From chic wine bars and modern restaurants, to stylish design stores and boutiques, El Born is a funky mix of food, fashion, arts and excitement. The heart and soul of the area is the picturesque tree-lined Passeig del Born, cutting a vibrant path of outdoor dining and drinking options from the 19th-century Mercat del Born up to the beautiful Santa Maria del Mar church. Bring your own drinks and join the locals as they soak up the casual vibe on the benches and pavements – your very own low-cost outdoor bar!
Night and day, there is constant energy and vibrancy running through the narrow streets of this neighbourhood, as shops close their shutters and the many bars and restaurants start opening their doors for a steady stream of locals and visitors. For a quick escape, the Parc De La Citudella is Barcelona’s largest green space and a perfect retreat for picnics and study breaks.
EAT: Mosquito – Crowded, chaotic and loud – with one of the best vibes in town and amazing Chinese dim sum, Mosquito is a hit with the locals for a reason. Order a selection of delicious dumplings washed down with a cold beer and sit back and watch the passing parade.
DRINK: Mercat del Born – This 19th-century market building is a stunning mix of glass and steel, recently renovated and reopened as a cultural center and museum after the ruins of the old La Ribera neighborhood were discovered underneath its expansive floor. Relax with a signature beer in the centre’s own restaurant and bar – El 300 del Born – and reflect on the unique history of Barcelona lying just under your feet.
DO: Museu Picasso – Housing one of the most extensive collections of artworks by Pablo Picasso, this museum is a must-see for art admirers as well as architecture lovers. The building is actually five interlinked medieval stone mansions – offering a unique mix of amazing art set around stone staircases and hidden courtyards.
