Gastronomy at the peak of its art
It is into the world of Picasso’s second wife that the Jacqueline restaurant takes its customers. The decor is inspired by art nouveau and the cocktail menu, portraits of the woman who was called Jacqueline. We therefore gladly immerse ourselves in a timeless world, located a stone’s throw from Passeig de Gràcia. Chic obliges. The waiters are dressed to the nines, with a colored jacket to give the little twist of the 50s.
And on the plate, it’s a whole palette that parades from the appetizer through fish, meat and dessert. At Jacqueline, everything is art. From the walls to the taste buds. And as art comes into its own, a dinner club room offers late-night music in the basement. Next year, a third room will open with a champagne bar and flower-based cocktails. Welcome to the world of the muse of the Spanish cubist painter.
Dates and times : Wednesday to Sunday, from 7:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.
Price : around €60 for the menu, €70 with drinks
