Party Earth Review Flying in the face of the earthy vibe of most of Gràcia’s drinking and eating dens, La Baignoire is a distinctly ritzy wine bar much loved by the chatty denizens of this charismatic neighborhood and a sign of the district’s ongoing gentrification. The bar’s black, chocolate, and gold color scheme, Baroque-patterned wallpaper ... more

Party Earth Review The candlelit chandelier, carved wooden chairs, and scattered ottomans create an intimate atmosphere for mingling, but it’s the impressive tapestry of a ferocious jaguar in the rainforest that first hints at Q Bar’s Peruvian theme.

Party Earth Review A local favorite for more than 150 years – making it the second-oldest bar in town – Casa Almirall is a cozy bar that appears to have changed very little since it first opened in the 1860s.

Barcelona is one of the most Romantic cities in Europe and there is certainly no shortage of date ideas. Between quaint cafés, upscale restaurants, and fun and unique bars there are plenty of date ideas in Barcelona for those couples looking for a classic evening out.
Every neighborhood in Barcelona offers venues that are sure to spark conversation or set the mood for newbies and old timers. Whether it’s the pirate themed Hook or Venetian cocktail bar Sub Rosa, Barri Gótic is full of bars for daters. El Born’s Rubi Bar or El Raval’s Oddland are dimly lit and cozy comfortable bars that are ideal for date night as well.
If the weather is too nice to be cooped up in the confines of a bar or restaurant, then an evening walk into one of Barri Gótic’s plazas, Plaça del Rei or Plaça Sant Felip Neri, will give couples a chance to step into history in two distinct yet equally intimate settings.
A trip for two to Plaça Espanya on Friday or Saturday night for the fountain show will give viewers an incredible display of water, lights, and music. The towering fountains are picturesquely placed at the foot of Montjuic in one of the most famous parts of Barcelona and one of the most popular spots for daters on a weekend night.
