TONI Varga compiles his Barcelona city guide ahead of elrow Poble Espanyol during OFFSónar

Sónar celebrates 25 years and elrow wants to join them! Once again elrow bring his flagship theme Singermorning to Poble Espanyol Barcelona during OFFSónar week. On Friday June 15th from 16.00 to 00.00, let yourself be carried away by the essence of Singermorning.

Singermorning has no logical translation, Singermorning is an attitude. Singermorning is a free spirit that pays no attention to rules. A happy-go-lucky adventure where anything goes and surprises wait around every corner. From explorers and rock-stars to tribesmen and athletes, at Singermorning, you can be anything you want to be. Just be prepared for the unexpected.

Ahead of the showcase elrow longstanding resident TONI Varga shares some of his personal favourite hot spots in this Barcelona city guide exclusively for Decoded Magazine.

Cafe / Restaurant: Patatas Bravas

The ‘Patatas Bravas’ at Restaurante Papitu in El Raval are a must!! For me, they are the best ‘Patatas Bravas’ in Barcelona.

Bar / Drinking Spot: DRY Martini by Javier de las Muelas

DRY Martini by Javier de las Muelas is one of my favourite bars in Barcelona. The drinks are excellent, and the atmosphere here is incredible. It’s a perfect spot for a drink.

Museum / Sites / Cultural Activity: MACBA

This may seem like an obvious answer, but MACBA: The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, and La Sagrada Familia are two of my favourite cultural spots in Barcelona. They are popular tourist spots for a reason, and are incredibly iconic.

Favourite Spot To Soak Up the Views / Go for a Wonder: Mount Tibidabo

Mount Tibidabo has some of the most amazing views in all of Barcelona. The Gran Hotel La Florida sits on top of Mount Tibidabo, and the terrace offers unparalleled views. It is also a great place to eat and relax.

Wild Card: Flyboarding in the harbour of Barcelona Beach
Adrenaline Hunter

I couldn’t recommend it enough! It’s a water sport that involves strapping water jets to your feet and it allows you to fly above the sea. It’s fun and is also an incredible place to do it.
