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 !!

Sun, views and solidarity magic with the Abracadabra Foundation on the terrace of the Negresco Princess

As every year, all the people who are part of the Negresco Princess Hotel in Barcelona, choose a solidary cause that will be our active and voluntary contribution to the social, economic and environmental improvement of our society.

For the whole team, choosing which will be this annual social action represents an important decision and a commitment. This year, after studding several proposals, our winning cause was the Abracadabra Foundation. A solidarity project that gives magic and smiles to children staying in hospitals to make them have a more pleasant stay. As they say: “Thanks to the solidarity magic we managed to provide an extra dose of illusion very necessary to overcome the difficult moments.”

Last Sunday we were lucky to have a very special magician at the Negresco Princess hotel in Barcelona. Carles Mag, a solidary magician of the Abracadabra Foundation who came to bring us plenty of illusion to adults and children with their visual and participative games. Incredible effects, cards, impossible knots, sponges, coins and many other things that impressed all of us.

An event for all customers and friends who wanted to share with us the illusion of solidarity magic, both in La Terrazza Negresco and in the Negresco Restaurant.

In addition, coinciding with the # SetmanaTerrasses18 that takes place in Barcelona from June 1st to 10th and that organizes the Gremi d’Hotels de Barcelona , on the 3rd we will also have Carles Mag who will once again bring the illusion to all of us, and on Sunday 10th June will be the magician David el Mag who will surprise us with live and impressive magic at the Hotel Barcelona Princess.

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.
