Tickets opened its doors in March 2011 in a location next to the 41º cocktail bar, although they have separate entrances, they share the same space and are connected by a corridor. It was created with the aim of paying homage to tapas as a philosophy of life.
Tickets was a different and informal way of experiencing haute cuisine through its contemporary and traditional tapas. This was done in a playful and fun space, where the space and the food made up what we called “La vida tapa”.

Tickets explored the universal language of tapas and world gastronomy. A place where the experience of the diner and the way of eating were reviewed. An explosive concept with a different and constantly evolving offer, depending on the seasonality of the products available on the market.

Due to public demand, the concept, which was born as a tapas bar with the intention of “pret a porter” gastronomy, evolved into an increasingly sophisticated and creative proposal.

La Dolça

In 2014, after the closure of the 41º Experience, the resulting space was taken over by Tickets, where the sweet section was relocated and the space became “La Dolça”, where the diner could continue the experience and finish with desserts. The aesthetic was reminiscent of a large cake, with doilies forming the tables around the room and giant fruits hanging from the ceiling.

Tickets Barcelona will close its doors in 2020.
