Barcelona, my top hot spots

Ok without any further due, here is my list! What else to say than “Barcelona, yo the quiero!!”


Tickets is a tapas restaurant that will blow your mind. Not only are the tapas exceptional but the restaurant is owned by none other than the Adrià brothers, of elBulli! It is run mostly by Albert Adrià who was the pastry chef at elBulli, as well as part of its core team for over 20 years along with his brother Ferran Adrià and Oriol Castro. 

I’m not gonna lie to you. Getting a table there is short of a miracle. The only way to do it is through the reservations system on their website and it is booked solid for several months. So think ahead – at least three months!


After the success of the Tickets and the cocktail lounge 41º, the tandem formed by Albert and Ferran Adria and the Iglesias bothers did it again with Pakta. The novelty is in its cuisine, a nikkei Peruvian – Japanese fusion  and, of course, the design of the space.

El Nacional, one of the trendiest gourmet space in Barcelona

The space, formerly a parking lot, will work as a dining venue organized by different themes: fish, meat, snacks, sweets, cocktails and drinks, as well as an oyster & champagne bar. There is also a terrace where you can drink your favorite coffee  / tea while deciding on what to buy from the gourmet store.

The interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán recreated the Barcelona of the thirties and forties in a relaxed, cosmopolitan and trendy atmosphere.

Located at the heart of Passeig de Gràcia, it reflects Barcelona’s social and cultural life.

Located in the bario de Gracia,  Momo is an Asian restaurant that instead of doing fusion cuisine, they simply take the best dishes from each country represented. The chef and owner, Jordi Brau, lived in Southeast Asia for seven years, and came back with recipes for tuna tartare, gyoza and nems which, for price and quality, set them apart from the rest. As they say here, ‘tapas with chopsticks’. (copy @Timeout)

Big Fish

Located in Barcelona’s district of El Born, Big Fish is a restaurant entirely devoted to fish that welcomes us in a modern, elegant space. The quality of its food equals the beautiful setting as well as crowd it attracts. A huge favorite!

Bar Mutis

Become friends with those who can put your name on the list! If you can manage that and find the secret door to the spiral staircase, then you are officially a cool Cat! And you infiltrated Barcelona’s most secretive bar!!

What makes it so cool is the fact that Mutis is a converted flat (& sound-proofed) in a building with other apartments with residents living their life as if they weren’t next to the hottest bar with the best cocktails and most amazing music! Just brace yourself  – not cheap!
