Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Barcelona

Ginger
Eclipse
W Barcelona is the most anticipated hotel opening in the city's history, so it makes sense that the all-encompassing destination station would have a few nice watering holes thrown into its heady mix.
Ra Bar
A café with real energy and charm, Ra is perfect for a lazy afternoon, or alternatively, to kick-start a wild night out…
Salero
Although you could slink into Salero for a sumptuous supper we prefer it as a fabulous place for late-night cocktails. Its romantic atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for date night.
Xix Bar
A mighty selection of gins in a tiny former milk shop. Who would've thought?
The White Bar
Hotel bars can be hit or miss, but the White Bar - attached to the Chic & Basic Hotel on Calle Princesa - is an excellent place to head pre-dinner, post-dinner or even for dinner.
W Living Room
As you'd expect of a watering hole inside W Barcelona, W Living Room offers a stylish, sophisticated space in which to kick back, relax and watch the well-heeled world go by.
Pla
Whilst Pla could be classed as a restaurant we highly recommend it for an early evening glass of wine or cleverly crafted cocktail. Gothic interiors add panache.
Manchester Bar
With music from its namesake city in the UK and cheap beer before 10pm - the Manchester Bar is certainly unique for Barcelona...
La Vinya del Senyor
According to those in the know - that would be us - La Vinya del Senyor offers up the best wine list in the city. The rustic environment meanwhile affords diners an authentic Catalonian experience despite its shockingly shabby exterior.
L’Antic Teatre
One of the only beer gardens in Barcelona, L'Antic Teatre is the perfect place to escape from the fast pace of the city, catch some sun and feel like a local. 
Gimlet
The perfect place to come for pre-club drinks before painting the rest of the town red, Gimlet has become something of a local institution among cocktail-loving locals.
Bar Pepino
Eccentric décor and an eclectic mix of clientele - Bar Pepino is the perfect spot for a slightly more unusual night out in Barcelona... 
Bar Lobo
Drinking and eating is more a full-time job in Barcelona than a casual pastime, which is why we love Bar Lobo, which does it oh-so well.
Andu
Still relatively unknown with tourists Andu provides a real taste of Catalonian lifestyle with lethal cocktails served up in atmospheric surroundings. The perfect place to escape the pretension of the more tourist-crammed bars in the city.
Albert and Ferran Adria open new haunts in Barcelona
Brothers and culinary masters Albert and Ferran Adria will open a new eatery and cocktail bar in Barcelona. Tickets and 41 Degrees are on Av. del Parallel.
Eclipse Barcelona is the Hottest New Bar in Town
Housed in the W Hotel, Eclipse Barcelona offers unparalleled views and delicious cocktails to boot.
