Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year

With the city's Christmas lighting, El Palace Barcelona kicks off a lively schedule of activities and experiences to celebrate this magical time of year.

The festive season is a time of sparkle and merriment, when the Christmas spirit spreads throughout the hotel and sets the scene for an unforgettable celebration. Entering through the festive red entrance way, guests will be immediately transported into a festive atmosphere by the hotel’s signature Christmas tree flanked by Nutcracker soldiers. This year, the Christmas decorations are designed in a classic theme of rich reds, vibrant greens, and golden accents and are echoed throughout the hotel.

In the heart of the city, El Palace Barcelona is the place to be this season, welcoming guests to enjoy the festivities, including the open-air rooftop Christmas cinema, traditional Christmas market, live music, and seasonal Christmas and New Year’s dishes. The talented Chef, Daniel Padró, has added a festive twist to the restaurant’s modern Mediterranean cuisine with special tasting menus and a seasonal afternoon tea.

Don’t forget your four-legged friends! Lulu, the hotel’s Pet Relations Manager has a special Christmas outfit set aside and is ready to welcome new friends with special festive dog treats she whipped up with our Pastry team.

Christmas Activities

The hotel renews its proposals and ideas to offer a winter in renewed classicism in which surprising things will happen, thought not only for guests, but also for the people of Barcelona who, at this time of year, live the city more.

Christmas Market

Looking for that special gift this Christmas? Starting on 27th November and running every Saturday and Sunday until 19th December, El Palace Barcelona is proud to bring together a curated selection of local artisans and craftsman transferring the atmosphere of northern European Christmas markets to the center of Barcelona.

The Christmas Market is free and does not require a prior reservation. Sip on warming mulled wine while exploring the stalls filled with lebkuchen, locally produced jamón iberico, as well as exclusive unisex perfumes by Carner Barcelona which encapsulate the essence of the city!


Christmas Cinema

Back by popular demand, the famous Christmas Cinema returns to the 7th floor Rooftop Garden of El Palace Barcelona.

Nestled amongst the fairy lights and snow-dusted pine trees, the four cozy double cabins are the perfect hideaway for the season, fitted with tartan blankets, cushions, and hot water bottles for guests to bundle up while they embrace the festive season and watch their favourite festive flicks.

Tickets include popcorn, a cup of hot chocolate, or mulled wine per person, which can also be converted into a Grey Goose cocktail. 


Afternoon Christmas Tea

Nothing says Christmas more than a delicious sampling of the sweetest delicacies and pastries paired with a warming cup of tea. Starting on 26th November, El Palace Barcelona’s Christmas-themed Afternoon Tea will be served in the newly restored Great Hall. Live music by pianist Marta Muñoz on Fridays and Fer Tejero on Saturdays and Sundays will accompany the afternoon tea, with a repertoire of classic and contemporary Christmas songs.

Keep an eye out for a special visitor who might make a surprise visit down the chimney on Saturday and Sundays from 26th November – 19th December. You know he can’t resist our sweets and special treats for his reindeer (also available for our four-legged friends!)
