Daniel Orpi - City Finest - Barcelona

Some of my best memories are from days and nights out in Barcelona’s clubs, where my love for electronic music was born, so the first 2 places I will write about are clubs.

Barca place

Input: Great club located at the El Poble Espanyol, an iconic architectural museum in Barcelona. This location makes for a unique club with great space. Input features primarily electronic music, non-commercial house music and techno music.

La Macarena: Intimate house and techno club located right in the heart of the Gotico neighbourhood. The place is really small with the Dj booth is in the middle of the dance floor. Everytime I went there it was proper vibes, is definitely a great place to visit.

Somnia Fx Cocktail bar: The decor is so cool and unique, it’s circus themed. The cocktails are specially good, and they have individual performances.

Discos Paradiso: One of my favourite places in the city to dig for records. It’s very easy to navigate and in here you will find the latest in electronic music. Great spot to get your vinyl fix.

Not everything is about the music (but almost!) so I would also recommend:

Monserrat Monastery: A place that is not only very beautiful, surrounded by mountains, but Its museum also holds an impressive collection of more than 1,300 works of art from artists such as Picasso, Dali and Monet. This place is very meaningful for me as you can see on the video of my song “Angel De La Guarda”.

Sagrada Familia: Probably the most famous spot in Barcelona, It’s a must while visiting the city. it’s genuinely breath-taking.

La Boqueria Market: Perched right in the center of La Rambla, this bustling market was built on the ruins of an old convent called Sant Josep. Its origins go as far back as the 1200s. Go early, be ready to wait and to eat some incredible food.

And last but not least:

Camp Nou: I am not a big football fan, but Camp Nou is worth a visit to experience the pride Catalans have for the FC Barcelona team, It is the largest stadium in Europe with a capacity of almost 100.000 seats
