A spectacular space for all five senses.

When entering the Bluesman Cocktail Bar, located in the basement of the hotel, it can be hard to imagine that this was once the coal bunker. With its fine wood, sumptuous velvet, marble bar, and seductive red walls, this one-of-a-kind speakeasy has become a haven for music lovers and cocktail enthusiasts alike.

It should be no surprise that this space quickly became a meeting place for the people of Barcelona. Antique lamps from the 1920s adorn the walls and set the mood for the impressive live shows that are held here regularly.

This not-so-secret retreat offers a collection of some of the best cocktails in the city. With live music three nights a week, you can enjoy the perfect acoustics alongside an expertly crafted drink made using one of the hundreds of different spirits and liqueurs on hand.

For those tobacco lovers, the Cigar Club, located next to Bluesman Cocktail Bar, if a cigar cellar offering some of the best tobacco in the world. You can enjoy smoking in the elegant leather armchairs in same meeting room where historic figures from the past gathered to talk about cinema, culture, and politics.
