A friend of mine told me about this great, great old bar in Barcelona that I simply had to check out. It was called the same as a French city and that helped me remember the name so I could look it up when I got home.
I Googled "Bar Marsella" and was directed to a website, not the website of the bar, but a page which opened up a new little Barcelona-universe. Barcelona-life.com.
So, I got to read about this old bar, actually really old, it opened in 1820!! According to this site it is said to be the very first bar in Barcelona, and that the likes of Picasso and Hemmingway used to frequent it. And apparently Woody Allen chose to shoot a scene from this bar in the movie Vicky Christina Barcelona. There’s lots more to be said about the bar, but since I haven’t been there yet, I’ll refer you to the page. If you’re interested, click here.
After having read about the bar, of course I had to keep snooping around and this site is actually really informative and quite the complete guide to Barcelona, so if you are looking for Barcelona-information, it being bars, restaurants, or entertainment, this site covers it really well! I will be using this page to look for inspiration for things to do and where to do them!
