Be Chic, Be a Giver...Pasage de La concepcion.

Santa Eulalia- the luxury store, +Boca Grande  the chic restaurant in Pasage de la Concepcion and Rabat: nice places to go in Barcelona...

“Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans-it’s up to you.”Karl Lagerfeld

The season of giving is here. “Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them.” Carlos Ruiz Zafón,

Today let's go for a chic tour : Pasage de La Concepcion between Rambla de Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia. 

If you enter from Pg de Gracia you will see the alluring store Santa Eulalia; on your left designed by a New York architect  in 2011, it has 2000m2, pop up stores, a café and a terrace. It is the only place in Barcelona where you'll find your most wanted red soles loubis , multibrands shoes and bags, orignial Smytson diaries, women and men prêt à porter as well as the art of custom made suits and shirts.

On the other side you also have D&G store.

As you go inside the Pasage, you have the SushiShop, the french franchise of made at the moment sushis.They are excellent.  You can also have a miso soup on the go. 
In this small passage there are 2 Tragaluz restaurants, a student residence...

And you also have Boca Grande, where you get fresh sea food, salads, some tapas.. But the Boca Chica beside it, is a chic wooden cocktail bar, cozy with beautiful art , the apartment on top is also very chic ... You really can just sit there and feel at home, have a drink, something to "picar"...It is open form 5pm onwards. And the most interesting place is the bathroom, please go and check it specially on weekend nights, you really won't be disappointed and let me know about your experience there.

On Pg de Gracia, coming out from the Pasage,we have the minimalist and elegant Rabat store. It has a great exhibition of jewels, the best watchmaking brands in a chic and relaxed environment. If you need to make a very special gift that's the place for you, you will get inspired with their stylish jewels while enjoying a glass of champagne in a comfortable atmosphere. 

Across you have Vinçon, the ultimate design store. You will find everything from novelties to gadgets,and from kitchen supplies to essential objects for the home.

If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.  ~George MacDonald
