Art may feed thought, but it won’t feed your stomach. Cosmo Gallery gracefully takes care of both concerns in a neatly designed part-café, part-gallery space. Delectable edibles bookend art immersion, and the cafe’s laid-back sofa-sphere make for a cozy spot to down the simple fare at Cosmo, such as hummus and guacamole, manchego cheese and Ibérico ham, fresh juices and weekend mojitos. And with your belly sated and head bedeviled by strong drink, soaking up the sumptuous visual art in the gallery will be a cinch. Cosmo’s curation includes a mixture of contemporary graphic-art and works by emerging newcomers, creating a meeting point for young artists looking to showcase their work in a professional environment.
Located right next to the university in a youthful, comfortable district of Barcelona, the friendly, neighborhood vibe of Cosmo reflects the community to which it belongs. Cosmo arranges art and education opportunities, while hosting regular concerts and pop-up stores in the gallery space.
