Hot summer arrives in June, long hours of sun, blue sky and the desire to visit the terraces of Barcelona.

We all know, June is the month of the terraces!

In addition, Mr. Majestyk, Raquel Leah, Doza, Dj Gonzo or Parker-T are the dj’s that will entertain these fantastic sunsets, so you only have to worry about choosing if you prefer to listen to their trepidating rhythms or be the king of the dance floor.  What’s your choice?

But first a recommendation… if you want to start the summer in a good way, on Thursday, June 7, come to the fun party we have prepared with the best barber in Barcelona, Vicenç Moretó , moving the scissors to the rhythm of swing, ragtime and live jazz by the band The Happy Noise.  The most hipster night and the best cocktail wait for you in #LaTerrazzaNegresco. And to start the weekend, come to the pool terrace of The Gym Bar at the Barcelona Princess Hotel where there will be a Funk, Rock and Soul concert performed live by a eleven musicians band.

Don´t miss it !!
