We will start the weekend in style at the afterwork of BRIDGE LAB, the musical hub of Poblenou that every Friday has different DJ sets paired with drinks. From its outdoor terrace, there is also the possibility of experimenting with the sounds, music and DJ set by @bridge48studios in the form of jam sessions.

At nightfall, we will head to one of the most exclusive neo-taverns in the city: Ultramarinos Marín. From the bar of this ‘bar-asador’ they don’t serve the typical greasy tapas on silk-screened plates, but rather traditional high-end grilled dishes, cured sausages, stews, pickles, artichokes, bouchot mussels, piparras, pates or smoked fish served by chef Borja García and his team.

Where? At Calle Balmes, 187.


If the meaning or the essence of the act of eating is enjoyment, we can certainly reach that feeling in the restaurant DISFRUTAR. The second home of exBulli Oriol Castro, Eduard Xatruch and Mateu Casañas, it is presented as a design restaurant where you can live a gastronomic experience that balances technique, flavor and product through its two avant-garde tasting menus inspired by Mediterranean haute cuisine.

Beyond the tasting passes, at Disfrutar you can also live the experience of ‘La Mesa Viva’, developed in the restaurant’s R&D kitchen for a minimum of one person and a maximum of 6.

We will continue to explore the night sessions that resonate in the capital at NitsaClub‘s ‘CAOTICA‘ party. The event will feature a series of DJ sets captained by the national promise of Latin electronica, techno and hardstyle or ballroom, Toccororo, as well as TAYHANA with his techno, jersey club and Latin fusion. If you don’t have it yet, get your pass here.


On Sunday morning, we will head to the cultural and gastronomic space that houses Casa Montjuïc to experience live the rhythmic and sonorous experimentation of the electronic production of MANS O. At 12.30 noon, the artist will offer a live show with which he will once again rumble in Barcelona, with his electronic mixes.

This daytime musical experience will set the stage for a later meal in a totally different setting: a romantic restaurant known as JOK

At its tables surrounded by classical elements and sculptures, we will be served traditional Catalan and market dishes with avant-garde touches such as its cream of bicolor cauliflower with cuttlefish or its sautéed chanterelles with garlic, sausage and mushrooms.

Where? At Carrer de Mallorca, 275.
