Tapas has compiled the best plans to make the most of the weekend in Barcelona, and to indulge in hedonism between cultural and gastronomic experiences, parties, events and museums. Grab your diary and take note of our weekly proposal.


We’ll start the weekend with an immersive experience in which to dance between emotion and creativity with B48_LIVE + LAB at BRIDGE_48, Poblenou. There we’ll be immersed in a vibrant atmosphere with DJ sets, drinks and lots of art until late into the night. Get your free pass here before 20.30h.

We will then move from this festive setting to an intimate and elegant dinner at Mae, the restaurant that opened its doors in 2023 under the direction of Germán Espinosa, together with Colombian chef Diego Mondragón and restaurateur Mariella Rodríguez.

At one of their tables, we will put into practice their gastronomic religion based on globalism and localism through multicultural virtuosity reflected in dishes such as red shrimp with pig’s trotters and tree tomato, cauliflower foam, red snapper and mussel gelée with fresh herbs or lamb and Jerusalem artichoke. Where? Calle Sant Elies, 22.


On Saturday we will escape from the city to eat in a forest located in the city centre. Specifically in Bosco de Lobos, from the Tragaluz group, which has had a culinary extension in Barcelona since last year, where you can eat between trees from salads to high quality pasta or Roman pizzas. However, take note of their suggestions: the octopus carpaccio with fennel and the radiccio trevisano with pear, gorgonzola and hazelnuts. Where? In Avenida Diagonal, 605 Interior.

Saturday’s evening will once again be provided by the techno party The Society of Art, set on an indoor terrace where Berlin producer Rampue will generate the festive ritual with his pop-influenced house sounds that have made him a global benchmark on the clubbing scene.


Casa Luz will be the place that will revive and enlighten us on Sunday with its brunch from the heights. They serve a classic brunch with New York influences that starts with starters designed for sharing: pita bread, hummus, tzatziki, guacamole with tortilla chips, oysters and aubergine croquettes, as well as sweet and savoury mains such as the club sandwich and eggs benedict.

The accompaniments finish off the experience with fried potatoes, Rooftop Smokehouse smoked salmon or poached or scrambled eggs. Where? Ronda de la Universitat, 1.

We couldn’t end the weekend without a little artistic stimulation, which this time we will experience through the exhibition ‘William Eggleston. Mystery of the Ordinary‘ at Fundación Mapfre.

This is a chronologically organised anthology that includes his early work in black and white and his entire later career in colour from 1965 onwards, by one of the most influential authors of contemporary photography, whose work is on display, full of everyday elements influenced by Henri Cartier-Bresson’s ‘decisive instant’, such as old shoes, freezers with food, the inside of a bathroom, a woman’s legs or a road sign.
