Barcelona In Style With Blanca Miró
We are very proud to call Barcelona our home and the city where VASQUIAT was born. It’s Mediterranean, relaxed, and the endless, delicious sunny days are to die for. Blanca Miró our fashion director and co-founder tells us about her favourite hang outs in the city.
WHERE TO DINE
La Cuina d’en Garriga
If you’re in the mood to eat typical Spanish or Catalan food then this is place! I love to come here on the weekend when I’m in a local mood and it’s located next to the super beautiful street, Enric Granados. They have a pasta with pancetta iberica which is delicious!
WHERE TO BRUNCH
For a heavenly brunch this place is the best! Eggs in any way you like, sweet treats and great juices! I love to come here on a Saturday morning after a night partying. Make sure you try the shakshuka eggs and the Tommy’s green juice!
WHERE TO PARTY
Apolo is one of the biggest and most famous night clubs in Barcelona. There are often great DJ’s and you can dance all night until your feet fall off!
WHERE TO SHOP
Le Swing & Modulolab
I love vintage shopping! You can always find such gems for good prices and it’s much more exciting than normal shopping. When you find something special, you really feel like you’ve achieved something and what you’ve found is so unique. I love that feeling! Le Swing is great for clothes and Modulolab for furniture!
WHERE TO ART
There are lots of good galleries in Barcelona, but I prefer the smaller ones. I love the contemporary museum Alzueta Gallery. It’s a beautiful space featuring talented artists and fantastic exhibitions.
WHERE TO VIEW
Terraza Martínez & Montjuic
Terraza Martínez has great views and also great Paella! The mountain Montjuic, where Martínez is situated also has beautiful views. Walking up there just to see the views, or grabbing something to eat or drink is always a great plan!
WHERE TO EXPLORE
El Born & Eixample
El born is a beautiful neighbourhood, there are so many cute bars, restaurants, shops and narrow, tucked away streets to explore. Eixample is also a really fun neighbourhood with so many good restaurants and beautiful buildings.
