Born is a trendy neighborhood that borders the Gothic Quarter and is known for its designer boutiques, cute shops, and great bar scene. Full of winding streets and narrow corridors, you never know what you're going to find on a wander through Born—one day it could be an artisanal coffee shop and the next it could be hidden courtyard bar. While you’re exploring, you can visit the Picasso Museum and grab some food at the Santa Caterina market. Don’t miss the Palau de la Musica Catalana, a colorful modernist masterpiece near Urquinaona metro station, or take a stroll through Cuitadella Park, on the opposite side of the neighborhood. The Antic Teatre is a great spot to grab a drink, and the Passeig del Born is lined with bars. Try legendary (but often busy) Cal Pep for seafood tapas or En Aparté for French small plates. Coworking spaces in the area include Aticco Urquinaona and MOB Caterina, though there are plenty of other options nearby. For cafés, try Citizen Café or Alsur, but know they restrict laptop hours on busy days.
