If you’re in Barcelona for MWC next week, I will definitely envy you getting the chance to hit up my perennial favorite event, Swedish Beers on Wednesday at 6:30pm. If you’re in London and in mobile, you already know about Swedish Beers (and if you don’t, find out quick); the Barcelona installment is always a treat and a source of great conversation and good times. And, of course, it’s run by lovely MH pal Helen Keegan. Go, be merry, meet lots of good and interesting folk… and have a few for me.
Our venue for the evening is Dostrece which is a two floor bar and restaurant. Yes, that’s right, a restaurant too! This means that they will be serving food from their normal menu all evening so you’ll get a chance to eat too. Prices are reasonable and it’s a mix of Mexican, Spanish and Turkish flavours. @BCN_unlike reviews it here.
The venue holds up to 300 folks at any one time so it’s a little bigger than last year’s venue, Belchica, and it can be found behind La Boqueria market and the nearest metro station is Liceu. Just walk up La Rambla, walk past La Boqueria and Teatro Grec, then take a left at Calle Carme (or Carrer del Carme) and Dostrece is at number 40 (Google map here). (They also have free wifi if you’re desperate to demo your latest iphone app.)
Doors will be opening at 6.30pm and we’ll be open until late so there’s plenty of time to drop by and enjoy the fun, meet interesting people and soak up the Swedish Beers vibe.
(Only thing more disappointing than my absence at the event is that it’s not at Manchester Bar, but that’s neither here nor there )
