Having dispensed with their independence police conflicts, I slid into Barcelona unimpeded and ready for some serious catch up at Saint Jordi’s Rock & Roll Palace with blazing fast wifi in one of my favorite large hostels on the planet. Fortified with some tasty tapas, I got down to business in the Cavern Club named for the club in Liverpool in which the Beatles made history.
Each floor in the hostel is named for a famous rock club. The Whiskey a Go-Go is my floor with the hallways decorated with images of its glory days. There’s a tribute to CBGBs and many other favorites like the Fillmore in San Francisco. I already did a photo essay of the place two years ago, but I’ll throw in some new shots.
I feel right at home surrounded by my music in a city that features the architecture of Gaudí. What a nice laid back city for a pleasant chill, and it’s my second visit so I don’t feel the need to run around like a madman. Manhattan’s next so I’ll relax while I can.
