Less is more ... rather than overwhelming you with volumes of travel tips, here is a specific list of exclusive recommendations with Mr & Mrs Crystal's stamp of approval.

bars

CDLC

What a fantastic place to spend a night in Barcelona! Don’t get here till late, but make sure you book yourself a day bed to enjoy the VIP service and Crystal champagne. Kick back and enjoy the excellent DJ tunes and great crowd. This club rocks!

Ginger

A funky retro-cocktail bar tastefully hidden alongside a pretty Barri Gottic square, Ginger is a great option for an intimate drink away from the rumble of Las Ramblas. The music gives the bar some atmospheric spunk, and the banquette vibe chills the ambience to ensure a fun and sociable night out.

Gusto

Amidst the Gràcia shabby-chic vibe, Gusto is a chilled spot to pop into for a late night drink. It is a silky smooth minimalist hideout where quirky signoras and their eccentric amigos enjoy the DJ’s electro beat. If the contemporary sleek design is too de rigueur for you, head to the unique back room where the floor is covered in sand.

La Terrrazza

If you want to groove to some of the world’s best DJs and wouldn’t mind some eye candy on the side, look no further than La Terrrazza, a summertime club on Montjuic. Located in a castle, boasting a fabulous terrace with electrifying views, there is no better place to feel the beat of Barcelona.

what we think

You may recognise Gaudi’s masterpieces of La Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell, La Pedrera and others from the plethora of photos splashed across travel guides. These colourful images are captivating. However, photos do not evoke the same emotions as actually being in Barcelona, a city with an electric energy - morning, noon and night. Its shopping districts are diverse, combining charm and trend and the small cobblestone streets hide many undiscovered gems. Some of the world’s most imitated tapas bars were created in Barcelona and manage to combine tradition with contemporary design and a hip crowd. The beach is certainly worth discovering, either during the day to soak up the Spanish sun or at night when the marina transforms into a buzz of beach-fronted clubs with famous DJs. Add to this, the funky shopping, hip bars and the emerging luxury boutique hotels – many with rooftop sanctuaries - and you’ll agree that Barcelona is a hedonist’s paradise.
