My guide to Barcelona

I spent two months in Barcelona, one of my absolute favorite cities and I thought I’d share some of my favorite places, bars, restaurants and just some of the things I love with the city. Obviously there are millions of things to do and see, and just as many things I love, but here comes some of my favorites.


Segons mercat, Is located on Gan Via and is one of my favorite places for tapas, it has great sangria and the prices are good! A tip is to try their Patata Bravas, amazing!

Addis Abeba En Ethiopian restaurant I really loved. When eating you sit at small tables and eat with your hands, it has great prices and is a great change of pace from Spanish food.

Pintxos if you haven’t tried this before it’s a must! This you eat at bars and it’s small snacks and you can eat as much or as little as you want! You’ll find some great bars serving pintxos around Carrer de Bali 35.


La Tagliatella is an Italian restaurant with huge portions of delicious food to great prices. They are located at the top of Arena as well as by Av. Diagonal and I would highly recommend it to anyone liking Italian food!

La Botiga is also located at the top of Arena, highly recommend their paella with a glass of sangria!

Cake and Brunch is a super cute place perfect for brunch. Here you’ll see a lot of tourists and it can be hard to get a table, but it’s really good and for sure worth a visit.

Didn’t really visit that many night clubs, but a few got a visit during my time here.


Opium never actually visited this one myself, but my room mates paid it a visit. Among the beach clubs this was suppose to be the best one and was kinda crazy. Loud music, lots of lights and dancing people.

Otto Zutz was very different from the beach clubs, more locals are at this one and it has different dance floors playing different types of music. When I was there downstairs was all about hip-hop and upstairs was a lot of upbeat and latin music.


Sala Apolo – Nasty Monday was probably my favorite. Even though it was Monday it’s always crowded, the music was great and it’s worth a visit.


As you probably know there are tons of things to see in this great city, such as museums, parks, and monuments.

Picasso Museum
Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya
El Tibidabo
Arc de Triomf
Cathedral of Barcelona
La Boqueria
Sagrada Familia
Parc Güell

If you feel like you’re done sightseeing for the day, take a stroll on the beach and walk around Barceloneta, hang out with the birds on Placa de Catalunya or walk around on La Rambla.

    Great post! I wanted to go to El Tibidabo, but we just didn’t have enough time for it!
    But since we loved Barcelona so much we are going back and thick off those other things to do and see 😀
