Cafes

There isn’t a particular place I can suggest to have a coffee. Honestly, you can get good coffee nearly everywhere here. Just try something else than Starbucks and other chains and you’ll be fine!


Restaurants

I don’t eat in restaurants that much as Barcelona is my home town at the moment and I’m not on a vacation. Haha. And I’m also a student. But some places worth mentioning are:

Kibuka (Sushi)
Address: Carrer de Goya 9
Address: Carrer de Verdi 64
Take away address: Torrent de L´olla 23
(All in Gracia area)

Address: Marquès De L´argenteria 1 BIS 08003

Sushiya 2

Address: Carrer de Cometa 3 08002

Istanbul (Turkish)
Address: You can find them all over but we usually go to the one in Barceloneta.

Dionisos (Greek)
Address: Avinyo Marqués De L´argentera 27
(You can find Dionisos in other areas as well)

Placa George Orwell is a nice square with small restaurants in the Gotic area. El Born area has also many nice restaurants. Don’t hesitate to try them.

Hotels


No clue! We spent two days in a hostel before we got our apartment so I have no idea about where to stay. Google is a God, you can find answers to everything and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

Bars

Okay this is nearly impossible to list bars where to go in Barcelona, at least for me. We usually just go anywhere that looks decent around the area where we might be. There are some really really nice ones in El Born and El Gotic neighborhoods.


Clubs

Razzmatazz in general is pretty nice for partying. Just don’t go there before 1-2 am. It’s dead. Another nice place for partying is definitely Apolo. I just recently heard that they renewed Nevermind as a skater bar.

Cinemas

The one and only cinema I go here is Icaria. It’s one of the only cinemas that play movies with their original languages. (All the original language movies are marked with V.O.S signs)

Hope you guys find this useful!

Miss Red Lips Posing with a Hat

I’ve been looking for a bigger hat for ages and finally found it on my absolute favorite vintage store here in Barcelona. If you’re looking for original vintage clothing go to Revolution in Carrer de Verdi 80, Gracia.

The shop owner is the nicest man ever, who knows the story behind the garments. For example this hat is an extremely old Jewish hat, which are really rare. I also bought this leather belt. The prices are so decent compared to other vintage stores around Barcelona and the service is the best I’ve ever experienced.

Vintage Shopping

I have posted about Produit National Brut before, but this time I got a chance to take photos inside the shop as well. PNB is a wonderful vintage store located in Carrer de Avinyó 29. On the street you will find several other interesting small boutiques as well. The prices in PNB are a bit more reasonable than in other vintage shops. I love to pop in every time I pass the street just to have a look at all the adorable clothing they have!
