New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015

The centre of the middle of Barcelona, Plaza Catalunya will be the meeting point of all the tourists that usually spend New Year’s Eve outside, in the central points of their cities. After cheering ‘HAPPY NEW YEAR!’, the vast majority will most likely hit the pubs and bars on Las Ramblas – the most famous street in Barcelona, which is literally adjacent with the Plaza.



New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015

Considered to be one of the most atmospheric venues in the whole Barcelona due to its narrow size, Poble Espanyol is thus a more intimate approach towards spending the New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015. With retro music concerts featuring ’70s/’80s/’90s styles, the tickets cost 35€ and include five drinks, hot chocolate and a party bag! VIP tickets are 45€.



New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015

What can be better than a beach celebration of New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015? We’re telling you – NADA!! Grab your friends and your booze and be prepared to raid those beaches accompanied by other crazy people, all waiting for the marvellous fireworks from midnight! If you feel ‘adventurous’, you can try the parties from the W Hotel – 50€ to enter to the W lounge; 100€ for the Eclipse bar.



New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015

Oh, Good ol’ Razzmatazz! Of course it couldn’t be missed from the list of venues for the New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015! With a unique ambience, Sala Razzmatazz can be the best choice for a techno clubbing, especially for those of you that are into electronica ‘warehouse’ parties. Tickets are 50€ (till midnight) and 40€ afterwards.



New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015

Alongside with Razzmatazz, Opium is also one of the most touristic clubs in Barcelona. Situated by the beach, it will also give you the opportunity to admire the midnight fireworks from shore, while enjoying excellent loud electronica! Ticket prices are 50€ (including one drink).



New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015

Flamenco in its purest form! If you’re looking for the real thing for New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015, then Tablao de Carmen is definitely the place you will have to hit! All Spanish New Year’s Eve traditions gathered in one place to delight your senses with music, dances and amazing food, drinks and service!



New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015

Wanna hear some latino vibes  during the New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015? Then off you go – Harlem Jazz Club! Do your warm up before going there, you are going to need all the muscles in your body, as the salsa, afrobeats or bossa nova style music will make you shake yo’ ass so hard that the next day not only you will feel the hangover, but also a very acute muscle soreness! Tickets are extremely cheap (considering other venues) – 16€ (live music and dj session after 2am).



New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015

For those of you who just wanna take it easy and chillax after a long 2014 year while enjoying a great 3-course Spanish dinner plus dessert, we recommend you the Hard Rock Cafe. Dinner, dessert, party bag and drinks will be 100€, whereas if you only wanna drink, it will cost you half.


Having mentioned all this stuff, have a crazy New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015, a Happy New 2015 Year and may all your wishes come true in 2015!

Muchisimas gracias,

New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2015



Gay Barcelona – Online Gayness

Gay Barcelona – Online Dating.

Grindr, Gay Barcelona, Gay Clubbing, Gay Apps, Gay phone, Gay hook-up, Gay Matching, Gay App, Gay Dating, Online Gay Dating

What’s up my gorgeous bits of fabulousness! I’m back for another blog for our Gay Barcelona – Blog Series! After a few topics about real-life face-to-face action, like regular clubbing, cruising and how to tackle the STD-problems some might have, it is time for some online Gayness! Oh yes, the apps. Websites. Grindr, The famous ones, and some of the less famous ones. I’ll cover a few of them to help you out if you are lost in what to pick. And what you can find in any of them! Just remember. All the apps are most likely to be NSFW. So. Be sure to run to the bathroom before using some of them at work.


