Many hotel restaurants disappoint, but that's certainly not the case at the humorously named Moo. With a recent restaurant makeover and stylish new bar under its belt, you won’t want to miss this one out.
Olivia Plaza
Its purpose is simple - to provide pampering, spiritual relief and a sense of tranquility, which, given its location, no other hotel can pull off quite so well.
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.
Caelum
Although tucked away in a corner of the Gothic district we recommend you make the effort to find Caelum. Known as the most exquisite cafe and bakery in the city Caelum serves the best pastries and coffee in Barcelona. And we've tried a lot.

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.
Andu
Still relatively unknown with tourists Andu provides a real taste of Catalonian lifestyle with lethal cocktails served up in atmospheric surroundings. The perfect place to escape the pretension of the more tourist-crammed bars in the city.
