Getting in this sushi restaurant is like entering a Kioto street from a minimalist perspective. The interior design by Masquespacio Studio is inspired by the japanese architecture of traditional houses and streets, recreated with the presence of wooden structures. An impressive origami flowers installation hangs from the ceiling, reminding the visitors the look of the japanese traditional sakura trees. The contrast between wood, concrete and paper, and the ambient lighting create a very warm and cozy ambient.
Besides the excellent menu, it is not surprising that Nozomi has been considered one of the 10 most beautiful restaurants worldwide on 2015.
An independent shop in the historic centre of the Barrio del Carmen that feels like a cross between a curiosity shop and an art gallery. It's filled with old posters, photographs and trinkets from yesteryear as well as some contemporary graphic design pieces.
The location of this museum is a 1930’s art déco style industrial building. It used to be an hydraulic bombs factory. After a restoration, the building maintains its architectonic essence and nowadays, this huge art center harbors in its plants a wide collection of rotating and permanent contemporary art pieces.
Ubik is half cafeteria and half bookstore. It’s a very cozy place, perfect for gathering around with friends, having an artisan beer or read one of the books from it’s shelves. Ubik is a multicultural point where gastronomy, literature, expositions and sometimes live music get thogether. It’s cheap and in it’s menu you’ll always find fresh products brought to you straight form the Ruzafa market.
Picadilly is the right club if you want to have fun without any hint of pretension. It’s the funniest club in Valencia without a doubt. It has a gay-friendly ambient and an interior design that reminds of the 80’s discos. It has 3 rooms and you can listen to a big repertoire of hits from any decade. It goes from Abba, Eurythmics, Madonna and Donna Summer to nowadays hits from the underground and mainstream music.
One of the rooms is a “silent disco” with a very curious approach. You get a pair of inalambric headphones as you enter the room, and you can choose up to three different sessions to listen to. It's a very comic situation because if you take the headphones off you can see the rest of the people dancing and singing the session they have chosen, being in a room without music.
