...because of a glimpse of the solar eclipse...

...through the clouds and the rain, we were granted a few magic moments to see this rare occurance.(And through sheer luck, I managed to get a photo of it!)

...because of my new local, Casa Lolea...

...the vermuteria, cafe and tapas bar is located in Sant Pere Més Alt, by the quaint little Passatge Sert. Open all day, this pretty and chic place is a highlight on the street; serving vermut, wine, their artisinal sangría and tapas all day. (Even better, is that it is close to me and my new favourite place to go.)

...because of the new and sumptuous El Nacional...


Located down a little laneway off Paseo de Gracia, El Nacional- once a run-down car parking space- has been remodelled as the new glamorous and innovative place to have a coffee, to have a wine or to dine. There are a variety of different zones within the space - 4 restaurants and 4 bars - offering a variety of culinary and drinking options. The industrialist building, which first opened as a Theatre (1870-1900),has also been a fabric factory, a a car dealership and a car parking space, and it now has a new life as a beautiful dining space.
