Café Got

Barcelona, Spain

Kimpton Vividora Hotel, a new hotel in the Old City of Barcelona offers a big food & beverage variety. Designed by El Equipo Creativo, this unique and different atmosphere invites everyone to come in, relax, and enjoy the various areas of the hotel, such as the Cafe Got.

Cafe Got is a spot where the city of Barcelona and the Hotel Kimpton Vividora come together: an active space with a long façade facing the street which invites guests and locals to enter and interact. The designers soon understood that the space of the bar–located in the lower level of Hotel Kimpton Vividora, and with a long façade facing the street– should be part of the neighborhood, acting as a connection between the city and the Hotel.

Ciutat Vella, and more specifically the Gothic Quarter and its street atmosphere, became one of the main inspirations for the design, where little narrow streets lead you to unexpected plazas, patios, and entrances to residential buildings. Stone, greenery, and water are the essential ingredients of these fresh oases in the city and it was decided to introduce these same ingredients in 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.

As a discreet protagonist, the bar element sits at the back, like an elegant bright stone block in contrast with the travertine floors. Terracotta carpets and walls together with reddish wooden finishes give the warm contrast.

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.
