El Nacional Country: Spain Lenght: 02’01’’ Director: Santi Valldepérez Producer: Marc Alado Copyright: Ocio Gastronómico S.L Locations: Barcelona PLAY Synopsis Director’s Bio El Nacional is the place where everything is possible. An emblematic place, full of history, that has borne witness to Barcelona’s industrial revolution since it was built in 1889. Initially, it housed a cafétheatre, a fabric dye factory, a car dealer’s shop before the Civil War... and finally a garage. El Nacional represents an innovative concept that will mark a turning point in culinary trends. 4 areas, 4 bars and a thousand ways to feed the soul. That is El Nacional. A meat restaurant, a fish restaurant, a tapas and rice restaurant and a fast deli restaurant. Four distinct areas, as well as 4 bars specialised in: beer, wine, cava and cocktails, making El Nacional Barcelona’s restaurant of the moment, a place to immerse oneself in local life in the city. A multi-zone culinary establishment, where each of the sections has its own unique characteristics, creating the sensation that there are different experiences to be had within the same restaurant. The establishment is located on Passeig de Gràcia and has a surface area of 2,600 m2 with a capacity for more than 700 diners. Large windows and metal pillars give the place a unique charm that is very difficult to put into words. You will have to come and see it for yourself.
