Soho House Barcelona
4 Plaça del Duc de Medinaceli, Las Ramblas
We love the stylish, shabby-chic touches and conveniences that are a Soho House signature and the 18th century building and harbor views don’t hurt either.
El Quim de la Boqueria
91 Les Rambles, Las Ramblas
In 1987, Quim Márquez set up his tapas shop at La Boqueria, Barcelona's famed food market. His space was a three meter-long counter with five stools. El Quim's following grew exponentially in the next decade—and in 2000, it moved to a 16 meter-long counter with 18 stools. Absolutely stop here for an egg breakfast (with ham or foie gras, mushrooms, prawns, squid, etc.) before perusing La Boqueria. As super foodie Phil Rosenthal, creator of Everybody Loves Raymond, says, it's the kid of meal that will call you back to Barcelona.
Mercat de la Boqueria
Carrer de la Boqueria, Las Ramblas
Mercat de la Boqueria is in the middle of Las Ramblas—you truly can’t miss it. It’s one of the most beautiful, lively markets in the world, and the inside is peppered with great little places to eat.

Carrer Rambla de Catalunya, 100, Las Ramblas
As the name implies, this beautifully made clothing line is inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle, resulting in elegant, wearable separates and accessories for men and women. While there are now outposts scattered all over Europe and the clothes are made mostly in family-run factories in Spain and Italy, the flagship boutique is situated right in the center of Barcelona with a second outpost nearby.
