Anna's favorite spots in El Raval

Barcelonaloving Anna shares her best tips to El Raval, her favorite part of the city.

Anna Collin has traveled to Barcelona every summer since she was a child and lived there for a couple of years in her twenties. The perfect mix of restaurants, amazing architecture, exciting night life, friendly people and not at least, great weather, has made Barcelona her home away from home and Anna travels there at least five times a year.

Caravelle

This is where you find the best brunch in Barcelona. The menu changes every now and then, since the innovative chefs keep trying out new things. It doesn’t matter if you try something sweet or something savory, it’s always delicious. Don’t come too hungry on a Sunday since there is usually a line to get a table.

Bar Victoria

The typical Spanish bar next door. They have a small terrace in the cute street C/ del Àngels. Sit down and have a beer and some tapas and just enjoy the atmosphere. Follow up with a dinner in one of the restaurants on the same street, Silenus has great food and Rosa de Raval is a crowded Mexican place with cheap mojitos.

Hotel Barceló Raval

The hotel located at Rambla del Raval has a roof top bar. The bar itself is nothing special, but the oval shaped hotel offers a spectacular 360 º view of the city. Go there at sunset, have a glass of cava and enjoy.

Carrer de Joaquin Costa

If you want to go bar hopping, start from C/Carme and work your way up in C/ Joaquin Costa. Start at 33/45 for a cocktail and move on to the crowded hipster place Bar Olimpic for a beer. Have a little break in the cozy smaller bar Oddland and finish at Betty Ford’s before hitting the clubs.

Moog

This night club has been around since the mid-90s and is open seven nights a week. Downstairs they play house and techno book quite big names. But if you just want to dance and have a laugh, go upstairs to the smaller room called Villa Rosa with the legendary resident DJ Purpur. He mixes The Cure with Spice Girls and Madonna and to watch him DJ-ing is a show in itself.
