Fine Dining

Hotel Arts Barcelona boasts a collection of eateries in addition to Enoteca at the helm of Chef Pérez.

Enoteca Paco Pérez has two Michelin stars and a menu full of Mediterranean flavours under Chef Pérez’s innovative vision. Savour the freshness of the sea fused with the products of the garden and the mountains. With a selection of fresh and local products, try a pairing from the sommelier, who has more than 700 references from the hotel’s own winery.

Marina Coastal Food, which is open throughout the summer, has an eclectic menu that was influenced by coastal cuisine around the world. With exciting views across the Mediterranean, the restaurant is seated beside the pool, making for the perfect summer dining location.

Similarly, guests can enjoy delicious cocktails at P41 Bar, tapas at the simply named Bites, and breakfast at Lokal.

Nearby Attractions

A short walk from some of Barcelona’s most notable attractions like La Sagrada Familia and Gaudí’s Parc Guell, Hotel Arts Barcelona is a must-visit for tourists in the city. While the accommodations are some of the best in Barcelona, a stop at the hotel proves to be worthwhile, with the spa and dining options available onsite.

The building towers the city, making it an attraction in itself with the skyline it creates along the coast of Barcelona.

Arts and Culture

An homage to its namesake, Hotel Arts Barcelona is home to a new initiative in partnership with WE COLLECT, Madrid’s leading art gallery, aimed at spotlighting Europe’s emerging artists while immersing guests in local art and culture.

With an exciting collection of more than 500 original artworks, the gallery opened its doors in July 2022 with installations from some of Spain’s most notable artists. In 2023, the gallery will host exhibitions by Spanish artists Beatriz Dubois, Ramón Muñoz and Carla Fuentes.

Relax at the Spa

Tucked away on the 42nd and 43rd floors of the hotel, 43 The Spa is a luxurious getaway with beautiful views of the Mediterranean. The spa boasts 3,000 square feet along with treatments like massages, facials, and a skincare line Natura Bissé.

In addition, the spa has separate relaxation areas for women and men and includes a fitness centre and fitness packages for guests.
