Beltxenea, Casa Calvet, Reno, Jean-Luc Figueras. Search on the names + Barcelona for more info.

Also, Outside the City, El Bulli (world Famous), El Raco de Can Fabes.

Some of these places are closed in August. Not sure which have Music, I'm getting this info from my travel materials, not personal experience.

Re: I need to dazzle my wife !

A good place to ask this question would be www.chowhound.com (Spain section). People there are very knowledgeable and a great help when choosing restaurants. Before a Lisbon trip, I got many names... all the places were terrific. Cal Pep in Barcelona is one name I know, but I haven't eaten there personally and don't know if it's a WOW!

I would also recommend visiting www.chowhound.com

I've eaten at Cal Pep and its good, but I recommend its sister restaurant " Passadis del Pep" over Cal Pep for an upscale restaurant.

Also, I'd recommend "Hofmann" dining school.

I lived in Barcelona for many months and have been in/out of there countless times. These are repetitively recommended by all my local colleagues and friends too.

A very upscale restaurant, with excellent food, is Via Veneto. I was lucky enough to be invited there twice, by an aquaintance from Barcelona. He told me it's the restaurant he chooses when he wants to impress.
The restaurant has a website: http://www.viavenetorestaurant.com

Re: I need to dazzle my wife !

by Belsaita

Hoffmann will probably be my choice

What is your idea of "fancy, very fancy"? If ultra-modern-posh but with great food: Moo

I heard great things of Via Veneto as well

I like Senyor Parellada but not really a place to impress IMHO (may be an option for your other evening?) It is nice, but not in the same league as the others

If you don't mind traveling a bit out of the city: Sant Pau (in Sant Pol de Mar, 1h by train). The setting is gorgeous. The food... i did not ate at this one but in it's "twin" restaurant in Tokyo (exactly the same menu except one dish) and it was great

(and forget about El Bulli, you are lucky if you get a reservation one year in advance!!)

have a nice trip! you have many options to make her WOW! :)

language issues

by Belsaita

Catalunya is a bilingual community. Everybody in Catalunya do speak Spanish (or Castellano as we prefer to call it here), but in fact NOT everybody do speak Catalan (about 60% in Barcelona, less in some industrial cities, and more inland Catalunya and smaller towns).

Correction, not 100% of people in Catalunya do speak Spanish. I would better say 98%. There may be a 1% of very old people in remote areas who never needed to learn it. And there may be a 1% of nuts who know perfectly Spanish but refuse to speak it (usually when addressing to Spaniards, as they usually don't mind to use their multilingual knowledge with foreigners). You can find quite a few people who may speak to you in Catalan, but they would switch to Spanish immmediately as soon they notice your accent. Please note that many of us here are using BOTH languages all the time, and sometimes we even do not realize we changed!! Except of course you bump into anyone belonging to the second 1% named above (and this would be plain back luck... just ignore them and ask anyone else)

Catalan is not a dialect of Spanish, but a language on its own, derived from Latin as Spanish, French, Italian... etc. As well, Catalan has its own dialects, and it's spoken by about 10 million people in Catalunya and other surrounding areas (including French Catalonia, Balearic Islands, and – if politics permit – Valencia ;)

If you are interested on learning a bit of Catalan language, have a look to the link below (includes a linguistic tool from the University of Barcelona, which may be useful as well for touristy purposes)

Only suggestions

by seamandrew

Pack light when traveling to Barcelona, especially if you want to use public transportation. It makes your life much easier when jumping on and off the trains for example. Barcelona's climate is quite temperate to bordering tropical with it's location on the Mediterranean. Bring your summer clothes with you even as late as October, but pack some warm clothes for the cool Mediterranean nights. A city as picturesque as Barcelona must be captured on film or digital media. I strongly suggest you bring a camera with either lots of film or lots of storage space (for digitals). You will find a whole lot to photograph in Barcelona and you don't want to be stuck having to take a mental picture. A good guidebook will help you tackle the city. It's a tremendous city with a whole lot to see. Try to plan your trip and your itinerary in advance so that you just might make the best use of your time there. I think you could spend a whole month in Barcelona just sight seeing and still leave wanting to see more.

Daytrip to the Costa Brava region

by HORSCHECK

The Costa Brava region is only about one hour by public transport from Barcelona. Well worth a visit are the towns of Girona (see my Girona page) or Figueres, home of the Salvador Dali Museum.
Last but least the whole Costa Brava coastline with its lovely beaches and rocky bays is worth seeing.

Not Corte Iglesias, but...

by Maurizioago about El Corte Ingles.

El Corte Ingles is Spain's most famous department store chain.

In Plaza Catalunya there is the biggest store of this chain in Barcelona. Here; on the basement you can find a huge supermarket where you can find some gift to take home. I mean something typical from Spain. Turron (see tip on my Spain page; what to buy...); wines. ...
