....because of the little shop of restoration, ViraVolta....




 




...ViraVolta, a place where furniture is given a new life - by you or by the team. You can buy something restored or take to the workshop yourself and resurrect your own piece - a perfect space, especially for those who don't have it at home. A charming little store filled with vintage treasures.

...because of the cool ceveseria, Vinitus...



 


 





... one of my all time favourite tapas bars (and also the first one I ever went to), Ceveseria Catalana, has opened a cool cousin on Consell de Cent called Vinitus. The same tasty tapas, efficent service but in a uber chic setting. Good for lunch, dinner or anytime of the afternoon for a wine and a tapas. Definitely a new favourite!

....because of really good coffee at True Artisan Coffee....

 

 

  

 





...having been a barista and having had a cafe - I appreciate a good coffee, which isn't always too easy to find in Barcelona. However, I recently discovered, conveniently close to home, the True Artisan Cafe which is all about excellent coffee...and their machines- with the added bonus of a friendly barista.

... and I thought flamenco was just in the South! 
Flamenco Barcelona has just opened in Teatro Principal in Las Ramblas and is 45minutes of spectacular Flamenco! A mesmerising immersion into the dance and songs of the gitanos...I left clapping my hands (palmas) and stamping my feet (taconeando)....
