Barcelona
« on: January 31, 2019, 10:11:35 am »
If anyone is interested in meeting up on the day of the concert may I suggest the below:

Fábrica Moritz brewery/Tapas bar in the Ciutat Vella part of town.

https://moritz.com/ca/

This is a bar that the band had a drink in in 2015 (See link below) and I have been since and loved it.

Of course I want to join, is it on walking distance from the venue?

Hi Ingrid,

This bar is a 37 minute walk to venue according to Google, which to me is "walking distance" but I appreciate most people would disagree with that!!

Hopefully weather will be nice...

The Palau Sant Jordi is in the top of one of the hills in Barcelona, quite high, take that in consideration because that 37 minutes walk could be all going up like climbing a mountain...
You might get lucky, now and then

Isn't there another pub closer to the venue? because 37 minutes according to Google is probably counted without climbing, so could be almost one hour, which means shorter time for drinks ;-) and arrive at the venue exhausted

No. The venue is located in what was called the olimpic ring, where there are only olimpic venues like the Olimpic stadium, the palau sant jordi or the olimpic swiming pool.

 Your best chance is to meet in somewhere around the old Arenas bullring, which is nowadays a mall with many restaurants and bars, and then walk until the Palau Sant Jordi, that is what anyone usually does to attend concerts at the Sant Jordi

Close to the venue there is a small and cosy bar, but it's small. This one: https://goo.gl/maps/gE9Bo54uJn92

I'd like to meet up before Barcelona.  We will need to pick up our tickets though, so need to leave time for that.
Could someone post the exact name and address of the meeting place.

Is this the place   Bar Estrella Damm  08038 Barcelona, Spain  ?


Time ?

It looks very close to the venue, so picking up tickets should be no problem.
