9 to-do's in BCN

Hola Barcelona. Where can we eat nachos on a door-turned-into-table? Which place offers paddle surfing lessons? When can we visit the best local markets? And which hotel uses solar panels to heat water? These are the places to visit in Barcelona.

Surf House Barcelona
Everybody can feel like a surfer at Surf House Barcelona. The tables are made from surfboards and the vibes are laid back. These guys offer tons of activities, from paddle surfing to game nights. The food is healthy and organic. Mmm, nachos with guacamole or an organic cocktail?
Av. Almirallaixada, 22

Caravan Made
Sílvia and Javi make super fresh sandwiches from their vintage caravan. They use organic ingredients and support local suppliers. Every season they develop new recipes to spoil people with at various events. You can enjoy Caravan Made recipes at Palo Alto Market.

Palo Alto Market
The Palo Alto Market is organised every first weekend of the month. This food, design, coffee and music festival takes place in Poblenou, an upcoming neighborhood in Barcelona. There'll be lots of organic street food trucks and small shops with vintage and handcrafted goods.
Carrer dels Pellaires, 30

Magnesia
Magnesia = magnificent. Owner Leticia selects the most beautiful illustrations, bags, books and jewelry from young designers around the world in her store in Gracia. 'A little shop in a weird corner' as she calls it herself, is decorated with recycled furniture and hydraulic cement tiles.
Torrent de l'Olla, 192

Firmamento
Surf's definitely up in Barcelona. Firmamento is a brand born in the fishermen's neighborhood of La Barceloneta. Their timeless sea and surf products are locally produced and made to last. Bags with handles made from sailing rope and magazines from around the corner, like Apartemento.
Carrer l'Atlàntida, 57

Betahaus
Bringing your laptop to Barcelona? Betahaus is a co-working space where you can spend your working day, attend a workshop or build your prototypes in their maker area. With 2000 square meters, 6 floors and… 5 terraces, Betahaus is really an office with a view.
Carrer de Vilafranca, 7

Mother
In between all frittatas, quesos and tintos, it's nice to get a shot of vitamins. Mother is one of the first organic cold press juice bars in Barcelona. They also have a wide selection of nut milks and healthy snacks, so dig in and treat yourself good.
Calle Joaquim Costa, 26

Bàscula
A restaurant in a former chocolate factory! This vegetarian cafe has doors as tables and chairs hanging on the walls. Not only Bàscula's food is organic, also the glasses, plates and spoons are biodegradable.
Carrer dels Flassaders, 30

Hotel Casa Camper
Camper spirit and values… in a hotel! This place is functional and friendly. Also to nature. The hotel has a water recycling system that cleans shower and bath water bio-mechanically and produces water which is re-used in the toilet. Casa Camper also uses solar energy for water heating and promotes biking.
