I have not lived in Barcelona for long, but I am already filled with impressions of this beautiful and ancient Spanish city. The variety of languages, smells, and colors here is hard to imagine in one place, making Barcelona truly exceptional.

This is also a city of modern art, with historical landmarks at every turn. You'll want to keep your camera ready, but also be mindful of street thieves. Barcelona is home to cozy coffee shops, restaurants, antique shops, and an abundance of bread at every corner. Stylish Spaniards of all ages fill the streets. The city boasts dozens of museums and art galleries, offering countless and unique leisure opportunities, making you want to return again and again.

Situated on the Mediterranean coast, Barcelona is famous for Gaudí's masterpieces and Art Nouveau architecture, marking it as one of Europe's most stylish capitals. Many people come here to find themselves. Indeed, Barcelona is very international, attracting creative individuals and offering the perfect mix for living—be it infrastructure, climate, leisure, education, or culture.

As a fan of electronic music and nightlife, I'd like to share some of the clubs I enjoyed:

Red58 Club

This club has perfectly tuned sound and reasonable bar prices, offering a great and secure experience. Located in the heart of the city, it hosts the best DJs from around the world, playing minimal, techno, and tech music styles.

Macarena Club

Located in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, this small club features local and international artists daily. It has a friendly atmosphere and a full house. An interesting feature is that the DJ stands lower than the crowd, with everyone above and behind the DJ.

La Textil

Once a textile factory, this place now houses one of the best breweries with incredible cuisine and vinyl music played by DJs on the first floor. The basement hosts a club with great sound, where my friends and I often party.

Best Vinyl Store:

Dancing Vinyl

This store has an interesting concept: every weekend, a stream is recorded where a DJ, local or international, selects unknown vinyl records and plays them live. I once participated in this project, and it was a unique experience playing without my records and headphones. Here's a link to my recorded set at this store: Watch my set.

I could talk about the food forever: Catalan bread with tomato, seafood paella, leeks with romesco sauce, butifarra with beans, black rice, and of course, croissants—available in abundance throughout the city. However, as someone who lived in China for five years, there's nothing better to me than Asian street food. The more unremarkable and modest the restaurant, the better.
