They have by day and by night. By day is in the CCCB-MACBA. The night time thing is a big rave in a soulless disused airport thing on the outskirts.

I think Sebo K/Ewano P/Philo S on the Saturday.

And some Mobilee party in the daytime on the Saturday.

I'll try Craigslist. We found a nice hotel for a reasonable price that is 2 miles outside the city centre. Reckon I might just go for that since literally every single site I tried for apartments is booked out.

People are going to be staying in the area by Sonar by Day behind the Boqueria etc to one side of the Ramblas so my suggestion is to find somewhere in Eixample or Gracia; also try near the zoo and market at the southernmost point of the Eixample street grid - shady, cool, and surprisingly cheap. A lot of the hostel accomodation is in lovely rooms but no aircon. There is also a boutique hotel around the corner from Vincon that might also suit but it might be...expensiveish, but not outrageous. Maybe a treat is in order for you?

do you know the name of the hotel? at the moment I'm pretty close to booking a place that looks really nice, which is around 430 euro for both us for the three nights, seems good value even if it was a crappy hotel.

Ronan, Sunday, 3 June 2007 10:41 (ten years ago) Permalink

(which it isn't. this place is dead nice)

Ronan, Sunday, 3 June 2007 10:41 (ten years ago) Permalink

It's either OMM or Gallery - both are on Calle Rossello just off Passeig de Gracia, and pretty much opposite one another. I'm pretty sure that Sonar artistes get placed at these places or at the Hotel Arts on the beach. Which is handy for the Kompakt afterparty.

ronan, you could try <a href="http://www.hostalgrau.com/php/index.php&quot;>hostal grau</a> where meg and i stayed a couple of months ago, BUT it is like 10 ft from macba-cccb so possibly booked up already...

Dudes who have been to Barcelona recently, where is good to hang these days? Am going tomorrow for a few days, staying in the Southern bit of the Eixample. Bar and restaurant recommendations particularly appreciated.

Total RFI, it looks like I've been accepted to the University of Barcelona to do a Master's Degree, so will be there for around eighteen months if everything goes well. I've never been to Spain before. If anyone has some tips of sorting out long-term accomodation for a start that would be great.

Now someone's driven a van into a large group of people in Barcelona. Other reports of armed men in a restaurant. Developing story.

Frightening. Spanish police now call it a terrorist attack.

(at first I feared it would be Ernai, the organisation who are protesting against too many tourists, which is catching on like wild fire in Barca and Spain. Though maybe that too could fall under terrorism idk)

Ernai is a basque abertzale group coming out of batasuna, eta, sortu etc. but its anti-tourist actions are not of the murderous variety (and take place in the basque country).

I got my anti-tourism groups mixed up, you are absolutely right. (and indeed they aren't murderous, it's just that the anti-tourism brigades have been in the news here a lot)

The incident took place directly outside two kosher restaurants and near the entrance to the historical Jewish quarter.

There are reports of armed men being holed up in a restaurant, presumably with hostages, but only single sourced. Horrific.

Matt DC, Thursday, 17 August 2017 16:46 (three months ago) Permalink

6 deaths confirmed now, and as matt says reports that two attackers are holding up in a restaurant, possibly with hostages.

horrible.

i was gonna say, not that it's a particularly big issue in the context of the revive but i prob would rather my frivolous thread from my university days about a trip to barcelona to take drugs doesn't merge with news of the murder of innocents.
