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 !!

Flamenco in Barcelona, ole!

Flamenco is art and it is part of the culture of Spain that consists on typical dance with music of Andalusia.

Although, Flamenco is not the most traditional in Barcelona as are the “castellers” and “sardanas”, it has been named Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and it is worth to see and enjoy it if Barcelona is your one and only stop in Spain.

To enjoy their color and passion, you must attend a “tablao” which is a space in which flamenco shows are performed. An environment where as well as music, dance and rhythm you can have gastronomy and where the “rebujitos” and “sangrias” can not miss. Here, in the “tablaos” is where you can hear the famous “Ole” with which the “cantaores” and “bailaores” are encouraged.

If you wonder where to see “flamenco” in Barcelona, there are many well known places.

The “Tablao Flamenco Cordobés placed in Ramblas is one of the best-known “tablaos”in the city. It is inspired by Nazarí art and its interior reminds the Alhambra in Granada.

In the middle of Eixample you will find the Palacio del Flamenco. A different tablao that is placed in a former renovated theater and makes it the largest flamenco show in Barcelona.

A reference of “flamenco” in Barcelona is Los Tarantos. A tablao in Plaça Reial that combines the most important flamenco figures with emerging talent full of passion and energy.

The best flamenco tablaos in Barcelona are very close to the Hotel Negresco Princess located in the center of Barcelona and it is also very easy to reach them from the Hotel Barcelona Princess which is perfectly connected to the center of Barcelona.
