Barcelona

i'm 29 years old visiting Barcelona for 7 nights in a 4 star hotel close to the beach.

what am i in for ? and what are things worth doing in a week.

i'm the kind of person who likes comfort, luxury, food, girls swimming and music.

don't like walking in big cities because that bores the hell out of me

        That's a based move tho.

        But i'm curious, we have threads about people being scared to travel alone, and you chad book 7 days alone with no plan whatsoever.

          well i think i have an idea, most of my time will be spent at the beach area, either swimming, partying at beach nightclubs or eating at fancy restaurants, perhaps i'll check la sagrada familia in a day.

          but i'm wondering if i'm missing some fun

        don't eat at any place that has tourists, the same like everywhere else. You'll get scammed for a shitty paella and wine. Also, avoid moors and morons if you look like a scammable retard

    I was there solo recently but I think you and I travel differently, I really like walking around cities. Check resident advisor for good electronic music and show up to the club after midnight. I think the Joan Miro museum was really cool, even if you don't go in (which I think you should) that area is pleasant and on a slight hill so some of the geezers get weeded out. The Picasso museum is worth popping your head into as well. It you're into it, buy some weed and go to the art museums while listening to music through headphones, it's very relaxing. Not having to listen to dumb ass tour groups and bad commentary is key. Good food is pretty easy to find if you avoid the obvious tourist traps. Don't get paella at a place that advertises it and, as I'm sure you know, restaurants with an english menu are generally crap as well. It's definitely a touristy city which can be frustrating. I hope you have fun anon

    You chose the wrong place anon. Europe has a lot of incredible fucking beaches and laid back beach culture. The problem with most of them however is that there's not much to do outside of them- usually just clubs, bars and restaurants.

    Barcelona is a city first and foremost. The beach culture definitely isn't BCNs strong point. There are a lot of good bars beachside though, also some of the most beautiful women in the world too.

    To enjoy Barcelona make sure you

    >Plan out your days - know what you're going to be doing and where you're going to be doing it.
    Barcelona is a big place with a lot going on. It's good to have an idea what part of the city you're going to be at for the day, rather than just aimlessly wondering around trying to find a good spot. It's big. Same goes for where you're going to be drinking/eating - as for my next point.

    >Vet where you're going to visit
    Barcelona is home of the restaurant scam (and a lot of other scams too). Lots of places along La Ramblas and in the main tourist areas, are places owned by Pajeets/Pakis with one purpose.

    They'll serve you a cheap dish that they've just microwaved and charge you normal restaurant prices. I remember the first time I was in Barcelona and I fell for this, I couldn't finish the food it was that shitty. They'll also have things like pepsi on the menu without a price, except when it comes out it's basically a fucking stein of coke and they'll charge you like €9 for it. They're also known for literally having thieves that will steal your shit when you leave your table.

    This is a really easy scam to fall for because, unlike other scams which require a decent level of ignorance, a fancy looking restaurant in a central location doesn't seem like it would be a problem. People who know Barcelona well will tell you all about this.

      >Food

      Unironically probably the best city in Europe outside of London and Paris for dining. A lot of incredible restaurants, Michelin Starred ones too since you mentioned luxury. There's also a lot of authentic Catalan restaurants, but as I said previously, do your research beforehand, this is key.

      >Bars

      Barcelona has AMAZING small dive bars. Again, do your research, but a good night is hopping from one to another and feeling the vibe in each place. Clubs in Barcelona are great too, a lot of them run until like 7am. Barcelona is a real international city where things run very much into the night. Nevermind and Two Schmucks are both good bars worth going to, both close fairly late.

      >Girls

      Barcelona is a good city to hook up in but is home to two certain types of women. First is the feminist/social activist local type. Second is the jumped up instathot that thinks she's better than you. This is what I gather. In regards to hookers, it's pretty abundant across the whole city, ESPECIALLY if you're into South American girls. I fucked a thick assed 18 year old Cuban girl last time I was there.

      now we talkin brah, i heard weed sellers are scammers selling ordinary plants or low quality shit ? where did you get yours ?

      I don't smoke weed myself, but a friend of mine who I last went to BCN with does. There are lots of legal weed dispensaries/clubs across the city. You pay a joining fee and bring ID, then you're allowed in for usually a year. These are fairly abundant across the city and I wouldn't buy it from Africans.

      Realistically though, the weed the Africans are selling are probably also from the vendors. They do the same with beer, since it's illegal to sell after a certain time in stores in Barcelona, the Africans will usually buy them and sell them after dark for a marked up price.

        Website called Slumi. Look for girls offering an outcall.

        If you have no luck, look for late night "massage parlours" near your hotel on google. Basically just brothels with a load of women. Go in, sit down, they'll all come out naked. The lady who runs the place will ask which you wanna fuck. Give her the cash. It's as simple as that.

        I think those who stole my wallet were French white European teenagers

        Because the last time I felt that my wallet was in my pocket was just before some French dude asked me to roll up his sleeve for him , I found it very strange because he can do that on his own but now I think it’s because he wanted to distract me while his friends took my wallet so don’t ever let your guard down with any ethnicity

    >things worth doing
    Gaudi architecture checklist, Art museums (picasso is there and so is the National Museum of Art), Magic Fountain at night is nice. Shopping and walking through the Gothic Quarter, same thing with El Raval (literally 2 streets east and west from La Rambla respectively), catalunia plaza, generally walking around the city, park guell, triumphal arc and adjacent park is nice af.
    >dont like walking in big cities
    then why go to a walkable big city? Should have gone to palma mallorca instead.
    >food
    Despite being told not to go, the Boqeuria (farmers market) at La Rambla is actually not a bad stop. Particularly, you'll want to go to El Quim de la Boqueria and get a good breakfast there. Their special is eggs cooked with squid, very good stuff. Vinitus is pretty good as well for a more modern tapas place. Miño is a great hole in the wall in El Raval (their literally flaming chorizo is 10/10). If you decide to go to La Sagrada Familia, La Paradeta is a seafood market that doubles as a small restaurant. There will be a line before the spot even opens, best to get tickets to SF at like 2pm and arrive at 11:45 to the restaurant before it opens for lunch. Amazing quality seafood, the navajas were still alive when I bought them. Cerveseria Catalana is a top restaurant in the city that is affordable and of high quality, also beer. Santagustina is pricey and always full but it's insanely good shit. If you like cocktail bars, Dux and Dr. Stravinsky are kino. La Alcoba Azul is a great restaurant/bar as well.
    >music
    Flamenco shows will be the place to go. Robadors23 is a bar with sunday night flamenco for cheap (shit seating though and kinda sketchy with whores and drugs nearby), its all locals in there which is a plus.

    Another anon recommended Nevermind, it's not bad but know its literally a dive bar. Two Schmucks is going to be up your alley.

    You have discovered the worst bit about Barcelona which is petty theft. Sorry anon.

    It is a real shame. Barca is one of the best cities in the world if you don’t get mugged. All the Gaudi stuff, amazing food, the beach, bar hopping. They even have a gnomish Mountain.

    One thing I liked which no one went to was the botanical garden and its cactus display. It’s just laid out nicely.

      It's because spain has become too progressive. Petty theft isn't punished. In romania, where these shitheads are from, they'd be thrown in jail for 2 years and in Algeria they'd just never get out.

    Just took the bus tour, meh, Barcelona tries too hard to impress but fails because it has no personality, too heterogeneous for my liking .

    Also the Catalans should invest more in cleaning their streets from dust and trash.

    Paris shits all over Barcelona.

    I now understand why parisians are full of themselves, I think hands down paris is the best city on this planet , and it’s not even close.