Grindr, Gay Barcelona, Gay Clubbing, Gay Apps, Gay phone, Gay hook-up, Gay Matching, Gay App, Gay Dating, Online Gay Dating

So one of the first apps and probably the most famous app I am going to talk about is Grindr. Everybody knows about Grindr, or has heard of it or whatevs. But if you are one of those gay guys that has been living on the bottom of the ocean, or some other bottom, then I will gladly tell you all about Grindr! It is supposedly to be a social app, some sort of regular chat app that is thrown out there for our gay guys to meet each other. Because gay clubs don’t always do it, because then you see them in real life. And yeah well, everybody lies every now and then about their age, and photoshop is a marvelous thing after all. However, I do not suggest using enhanced pictures of yourself or fake pictures overall, because IF you end up meeting the guy through Grindr, he will see how you actually look. Which is of course is still very, very fabulous. It’s just not that nice to let people think you are different than who you actually are.


But that, my unicorns, is what Grindr was / is supposed to do. Meet up with people in your near area (it shows how far away some guys are and you see their pictures and stuff), Gay Barcelona all the way! But what Grindr really does is kinda skipping the whole ‘let’s meet over a cup of tea with some cookies’ – part. 9 out 10 times the guys you will talk to on Grindr, or that will talk to you, are out there for that thing that biologically defines you sexually as a man. They want sex. Sex and nothing else. Well, that 1 out of the 10th guy is actually out there for that cup of coffee and a cookie, but then again, that probably is some old 80 year guy on his deathbed, or someone that just been traumatized by his psycho ex.

Now how does Grindr work? It’s very, very simple. You make an account, log on the app, and you’ll see quite some guys nearby, ready to be talked to. You’ll see how far away there are, and a few photos they’ve uploaded for you to see. Click on the guy you are interested in and you are ready to chat. Yeah. That’s it. Easy as taking a lollipop from ehh.. Does a kid sound wrong here?


Grindr, Gay Barcelona, Gay Clubbing, Gay Apps, Gay phone, Gay hook-up, Gay Matching, Gay App, Gay Dating, Online Gay Dating, TinderNow up for our next few apps, the explanation won’t be as long, as they all pretty much work the same. But Tinder will be our next Gay Barcelona App Awesomeness topic!

So Tinder has kinda the same mechanics as Grindr. It shows how far away someone is, you see a picture, etcetera. However, Tinder is officially a straight-people app. But that has seriously changed since its creation. You can now say if you’re interested in boys or girls. Or both. So no worries about that, you can still swipe your way till you find your Prince Tinder on his Golden iPhone. Unlike Grindr, you only get to see one guy at a time, and you’ll have to swipe if you’re interested or not. Right if you’re interested, left if you’re not. Easy as that. And it’s not even awkward or something, because the other person will never know if you’ve liked them untill they’ve liked you as well and you both got a match-up.

Is this the real life?

Tinder is a little bit less sex-focused as Grindr, but still. It has sex. Notice the ‘little bit’ in that sentence though. Because really. The difference is minimal. I must say that I MUCH more prefer Tinder over Grindr. It just seems more user-friendly. And better. And more fun. It’s like real-life bar scanning on your phone. If that makes any sense. It did in my head.

Gay Apps

The last app-part of our Gay Barcelona blog won’t be a huge explanation. So instead of explaining exactly how all the other apps work, which will just bore you out if it didn’t already, I’ll just give you a few more options to try out yourselves and find some Online Gayness that’s totally amazeballs:

  • Scruff
  • Hornet
  • Manhunt
  • Bender

Gay Webbing

Grindr, Gay Barcelona, Gay Clubbing, Gay Apps, Gay phone, Gay hook-up, Gay Matching, Gay App, Gay Dating, Online Gay Dating, Tinder

So now I’ve covered the phone section of this blog, let’s top it off with some real Online Gayness. Websites. Online dating / meeting / hook-up websites. It’ll be the last thing I’ll cover in this Gay Barcelona blog. I’m sorry I’m not sticking around longer. But no need to miss me. I’ll be back. Oh, if there is anything you specifically would like to be seen discussed, please leave a comment down below!

