Photos: Bar Velódromo re-opening
The emblematic bar has been restored to its original glory by Moritz. The original art deco feel has been revived, maintaining many of the original design elements, like the formica-plated steel bar, the mahogany staircase and, crucially to many, the pool table.
Carles Abellán, the new chef, Jordi Hereu, the mayor, and Albert Castellón, director of Moritz, re-opened the legendary place in front of an invited audience, of which many appeared to be regulars from the early stages of the bar that opened for the first time back in 1933.
Bar Velódromo opens to the public on July 6.
