1836 El Cafè de les 7 portes

7 Portes was originally born as a fine coffee house inspired by the luxurious Paris cafés. The new café had seven doors for the costumers and another one for the staff, reason why it was called “Cafè de les 7 Portes”. Later, in 1929, Chef Morera took over the management of the café, and made it into a restaurant. The establishment became one of the most popular in the city; and a meeting place for journalists, intellectuals, artists and politicians, among others. Some years later, Parellada’s family took over the restaurant and 7 Portes achieved one of the most successful period ever until it has turned into one of the most emblemathic Barcelona’s restaurant specialized in catalan traditional cuisine.
