Flying out today for a week, any decent clothes shops (inc. vintage) worth checking out? Have never bothered seeking them out before on previous trips.

Eligens in the gothic bit, I remember passing some other one that had Rick Owens et al but can't remember where I saw it.

was planning on going to sardinia or corsica this year end of Aug for 7 - 10 days but proving impossible to find any kind of decent accom thats not pure balling so considering heading to Barca and Valencia and somewhere else along that coast.

anyone done anything like this ? and can recommend best part of barcelona to stay? Likewise is valencia any good and can you recommend a decent beach resort along that coast between them for a few relaxing days ? (as ive heard valencia and barcelona beaches arnt fantastic?)

For Barca you want to hop on the train to either Sitges or Mataro, prefer the former because the town is a nice spot to spend the day but both great beaches.

Best spot really depends on whether you want it busy or quiet, Eixample has probably the best balance of location and quietness.

we've got an 8 man villa about an hour walk outside of the centre of Barca, no where near a metro station; some nonce didn't think to look when booking; anything like uber in Spain worth downloading?

Also which clubs and bars are good to go to for cheap beer and a good night

thanks in advance

Razzmatazz if it's a group of you should be no problem. Massive and not 'cool' but play house / techno. Plenty of tourists and locals who are probably in a similar position to you lot.

If its in Montjuic, surely it can't be that far from the funicular/ cable car?

Eligens in El Gotico for Vis etc., just bear in mind the weird Spanish opening hours, I tried to drop in on a weekend stay and it was closed both times

Check out the Acta Atrium Palace Hotel, 5 min walk off the Ramblas in Eixample… Nice little boutique hotel I stayed in a few weeks back
