Hangover is an integral part of life in Barсelona and getting wasted during bar hopping in Raval is a must-do, especially taking into account quality cocktails and good wine for reasonable prices. In the morning ''sunglasses and advil" will be what you need according to Kanye West. However, Barcelona also boasts a great number of places to fight hangover. Here we'll try to find out what to do when you have a morning after, how to clear up your head and not screw it up.
A cozy restaurant by Parc de la Ciutadellais ruled by the Chilean chef Jaime and hostess Tara of the US – that’s where their filling branches, Eggs Benedict and refreshments come from. Order eggs with salmon, rose lemonade (adding vodka can be a good idea) or their famous Bloody Mary. Ideal spot for a hangover breakfast.
Rocas facing Barceloneta Beach
If laughing and smiling crowds on Barceloneta beaches annoy you and going to a farther beach is a challenge, walk to W hotel, climb the fence behind the last beach bar and get to the so-called rocas – rocks by the water loved by local skaters and youngsters. Choose a big and comfy rock and enjoy the view of the Barceloneta coast. And don't miss a padsurfing or pilates class by the local surf school – it is such a fun.
SPA El Aire Barcelona
The most beautiful and popular spa in central Barcelona is located at the heart of El Born district. Arab baths and relaxing massage, thermal pools and aromatherapy you will find it all here – add refreshments, fruit salad or a glass of kava with chocolate. The place is opened till 2 am Friday, which is something for Barcelona.
Barcelo Raval Roof Terrace
A unique Barcelona spot with panoramic view of the city. Just make yourself comfortable in cozy armchairs, benches or bar stools scattered around the roof of the hotel on Rambla del Raval. Guests and visitors are sipping expensive cocktails from plastic wine glasses and highballs listening to splashing sounds of a decorative pool and observing the city roofs. Take a stroll around – you will see all streets and squares of Barcelona, its major sights, beaches, the port, Tibidabo and Montjuïc, and peep at naked sun bathers on rooftop terraces of nearby houses.
Can Cisa Bar Brutal
This is the second location of Italian twins Stefano and Max Colombo. The concept is: vinoteque +bar+restaurant. They serve tapas in Italian way: fresh mortadella platter, parmesan or divine Sicilian olives. But their gem is wine, particularly homemade ecostuff. A sommelier will be happy to tell you about it and offer a set to taste. Another surprise is staff, as if they all have passed a certain audition – all inked with trendy beards and trademark smile. It is hard to resist coming back the next day and taking a couple of Catalan white home.
Verdi is one of the two movie theatres in Barcelona where you can watch films in the original. There is even a chance you can come across a Russian movie. The movie list mainly includes festival films, though they also do classic screenings. As the cinema is at the heart of the Catalan Gracia neighborhood, it is a real fun to watch a movie with Catalan subs.
