If you feel like the daily walk isn’t quite cutting the mustard for your four-legged companion, this newlyopened space in the Eixample may be what you’ve both been waiting for. Barkcelona is the city’s first social club for pets and their owners, uniting people with a shared passion in an animal-friendly environment. As well as organising group walks and specialised workshops, the space boasts top-branded fashion and accessories, a fully-equipped wash and cut facility and spacious play centre. The idea may strike some as barking mad, but it’s sure to delight your pet.

Celler de Ceres
Give your taste buds a break from Moritz or Estrella: Barcelona has a new contender on the city’s craft beer scene. Understatedly cool, Celler de Ceres in the Born pays no attention to detail, simply offering 12 international beer taps and many other bottled specials—perfect for washing down some of their homemade culinary delights.

The Filmoteca is an emblematic fixture of the Raval, and March this year saw the opening of its newest installation, a bar/restaurant suitably named ‘La Monroe’. Open from Tuesday to Sunday, this groovy space is just what the Filmoteca was lacking—a meeting point for the city’s film lovers. The menu is simple yet creative, and has plenty to offer in the drinks department. It’s certainly not the place to go for a slapup meal, but offers a great atmosphere, ideal for some post-movie discussion.

Some of you may remember its former incarnation— Tintoria Dontell—the lavish restaurant concealed behind the façade of a small launderette. The concept was quirky and never failed to surprise unsuspecting punters, however the prices were startlingly high and booking required inside approval. That space now hosts Accés, an equally lavish restaurant without the pretence of its predecessor. The menu offers a varied selection of excellent dishes, and finally at a reasonable price. Furnished in garish purple with an open kitchen, there is certainly nothing to hide in this new addition to the Eixample.

Concept stores seem to be popping up all over the place these days and the latest arrival is OMG BCN in the Born. Creators Iu Bartolomé and Estela Portalés started the project following a brief trip to New York, and offer an eclectic array of fashion, jewellery and home furnishings, all designed and made in Barcelona. From simple BCN mugs to funky faux taxidermy, this place is a must if you’re looking to bring a bit of the Ciutat Comtal into your home.
