First visit to Barcelona! Where can I go alone .. any idea? Planning my short trip and looking for suggestions


  • Mar 22, 2013 3:47 PM GMT

    After London, I'm visiting Barcelona for the First time Alone for 5 days, Looking for an unforgettable time. I would appreciate if you can share some information about this lovely city that I am about to visit for the first time.

    I just wanna tell you about myself so that you can suggest the right places for me. I'm a nice well educated, well traveled guy, good looking I assume icon_razz.gif straight acting and down to earth.

    Usually when I travel, I like to taste a bit of everything from the dive bars to the most exquisite lounge or restaurant. I's gonna be difficult this time because I'm all alone by myself and I have a very limited time..

    As you may noticed, I'm a party animal, looking for bars, nightclubs, nice unusual authentic restaurants, and trendy nice boutiques

    I'm gonna stay at the Hilton Barcelona, I hope that was a nice pick though.
    Mostly looking for:

    1- Nice gay bars where I can meet new people around my age and socialize.

    2- Night clubs: I can see that you have a good number of nightclubs which I have no clue about since it is my first time to visit. I appreciate if you help me picking the right ones.

    3- Exquisite restaurants and lounges, maybe tapaz ones, wine and dine.

    4- gay strip bars : I'm a former stripper long time a go

    5- gay or drag shows.: what is vacation without a drag show icon_razz.gif

    6- a hookup bar where i can find the right guy .. tick tock tick tock.,. icon_razz.gif

    I appreciate if you help me planning my trip to Barcelona.. and share you experience

    Thank you very much

    If you're there for a few days, there's a great little beach town called Sitges right outside of town. Lots of drinking and half-naked folks. Also, I'm a foodie, and in my estimation the best restaurant in Barcelona is Los Caracoles. Enjoy.

    With your wish list you could be in any city in the world....

    Barcelona is a unique and amazing city

    Go on a Gaudi tour and include La Sagrada Familia

    Walk the Las Ramblas day or night

    Just get out and walk

    You will see and meet many beautiful men everywhere

    Then its up to you to make the connection without the prop of a bar or dance club that is just another boring gay clone

    If you go to Punto BCN and order a drink, they will give you a ticket to Arena, which is the best gay disco in Barcelona.

    But go experience Barcelona during the day. I recommend Montjuic, one of my favourite places there.

    Sitges is a nice village.

    When I was there I had dinner at the Axel gay hotel, it was quite nice. It's in Eixample which is the main gay area. I didn't like Sitges.

    I liked the Parc Guell (I think it is still free) and I went to the Casa Batllo which was good but very overpriced. The Poble Espanyol is quite good too.

    Amicus65 saidIf you're there for a few days, there's a great little beach town called Sitges right outside of town. Lots of drinking and half-naked folks.

    Second the Sitges recommendation - it is very gay - a half hour suburban train ride from downtown Barcelona. (This is if you are going in summer - who goes to a beach town when the weather is not nice?) If you stay there, a number of swinging gay bars. You could definitely get laid. And if you don't stay there overnight, you can start your day with an afternoon at the gay beach and take the train back to Barcelona for the evening.

    I didn't like Sitges - been twice and it never grew on me.

    Barcelona is amazing. Don't stay at The Axel - overpriced and save your dollars for something cheaper and a nice dinner. It's great for drinks on the roof in the summer, though.

    Casa Camper is a cool hotel that I'd recommend.

    Arena is a fun club - the crowd can vary. It's not a thud-thud-thud / circuit club, more a fun pop / dance club where you can be silly.

    Souvenir (in a building near the airport) still happens from 6am (afterhours), I believe. That sounds right up your alley. Just ask around at the other clubs; there's buses outside of DBoy or whatever it's called today. It's pretty insane!

    Re: strip bars, I don't know of any. Not really the BCN thing to do.

    Re: hooking up - you'll have no problems. It's Spain and there's no shortage of hot guys wanting to spend the night with you. icon_twisted.gif

    There is a sex club called Open Mind. One of the hottest things I have been to, especially mask night. Everyone naked, except all wearing a hooded mask. Hot if your into it!
