Barcelona has a new eatery located in the Hotel Melia Sarria. Something of a unique culinary concept, Poncelet is a cheese bar inspired by its successful predecessor in Madrid. The interior covers a 400m2 footprint which has been transformed into a smart, quirky zone by designer Jose Manual Ferrero, and is reminiscent of a garden party or sunny picnic due to a floor of green marble, with tiles and rugs adorned with the images of cows, goats and sheep who are the stars of the show.
A green wall and planters by Vondom add to the fresh outdoorsy vibe, as does the majority of the upholstery which is in shades of green.
The large upbeat space features a library, full of books on everything you could ever want to know about cheese and the dining area has been worked into a variety of different settings with furniture from Sancal and Andreu World. Aptly chosen for the space, there is the honeycomb inspired Tea chair and stool, the serene Ronda chair, Casta like a deck chair from the 80’s, sublime Pion and fat comfy Talo which is perfect for loosening ones top button in if your tasting session gets out of hand.
So if you’re in Spain and a fan of cheese, be sure to check out Poncelet.
