Great view onto the harbor and good food: Restaurant 1881 by Sagardi (11. January 2020)

The 1881 by Sagardi is nice due to the setting of the restaurant which is located on the top floor of the Museu d’Història de Catalunya and provides – especially during the day – a nice view onto Barcelona. I decided to try a couple of different things and went for “1/2 Iberian Ham Croquettes” […]

Just lost its Michelin star – and rightly so: Restaurant Barra de Tapas by Carles Abellan @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

Just lost its Michelin star – and rightly so: Restaurant Barra de Tapas by Carles Abellan @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

When I checked in at the W, I was told that they have a Michelin star restaurant on premise. Turns out, they had one and had just lost their star in 2020. And I think that shows. I went for the “white and cured anchovy marriage” (EUR 6.40) which was enjoyable because I really like […]

Decent breakfast selection right at the beach: Salt Restaurant & Beach Club @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

What I always like when staying in a W is the breakfast selection. I was told that the breakfast is served in two locations, the Salt as well as the Barra de Tapas and that the offer is the same. Only the next day, I found out that it isn’t entirely. The selection in the […]

An interesting back alley experience: Restaurant Passadis del Pep (10. January 2020)

I was recommended the Passadis del Pep, so I decided to give it a try. And frankly, overall, I liked the experience. it is a bit tricky to find the restaurant overall but once you’re in, they explain to you how the concept work, which is basically, they bring you a variety of different plates […]

Great Monday night clubbing: Shôko Barcelona (5. December 2016)

Great Monday night clubbing: Shôko Barcelona (5. December 2016)

Interesting enough, the Shôko didn’t charge any entrance fee – and that despite the fact that the place was way more crowded and partying than the Opium. And somehow we managed to figure a deal with Iñaki, the VIP manager, to end up inside in the VIP area to get a table (without minimal consumption) […]

Very empty club on a Monday night: Opium Barcelona (5. December 2016)

Very empty club on a Monday night: Opium Barcelona (5. December 2016)

The Opium Barcelona is located by the seashore and belongs to the clubbing area of Barcelona – the entrance for guys is EUR 10.00 (but it is a voucher for a drink). If you go for a “Vodka Lemon” (EUR 12.00), it is served quickly but doesn’t taste like much. At least they take credit […]

A not so hidden speak easy bar: Bar Paradiso (5. December 2016)

I only got to know about the hidden speak easy bar ‘Paradiso’ a day before but thought I should definitely should give it a try. The hidden bar is not really so hidden anymore as it has become too public by now, so there is actually a line outside the Pastrami shop already queuing for […]

Great Japanese cuisine: Restaurant Ikibana Borne (5. December 2016)

The “Ikibana Borne” was recommended by a friend, so I decided to give it a try. To start off, I had their special drink, called “Ikibana Fusion (fresh passion fruit puree, sake or rhum (or both!), dash of liquid sugar, slice of ginger crushed in a Boston Mixer topped with fresh lemon juice)” (EUR 11.00). […]
