The majestic curved wooden panelling of Paradiso’s front bar is the last thing you expect to see after walking through the fridge door at the back of a pastrami shop in Barcelona’s trendy El Born district. To match the stunning décor, owner Giacomo Giannotti and his team have worked hard in Paradiso’s off-site laboratory to develop its Universo menu, which physically lights in the dark. The element of surprise continues with the elaborate drinks on the glowing menu, such as Space Colada and the Volcano Negroni, which is served alongside a mini dry ice volcano erupting over the glass. However, as well as its show-stopping cocktails, Paradiso also has its own signatures, including the Great Gatsby and Supercool Martini, which uses ‘supercooled’ water to build an iceberg in the glass before creating a personalised Martini right at your table.
