Stay: Hotel Brummell.
We set up camp in the west side of town in a quiet, less known to tourists part of Barcelona called El Poble-Sec. Well, less known than La-Rambla anyway.
This small 20 room hotel was exactly what we needed for the stay. Beautiful outdoor spaces, walking distance to everything we needed and finished with all the little design details we, and you have come to expect from a 4 star design focused hotel.
Our room was the mountain-facing deluxe room that was more than enough for the two of us. With a large bed, and the best damn pillows we have had on the trip, a work desk for some quick emails or make-up-touch-ups and a couch to (let’s face it) tearing your suitcase a part looking for that other loafer.
This hotel made our trip to Barcelona so good that we decided not to leave the hotel for the last 24hours to soak up all the Brummell goodness before we left.
Eat: La Pubilla.
Nestled in Gracia, the less visited neighbourhood - you will find probably one of our favourite restaurants globally. La Pubilla, isn’t going to win awards for its design, fit-out or any wizz-bang fancy restaurant tricks you’ll find on Chef table, but it will win every award for where it matters - the food, and the experience.
Located next to the local market, the chefs at La Pubilla create a new menu each day with what is fresh, and available for the day from the market that’s literally 10 meters away. There is 3 sittings. 1pm-2pm-3pm and a set menu with a few choices. You can choose from 3 entrees, 3 mains and 3 deserts. Simple. Fresh. Delicious.
Oh, and you get a wine or beer with that too - all for 16E .
