Went to Bharma

15 Mar

In January I was working in Spain and took a day trip to Barcelona.

Legend told me of a bar dedicated to LOST.

So I had to visit.

They have a Tail Section.

A hatch that lights up.

Ruins.

Dharma Station door.

They even have their own energy drink and beer with two different labels, one is black one is white.

And the UPC code is 4815162342.

And sandwiches named after everybody.

And coincidentally I got the veggie.

    SO visiting Bharma.com now. What a blast, ahem, that must have been!

  2. Debbie M. March 15, 2011 at 10:37 pm #

    How cool! They must have been so surprised to see you. How did you like your sandwich?

  3. Miss Scarlett March 15, 2011 at 10:38 pm #

    That is seriously awesome~!~

  4. Heather March 15, 2011 at 10:41 pm #

    This is amazing! So cool!

  5. vospik March 15, 2011 at 10:43 pm #

    Super cool! I hope I can get over to Barcelona one day, but it looks like my Spanish will be useless! The ‘Hurley’ dish was the only one I could understand off that menu. Dear lord, the diners must have freaked to see you there!

    • Germán Socías March 16, 2011 at 2:01 am #

      Not surprised you don’t understand the menu! It’s written in the local language, catalan, instead of spanish!

    • Barrut March 16, 2011 at 3:03 am #

      You don’t understand it because it’s in catalan. In Barcelona we speak catalan as well as spanish. An some weird english too😉

    • Miguel March 16, 2011 at 3:38 am #

      Don’t worry, the menu is not written in Spanish, it’s written in Catalan (spoken in catalunya). It’s a different language but some words are pretty much the same😉

    • Vic March 16, 2011 at 4:00 am #

      It looks like your spanish will be useless because the menu is in Catalan! Hehe.

    • Lili March 16, 2011 at 1:41 pm #

      That’s because that is actually Catalan, not Spanish!😉

    • rs242 August 28, 2012 at 5:32 am #

      There is not a word of Spanish here, is in Catalan language. If you never heard before it’s like a “blend” between French, Spanish and Italian.
      Greetings from Barcelona🙂

  6. Courtney Fielder March 15, 2011 at 10:48 pm #

    I can only speak for myself, but you make this fan very happy that you are so down to earth & dedicated to the fans that love LOST so much. Wonderful!!!!

  7. MARTA March 15, 2011 at 11:52 pm #

    hahahaha I have not gone yet, I will visit! I hope you enjoyed barcelona, mi tierra!!! :))))

  8. DANIEL ELCHE March 15, 2011 at 11:59 pm #

    impresionante¡¡¡¡

  9. Jason Doucette March 16, 2011 at 12:24 am #

    This is just awesome! My dream is to run a business like this as well. In fact, our club produces entertainment “Incidents” at Tommy Rockers in Las Vegas, which feature a Lost Menu and live music from the show performed by local talent. Pictures and video can be found on our site and face book. I gotta visit your Bharma some day! Quite inspiring!

  10. LSE March 16, 2011 at 1:28 am #

    I can’t believe this exists! I have family in Spain, I’ll have to hit this place up next time I visit.

  11. mrcelofan March 16, 2011 at 1:37 am #

    Todo un detalle por tu parte visitarlos. Ese bar queda a nos 20 kilómetros de donde yo vivo. Será cuestión de pasarse por allí. Saludos.

  12. Claudia March 16, 2011 at 1:52 am #

    That is SO COOL. I would love to go there!
    People must have gone nuts that HURLEY was in there.
    Awesome post.

    But it REALLY makes me miss LOST.

    • eldesastre March 16, 2011 at 4:06 am #

      I’m lucky to live in Barcelona and to know very well Bharma and its owner, Rafa.

      That day I could arrive to the bar on time and know you, Jorge. That was a total pleasure, and the first time that someone of the “Lost” cast visitted the bar. Rafa was absolutelly excited about it!

