With the change in seasons comes more fun things to do in Barcelona. Here are some places to try this fall:
A hidden gem in the gothic district, the Harlem Jazz Club, (Comtessa de Sobradiel 8, barri Gótic) is a wonderfully intimate and richly decorated space of authentic jazz and blues. The live acts include internationally touring artists and local musicians, so pick yourself up a bottle of wine and enjoy mingling with the eclectic patrons. There is a great atmosphere with excellent acoustics and a burgundy palette, and you can dance to everything from Afro-Caribbean to flamenco fusion, Cuban, Brazilian or Bossa Nova beats with live music nearly every night.
The secrets of most bartenders will go with them to the grave, but Alberto Pizarro from Bobby Gin offers magazine le cool an insight into his magical elixirs. He has his own invention called the Hanky Panky, and says his perfect imaginary cocktail is a special Barcelona mix of cava from l’Eixample, mint from the mojitos of Barceloneta, a touch of absinthe from Raval, and the vermut of Gracia. If you feel like staying classic try their gin & tonic, the drink of the moment.
Free weekly magazine le cool features the hottest and hippest of cultural and leisure events, from concerts, movies and exhibitions to bars and restaurants.
