Time Out reveals the world's 40 coolest neighbourhoods right now

Time Out releases annual list of the best neighbourhoods around the world, chosen for fun, food, culture and community spirit

LONDON, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Time Out revealed today the top 40 coolest neighbourhoods around the world: the places that balance great local culture, food and fun with support and kindness for their communities during the turmoil of 2020.

Since 2018, the annual list has been collated from the opinions of locals via the annual Time Out Index survey of over 38,000 global city residents, answering where they most loved spending their time out around their city. To rank the list this year, Time Out's global network of editors and experts factored in not just great vibes, food, drink, nightlife and independent culture, but also community spirit, praising the neighbourhoods where people showed unconditional love and support for the communities and local businesses who represent the soul of the city.

The neighbourhood which reached the number one spot, being named the coolest neighbourhood in the world, is Esquerra de l'Eixample in Barcelona. Despite its image as a residential part of the Catalan capital, it has shown incredible community spirit in 2020 with neighbourhood initiatives like the Hidrogel Sessions, in which neighbours organised mass dance parties on their balconies during lockdown. It's also home to a number of vital gathering spaces, like the community-run Espai Germanetes garden, and great independent businesses such as Odd Kiosk: the world's first LGBTQ+ magazine kiosk.

James Manning, International Editor of Time Out, said: "With global travel in disarray, this year our annual list of the world's coolest neighbourhoods is less about planning your next trip and more about celebrating the hotspots that are pointing the way forward for city life. In tough times, neighbourhoods are more important than ever - and these are places where the soul of the city is on full display, thanks to independent businesses, local culture and community initiatives. Consider this list a worldwide shout-out to the strength, spirit and resilience of city-dwellers."

Time Out is encouraging city-dwellers to share their favourite neighbourhood spots through #LoveLocal.
