Am heading to Barcelona in 3 weeks with my boyfriend and another couple and wondering if anybody has any ideas of interesting things to do, outside the usual gaudi obvious touristy spots. We have been there before, just last april and stayed down by the beach but we are staying a road off the ramblas now.
Any good nightclubs/restaurants anybody can suggest.
Help would be greatly appreciated!!!
I've been to Barcelona a couple of times in the past 18 months and as you say the Gaudi sites like Casa Mila, Parc Guell and Sagrada Familia are amazing and otherwise i would recommend the Monjuic Area by the MNAC Art Museum, and i also heard Montserrat Mountains are sensational as you go up in a cable car and can see views across the city.
Unfortunately as yet i didnt have a chance to check out any bars or clubs but ive heard and read that the Olimpic Village by the beaches (close to Colon Monument) has some excellent bars and restaurants with decent prices too.
Also if you do fancy a trip to see FC Barcelona play at Nou Camp Stadium you wont regret it as thats something you will remember for a long time.
Hope this helps
Don't miss the guided tour at the Palau de La Musica Catalana. Amazing. People say Fundacion Miró is very nice, though I've never been there. I liked Cervejaria Catalana and the El Born neighborhood.
You can always make small trips, like Figueres, where there is a Salvador Dali Museum. And if the weather is good, Cadaques, a nice little beach town.
moog, city hall, nitsa, razzmattazz, raum
those are the best, seriously
stay away from touristy clubbing area aka barceloneta.

Hey,Guys,i was wondering if you can help me,my collegues&i were wondering where you stayed in Barcelona...?(There's 5 of us)
Thank You In Advance...Peace&Love
i stayed here
this was 2 weeks ago.
this is actually a 3 star hotel at a very very good price.
its right by El Born district near barri gotic (3 min walk)
i recommend highly.
We are staying in the grand central hotel, but we tried to get the Atlantis hotel on Las Ramblas which looked lovely & for half the price!

Could you give me any more info on hte salvadoe dali museum, I have heard about this, have you been there?
would have to agree with absolut1, the moog is a cool place. there's also the apolo, thats just the name of the venue where nitsa is. thye have other clubs other nights. its a great night out, especially if you know the guy who runs it, we were there recently and stayed at the hotel roma reail in placa real. it was okay, except for all the noise from the placa, but it was excelently located.
some other suggestions for nights out in Barcelona are the Harlem Jazz Club (when I was living there 2 years ago there was a fantastic Flamenco Fusion band that played there every sunday - don't know if that's still happening tho) and also the Pipa club in Plaza Real - this is a fantastic little bar that stays open til 5 or 6 (most close at 3 and then you have to pay entry into a club after that.) You have to know where to look for it though - there's a doorbell on the western corner of la Plaza Real, it just says "pipa" on it. Ring it and someone will come down and let you in, the bar's on the second or third floor!
Also - if you're looking to get away from all of the stag and hen parties on La Rambla, head up to Gracia. There are loads of fantastic little bars and clubs all around there, and some really good restaurants too - and it's cheaper than the Ciutat Vella area. Annoyingly, I can't remember any of the names of these places in Gracia, but believe me they're there! Have fun,
