As far as European cities go, Barcelona definitely has some hipster vibes going on. From it’s funky architecture to it’s delicious food (that’s open late!) and craft beer bars, you’ll be in hipster heaven.
My first impression of Barcelona was that it reminded me a bit of San Francisco. Mostly in that there are a lot of young twenty somethings around, everyone wants to go out to eat and drink, and everyone seems to be having fun.
Here is where all the cool kids hang out, eat, and drink!
Coasta Pacifico – Mexican food with an awesome interior, they’ve got some really cool murals and neon signs going on.
Bar del Pla – Super cutesy tapas bar, amazing food and wine, and local beers on tap.
Sagardi – Traditional Barcelona tapas, you can go down the counter line picking things out which is fun and all the food is delicious!
Casa Lolea – This is the place for sangria! Amazing selection of different sangrias and delicious appetizers.
Leka – Traditional Spanish food with a modern twist, everything is organic and focused on “honest food”.
Mosquito – Sort of tapas, sort of dim sum – its Spanish style dumplings and its amazing!
El Nacional – It’s sort of like a mall, but a food mall. There are four different restaurants serving up original recipes from around the Iberian Peninsula, plus four bars for beer, wine, cocktails, and oysters!

Best Spots For Pictures
Streets of El Born – The skinny little alleyway streets of El Born can make for some pretty cool looking photos. Some streets have string lights hanging above them while other have little flags, every little alley is unique.
Cactus Garden – Aren’t all hipster obsessed with cacti? Get some fun and unique shots among our spiny friends.
Park Guell – Crazy architecture and bright colors what could be better for a photo? Just remember to get there early because it gets super crowded during the day!
Bunker De Carmel – Get some awesome city views as your backdrop, because you can really see the whole city from up there. Best time to go is sunrise to catch the sun coming up over the water, but sunset is pretty gorgeous too.
