There is so much more to Barcelona beyond the surface of the Sagrada Familia Church, Parc Güell, and La Rambla. Plan your visit around Barcelona’s up and coming neighborhoods as well.
Poble Sec is a local favorite, with almost all of Barcelona’s best tapas and pintxos in one place. On Carrer de Blai, you’ll find a dozen restaurants with bars overflowing with tapas. Sala Apolo, a chill nightclub, is open seven themed-days out of the week. Check out their “Nasty Mondays” and “Crappy Tuesdays.” Music here is techno/ electronic on the first floor and whatever is playing on the upstairs radio.
