The Barcelona EDITIONWhat we love: Sleek style in the heart of Old Town
-Scenic rooftop terrace
-Notable dining and drinking spots
-Design-conscious, but still comfortable
Straddling a few of Barcelona’s Old Town neighborhoods, including the tourist site-heavy Gothic Quarter and creative hub El Bourne, this former office tower now houses an outpost of Ian Schrager’s Edition hotel brand. Like its sister hotels, the Spanish version—opened in fall 2018—celebrates boutique-chic, with walnut-paneled walls, sculptural staircases, and artist-inspired furnishings, all topped by a 10th-floor, garden terrace serving drink and lights bites surrounded by city views. Other on-site imbibing options include the Punch Room for billiards and spiked punch served in silver bowls; Bar Veraz, serving all-day dining and locally-made vermouth and other spirts under the direction of noted chef Sebastian Mazzola; and Cabaret, a speakeasy-style supper club and cocktail bar hidden in the hotel’s basement. After all that indulgence, retreat to one of the 100 sophisticated rooms and suites, each with a neutral color palette, marble bathrooms with rain showers, Band & Olufsen bluetooth speakers, Nespresso machines, and signature chairs by designer Oscar Tusquets.
