Barcelona – September 2014

Hola mi chicas! Barcelona is a beautiful city and one that ticks every box for me!
It’s sheer passion for the glorious things in life such as art, food, wine and music make it a place I will keep going back to again and again.

At Can Paixano (La Xampanyeria), Carrer de la Reina Cristina, 7, 08003 Barcelona, Cava is just 1 euro a glass. Before 5pm you can get a bottle of cava for 5 euros. A bargain and really really good! The tapas here is also really special and although its very very busy at peak times, its a must go for anyone visiting Barcelona

L’Atelier had a very tasy selection of Pinchos (morsels on sticks) and at just 1.50 or 1 euros each. The Estrella Damn was 1.50 euro a glass too! A really cheap night out but without compromising on the Catalonian tapas amazingness

Tacon RojoCalle Ataulfo, 18, 08002 Barcelona, in the gothic quarter is some of the best tapas you will get in Barcelona. The ingredients are second to none and you can get a lovely local cava to wash it all down with. Not the cheapest of options, but well worth the money.

A little snack at a lovely and tiny bar called La Tete, Carrer de la Comtesssa de Sobradiel, 4, 08002 Barcelona. All of this for 9 euros and a lovely ending to the day