      Thanks again for your one-day travel to Barcelona and your visit to Bharma Jorge!😀

  13. Jason Doucette March 16, 2011 at 3:04 am #

    This is awesome! It’s been my dream to operate a place like this; which is why, for the past year, our fan club has sponsored entertainment “Incidrnts” at Tommy Rocker’s in Las Vegas. We also have a custom menu and live performances of songs from Lost. Pics & video can be seen on our face book sites. I’ve gotta visit this Bharma!

  14. Debby March 16, 2011 at 3:20 am #

    That’s way cool! I should have known that I lived in Barcelona for quite a while. Guess it’s time to go back. So you’re a veggie??😛

  15. winnie March 16, 2011 at 3:23 am #

    Ha! They also have a Duff beer, a little Simpson’s thrown into the mix? Looks like fun.

  16. Matt Comegys March 16, 2011 at 4:15 am #

    Several years ago, I went to a bootleg Star Wars themed pub in Utsunomiya, Japan. The tables were set in various spots of a Tatooine looking areas, and you could grab stormtrooper and Darth Vader masks after a few drinks and wear them for a while. They unfortunately went out of business a few years ago, but it makes me happy to know that Bahrma exists and looks just as awesome.

  17. Antonia March 16, 2011 at 5:39 am #

    Uh, whoa.
    Thats the coolest thing Ive seen since the Lost numbers above Prof. Thoms bar in NYC.

  18. Tena Lynn March 16, 2011 at 6:07 am #

    Coincidentally?🙂 That is just too cool, I would LOVE to go there!!

  19. Shannon March 16, 2011 at 6:19 am #

    That’s pretty darn cool! So, did the owners totally freak out when you walked in the door?? They must have been SOO excited to see you there!

  20. LUANN RUCKER March 16, 2011 at 6:31 am #

    How COOL makes me want to go!!

  21. Mar Bonet March 16, 2011 at 6:47 am #

    I went there a year ago, the owners are so nice and the ambient is great. I hope to be able to go again when I go to Barcelona next time. I’m sure they were freaking out when you came in hahaha.

    Greetings!

  22. Ania March 16, 2011 at 6:47 am #

    ….aaand I’m leaving for Barcelona!

  23. Maggie March 16, 2011 at 6:49 am #

    That is SO cool! I was in Barcelona this fall, I wish I’d known about it! If I ever go back, I’m so checking it out! Were they all really excited to see you there?

  24. Irish Girl March 16, 2011 at 7:01 am #

    Talk about Deja Vu, Jorge. I loved all of it, but for some reason that UPC code made me giggle the most. I nearly inhaled my morning coffee…Heeehee!

  25. Jessica Murray-Ruef March 16, 2011 at 7:05 am #

    How freakin’ awesome is that! Thanks as always for sharing.

  26. Marilyn Kanes March 16, 2011 at 7:12 am #

    How cool! You must have totally blown their minds when you came in the Bharma Door! Thanks for posting – this made my day. Have a good one!

  27. Nikki March 16, 2011 at 8:01 am #

    That’s a seriously cool bar! I bet the bar’s owners were absolutely thrilled to have you visit, Jorge! 🙂

  28. Gina March 16, 2011 at 8:02 am #

    You know you have made it when a dish has been name after you!

  29. Regina March 16, 2011 at 8:05 am #

    I would definitely make it a point to eat there for the novelty of it, and I miss the show Characters so much. They should have a chain of these in major cities or theme parks, and have tv monitors at each table so you can watch your favorite episodes while you eat, or behind the scenes stuff. I would have been like a 5 year old on Christmas morning if I ran into you there- that’s awesome. It’s so cool that you’re so down to earth and can embrace the greatness of LOST. Looking forward to your new series coming. Never stop being you !

  30. Nitou March 16, 2011 at 8:17 am #

    Wow awesome ! I’ve always wanted to visit Barcelona. That will be a additional reason to go there🙂

  31. Laurel Avery March 16, 2011 at 8:19 am #

    And you were actually able to make out the Catalan? I’m impressed! Just the fact that you were able to find anything vegetarian in Spain is a miracle. I assume the bar must have been there when I lived in the area, which was until last December. I wish I had known about it, I would have loved that place!

