Distinction between bar and restaurant: The catalan Decree 317/1994 makes a distinction between bars and restaurants and describes them in the following terms: the layout of bars always includes a counter, although it may also include an area with tables for customers. In any case, bars can only offer drinks, snacks (tapas), and sandwiches. On the other hand, Restaurantts are premises with kitchen and lounge-dining-room.

These are the steps to set up a bar:
Firstly, you must apply for the local license. Enginytech Engineering Office may design the project and apply for the license on your behalf.
