Here at Tapas we’ve compiled the best plans to make the most of the weekend in Barcelona and indulge in hedonism between cultural and gastronomic experiences, festivals, events and museums. Grab your diary and take note of our weekly proposal.


We begin the month in which everything is reborn and fades away at the same time, leaving behind a year to start with a new energy at Casa Montjuïc, which collaborates this Friday with LAUT and Please Advice to present the ambient cycle ‘Music for Airports‘.

At 8 p.m. the ritual will begin to resound with the best ambient music artists of the moment, starting with Abul Mogard, Sofie Birch, Dylan Henner and Ssaliva. Get your pass here.

From there, we will head to the Sala Apolo to enjoy an unforgettable clubber night with the CHICA collective party, this time with a line up of electronic music and other aggressive sounds made up of eoin dj, Chica Gang and JUGUETE.


On Saturday we will deal with the hangover at Bocanariz Wine Bar, the minimal intervention natural wine bar, where we will enjoy its liquid proposal along with healthy tapas made with organic products to share, inspired by Mediterranean cuisine with touches of its Latin American roots. All this paired to perfection with background music provided by jazz, soul and other styles.

In the afternoon, we will explore the iconicity of plastic art through the Miró-Picasso exhibition, which exhibits a special show that houses more than 300 works; some of contemporary cult such as Miró’s ‘La Masia’ and Picasso’s ‘The Three Dancers’ in two institutions simultaneously: the Miró Foundation and the Museu Picasso.

The exhibition is organised around six major chronological and thematic axes and will bring together a group of more than 250 works from public and private collections from all over the world with the aim of showing, side by side, two artists who transformed 20th century art with their own voice and an unprecedented plastic intensity. From their meeting in 1917 in Barcelona to their last monumental projects, through the episode of the Pavilion of the Spanish Republic in Paris in 1937 or their interest in the ancestral technique of ceramics, the visitor will also discover how these two artists and friends shared many transcendental moments in their careers.’


On Sunday we will eat at Sartoria Panatieri, one of the best pizzerias in Barcelona, and in the world. An Italian restaurant co-directed by Jorge and Rafa that specialises in artisan pizzas that respect the true tradition of the wood-fired oven.

The dough, made with stone-ground local organic flour, is made and fermented over a long period of time to create pizzas such as the delicious burrata stracciatella, along with sausages and pickles created from scratch in their kitchens. Among the most popular is the ‘Best Pizza in Europe 2023’, made with roasted cherry tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil hollandaise or the Pizza with bacon, mozzarella, jacket potato, egg yolk and tuna bottarga.

We’ll finish the weekend squeezing the Christmas spirit to the end at the Port Vell Christmas Fair, located in the Moll de la Fusta. There, there is a whole range of activities such as a sustainable ice rink and a market of local gastronomic products. The Port Vell’s Christmas lights will add the finishing touch to the magic of the maritime area.
