|Our Barcelona Hostel discovers 5 facts about The Barcelona Shopping Night ...|
Fact 1.- The shopping night is a special event that has already been successful in other European cities. It's going to be held in Barcelona on thursday on occasion of the lighting of Barcelona' s Christmas decoration. At our Barcelona Hostel we think it's a good reason to take the streets and enjoy these exciting pre-Christmas activities, don't you?
Fact 2.- Where’s the event going to be held? Most of the stores in Passeig de Gràcia are going to participate: Armani, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Loewe, Tiffany …. Maybe too expensive for Barcelona Backpackers? Don’t worry, you'll find many other shops at Passeig de Gracia with affordable prices, shops that we really love at our Barcelona Hostel: Benetton, Mango, H&M, Zara …
Fact 3.- Timing? All shops will remain open until 12pm but bear in mind that some of them -as well as restaurants and hotels- will celebrate some parties inside after the closing time. There will be also another party inside the big tent sponsored by Harper's Bazaar.
Fact 4.- How does it work? You’ll have to get your BSN passport and bring it with you during your shopping. The passport contains all the information you need about shops and stores, a map and a detailed guide of the event. Where to get it? At the information desk in front of The Bulevard Rosa (Pg. de Gràcia, 55). For each 20 € you spend shopping, you'll get a flower sealed on your passport and some points to participate in a raffle at the end of the night.
Fact 5.- And what about if in the meanwhile you’re hungry? Here are some suggestions from our Barcelona Hostel, places where to have a bit and a drink for less than 10€
