just got back.
in terms of places to eat/drink i highly recommend 'Bodega 1900' and 'El Nacional'. both were top notch and not too pricey considering the quality of the food and service.
i also recommend watching Messi score a great freekick against Sevilla live at Camp Nou!

Going with the Mrs this weekend, where's best for cocktails? Also any food recommendations, got one night covered already and got a bit of a list of places but just wondering if I've missed anywhere. Also any must see things apart from the norm, Mrs has never been but I've been a couple of times so wouldn't mind seeing something new.

El Raco d'en Cesc does brilliant Catalan cuisine. Has a great sommelier too and they do a brilliant 5 course menu with beer matchings
Day trip to Sitges or Girona are good options too.

Sounds ideal, what's it called?
26 Apr 2016 21:01
Joe, try Solange Cocktails & Luxury Spirits and Old Fashioned Gin Tonic & Cocktail Bar. Bar at the W isn't bad either

Already got old fashioned in mind, will note solange as well. Missed the boat on tickets but got a reservation in Hoja Santa instead.

Bit late, couldn't remember what it was called.
Kælderkold - just off the Rablas opposite Liceu. Not a cocktail bar but I seem to remember drinking a lot of cocktails in there.

Guys - overall would you recommend this as place to visit? Thinking of going with Mrs.

Barcelona is an incredible city. Great nightlife, food and you're not far from the beach.
I'm doing 10 days out there in July. City first then a villa after the first weekend.

Barcelona is fantastic but I always get fucked off with the tapas whenever I go there. Not the best city for food IMO. The architecture though…
23 May 2016 14:27
There's loads of incredible food in Barcelona. Anyway tapas isn't Catalonian, better off going to Sevilla or Madrid for that.

Any recommendations for a topper hotel?

I'd go with Porto over Barcelona. The food is cheaper and the seafood is fresher. The people are far friendlier and the beaches are so much nicer.
Alas, if you do go to Barcelona, then I recommend Tickets and Bar Pinotxo for food joints.

Anyone there over the next few days that could help me with something?

its true, the majority of languistine fished in scotland is shipped to spain. really odd but there just isnt as big a market for them in the UK (largely because of the amount of nan kids who dont like fish unless its battered)
