Couldn’t find another travel thread that covers Barcelona. What’s good, folks? I’ve compiled a list of beer places (there’s a Mikkeller bar! And BierCab looks amazing) but will accept all recommendations. Also, I will have a small baby in tow - will this limit where we can go? I’m told the Spanish are very child friendly, but having been kicked out of two pubs in the UK due to their licensing, I’m worried we won’t be allowed in anywhere if the rules are a bit different.
I was there a few weeks ago, you don’t actually get a decent view of the city unless you go into the castle which is about €5 I think. There’s nothing much in the castle, you’re essentially paying for the view but it is very nice. To get up there you need to take the funicular (can use a metro ticket) and then the cable car. From the cable car station you can walk along to the Olympic stadium and there’s some nice parks too.
There’s a little side street with bars all next to each other, one is called Sub Rosa, another Nevermind and there’s a couple of others. I don’t know if it’s everyday but at least on sundays they all have happy hours at around 5/6ish and sell mojitos for about €2.
That Gopal vegan place is round the corner too, that whole square (or triangle as I think they call it) has loads of vegan/veggie places that are good.
