Visit Barcelona's Gerbard

Visit Barcelona's Gerbard
Everyone likes food and drink and most people like to listen to music, whether live or otherwise. If you're no exception to either of these personality traits and happen by some stroke of luck to be staying in a hostel in Barcelona right now, then I recommend you take some time out of your travel schedule to stop off at Gerbard, a "little neighbourhood bar" that promises to be lots and lots of fun.

According to Rupert Thompson, a writer who happens to live in the city and who suggested this venue in an article for the Guardian, Gerbard has a lot to offer keen-and-eager tourists who want to sample what the real Barcelona has to give.

He noted that those who attend the establishment will be able to check out US resident Sam Lardner who showcases his mix of bossa nova and flamenco of a night, as well as Pedro Javier Hermosilla and Daniel Figueras - "wonderful classical and flamenco guitarists".

What's more, this place also provides those who think more with their stomach than with their ears with an interesting menu that can be enjoyed while the tunes wash over.

"The eating and drinking are delicious too – Galician-style octopus, traditional meatballs, pimientos de padron (small green peppers) and wine for not much more than a euro a glass," Mr Thomson continued.

Sounds pretty perfect to me - what could be better than a night out with wine, snacks and fine music? I'm there!

I'm also at Tapac24, described by Time Out as an "old-school bar" that provides yummy tapas such as fried prawns, cod croquettes and oxtail stew and the McFoie Burger, similar to a ham-and-cheese toastie with a truffle included. Delicious!
