Life's a beach
Although the summer is on the wane it’s not quite extinguished just yet, a new initiative based on social networking and digital platforms has just been launched that highlights one of Barcelona’s most interesting and sometimes overlooked options, the chiringuitos (beach bars) located on the city’s most stunning beaches. There are 18 in all and they have increasingly become more sophisticated in their offerings, from cocktails to gastronomy, a simple caña or a quasi nightclub. For visitors and residents alike tuchiringuitobcn is a guide to the latest events and offers available in these most emblematic of Barcelona beach lifestyle venues bringing together all the required essential information. Maps, weather forecasts, reviews and photographs are all collated under the web, facebook page and special application that can be downloaded from their web.
