Founded in Barcelona in 2003, Le Cool publishes the weekly ‘Le Cool Magazine,’ in 10 different cities across Europe. As well, they have launched the second edition of their Weird and Wonderful Guide to Barcelona.

This new innovative guide book combines stories and spots where a friend would take you,  as well as depicts Barcelona’s present landscape through design, photos and illustrations.

The Weird and Wonderful Guide to Barcelona is not a tourist guide, but a compendium of secrets. It’s written by locals who know and love their city, who carefully hoard their gems to share with visitors and fellow citizens. Our experience in the city is ordered out by hours, from sunrise at 6am to a sweet snack at 5:30am thus making the guide very easy to navigate following a chronological order.

In this guide we can find out how to sneak pass the guards to have a swim in Barcelona’s Olympic pool, read interesting references to Gaudi’s architect from a different perspective, as well as finding 5º 1ª Hair Saloon which is equipped with a cocktail bar and trims the hair of local music artists.