  32. Mary March 16, 2011 at 8:26 am #

    This is REALLY cool!!! I bet they were excited to see you there😉

  33. Dawn Alioto March 16, 2011 at 8:37 am #

    Wow–that’s pretty cool! I bet they were excited to have you visit.

  34. Kerri March 16, 2011 at 8:43 am #

    Seriously awesome! I’d have loved to see the faces of the employees when you walked in the door.

  35. Özer March 16, 2011 at 8:47 am #

    Now I HAVE to go to Barcelona! I liked Spanish people before, now I love them!
    (Cerveza La Roca Negra, yeah!)

  36. Jessica March 16, 2011 at 8:52 am #

    thats freakin amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Debbie Johnson March 16, 2011 at 8:56 am #

    Must have been a surreal experience!

  38. Maggs March 16, 2011 at 9:18 am #

    What funny timing because I’ve been non-stop watching LOST this week because I can leave it on in the background as I do stuff. I’ve been in a very LOSTie mood lately.

    Did anyone notice they also had Duff Beer?! Is that a thing, because I only know it as a Simpsons reference. Looks like a fun place to go!

  39. Jeff March 16, 2011 at 9:23 am #

    Sorry…this isn’t related…an awesome dog video from Japan…the 2nd dog is NOT dead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nexofSW4u7Y

  40. Nahara March 16, 2011 at 9:35 am #

    It’s awesome, but I see nothing for Eko. 😦

  41. jennY March 16, 2011 at 9:46 am #

    This place is amazzzing. Thanks for sharing!

  42. Steven Dirckze March 16, 2011 at 9:50 am #

    Woah, I didn’t know about this. And I call myself a LOST fan.
    I guess I’ll have to go there now.
    As a sidenote, have you seen http://jackimals.tumblr.com/ ?
    It’s Jack (Matthew Fox)’s face on random animals. I can’t quite explain why it’s so hilarious.

  43. jackie March 16, 2011 at 10:07 am #

    wow, that’s really cool..did they recognize you?..be funny if they didn’t

  44. Mary B March 16, 2011 at 11:42 am #

    Jorge, I have been dreaming about a trip to Barcelona. I will definitely stop by that bar. I hope they have pictures of you posted there.

  45. Renee March 16, 2011 at 11:52 am #

    That it too freaking cool!

  46. Xenu01 March 16, 2011 at 12:22 pm #

    How funny and meta! Did you get recognized?

    I think it’s hilarious that Faraday is stuck being anchovies, by the way.

  47. EstherK March 16, 2011 at 1:12 pm #

    I can’t believe this place exists, and yet I can. Thank goodness there’s no Nikki and Paolo sandwich. I don’t even want to know what that would taste like.

  48. pamelalovescharlie March 16, 2011 at 1:38 pm #

    How awesome is that???? Did they ask you to sign a pic for the wall? I wish I could have seen everyone’s faces when you walked through the door🙂

  49. celley March 16, 2011 at 2:24 pm #

    freaking cool, dude😀

  50. Becky @TheVioletFig March 16, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    How fun is that? 🙂

  51. deards March 16, 2011 at 5:30 pm #

    That is so cool,I bet they were so happy to see you! Love that your sandwich turned out to be a veggie.

  52. Jules March 16, 2011 at 5:58 pm #

    MUST GO THERE! They must have been thrilled to have you there!!! I will definitely have the vegetale sandwich. The Hurley. What a great treat!

  53. Patrick March 16, 2011 at 6:05 pm #

    Oh man I was just in Barcelona in December. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this place! Awesome post.

  54. Jim Finney March 16, 2011 at 8:07 pm #

    Hi Jorge,

    Great to see that even you can enjoy Lost themed activities. The waitstaff must have been out of their minds upon seeing you show up.

    My wife, her sister, brother in law and I were in Oahu last week. Am hoping that mentioning this doesn’t make you sad, but we stopped in and paid our respects to Nunu. We laid some leis and took a moment to recognize your loss.

    We are very glad that you have a new doggy friend.

