El Born Area


El Born is another of Barcelona's older zones but nevertheless it's also one of the trendiest and happening places to drink, shop and eat. The most logical place to start your night is the main street (Passeig del Born) as here you'll find a plethora of everything from large pubs to more outlandish and trendy cocktail bars. This area also has plenty of places to eat from quick stop pizza joints to more upmarket restaurants and plenty of cafes and bars that also serve up food.

Prices in this area, are of course quite high by local standards but if you are travelling from Britain for example, you'll still find drinking and eating here very reasonable. A definite bonus about this area is that there are plenty of terraces outside, although you might have to wait for a few minutes or so and stand up to the locals who don't quite have the same decorum as us Northern Europeans when it comes to queueing up. Also you should notice that it's a stone throw from the beach area (Barceloneta) if you happen to be still dolled up in your beachwear.

All in all then this is the kind of neighbourhood that you'll go to spend the entire evening, pampering yourself to good food, a lively street atmosphere and many, many cocktails - I'm sure!
