The Spa
The Mandarin group once again out does themselves with this 1000-metre retreat where all of your stress and excess partying can be counteracted.
The One
Eclipse
W Barcelona is the most anticipated hotel opening in the city's history, so it makes sense that the all-encompassing destination station would have a few nice watering holes thrown into its heady mix.
Museum of Modern Art
Mirror Hotel
As the name suggests, this modern development is covered head to toe in mirrors. Recently picking up an award for its innovative design, Mirror Hotel embodies chic and sleek.
Villa Emilia
Style meets class at Hotel Villa Emilia; dine in the sleek candlelit restaurant or hit the rooftop bar for some live jazz.

Ra Bar
A café with real energy and charm, Ra is perfect for a lazy afternoon, or alternatively, to kick-start a wild night out…
Hotel Arts
Hotel Arts is arguably Barcelona's most famous hotel, and is home to a Michelin-starred restaurant, world-class spa and star-studded clientele.
Hotel Jazz
The best feature of the Hotel Jazz, apart from the roof terrace, is its location right between Plaça Catalunya and Paseo de Gracia.
Reial Cercle Artístic
This permanent show is dedicated to Salvador Dali one of Spain's most famous artists and is appropriately set in the gorgeous Gothic District.

Born to be beautiful' is the tagline at Coquette, an industrial-inspired space in the trendy shopping district of El Born.

La França
Ooh la la! Catering exclusively to kinky couples, La França brings sex back to the city with moody interiors and naughty behaviour positively encouraged inside. Perfect for affairs of the heart - or just plain affairs.

A recent addition to Barcelona's ever-growing choice of awe-inspiring accommodations, Hotel Bagués is another Derby-owned property in a super-central location on Las Ramblas.
Barceló Raval
The reservations book at Barceló Raval is jam-packed with fashion types thanks to its location in one of the city's trendiest districts.
Hotel Omm
Hotel Omm is a marvel of modern design and has more awe-inspiring amenities than you could ever possibly use in a single stay. Highlights include a Michelin-starred restaurant and on-site spa.
Salero
Although you could slink into Salero for a sumptuous supper we prefer it as a fabulous place for late-night cocktails. Its romantic atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for date night.
The White Bar
Hotel bars can be hit or miss, but the White Bar - attached to the Chic & Basic Hotel on Calle Princesa - is an excellent place to head pre-dinner, post-dinner or even for dinner.
W Living Room
As you'd expect of a watering hole inside W Barcelona, W Living Room offers a stylish, sophisticated space in which to kick back, relax and watch the well-heeled world go by.
Gimlet
The perfect place to come for pre-club drinks before painting the rest of the town red, Gimlet has become something of a local institution among cocktail-loving locals.
Bar Pepino
Eccentric décor and an eclectic mix of clientele - Bar Pepino is the perfect spot for a slightly more unusual night out in Barcelona... 
Bar Lobo
Drinking and eating is more a full-time job in Barcelona than a casual pastime, which is why we love Bar Lobo, which does it oh-so well.
Santa Maria
One of the Borne district's most renowned restaurants Santa Maria is frequented by a loyal following of foodies who lap up the consistently excellent food and always-reasonable prices.
Comerc 24
With El Bulli acolyte Carles Abellan at the helm Comerc 24's menu is as much the work of an artist as it is a chef. Sit savour and enjoy.
Ca L’Isidre
An impressive wine list, excellent food and super-friendly service ensure the continued popularity of Ca L'Isidre. The art crowd can't get enough.
Arola
Following on from the success of Madrid-based restaurant La Broche, chef Sergi Arola's eponymous Barcelona debut is housed (rather fittingly) within the super stylish Hotel Arts and has become a hip hangout in its own right.
Chic & Basic Born
This enticing former nobleman's mansion takes the concept of 'cheap chic' one step further with the sexy purple, red and green LED lighting system that permeates throughout the interiors of this imaginative design hotel.
