The NBA and Spanish restaurant group AN Grup announced today that the first NBA Café in Europe will open in fall 2016 on the iconic La Rambla street in Barcelona, Spain. NBA Café Barcelona, the first NBA destination of its kind in Europe, will offer a unique dining and entertainment experience capturing the energy and feel of the NBA in a state-of-the-art venue.
“NBA Café Barcelona is an amazing challenge for the AN Grup. We are excited to be working with the NBA, and look forward to creating a ‘WOW!’ factor as it relates to the interior design, branding, menu and merchandise, in order to create an incredible experience for NBA fans,” said AN Grup President and Founder Artemi Nolla Furriol (pictured). “NBA Café Barcelona will be the city’s go-to destination for all things NBA, providing fans with the ultimate sports, entertainment and dining experience.”
Covering 1,200 square meters, NBA Café Barcelona will feature a range of NBA imagery, memorabilia, and merchandise, all complemented by an exciting menu offering quintessential American bar and grill favorites along with local and Mediterranean dishes. Multimedia displays including an arena-inspired, four-sided “jumbotron” over the bar area will show NBA highlights and programming so diners never miss a shot. Fans will also be able to meet NBA talent, including current and former players, mascots and dance teams during key moments throughout the year.
