THE DESTINATIONS

Barcelona, Kos, London, Phuket; we could go on…

Our EBS Grad Club members started their adventures in 4 very different locations. From the urban, city vibe to exotic beaches, discover what made their destination so unique.

SPAIN

The first word that comes to anyone’s mind when thinking of Barcelona is colour. Colours of the fruit in the market place “La Bouqueria”, colours of beautiful beaches and parasols, colours of the city parks and their stunning Gaudi architecture. Colour is everywhere in the Catalonian capital. No matter if you are rambling down La Ramblas, enjoying tapas and sangria in a local bar, climbing up Montjuiic to see the fountains or playing beach volley, everywhere in the city you will be flooded with amazing colour.

 

Meeting new people has never been so easy! In Barcelona you find people from all over the world. Catalan speaking natives, people who have just arrived (like you) and people who are travelling around the world, artists, businessmen, bartenders… you name it Barcelona has it.

 

Whatever you are looking for, you will find it here!

 

A party animal? Amazing international nightclubs on the beach and in the city are waiting for you!

 

Enjoy tasting good food and better wine? It would be hard for you to resist the temptation to try all of Barcelona’s quaint tapas bars. Don’t worry about the calories, you can easily burn them during a beach volley session or running along the promenade. Or simply walk through the characteristic city streets and discover Barcelona’s art masterpieces while burning off lunch.

 

It’s impossible not to fall in love with this city and #EBSBarcelona completes the package. We have 18 fully-equipped bar and free pouring stations, a theory and flair space, a huge terrace, an awesome hostel, with a private rooftop pool, situated in the heart of Barcelona; as well as plenty of activities organised for you. After the course you can use MatchStaff.com to get an excellent bartending job in one of the best city locations. What are you waiting for?
