Spa urbano 1850

The good feeling and the positive energy after the aromatic massage and thermal route at Urban Spa 1850 are maximal

spa urbano 1850


How do people practice the constant attention of the present time, better known as mindfulness philosophy?

Last Tuesday I was enjoying so much the massage I was having at the Spa Urbano 1850, that the only thing that went through my mind during the last (I guess 10 minutes) was “Please do not finish, will she continue on the legs”. I tried to apply the mantra sat nam, to control breathing and thoughts and, although I was plenty of joy, my head only thought: “do not end, how good it is!”

The most interesting summer festivals in Barcelona

Primavera Sound 2017, Sonar, Vida Festival, Cruilla…………..

I think we all feel how the summer is coming to Barcelona. We noticed it looking at the people and how they use less clothes, more people wearing shorts, no jacket, more girls wearing dress without stockings … The terraces are full, people are generally happier. And apart from going to the beach, how do people have fun in Barcelona? Doing outdoor activities, such as going to the open air cinema at Sala Montjuic or going to concerts and festivals, among other things. There is something for everyone. That´s why we have made a much wider selection of the most interesting events that will take place during the summer.

Possible plans after work in Barcelona

One of the things we like to do most after work is to go and have a few drinks with some friends. But those people, who travel for business to Barcelona, do not have it so easy in this regard, unless they have come accompanied, that they go out with a colleague from work or they meet someone in the city.

MonDoré Gastronomic Brewery in Sant Antoni

The octopus with the parmentier we tested at MonDoré, a fantastic brewery in Sant Antoni, is one of the best we have ever had in recent months

pulpo parmentier - mondore cervecería gastronómicameloso - mondore cervecería gastronomicapuerros con romesco - mondore cervecería gastronomicatorrijas - cerveceria gastronomica mondore

MonDoré brewery is focused to all types of public, both for families with children looking for simple dishes such as pizzas or cocas, as well as business people looking for something more refined dishes. The menu contains from croquettes and patatas bravas, to more sophisticated dishes like the above-mentioned octopus or the syrupy with meat sauce cooked at low temperature.

As far as drinks are concerned, MonDoré offers up to 30 varieties of beer. In fact, it has its own craft beer, with 30% of hops that gives you the bitterness and a touch of honey and grapefruit. They make cocktails with or without alcohol and traditional sangria or with cava.

Our experience was very positive at this brewery. First we tried their beer and we were amazed, since neither of us are very fans of the craft beer in general, but we liked it a lot this one.

When they started to bring the dishes they put us a white garnacha wine, fruity and volatile, without much persistence in the mouth, but with a good acidity.

Our dinner consisted of:

  1. Iberian ham croquettes
  2. Crystalized leek with peanut romesco souce
  3. Tuna tataki with creamy avocado and seaweed salt
  4. Octopus “a la llauna” with carved potato
  5. Cheek veal with caramelized red onion
  6. The dessert… Oh the dessert…! Catalan cream foam on lemon ice cream and French toast with yogurt ice cream. Delicious.

The guests of The Urban Suites have a walk, from our tourist apartments in Barcelona to MonDoré, of only 10 minutes.

Argot BCN

Would you like to enjoy a brunch in Sant Antoni at a reasonable price? Then go to Argot BCN

Bocatería Argot

If there is something that characterizes to Argot BCN is its sandwiches, as Argot is not the typical place to go to eat a Spanish ham sandwich or the traditional “bikini” (Catalan sandwich with sweet ham and cheese). No. It’s a place to go to enjoy every bite you give to the sandwich you choose, because they have been delicately caring of that for you to feel the flavors of each of the ingredients.
