19 December, 2011 0 comments

Christmas is everywhere, even if we try to avoid it, but it’s not all about eating and celebrating, it is now when most cities, including Barcelona, bring out the best performers to lighten up the mood.

Barcelona is not an exception, this month of December and the beginning of January until the official end of Christmas in Spain on the 6th of January is full of wonderful shows. From the 27 until the 30th of December the band Blackbirds will perform their black soul songs, with feelings of sadness, happiness and loneliness. All of this in Caixa Forum in Barcelona.

If you prefer the classics, the band Ma, me, mi, Mozart! will be performing life some of the all times favourites by the genius in the Barcelona Auditorium between the 28th and 29th December.

A different, magical place to spend the evening in Barcelona

19 December, 2011 0 comments

Barcelona is a fantastic city in itself, with its wonderful buildings and its many avenues perfectly built and with surprises in every corner, however, there is always space for a bit more excitement, isn’t there?

El Bosc de les Fades, or the Forest of Fairies, is one of such places where you will really be impressed and you will feel transported out of this world. Although a bit difficult to find, Pasaje de la Banca, 7, just by the Wax Museum, it is really worth the effort. The bar is set in a magical world, with a decor worth of the best fairy and fantasy movies. The area is also very big, but it can also be very intimate as it is divided off in different smaller areas, so if you are a romantic couple out in Barcelona for a short break, this is probably the place for you, cosy, dark and intimate.

If you like cocktails you can visit La Martinera in Muntaner 102. In this classic but modern cocktail bar you will find a great variety of cocktails from the classics to new more innovative ones. Martini is the main feature on their menu, with lots of variations and blends.

Theatres in Barcelona

16 November, 2011 0 comments

Barcelona is a city with entertainment aplenty thanks to all its theatres and concert halls. If you are in the city and want to enjoy what the night has to offer, we would advise you to visit some of the most important theatres. In these venues you will be able to enjoy all different types of shows, dance, musicals and other deeper plays.

A great part of these theatres are found in the centre, and therefore are quite easy to access from all over the city, especially if you are staying in a hotel in the area, like the Caledonian Hotel.

The Tivoli Theatre in calle Caspe, next to Paseo de Gracia, is one of the most outstanding ones. It is quaint with all its wooden decoration. It hosts often performance by the greatest of the show-business like the Spanish gypsy dancer Joaquin Cortés or many other theatre events.

Night clubbing in Barcelona

15 November, 2011 0 comments

Barcelona is well known for its exciting night life, and the great offer of clubs and pubs. However, be warned that Barcelona, as the rest of Spain, tends to do things later than in other countries. For instance, you can be still having your dinner at 11pm in a restaurant, leave at 12am and head straight to a club that is just opening. Public transport is also a great plus in this city as it runs very well and with very generous opening hours, on Saturdays theunderground is open all night, which makes things easier for those who love clubbing. One of these clubs is the Sutton Club, an exclusive disco where you will mix with the best dressed people of  Barcelona’s night. Tickets are 15 Euros, and it is situated in St Gervasi. Carrer de Tusset 13, just off the blue or green Metro line, Diagonal.
