Barcelona,Lupara Bar: vacation in my hometown (2/7)

Sunday evening is not the most animated day in Barcelona,especially in winter.Even on a sunny day It’s cold but this weekend has been amazing,we reached 18ºC in the morning . As we had only two days left we took a stroll to the Borne, a very cultural and artistic area of the city.After discovering some hidden bars we drunk some cafés con leche ,to get warm at Lupara bar, just behind the Mercat del Born.I’ve been in that place a few times before and I always kept a good record , so it was a good moment to be back.There were not so many people as there is in Saturday night when their big and tasty mojitos , 5 euros, fly over the tables.They have two floors, if  it’s possible I always go to the top. I love seating at the sofas, but there is a terrace outside for the free souls and the smokers.The entry floor hosts an art collection on sale that they change almost every month.

note: I never ordered food or snacks so I can’t tell anything about it.

Barcelona,Bo de B: vacation in my hometown (1/7)

A few months ago I couldn’t imagine that I was going to be a tourist in my own town . Last week , friends from Chicago came to visit Barcelona so I decided to spend a couple of days with them.I didn’t have enough time to make a route so I decided to visit the places where I used to go and after, improvise a route. It’s difficult to avoid the touristic  places because Barcelona itself is a touristic city. Our first stop was at my favourite delicattessen , Bo de B .

It doesn’t matter  if you go at lunch time ,evening or night ,they always have the best dishes and sandwiches in Barcelona . The combination  of fresh vegetables and tasty chicken ,meat ,salmon or cheese makes you day perfect.The atmosphere is perfect for smart-tourists and artists.And the owner and the employes are very nice and they speak english if you need it. But try to speak spanish even for fun or practice. If you go once , you’ll soon be back for more.
