Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Barcelona

Wer-Haus
A chic concept store in Barcelona’s L’Eixample district, Wer-Haus has an on-site gallery and restaurant, as well as a book and clothes shop.
Le Boudoir
Small and intimate, Le Boudoir is stacked with delicate racks of knickers, bras and other lacey unmentionables.
Kling
This clothing shop is a popular choice for well-groomed Barcelona women, with two stores now ready and waiting to fill your wardrobe…
Momo
Lomography
Lomography is one of the most beautiful ways to capture memories, which is why this store on Calle Rosic is always brimming with creative types.
Coquette
Born to be beautiful' is the tagline at Coquette, an industrial-inspired space in the trendy shopping district of El Born.
Papabubble
Tucked away in the Gothic Quarter, Papabubble gives its many customers a delightful glimpse into the wonderful world of candy. Novelty items are almost too creative to destroy...
Mercat Fire de Bellcaire
As both the oldest and largest flea market in Barcelona, Mercat Fire de Bellcaire has tourists flocking in their bargain-hunting droves for an eclectic array of goods.
Mercabarna-Flor
Looking like something Brit designer Paul Smith might put together, this architectural wonder is, in fact, a flower market. Called Mercabarna-Flor, the market sells flowers across two-tiers of wonderfully-designed space. 
La Central
La Central provides an extensive collection of humanities books, ranging from anthropology to architecture, photography to philosophy. There's also a cafe upstairs with wifi which is perfect for settling in with a good book. 
Happy Pills
While we wouldn't recommend taking pills for every ache and pain, sometimes a little pick-me-up is all you need to lift your mood. Enter Happy Pills, a Spain-based company that sells its brilliant brand of 'Happy Pills' right here.
Fantastik
Bric-a-brac from South America, Asia and Spain.
Discos Paradiso
Clean, white record store that's a hipster's paradise (pun intended).
Ciclic
Magazine emporiums are a dying breed, but the concept is given a new lease of life at Ciclic, where the printed word is still hugely popular.
BSB
While there's generally not much need for warm rugs underfoot in sunny Spain, other parts of Europe are not so lucky. Which is why shoppers come to BSB Contemporary Rugs for fabulous floor coverings.
