A mini Barcelona guide, here it comes:
Bimba & Lola
Carrer de València, 272
I love this store. Super chic and effortless cool. Wish we had it in Stockholm!
In El Raval area I found this vintage store where I basically wanted everything. Deeply regret not getting the red long pleated skirt…
I fell in love with this café. Sitting in the sun spotting trendy people and ordering soy cappo or vino works pretty good for me. When I found out the place was Australian the coffee explained it all. I actually use to have a crush on Austrailian coffee shops out in Park Slope in New York (I know I’m swifting city but it’s true). Anyway that made me really happy.

Did you know Barcelona is gin city? Well I didn’t until my friends took me to Boca Grande. Dangerously strong Hendrick’s cocktails yet delicious. What’s really cool is that this place has it all – a rooftop, a boqueria restaurant, a sophisticated colonial inspired bar area and a unexpeceted bathroom. Think a bathroom full of mirrors that’s becoming a night club after 1am. Absolutely nuts.
Looking for a treat? Well this is the place to go. Imagine tons of candy in superb cans.

A cute industrial looking bodega with delicous fried artichokes. Perfect for a date!
Barcelona is known for it’s Boqueria and I think you should definitely go. Even though touristic there’s so much good commodities you can get your hands on.