These websites are the typical, stereotypical, and, in my opinion, lame online hook-up websites. 9 out of 10 the people are purely out for sex. And most of them don’t have pictures. Or fake pictures. (Which can also be the case in the apps as I mentioned before)

So these websites are all the same, some a little more serious than the other. But just like I said before, most of them are pretty much to find some sex.

The most innocent one right now is probably It is about 50/50 on the sex / serious – ratio. You can see people come by on the website and you can click on them to start a conversation. You can exchange photos in the conversation. And of course hook-up if you feel like it. But that’s the same thing as with the apps.

To be honest, I don’t really think I have to explain all these websites in such detail, as they all are pretty gay-forward. So I’ll just give you a few options to try out;


Grindr, Gay Barcelona, Gay Clubbing, Gay Apps, Gay phone, Gay hook-up, Gay Matching, Gay App, Gay Dating, Online Gay Dating, Tinder

Well, my fancy love-birds. As I didn’t use enough puns in this blog as I always do, here is one to end the blog. You’re gonna love it, because it is SO lame;

What does a gay horse eat?


Bet that made you smile.

Oh, and before I forget, have some wonderful holidays!

Grindr, Gay Barcelona, Gay Clubbing, Gay Apps, Gay phone, Gay hook-up, Gay Matching, Gay App, Gay Dating, Online Gay Dating, Tinder

So, that’s it for this blog my gorgeous sunflowers. Have a fabulous gayday!

So long, gay boys!




Room escape games in Barcelona

Room Escape Games in Barcelona: What IS That?

Have you ever heard about room escape games in Barcelona ? It seems new but actually, it isn’t. Room escape games have become so popular among young people who are loving this new type of amusement. Real life room escape is a type of adventure game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use the elements in the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape from the room in the time limit. Each game integrates specific concepts and themes. The game is based on the “escape the room” video games. Room escape games were first opened in Switzerland and Hungary, and then in other European countries, North America, Asia and Australia. It is very popular in the US, Japan, Taiwan and mainland China. Inside Europe, there are around 150 game locations. Following the trend, Suitelife is happy to introduce you room escape games opened in Barcelona !

Want to have some intriguing experiences ? Let’s try ParaPark. ParaPark is the first room escape game in Barcelona. It is becoming more popular day by day, which made ParaPark to expand to 5 locations in Spain (2 in Barcelona, 2 in Madrid and 1 in Gran Canaria). Like many other similar room escape games around the world, ParaPark tests people’s mental sharpness by locking them in a room. You have 60 minutes to manage by trying to find clues, solve puzzles and riddles, and hopefully to escape the room. The countdown clock on the wall shows how much time you have left. Every corner of a room has a hint or code and you have to solve the codes together in order to successfully escape the room.  ParaPark lets you be another Sherlock. No physical strengths needed, but your brain strengths and team working abilities are keys to lead the way out. And don’t worry about meeting a fearful light, voice effect or blood-curling turn that you usually see in the movies. ParaPark is sensational because of its exciting quizzes, jigsaw puzzles pieces and the adventure of team-work. You don’t need to speak Spanish/Catalan, because the game is available in English as well! The rules of ParaPark is that each group has to have minimum 2 and maximum 5 people and those who are under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. The price for 60 minutes is 47EUR/per team (from 2-5 people). You need to book your time slot online and I suggest you to book at least 1 week in advance.

Draft Beers in Barcelona


Draft beers Barcelona

Draft beers in Barcelona? You would think that Barcelona sounds like a drinker’s paradise with cava, sangria, mojitos, vermouth, etc… But about beer, I was not so sure. The big Spanish brands like San Miguel or Estrella Damm have never seemed as good to me compared to other breweries in Europe. Most restaurants, bars and pubs serve beer but the options are limited. In Barcelona, I realized that there are very few bars/pubs offering actual beers on tap that aren’t one of the commercial brands. Don’t worry though! We’ve taken it upon us to thoroughly investigate the situation and we will show you the best of draft beers in Barcelona.

