Couples in search of an intimate and romantic evening, will find the Gran Teatre de Liceu to be a magical setting, whether you opt for a ballet, opera or recital.

If you prefer to steer clear of big chains and department stores, Barcelona is bursting with one-off boutiques that make your shopping experience that much more special.

For Eating Out
You’d be foolish to leave Barcelona without having tried some of the best selection of tapas available in the city. At Tickets, Chef Ferran Adria has taken the traditional tapas and created truly innovative and avant-garde versions, including home-salting tuna belly painted with Iberian cured ham fat and liquid ravioli with Payoyo cheese and much more.
If you’re in Barcelona for any longer than a couple of days, you’re very likely to have heard the name Razzmatazz mentioned when deciding where to go out at night. And with good reason: this immense, distinctly industrial space is a hub for all trendy partygoers. The inimitable atmosphere is hard to find elsewhere.
