Sample Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival and Acclimation

Welcome to Barcelona, the city where jazz melodies dance through the historic streets. Settle into your hotel and then gather for a welcome dinner at the iconic 7 Portes, where the spirit of Barcelona’s café society still lingers. Post-dinner, we’ll head to the Harlem Jazz Club, a crucible of musical fusion, for a night where jazz meets its vibrant cousins – flamenco, Latin beats, and more.

Day 2

Explore the Jazz Age’s legacy in Barcelona, starting with a tour of the Mies Van der Rohe Pavilion, a modernist marvel. We’ll see how art and music intersect at the Miro Foundation before enjoying lunch with a view. Rest, then reconvene for an intimate jazz concert at the Conservatori del Liceu, a historical venue.

Day 3

Immerse yourself in Barcelona’s swing revival with a dance workshop at Swing Maniacs. Afterward, Monvinic, dubbed the world’s best wine bar, awaits with a selection of Catalan wines and cheeses. The day culminates with a Jazz Festival concert, followed by post-concert tapas.

Day 4

Begin with breakfast at the hotel, then enjoy free time before lunch at Habana Vieja Restaurant, echoing Cuban jazz history. A stroll through the Born neighborhood precedes an evening filled with performances by Cuban jazz artists, with dinner at your leisure.

Day 5

Discover the flamenco-jazz connection with a hands-on rhythm session and a cajón demonstration. A master class with a Jazz Fest artist offers unique insights before attending their concert, blending learning with listening.

Day 6

Experience Barcelona’s vermouth culture with a tasting and historical talk. The day’s highlight is a concert at the Palau de la Música, an architectural gem, followed by a celebratory gathering at the Palau Bar.

Day 7: Departure and Reflection

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and some last-minute explorations. As the trip concludes, we part ways at the airport, carrying the jazz-infused spirit of Barcelona with us.
