NBA Café Barcelona: A first for Europe and a basketball fan's paradise
21 July 2016 @ 16:57

THE first-ever NBA café in Europe is set to open on Barcelona's lively central boulevard, La Rambla, this autumn and will be replete with global basketball memorabilia, with souvenirs to buy and typically-American grill fare on the menu.

Created by celebrated interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán, whose works can be seen in over 230 restaurants, hotels and shops in Spain and worldwide, the National Basketball Association eatery will be fitted with multi-media screens and even 'bleachers' to recreate the atmosphere of NBA matches in the USA.

Fans of the sport may even have the chance to meet their heroes past and present, as well as team mascots and dance groups, at special events throughout the year.

"The NBA has a long-standing relationship with basketball fans in Spain and with the city of Barcelona,", says vice-chairman of business and operations for the National Basketball Association in Europe, Jesús Bueno.

"And the new premises will be a totally unique destination where fans will be completely surrounded by the sport - this is an exceptional way of bringing the NBA to fans of all ages."
