In the best traditions of a true Catholic society, Barcelona imposes strict codes of conduct 51 weeks a year before cutting capers for a week or so, depending on your barri. This month, Més puts you up on a c ...

I’m claiming this izakaya for the Raval, given that we have no other Japanese restaurants to speak of in the 08001 and the joint is on our bank of the soon-to-be swanky-ass Ronda de Sant Antoni. Bouzu, or Bud ...

What’s not to like about June? The longest days of the year coincide with peak festival season as this year the big guys escape earthly privacy and copyright laws by marketing in space. This world famous week ...

March is the best month of the year. Not only are the ghastly winter months over, but the clocks leap forward and our bank balances are back up to scratch. It’s also the birth month of Ron Jeremy, Dave Eggers ...

Another year of hustle is in the can, and it’s safe to say that we leave the city in a better state that we found it. New spots have sprung up, fresh life has been breathed into some of the more established s ...

At BCN Més we go hard every month and no month illustrates this better than November. Against the hardships of empty pockets, precipitation and temperatures that can divebomb below 10ºC, we still happily fles ...

Music | Laut is Back

Loads to get through this month, pen pals. I’ve largely skipped the main event and its offshoots, as there are many more dates that are worthy of our attention and will wither and die without our support. Rea ...

My request for a press lunch is approved at Dos Pebrots (in Catalan two peppers represent the crown jewels, so to speak) and I excitedly roll up and meet my co-diners, all igers, some with five-figure followe ...

Yo musos! Not many promoters really wanted to stick their neck out last month, but the natives are now raring to go as we bid adéu to August. September has some seriously interesting proposals off the standar ...

Joé, that was a tough June. Hard to imagine getting yourself physically, mentally and financially prepared for another month of events, especially in this hot hot heat? Worry not, heads, we have a program of ...
