Located right next to La Barceloneta, the lower section of La Ribeira district of Barcelona is called El Born, named after the 19th market on Carrer del Comerç.
El Born is probably the trendiest and one of the most entertaining neighborhoods of Barcelona; home of artists, galleries, designers and creative studios. Shoppers will enjoy the many independent stores promoting local creation.
At night, the district gets animated with its hundreds of hype bars and restaurants full of a mix of an international and local crowd. Definitely the best place to experience Barcelona like a hipster!