    Here’s a picture of us at Nunu’s memorial, if you’d like one: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=648607413386&set=a.648604454316.2143186.500304&l=08648a7cd3&l=08648a7cd3

    and: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=648647009036&set=a.648646305446.2143202.500304&l=7aa15bd39d&l=7aa15bd39d

    Take care, Jorge.

    Great post and thanks for posting so many. I tumbled the 1st one, if’s that ok. I’m rechecking the rules.

    I have to go see Spain again, God willing.

  56. Michaela March 17, 2011 at 1:40 am #

    HOW COOL IS THAT??????? Thanks for sharing this awesome bar with us.

  57. deneicee March 17, 2011 at 4:46 am #

    Fabulous! I especially love the Bharma beer’s UPC code!

  58. Linnea Taylor March 17, 2011 at 6:19 am #

    Wow! How cool is that. I would love to go there! I like the sandwich title “Black Smokey”. hahah! cute.

    p.s. I think it’s awesome you have a blog!!!!! I can’t wait to send you a letter requesting an autograph!

  59. Eva Klein March 17, 2011 at 7:04 am #

    Gosh I was in Barcelone just a week ago and didn’t know about that bar😦 I would have looked at all the streets to find it!!! But well, it’s a good excuse to go back on holiday there😉 thanks for telling!

    huge kisses from France!!!!!

  60. Karen C. March 17, 2011 at 7:41 am #

    NYC needs a place like Bharma

  61. llisa March 17, 2011 at 9:19 am #

    I so want to have a beer here! FUN!
    I don’t speak the language but it appears Sayid is a burger (makes sense since he is most def “delish beefcake”) Michael is… black angus? Okay! But am I correct? Sawyer is CHICKEN? Now that’s just mean, sounds like jealousy to me hahahaha
    You had to have made the owners and patrons soooo happy!
    But you do that to everyone🙂

  62. Jeff March 17, 2011 at 10:18 am #

    I’ll take a Bernard Burger with a side of Mr. Friendly Fries.

  63. Bad_Wobot1013 March 17, 2011 at 10:58 am #

    We NEED a chain of Bharma Bars in US + Canada at least. Hope they have enough success for that to happen.

    Buttoms Up Freckles!

  64. Caitlin March 17, 2011 at 11:01 am #

    this is awesome! i just discovered the website Bharma.com the other day, and thought it would be awesome to go there! you’re so lucky

  65. Raquel March 17, 2011 at 1:06 pm #

    I am from Barcelona, and I went to this bar!!!

  66. Katherine March 17, 2011 at 1:47 pm #

    This bar looks SO awesome. They have Duff beer too!

  67. Janet March 17, 2011 at 2:36 pm #

    It must be cool to be you, Jorge. Adored and admired.

    It doesn’t hurt that you can act (and sing)!

  68. MM March 18, 2011 at 5:19 am #

    I can’t believe I missed this when I was in Barcelona, I want to go baaaaaack😦

  69. immodiumabuser March 18, 2011 at 8:32 am #

  72. Arsnof March 18, 2011 at 3:54 pm #

    Do they have a Jin and tonic?

  73. Tammie March 19, 2011 at 10:48 am #

    It may not have been a coincidence. One of their employees or patrons may have suggested that to them after reading your blog! Did you try it?

  74. Jeff March 20, 2011 at 4:52 pm #

    Let go of my Mr. Eko Eggo.

  75. Oliverde March 23, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

    All I am really curious about is: What did they do when YOU walked in?😉

  76. Noemi March 24, 2011 at 2:29 pm #

    That is awesome I hope to visit Europe next year and will put this on my itnerary if I do stop in Barcelona! Thanks for sharing Jorge🙂 will be sending you some photos to autograph soon…
    Noemi

  77. Mighty Morfin March 24, 2011 at 6:18 pm #

    Oh man!! That must have been the most hilarious picture (if anyone took one) of the owners and patrons faces when you walked through the doors!! I bet they were absolutely beside themselves!! Did you sign anything? Did people like go crazy and take your picture in front of everything? I hope you told some of your other castmates about it!!

  78. emilie March 25, 2011 at 3:22 pm #
