Art, beauty and culture, that’s how Opera—the newest addition to the Eixample’s many quirky spaces—presents itself. The brainchild of Italian-born Giovanni Lavorante and Mauro Morando, Opera is an oasis of creativity, bringing a touch of Italian glamour to the streets of the city. Their vision was to create a space that ‘stimulates the imagination and feeds the soul, where artists can express themselves, beauty is nurtured and culture is made exciting and accessible’. As well as housing a mini gallery and event space that showcases the work of local and international artists, Opera also has a beauty salon where experienced stylist Giovanni offers hair styling, colouring and texturing worthy of the catwalk. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for regular updates and event information.
