Betahaus Creative beast

Two heads are better than one; that’s the idea of Betahaus. The more brainpower in one space the better. Originating in Berlin, this innovative work area and community for creative professionals and entrepreneurs is the new big thing happening all over the globe, where creativity and ideas can be shared and explored. Barcelona’s Betahaus is home to 132 members, 38 start-up companies and 97 freelancers. Talk about an impressive résumé.

This private club is a 2000 square meter workplace and event space that is made up of a funky café, private rooms, larger communal work areas, and terraces—so you can get some work done while also getting your tan on, lounging in the sun. With all that space there’s also room for workshops, launch parties and a bunch of cultural events. Although this all may sound dandy, pump the breaks. In order to get one of their exclusive memberships you need to pass the interview process before being deemed Betahaus worthy. If you do get selected to join the club you also have special benefits at the other locations in places like Copenhagen and Vienna, and soon New York City. Betahaus is one full house of tech savvy, aspiring individuals from all over the world.

Antidoto28 Studio and shop

Antidoto28 is a design studio, art gallery and shop run by graphic designer and DJ Carlos David Canillas, aptly located in the ever-cool district of Raval. In this creative space there is a showroom displaying work done in their studio from graphic design to hand made prints to paintings. In the studio they offer a program of workshop sessions for the public to try their hand at silk-screen printing and create their own designs. They sell a collection of hand-made limited edition t-shirts, sweaters, tote bags and other accessories in their shop.

Void Indie flicks for those who know

Opened in 1999 by Colombian cinephile Vicky Ramirez, this cinema club situated just off Plaça dels Angels offers one of the most complete selections of independent film to be found in Barcelona.

Titles are arranged in folders, archived by country (USA, France, Germany, Austria, Australia, New Zealand, Eastern and Northern Europe, UK) and sub-filed under directors. New DVDs come in every one to two weeks. Apart from extremely rare independent cinema to more commercial indie flicks, Void also stocks a nice selection of television series (24, The Wire) and posters of classic movies.

For those who prefer to experience film in full effect, Void’s back section—Zelig—serves as a screening room, which parties can rent by the hour. As far as events, the video club also co-organizes the annual Betting on Shorts Festival. Check in for new releases and special screenings.
