Launched in 2015, One Ocean Club is Barcelona’s most exclusive marina, visited by some of the world’s largest and most prestigious super-yachts. Located inside the marina Port Vell in the heart of the Barceloneta, the Blue Wave Bar was designed to reflect its surroundings – a palette of blues and whites give the impression of being engulfed by waves, while the artisan tiles which cover the venue from floor to ceiling are a reminder of its Mediterranean heritage. The club is a members only club but you can access by invitation or contact them to enquire about membership options.

2. El Velódromo

Bar, Restaurant, Tapas, Mediterranean, European, Beer

Located in the heights of Barcelona on C/ Muntaner, El Velódromo is one the oldest bars in Barcelona, with a long history of welcoming artists and intellectuals of all kinds. Having been shut for a number of years the venue was given new life when it was acquired by local brewery Moritz and given a modern makeover, which revived its old-world charm and preserved the art-déco style. Today the Velódromo is once again full from morning to night –open from 6am to 3am – and has a reputation for serving some of the best tapas in the area.

3. La Monroe

Bar, Restaurant, Spanish, Contemporary

A visit to La Monroe will plunge you right into the heart of Barcelona’s vibrant El Raval neighbourhood. While the square on which the venue is located is notorious for prostitution and has a slightly seedy underbelly, it’s also home to the city’s Filmoteca – Catalonia’s film archive and a popular cinema. Designed as one large open space which connects directly with its surroundings, La Monroe’s décor is playful and bright and attracts an eclectic crowd.
