THE SPACE

BlackLab is located in one of the iconic buildings of Barcelona. The emblematic Palau de Mar is a beautiful example of port architecture of the 19th century. Inside, BlackLab has two main spaces: The Cellar Room is spacious and comfortable, with high ceilings and large windows, and the Brewery Lounge is a more intimate space for small meetings, group dinners and much more.

TERRACE

Thanks to the great location in the Palau de Mar, BlackLab has a huge terrace that has become a favorite with our clients thanks to the characteristically good Mediterranean climate. On our terrace you can enjoy great BlackLab beer and food while feeling the sea breeze.

-BEER-

At BlackLab, we believe that brewing great beer is an artistic process, not an industrial one. A process that is equal parts passion, ingenuity, time and attention to detail. We believe in honoring the classic beer styles, but also believe strongly in experimentation and pushing the boundaries of what beer can be. Our brewery is on display everyday for our customers providing a direct connection to the process and creating a unique space to enjoy a some food and a pint.

YEAR-ROUND BEER

Some of our beers have already become authentic classics with our customers. Our Year-Round Beers are in continual production and you can always find them on tap at BlackLab. Now you only need to decide which one is your favorite!
