There is always that confusion if the correct way to express it, is GO SHOPPING or DO THE SHOPPING, well, the thing is that we´re shopping at night in Barcelona.
On November 30th, The Shopping Night is held in Barcelona on Passeig de Gràcia, city´s most posh street full of Catalan modernism and the most famous brands from everywhere.
The history of this event goes back to late 60’s to so called La Gauche Divine and this year marks the 50th anniversary of a movement which brought the ´´crème de la crème´´ of art, music, literature and cinema of those times to Barcelona and contributed to an artistic and creative explosion, that today forms the identity of Barcelona´s lifestyle.
Stores, restaurants, bars will be open from 8 pm until early morning. Not only the main street, but the area of the promenade and the adjacent streets will be scene of the most glamorous spirit of the Gauche Divine. Iconic Palau Robert recreates the atmosphere of freedom and cultural emergence that was lived in Cadaqués ( Dalí´s homeland) in the sixties, while in the area of design schools, just on the corner, we´ll revive the true revolution of the miniskirt.
Just imagine literally a shopping therapy on one of the most beautiful streets of Europe dressed for Xmas, restaurants and stores open at the night, art performances in each corner… can you imagine ? Now tell me you can´t miss it.
