On November 28th, Barcelona's chic and trendy spend the evening on Passeig De Gracia, shopping their hearts out. Barcelona Shopping Night is one of the city's most anticipated yearly events with stores like Diesel and Hermes showcasing their latest designs and often hiring models to mingle with the locals outside their doors.
Many stores offer one-off discounts and raffles for free clothes and merchandise. Others serve free mojitos (to those of age), to passersby and have mock photo shoots for those who want to 'play.'

Shopping Night in Barcelona takes place on the city's fanciest street, Passeig De Gracia. Starting with the Apple Store at the top of Plaza Catalunya, the street has a variety of high-end stores, boutique gems, and chains such as H&M, Zara and Pull & Bear. The night usually begins around 8 pm and goes until after midnight. The city is packed with people of all ages, so be sure to get an early start on the evening.
It's also worth checking out some of the hotels as many of them offer free food and drinks as well as entertainment. The Regina Hotel is having a Shopping Night celebration, but be sure to get on the guest list in advance.
