Just like when you want to surprise your partner at home, for a restaurant to be considered romantic the rules are more or less the same: objects of natural origin (wood, plants …) original atmosphere, place not crowded… Let’s see what other features are important.
Yeah, candles never fail. In order to create an intimate atmosphere, the restaurant should have soft and warm lighting or natural light. Very blue light bulbs, even if they are few, will never help to bring warmth to the atmosphere. What candles do – or the lights that are installed on the tables – is for the people at those tables to pay more attention to what is in front of them, since they will be more illuminated than the environment in general (provided that, as we have said, the light in general is dim). La Selva Barcelona is open to the outside with large windows that offer 100% natural lighting.
Smells are a very important part of the decoration that is often left unattended. Sweet aromas, reminiscent of nature, flowers or fruit will help reinforce the atmosphere of the romantic restaurant. Some of these smells can be achieved with the same layout of the restaurant in terms of furniture and utensils. For example, wooden tables and chairs such as those you will find at La Selva Barcelona (or 100% cotton tablecloths) maintain that characteristic and pleasant organic aroma. In addition, of course, the characteristics of the embers and the smell of meat.
Finally, the musical thread should be in line with all of the above. What works best for a romantic restaurant are quiet and slow compass music styles and themes, such as jazz, 100% acoustic music themes or where vocal presence is very important. At La Selva we take great care of our musical selection, both day and night. You can also enjoy live music on weekends.
