Craving Barcelona: meet Pedro at INSOLENT

Summer’s coming in Barcelona and we’re hungry for sun, sips, and the best of the city’s bites. To help us explore the gastro scene, we’ve enlisted head bartender and esteemed good timer Pedro of INSOLENT at Sonder La Casa del Sol

A Madrileño who arrived in Barcelona at the age of eighteen, Pedro took off for adventure after his studies. Working in some of the top bars and hotels in Tenerife and Mallorca, he eventually found his way back to the city he loves and to the wells of INSOLENT. A man of balance – when he’s not eating and drinking his way through the barrios, you can find him exploring the mountains outside the city. Read on for Pedro’s hot takes and the full lowdown on Sonder Barcelona’s bars and restaurants.

What is Restaurant INSOLENT? 

Delicacy, character, quality. The cuisine at INSOLENT resists definition and is full of fun — chefs Julià and Miquel want you to play with your food around here. And wash it all down with “freaky” libations provided by Pedro. Located in Sonder La Casa del Sol, INSOLENT is inspired by the bohemian atmosphere of the Gràcia neighborhood, known for its colorful quirks and village vibes.

Bar Tomate 

Your go-to in the Gothic Quarter. Enjoy delectable tapas at the center of the action on the terrace downstairs or take your cocktail to the roof for stellar city views. Staying at DO Plaça Reial powered by Sonder? Treat yourself to a dip in the pool while you’re up there. 

Restaurante Casa Luz

Age of Aquarius

Delicious vegan fare at Sonder Paseo de Gràcia. With a blissfully peaceful terrace above the hustle and bustle of the thoroughfare below, this is the spot for a laidback lunch close to all the most iconic Gaudí architecture.
