The rain marks this All Saints bridge in which many celebrate Halloween (even if it is with a ‘spooky’ manicure for the occasion or one of Zara’s models to dress up) and others do not skip the tradition of honoring those who already They’re not here.

This long weekend, the last of October, which joins with Monday the first of November, the most gourmet are in luck. The gastro offer of Madrid and Barcelona is adorned for the occasion and offers evenings and special culinary proposals. Take aim!

Heaven and Hell at The Barcelona EDITION

More literal than ever, the stairs that ascend to paradise or descend to hell materialize in this quote from The Barcelona EDITION, the Editions chain hotel in El Born. If we listen to the little angel that we have on our shoulder, we go up to The Roof, the roof of the building where a DJ set by Ignasi awaits us at 8pm. at midnight and a special Halloween cocktail offer. If we listen to the imp, we will go down to Punch Room, a speakeasy-style place where you can taste signature punches designed for Halloween and dance from 11pm to 3am to the rhythm of what Pablo Sánchez plays.

Drink a ‘Draculín’ on the heights of Madrid’s Gran Vía at Le Tavernier

Le Tavernier is one of the last rooftops to open in the center of Madrid, and one of our favorites for its very Galician menu and a space with spectacular views. On Halloween, in addition to all this, you can try his Draculín, a 100% instagrammable cocktail based on Bombay Bramble Gin, strawberry syrup, lime juice and triple sec, and discover the most ‘spooky’ version of this terrace, decorated for the occasion.
