The place where locals and visitors enjoy Barcelona

Inspired by the romantic garden at the palace of Francesc Cambó (famous politician from the early 20th century) and by the paintings by the modernist artist Ramon Casas, this is possibly the largest, most exclusive roof garden in Barcelona, covering an area of 1,500 m2.

A place filled with secret corners, fragrances and colours, and inspired by the Barcelona of the 20s in all its splendour. Each detail is designed to delight all your senses: ponds, a pool, pergolas, babbling water, over fifty varieties of plants, an haute cuisine restaurant and a solarium that almost lets you touch the clouds.

El Palace Barcelona does not end on the seventh floor. One of the most exciting places to visit is none other than the rooftop.

In this open-air garden, you will find some of the most exciting seasonal activities, such as yoga, pilates, master classes and an open-air cinema – all of which come with a stunning view of the city below.

Gastronomic Pop-Up

El Chalet

With the aim of coping with the accumulated desire to travel, El Palace Barcelona continues to bet on gastronomic pop-ups designed to bring the cuisine of different regions of Europe closer. On this occasion, the Chalet El Palace, a typical cabin of the Alps will offer three closed menus inspired by products and recipes from this delicious mountainous area.

As soon as they walk through the main door of the emblematic hotel, clients will already enter the atmosphere of this region thanks to visual elements such as the elevator transformed into a cable car that will take clients up to the Alpine sky. Once inside El Chalet, whose wooden structure is reminiscent of the typical buildings of this famous mountain range, the checkered tablecloths, the seats covered with sheep's fur and the windows that open the gaze to an exterior strewn with vegetation and flowers cyclamen envelop diners in an atmosphere more typical of other latitudes.

Open-air Winter Cinema

Winter in Barcelona is very special and Hotel El Palace makes it even better.

Go up to the seventh floor of the hotel to experience a different kind of cinema. We have reconstructed typical wooden cabins from the Alps to recreate a fairytale winter.

Who has not sat comfortably on the sofa with a blanket and some candy to see successes of yesteryear? The Palace Hotel intends to recreate that homely and hibernal feeling and for this, double wooden chalet will be placed in the Roof Garden. Inside, two seats with two fluffy blankets in the form of an armchair, hot drinks such as chocolate and mulled wine and winter sweets to accompany the screening of the films in original version with Spanish subtitles:

  • Great Gatsby: Mondays
  • Casino Royale: Tuesdays
  • Grease: Wednesdays
  • Notting Hill: Thursdays
  • Gran Hotel Budapest: ​​Fridays
  • ET: Saturdays
  • Bridget Jones: Sundays

A nice way to spend an afternoon with family, friends or as a couple.

All films will be shown in English with Spanish subtitles. (VOSE)

Yoga Class

Our Yoga Classes are provided by Frizzant Barcelona. The concept materializes and fuses the culture of well-being with gastronomy and cultural diversity, accompanied by large doses of imagination.

The nature of the yoga goes beyond the traditional precepts of yoga. It encourage modalities adapted to the contemporary world and the needs of the current rhythm, close and communicative teaching methods where teachers are the forerunners of the philosophy of unity through relationships with their students.

Frizzant is the modern evolution of yoga, a dynamic, social and urban practice that shuns any dogma and encourages body expression and emotional development.

The pool

Our rooftop pool is the perfect place to enjoy a siesta in the sun or a refreshing dip. 

Do you fancy a swim up high? If that's the case, you cannot miss the outdoor pool at El Palace, the gem of our roof garden. Inspired by the design of the hotel's ancient Roman baths, it is ideal for enjoying a swim in the lap of luxury, sunbathing under the Barcelona skies and taking in the wonderful panoramic views of the city while you have a delicious appetiser prepared in our excellent Rooftop Garden.
