SIESTA TIME: New bar to cater for weary businessmen

SIESTA TIME: New bar to cater for weary businessmen

In a modern twist on the traditional Spanish siesta, founder Maria Estrella Jorro de Inza got the idea from similar businesses in Japan.

“It’s funny that we’re known for the siesta, but we haven’t been professional about it,” said De Inza.

“We get a lot of men in suits who just want to relax and women wanting to take their heels off. Lunch break is the busiest time.”

Last year, Spaniards racked up 1,695 hours at work on average, ahead of Germany and France.

Only Italian and Portuguese staff spent more time at work, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
