LAuditori for Concerts in Barcelona













l’Auditori – Barcelona’s concert hall for classical and more

There is a concert on every evening in Barcelona, so it is just a matter of picking a flavor. Will it be jazz? Classical? Blues? Indy? Electronic? Barcelona offers a little something for every taste and budget when it comes to live shows. One of the more glamorous places in town to go see a show is L’Auditori, which usually puts on classical concerts.

I was recently at L’Auditori for a show that made up part of a wonderful festival on now in Barcelona, La Festival de Guitarra. This festival features guitarists from all over Spain, and the shows range from classic Spanish guitar to rock n’ roll to Indy. The festival is held in many venues around the city and L’Auditori has quite a few concerts on for La Festival de Guitarra.

Most shows at L’Auditori begin around 8:30 or 9pm. Get there early and have a drink in the bar and cafe. A glass of cava and a mini sandwich makes for a nice pre-show snack. The bar is not fabulous, and honestly, I think they should do a bit more with it, make it a bit more flashy for such a nice place as L’Auditori is (El Palau, for example, has a gorgeous cava and tapas bar for concert-goers, plus a restaurant). There are very few restaurants and cafes in the area surrounding L’Auditori that I would recommend instead of the venue’s bar. The neighborhood L’Auditori is in, is sort of a no-man’s-land, though it is not hard to get to L’Auditori by Tram, bus or Metro.

After a concert at L’Auditori (the acoustics in this concert hall are great, too), head back into the center of the city and have dinner or tapas, or go out for a night-cap at Vinda.
