Salut Wine Studio is a tasting room and an educational space that hosts tastings, private events, workshops, and classes about wine. Salut offers several different wine tastings that introduce clients to local wines and cavas. Clients can choose from Spanish, Catalan or sparkling wine tastings, or join one of the monthly themed tastings, such as natural wines, single varietal wines, and international wines, among others. In addition to a regular schedule of wine tastings, Salut hosts private events and winery tours for groups, including corporate cocktail hours, team building events, and 5-week and weekend wine courses about Spanish and French wines.
Those looking for a more informal experience can attend one of the weekly afterworks or vermut Sundays. All wines are available for purchase. Events are hosted by Melissa Leighty, a WSET level 3 certified wine expert with extensive knowledge about Catalan wines.

An authentic New York style bagel in Barcelona is a prized treasure. Fortunately, Boston Bagels delivers them right to your door. While bagel-shaped breads or croissants can be found around town, a true, chewy-on-the-inside-crispy-on-the-outside bagel reminiscent of the ones that Jewish immigrants from Poland introduced in New York City is a rarity in Barcelona. Boston Bagels comes close, offering up a wide selection of bagels in traditional flavors, including sesame, poppy seed, plain, and onion. Of course, this being Barcelona, lox and a schmear of cream cheese (aka “Philadelphia” as the Catalans call it) are readily available at the nearest grocery. Place your orders via WhatsApp by Thursday afternoon to have them delivered to your door every other Saturday morning — just in time for a lazy weekend breakfast. Boston Bagels is a virtual store.
