Their aim was to provide an informal place where customers could relax and enjoy themselves. During the designing of this space, they were intrigued about how tapas evolved in Spanish culture. It is said that bartenders served beer with a saucer on it to avoid flies, realizing that they could use it to serve a small snack, thus attracting new customers. In creating the history of this not very informal space, the concept has been exemplified in the use of colour and particularly blue inspired by Jean Miro.

The project was realized in a new building, with over a third of the space on a ramp. The ramp was the most challenging problem, however, as it was believed that the result contributed to the success of the atmosphere. This situation meant that there was no choice but to interact directly with the guests at the entrance: an unexpected experience in the local gastronomic scene.
