Barcelona

Overview

Barcelona... amazing. Of all the places I think we both decidedly think that we can easily spend the rest of our unworthy lives living among the cool cats in this Catalonian capital. Barcelona transcends quality of life; the food here is to die for, the wine, exceptional, the beaches epic, the parties orgasmic, and the people, well, the people are just plain dope. We absolutely love this golden city by the sea with it's amazing architecture, delicious nibbles, and fun loving atmosphere, and cant wait to show you more.

Barcelona’s Incredible Nightlife

Get. Your. Dancing. Shoes. On.  We’re headed to Dirty Monday.  That’s about all you need to know.

La Manual Alpargatera

Since 1940, La Manual Alpargatera was the first espadrille workshop to fashion espadrilles.  This is the real deal, authentic Barcelona fashion we are talking about here, people. All of their espadrille shoes are handmade. Most of their shoes are created in our shop, but all the rest is created in Spain. Their workshop/storeroom is definitely worth checking if you’re looking for Barcelona tradition that will turn heads when you head home.

 

 

La Graciosa Wine

La Graciosa is a fabulous natural wine shop tucked away in Barcelona’s Vila de Gracia.  If you’re in the mood for some local natural vino, grab a seat at the bar, order up some tapas, and get ready to learn a ton about what makes this Mediterranean region so special.

Barcelona’s Beaches

National Geographic once called Barcelona “The best beach city in the world”, beating out the likes of Miami, Sydney, and Rio.  That’s high praise, and with good reason:  Barcelona’s beaches are incredible.  We walked all along Platja de Llevant to the W Hotel, strolling by volleyball games, dancing, and sunbathing.  It’s definitely one of the most special beaches in all of Europe.

Barcelona’s Food Scene

The food scene in Barcelona is an embarrassment of riches.  From starting your day off right with a healthy, hearty breakfast at La Esquina or Citizen, to dining on delicacies at Bar Mut, El Nacional, and Cañete, to stopping by some of the locals’ favorite spots at La Malandrina and Mercat de St. Josep de la Boqueria.  Barcelona has such a wide range of incredible offerings, you can eat well every meal of the day.  Enjoy!

Barcelona’s Museums and Architecture

Barcelona has one of the best museum and architecture scenes in all of Europe.  In this episode, we are going to cover the majestic Barcelona Cathedral, the MEAM Modern Art Museum, the Fundacio Joan Miro, the Castell de Montjuïc, and some of Gaudi’s most magnificent works that you can find all over the city, including the breathtaking La Sagrada Familia.  To perfectly round out your trip, may we also recommend Museu Picasso and Park Güell.

Barcelona’s Bar Cañete

If you have only have time for one meal in Barcelona, you have to make it Bar Cañete.  This place does tapas the right way.  It will have just the right amount of hustle and bustle, and the absolute friendliest and funniest waiters in the city.  But of course you didn’t come for that, now did  you?  No, you came for the food, and the dishes here are UN-FOR-GET-A-BLE.  Grab a seat, get a glass of wine, and enjoy some of the most succulent dishes in the Barcelona.

Welcome to Barcelona!

Come watch us play a joke on our absolute favorite city on this entire trip: The inimitable Barcelona.

Barcelona in 360

Barcelona is one of the most colorful and lively cities in the world, and there’s no better way to check out the city than with a 360 cam on a selfie stick at the end of Roberto’s arm.  Enjoy.

Mugged in Barcelona!

“I WILL F**KING RUIN YOU!”, I furiously shout at 3 men that attacked me today in Barcelona.  It did the trick, and they scurried off into the streets, probably waiting for the next sucker to walk down that road.  Then again, I screamed it pretty damn viciously, Read More
