting installations with table seating and a stand-up area.
