Barcelona is a city that must be discovered by all the five senses in order to truly appreciate what it's all about. Moreover, in some cases, it may even be worth combining several pleasant experiences at the same time. For instance, dinners with musical accompaniment always guarantee a unique and enjoyable evening. The best thing about this city is that it benefits from an extensive list of restaurants and bars that offering this possibility. Today, we will take you on a quick tour to some of the most interesting places for local music and dinner in Barcelona.
The tour begins with a particularly refined establishment and, despite its name, is much more than a cafe. Cafe Kafka, located in Fusina Street (near Paseo del Picasso and del Parque de la Ciudadela) is a highly recommended option for those who like a bistro type of restaurant. The cuisine is made of high quality ingredients with a unique blend of Mediterranean spices that will please and captivate you. Dinner is accompanied by music and is the perfect start to a long night, (the cocktail bar service does not close until 3:00am).

The next stop is another great place for dinner, whether you like a light meal or a heavy one. The restaurant, Once Upon a Time, is located in Mandri Street (in San Gervasio area). It is a nice tapas bar with small platters but with a noticeable French-inspired atmosphere. This restaurant has a moderately affordable menu with a variety of foods, and despite opening just three years ago, it has become an important part of the neighbourhood, especially for the younger locals.
In the area of Las Cortes, in Morales Street, a medium-sized restaurant that lets you discover the Catalan cuisine along with live musical entertainment is located. La Tertulia Restaurant whose name certainly says it all- presents a more expensive menu but the prices compensate for the presence of live bands and artists every Friday and Saturday night.
And to complete this tour, we return to El Born, where you can find El Forro Restaurant (la Princesa Street is on the corner along with Comercio Street). The appearance of this restaurant is of a French bistro, but its prices are affordable considering the high quality of the foods on offer. Dining at this restaurant is an enjoyable experience thanks to its unique charm and homely atmosphere. The amazing background music is performed by local artists and is the perfect way to enjoy your dinner.
