Bar Mut (shhhh)

Ever so often you are made to feel like one of the 'in' crowd. A burly bouncer slides you past the velvet rope. Your seat reserved at some ritzy number of a restaurant. You're on the inside looking out.

While dining at the a-ma-zing PICNIC in El Born in Barcelona Tim and I were let in on such a sweet secret by one of the owners, Tara. 

There is in fact a secret bar above trendy tapas spot BAR MUT in the L'Eixample neighborhood.  She called up the manager and reserved a table under my name.
