Poblenou Urban District unlocks the doors to some of the neighborhood’s most interesting buildings at its fourth annual Poblenou Open Day this month. An area overflowing with innovation and creativity, the event celebrates Poblenou’s vibrant atmosphere and its rich artistic output, giving the public the opportunity to visit locations such as Disseny Hub Barcelona as well as smaller and lesser-known venues.
This year’s open day features a total of 85 buildings, including art galleries, artists’ studios, shops, cocktail bars, restaurants and hotels. Each will feature special events and activities, highlighting a wide variety of local culture, art and gastronomy. Restaurants and bars will mark the occasion with one-off menus, while many shops and boutiques will have special offers available. Visitors might also get to meet artists, catch a dance show, hear live music, take part in workshops or hear debates and conferences – often in places that they wouldn’t have the chance to see otherwise.
A highlight of this year’s event is the Urban Festival, taking place from 12pm until 11pm at Àlaba with Tànger, featuring the Van Van street food market with food trucks, live painting, performances, live music and DJs. Visit the website for the full program.
