The cheerful Irish owners of La Cava Cakery have paired two great pleasures in life – gourmet cupcakes and cava. The cosy shop, located on a main thoroughfare in Gracia, is a well-designed blend of stylish light fixtures, tall tables and bar stools, plus an Instagram-ready array of cupcakes in a range of flavors from salted caramel and red velvet to the more traditional chocolate and strawberry. Enjoy a signature cupcake with a mug of their specialty coffee or flute of cava. Cupcakes also are available by order to celebrate a special event, birthday, or business meeting. All cupcakes are baked on site using quality ingredients.

A Barcelona Barbershop that Rocks Shellshock, located in the heart of Gracia, is a traditional Barcelona barbershop specializing in classic men’s haircuts. This small corner on Torrent de l’Olla is carefully decorated and full of details that accentuate its small, indie business character. The shop pays homage to the barber’s craft throughout its different periods and cultures, and it leans more toward rock and roll, skate and photography, than the traditional fashion world and hair salons. With only two chairs, clients can be assured of personalized attention for their stylish haircut or hot towel shave.
