Poblenou has everything a digital nomad could want: it’s a lively area that’s close to the beach, with plenty of fantastic bars and restaurants. Razzmatazz, one of the city’s most famous nightclubs, is also in this area. The Rambla de Poblenou runs all the way up from Bogatell Beach up to Diagonal Avenue, and is lined with tons of restaurants, bars, and ice cream shops. Vegans should check out Blubar and Vrutal, almost directly across from each other on opposite sides of the Rambla. By contrast, nearby Can Recasens is known for its charcuterie platters, cheese, and great wine.
Poblenou used to be Barcelona’s industrial center, and the city rebranded it as “22@” and converted it into an innovation district. Many startups and tech businesses are located in Poblenou, so there are plenty of coworking spaces and techy people around. A couple of spaces to check out include WeWork and the beachy Maui Beach Coworking. Espai Joliu and its sister brand Orval are cute, plant-filled cafés popular with digital nomads.
