Bouzu Japanese Restaurant

Great Japanese food in Barcelona

Visiting Barcelona represents a unique experience and we are sure that this phrase doesn't emphasises all the feelings we have when stating this. What is most surprising about Barcelona is its diversity, its combined influences, its variety of shapes, colours and people. Barcelona has a place for everyone. This city could be easily compared to an international mother of all nations.

Sunol Foundation art collections BarcelonaArt Dialogues Barcelona

We have decided to focus on the more obscure exhibition scene in this post: The Suñol Foundation, which is showing an small collection entitled 'Dialogues' with art items ranging from re-known artists such as Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró.  The exhibition aims to highlight concept shifts that occurred during the 20th century using a series of combined works from these artists and more.  The Suñol Foundation is a private, non-profit organisation with a collection of contemporary and avant-garde pieces.  Exhibit runs until 3rd October 2009.


Architecture in Caixa Forum

Richard Rogers and Architecture at Caixa Forum BarcelonaRichard Rogers Barcelona

La Caixa Forum is currently hosting a three month exhibition based on the architecture of Richard Rogers - who began his career working with Norman Foster in the Sixties.  Often dubbed as humanist style architecture, the interest of Richard Rogers with regard to architecture, that of social inclusion through environment building design, is a common one among modern architects.  This theme can be combined nicely with the "Impurity" exhibition currently showing in the CCCB (article also on this site) about the human condition.


Barcelona Salsa

Salsa BarcelonaSalsa Barcelona

Even though Catalonia claims not to be Spain, that doesn't mean we don't want (or expect) to be able to enjoy Salsa around the calid coastline - which is the perfect place to enjoy it.  In fact, there are some great places for salsa lovers (salseros) in Barcelona, and there are several small groups dedicated to roaming these clubs on a regular basis (See meetup.com).  So, we'd just like to give you a run-down of the salsotecas you can expect to find yourself in once you have arrived in BCN.  Azucarrr!


Exhibitions Barcelona CCCB

Impurity Exhibition BarcelonaImpurity Exhibition CCCB

The CCCB (Centre for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona) is currently presenting some interesting works as part of an ongoing series into the condition of the human species - at this point in time particularly poignant as global statesmen currently ponder the state of affairs in terms of political economy and it's effects on society (at least, we hope that's what they are thinking about).
