Craft cocktails at bar Dr. Stravinsky, wont be a secret for much longer. The bar Dr. Stravinsky opened it’s doors back in the end of March this year on one the narrow streets of Born, more précis the street Mirallers 5, Barcelona.
I’m not sure, but is there a cocktail revival wave hitting Barcelona? It feels to me, that it is easier then ever to find delicately crafted cocktails in town that are well balanced and utterly delicious.
I remember walking by Dr. Stravinsky with my other half, saying; This is new! His response; No, it’s been there for ages! (Lesson learned, don’t be deceived by the old fashion look my dear).
Of course I had to go in, asked the bartender and he told me they had just be open for a week. I did an Instagram story and made a mental note to myself; Have to come back soon, because this place is cool.
Fast forward to a hot and sweaty July afternoon, a friend and I hit Dr. Stravinsky to try a couple of carefully crafted cocktails.
The space at Bar Dr Stravinsky is magical. It’s like walking in to a laboratory from an old movie, it’s dark, old fashion interior, old bottles and pottery dressing the walls. You might think that the bottles and pottery are just for show, but no. Barman Antonio Naranjo (that btw he speaks Norwegian, as he used to live in Oslo and work in the cocktail bar Himkok) told us they use them for fermentation, Kombucha and other inventions for the cocktails.
The guys behind Dr. Stravinsky are artisans, they want to have control over their cocktails and the ingredients used. They don’t use artificial drink mixers, they make their own tonic water, shrub, Kombucha and Kefir, which they flavour with natural ingredients.
***The explanation to “Craft cocktails” are cocktails made with ingredients “homemade” or costume-made specifically for the drink.
To understand what crafted cocktails are all about. I’m for sure going back, to tick of the rest of cocktails form the menu.
