The sights of Barcelona are a pleasure to behold, from the mix of architecture to the seemingly endless lines of trees, the café terraces full of people and the seafront with its bars, bustle and bathers. But there is another side of Barcelona that deserves to be seen, and that's the view across its rooftops.
Now in its seventh year, Barcelona's Hotel Terrace Week is the perfect time to head to the top of some of the city's finest hotels and appreciate the expansive panoramas you can enjoy from these privileged terraces.
What's more, it's not just a question of savouring a fine mojito or refreshing G&T accompanied by lip-smackingly good tapas, because all the places taking part lay on special events to make the experience even more appealing. Live music performances, DJ sets, magic shows, wine and other tastings, even synchronised swimming displays – this is no ordinary way to watch the sun set over the city on a balmy summer evening.
Barcelona never sleeps. The city has set the benchmark for the international electronic music scene and dances to the sounds of the world's top DJs. It's also the perfect place for lovers of jazz, rock, Latin rhythms and pop.
As we have already mentioned in Historic restaurants and In the hidden jewels of the Raval, Barcelona is full of bars and restaurants that seem frozen in time. Here are some suggestions in case you feel like getting away from the present and landing in the past, even if it’s just for a short time.
Barcelona has its own distinct melody. It sounds of the sea, of terraces full of people, of the wind blowing down from the mountains, of crowds and the Mediterranean. But if you want to hear its most lingering melody, you won't find it in the streets… you'll have to step inside one of the thousands of bars that resound with the sound of guitars, drums, basses and as many instruments as there are groups in the city.
In five short years, this curious invention, known as gin and tonic has conquered Barcelona's bars; so much so that bottles of gin fill their display cabinets and shelves. Their origins and blends are as varied as the combinations you'll find at the thousands of bars that specialise in serving them.
Making cocktails can be compared to symphony music because you have to be very precise if you want the mixture to attain the perfect harmony. You can't just mix for the sake of mixing; you have to mix with mathematical rigour and in-depth knowledge. If you want to visit some of the city's shrines to cocktails, keep on reading, sit at the bar and watch how the cocktail waiters in their uniforms perform magic in their laboratories.
Gastronomy and culture go hand in hand so much so that Barcelona combines culture with fine dining. You can eat in a Museum or in a unique builing here... the choice is yours!
