During summer months, the night life in Barcelona picks up high speed. The leisure and cultural activities increase greatly. Having a drink while seeing the Barcelona skyline or letting oneself go for a sensory performance. These are some suggestions which the city offers.
If we want to combine a Barcelona symbolic place with a complete cultural proposal, our destination is on Paseo de Gracia. “Noches de verano de La Pedrera” joins live jazz in Casa Milà's rooftop, with amazing views of the city. This activity finishes with a drink and a Espai Gaudí free visit. An original way to do a visual tour through the life's work of this unique architect.
But La Pedrera's offer grows during summer. The culinary option ends with a dinner at Cafè de La Pedrera where we can enjoy the JazzNight menu. The other is “Gaudí's Pedrera: The origins” with which anybody can visit the building with a video, light and music performance. The tour ends with a video mapping in the rooftop.
Barcelona also has a theatre, músic and circus festival. El El Grec Festival joins different styles performances, some of them directed to a family audience in MiniGrec. Despite on the event started at the beginning of July, we can still go to shows like Milo Rau's one. He presents “The Civil War” with his International Institute of Political Murder. The play talks about the future of Europe. A proposal which combines dance, music and theatre, is 'Aquiles or the astonishment' of IT Dansa and La Patacada. Yann Tiersen or Els Amics de les Arts are some of the musicians who are also going to play in El Grec.
If we look for a calm outdoor place,“Música als parcs 2015” is our destination. Until the 4th of September, we can enjoy this classical music and jazz festival. Its goal is to discover young musicians. An activity to enjoy big concerts in the middle of an urban garden.
Cinephile people will be happy it they are in Barcelona during summer. One of the classics of this time of the year in the city is the season of outdoor cinema at Sala Montjuïc. There we can watch classic and current films in one of the most magical places in Barcelona, Castell de Montjuïc courtyard. There is a hammock renting and picnic service, cinema master classes and the possibility to visit the castle on a guided tour.
The last suggestion is closed to sensitive culture. The headquarters of the company Teatro de Los Sentidos, El Polvorí, take in 'Cabaret sensorial' on July. This performance joins music with sensory games. The theater company invites to letting ourselves go between stone walls, candles under the trees and starts over the Mediterranean. A perfect scene to have a drink with friends.
An endless number of possibilities to enjoy Barcelona after the sunset.