If you are a cocktail-lover, don’t miss out our ebook Top 10 Cocktail Bars in Barcelona


This bar has everything you need to have a fantastic late night beer binge: a huge selection in both international and local beer, delicious food, humorous and knowledgeable staff, nice and chill atmosphere,… It seems that 10 taps is not enough for a beer bar, BierCab has 30 taps which you might have not never seen before. The awesome beer selection both in taps and bottles ranges from strong to weak, from dark to light, from all over the world. The prices aren’t cheap, mostly around 5-8EUR for a pint, but it is totally worth for trying beer thats beyond the normal standard beer in Barcelona. The bar also serves tasty tapas. When you go there, don’t hesitate to try the burgers and patatas bravas. With its funky vibe coming from good music, wooden design, and especially from friendly drinkers, BierCab is a favourite spot for many foreigners and locals alike. Check out their website for more details in drink and food menu.

Address: Carrer Muntaner 55

Draught beer in Barcelona


The second spot in our Draft beers in Barcelona list is Ale&Hop. If you want to escape from very crowded breweries, Ale&Hop is the place for you. This cozy bar is an indie brewery of Barcelona par excellence. Ale&Hop is a place where you can listen to underground hits, enjoy cozy ambiance, a hipster feel and especially great beer, which is a mix of high quality offerings from Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Spain,… With 10 taps and excellent bottles in fridge, Ale&Hop is a must-visit place if you want to get drunk. The price is 3-5EUR for a pint, which is very reasonable for quality beer. Located on a small street in trendy El Born, Ale&Hop is a good late night choice after having a stroll and dinner. The food here is not very special. But if you are veggies, Ale&Hop does very well in serving top notch vegetarian food.

Address: Carrer de les Basses de Sant Pere, 10

Beer on taps in Barcelona

La Cerveteca

Another cool gem  in Gothic Quarter is La Cerveteca. It’s a shop, a bar and a brewery library. There are always people tasting different beers and perhaps you might not understand their drink list and sometimes strange vocabulary. La Cerveteca is a cultural meeting space that revolves around beer and everything related to it. At La Cerveteca, you will find information on beer culture, brewery events, and craft beers from different origins that become the symbols of the world of beer. Not just only a shop, La Cerveteca is also a drinking spot which offers beer from 13 taps and 100 bottles being selected carefully as well as pretty good tapas. Not like other beer bars/pubs, La Cerveteca should be visited early, because its opening hours are from 18:00 to 23:00.

Address: Carrer d’En Gignàs, 25

Draft beer in Barcelona

Cara B

Cara B is a great little bar in Gracia well off of tourist path. It is shabby but still nice with 10 taps and around 130 bottles of beers mostly from the UK, Belgium and US. It has live music every night from Tuesday to Saturday. The singers and bands bring the intimate feeling to the room. This spot is more for thirty-something plus crowd because Cara B can really remind them of their childhood when you bounce up and down on your bed with Twist and Shout and Jumpin’ Jack Flash. There are black and white photos of The Stones, Jackson 5 as well as the vinyl 33 on the walls, which will send you back to an older musical era. When the music isn’t live, you can still enjoy your beer listening to the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and so on.

Address: Carrer del Torrent de les Flors, 36

Draught beer in Bcn


The name says it all. CatBar is a little bit different from other Barcelona’s draft beers places. Located in El Born neighborhood, this bar is a cat-themed bar, which is surprising and fun. Of course you won’t see any real cats in this bar, but you might see some drawn on the walls and some hipsters lovingly referring to their friends as ‘cats’. There are 9 craft beers on tap and the staff let you sample somethings before ordering a pint. About food, this dimly lit bar features very good veggie options, especially burgers which I recommend highly.

Address: Carrer Boria, 17

The weather is getting colder and colder folks! I hope these cool draft beers places will inspire you and keep you from being lazy and staying at home on the couch tonight.
