The Antiga Esquerra de l’Eixample (or the Old Left Part of the Eixample - mot-a-mot translation) is, as its name tells, one of Eixample’s neighbourhoods, and was one of the first areas, together with the Dreta de l'Eixample, to be built following the Pla Cerdà. Marked by the Diagonal and the Gran Via, and next to the Avinguda de Sarrià, the neighbourhood’s location is unbeatable.
Even though it's next to the centre, its residential areas are quiet. And even with tranquil residential areas, the neighbourhood offers leisure, culture and a fun day and night life filled with terraces, cafés, art galleries , bistros, boutiques, bars, restaurants, night clubs…
Gourmets and fine dining lovers can enjoy different Michelin star restaurants such as El Gaig, the Angle Barcelona Restaurant or Disfrutar, commandeered by the former heads of the Bulli kitchen. And let’s not forget about Cocktail Bars like Solange or the internationally recognised Dry Martini by Javier de las Muelas.
For those who are considering living in the Antiga Esquerra de l’Eixample, its commercial opportunities also interesting. Besides having the luxury shops on Passeig de Gràcia right next to it, the neighbourhood streets hide their own treasures, like local designers' boutiques or delicatessen stores, such as cheese or wine shops.
In the Antiga Esquerra de l’Eixample, and more specifically next to the University Square, the historical building of Barcelona University is located, an elegant neo-romanic construction, built at the end of the 19th century and catalogued as a Cultural Asset of Spain (BIC).
And juts some streets away you can find the recently renovated Mercat del Ninot. This market gets its name from an old bar from the neighbourhood that had a doll at the entrance, which made it into a famous landmark of the area. The same doll that nowadays welcomes the market’s visitors.
The authorities have announced the urban transformation project for the Esquerra de l’Eixample, which will affect both the Antiga (Old)and the Nova (New) Esquerra de l’Eixample. The project is expected to be developed during the next years and will focus on the creation of new green areas, the concession of more spaces for pedestrians and reducing of the traffic in the area.
Thus, the plans for the neighbourhood’s future are directed at the improvement of the quality of life, which promises to make the area even more appealing to residents, buyers and tenants.
