From Tapas we compile the best plans with which to enjoy the most of the weekend in Barcelona, and relegate ourselves to hedonism between cultural and gastronomic experiences, parties, events and museums. Take the agenda and take note of our weekly proposal.


This weekend we will travel again to Barcelona to live the new experiences that consecrate us. We will start with an immersive act called REAL SELF: a theater where you can enter a show where there are no actors, and the protagonist is the audience itself.

At Espacio Inmersa, participants in groups of 200 people, dressed in costumes and hidden behind masks, will make up this performance based on animato; in which a voice-over, original music and a 360° mapping will guide them through a unique space where they will experience all kinds of emotions: from euphoria to the deepest inner reflection. Where? Calle Badajoz, 72.

At sunset, we will head to the trendy cocktail bar ‘Nuts‘: one of the enclaves of reference mixologist, directed by Lázaro Rosa Violán and designer Josep María Morera.

That influence or basis in design is channeled into its interior, which houses objects recovered from all his travels as Paris, Venice or Bordeaux, creating an atmosphere suspended between art and romanticism from which we will taste outstanding cocktails such as the ‘Japan Blossom’, the ‘Daikiri de coco’ or the ‘Rose Martini’ created by his bartender Gerard Vaquer. The live jazz concert will finish elevating the immersive experience. Where? At Calle Muntaner, 147.


On Saturday we will visit the temple of Japanese cuisine Nomo Gràcia, where we will travel through the gastronomic fusion of the renowned chef Naoyuki. A modern and cosmopolitan restaurant where you can find Japanese dishes with Spanish influences such as oxtail croquettes coated in panko, as well as different kinds of gyozas such as Perol sausage with grilled vegetables. Where? At Gran de Gràcia 13.

From Japan we will be back on the Barcelona stage of Festival·B, which fuses all the trends of urban and independent music through an exciting line-up with artists such as Yung Beef, Rojuu, Leïti, Albany, Gloosito, Judeline, Jarfaiter or Juicy Bae.


For Sunday, what better than a paella at Maná 75, the restaurant run by expert rice cooks who take Mediterranean gastronomy to the next level.

From its large dining room, full of round tables and avant-garde lamps designed by the Turull Sörensen studio, we will eat one of its delicious rice dishes such as seafood ‘senyoret’ or mountain rice with black sausage and pork ribs confit. Where? In Passeig Joan de Borbó, 101.

Sunday night will be spent at the elegant Noxe club of Hotel W with the NOTORIOUS party, to the rhythm of hip hop and the best views of the city. There we will experience a kind of urban ritual by current sounds, underground and old school, with the seal of quality of the house. In addition, admission is free: #firstcome #firstserved.
