Tickets is one of Barcelona’s most famous tapas bars thanks in no small part to its connection with the Adrià family. This Thursday Tickets was the stage for the opening of “Tapa Solidaria” for the fourth year running. Tapa Solidaria is an admirable initiative run by Barcelona´s restaurant community to help combat child poverty. This year over 80 establishments will be involved in Tapa Solidaria.

Tickets is located in the Paral.lel area of Barcelona, not far from Las Ramblas. Chef and owner Albert Adrià (brother of Ferran Adrià) presented the event alongside Lluís Prats of the Casal dels Infants, and the promoter of this initiative.

The money is raised to combat child poverty through a 0.50 cent donation from the price of a tapa sold in the partaking restaurants. So the good news is that when you visit Barcelona and eat tapas, you can help to combat child poverty at the same time.

Tapa Solidaria runs until the 7th of January 2015 offer until January 7, 2015 a cover tasting at participating restaurants go to 0.50 euros from the sale of a cover of his letter to the Casal dels Infants.

Albert Adrià has highlighted the importance of the participation of the hospitality industry in charity events such as this. Since 2011, Tapa Solidària has managed to raise 66,000 euros for the Casal dels Infants, a foundation that has worked for over 30 years to improve the future education of children and youth at risk of social exclusion.

As usual, if you buy a tapa in a restaurant partaking in Tapa Solidaria, you can enter into a draw to win a meal for two. This year for the first time you can also make a donation virtually via the Let’s Bonus platform.
