Weekend plans that will make you think you’re on vacation
Normally what we miss the most when we come back from vacation is the beach, beachfront bars, and dinner by moonlight over the ocean… for this reason we have a fresh idea that’s fun and, of course, beachy! At the Moll de la Marina in Barcelona, close to the Ciutadella stop of the metro line 4 (yellow line), we find an enticing restaurant with ocean air and fresh, highly recommended dishes. This spot, called Red Fish, has a terrace with views of the sea as well as a delicious vermouth you can enjoy before dinner. You can also enjoy their delicious shellfish or fresh fish and rice for dinner alongside the seashore. You’ll forget you’ve gone back to the real world and think you’re still on vacation.
Summer nights, the moon, the stars, romantic music… who said that going back to work in Barcelona is a drag? It’ll be anything but a drag if you take an incredible visit to Casa Batlló, especially if it’s with live music and views of Barcelona. No, you don’t have to be a celebrity to spend a night on the rooftop terrace of Casa Batlló, but you do have to pay an entrance fee. Under the name Noches Mágicas, Casa Batlló organizes an night that includes a visit to the rooftop of the monument, a couple of drinks, a smartguide or video guide about the emblematic work of Antonio Gaudi and an hour-long live concert. The visit starts at 8 p.m. and goes until 9, when the concert begins.
