BARCELONA AGENDA 6.6.16-12.6.16

This week we wanted to do something special  so decided to dedicate the agenda to foodies and drinkers in Barcelona. Enjoy it!

MONDAY 6TH JUNE | SETMANA DE LES TERRASSES

As soon as June arrives it feels pretty much like summer in Spain. To celebrate the good weather Hilton Hotel is celebrating the week of the terrace at Puro Beach. They say is the best urban Oasis in the city…well, I guess I will need to go and check it out…

On Monday you can attend an alcoholic cocktail making master class…. if I look back and think about every Monday  at work this seems like a genius idea to start the week with!

More information about the event here.

TUESDAY 7TH JUNE |MERIENDA AT CHöK

As I write this agenda I get so excited to see the word “June” everywhere! For the past 6 years I spent my summers in Sweden or London while studying and working. This is the first “real summer” in a while and couldn’t be any happier!

One of the best things about the weather is that you can have lunch outdoors! This is how a couple of weeks ago we saw some people with a very cute packaging walking around and taking out some amazingly looking sweets.

My friend told me that the shop is called Chök and almost run over there to find out what they do. Their window is better than any clothes shop, they are super friendly and kept up with the 1000 of pictures I took. Now I am looking into their website and almost dying because the shop is too far from me to get some of their Kronuts… If you want to know what I am talking about check this link  , or even better, visit one of their shops!

P.D: don´t watch the video on their website if you are on a strict diet.

 WEDNESDAY 8TH OF JUNE | BARCELONA DESIGN WEEK

Barcelona Design Week arrives to Barcelona one more year as a meeting point for design and business. They have been one of the main events in Barcelona since 2006 thanks to their vast agenda  full of workshops, conferences, exhibitions, talks, artistic events, networking, and of course, parties.

FRIDAY 10TH OF JUNE | WATERMELON AND FRIENDS

This party is not about eating but has a fruit name to go with this week´s theme! They also have electronic music, drinks and an open terrace, so what else can you ask to a Friday night in Barcelona?

electronic music, drinks and open terrace

Since I am quite close to the my 30´s and after partying quite hard since my early teen years there are two kind of parties that I still love and can manage. First of all are day parties, there is something magical about having a few drinks and dancing during day time and you know it… Second of all are terrace parties, the only thing that make me quit my hibernation period and make my friends shut up after insisting for a few days that they wan to go out.

SATURDAY 11TH OF JUNE | MATSURI-IV JAPANISE TRADITIONAL FESTIVAL

Did I already say this is a foodies week? Hope your stomach and wallet can handle it!

If you are an Asian food lover as I am this is the perfect plan for Saturday! They also have some activities, music and dance, but let´s be realistic, we are mainly going there because of the food, specially if you go out on Friday

Matsuri Japan will be hosting the event during Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th of this month at Plaza del Mar (in my beloved Barceloneta neighbourhood). Entrance is for free!

SUNDAY 12TH OF JUNE | EL JARDIN DE MONTJUIC AT LA CASETA DEL MIGDIA

Last but not least plan of the week with a barbecue and live music at La Caseta del Migdia, one of the places with best views in Barcelona is inaugurating the summer season with a special party in the middle of the nature.

That was it for this week. I Recently I moved to Gracia neighborhood and so far I am loving it, hopefully I will be sharing with you the new discoveries very soon! On the not that bright side of Gracia, my grandma is calling me every day and asking to stay away from “that people making noise and breaking things in the street”… Grandma, I will be fine!

If you would like to be part of this agenda or have any super cool plan, please share with us! ☮ & ♥
