Almost always with a glance, one of these glances that cross your soul and produce chills like this delicious ceviche of sea bass with avocado that starts the wonderful menu.

Literary dinner with Francesc Torralba, culture comes back to the Negresco Restaurant

We start the year with culture. Culture, philosophy and literature, a combination that you can not miss. The philosopher and writer Francesc Torralba will present ‘Desfici’ his first narrative book in the Negresco Restaurant.

After the success of our first literary dinner, the culture is definitely installed in the Negresco Restaurant! What do we have prepared? A spectacular tasting dinner designed by our chef Jon García and entertained by Francesc Torralba talking about books, philosophy, current subjects and culture, lots of culture.

Throughout his career, Francesc Torralba has received several essay awards and has published more than ninety philosophy books on a wide range of topics. He publishes in several specialized magazines and is also very present in the media both in Catalonia and in the Spanish State. Currently, he teaches History of Contemporary Philosophy and Philosophical Anthropology and alternates his teaching activity with writing.

In our first experience with literary dinners, we had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful evening with theater director Juan Lluís Bozzo presenting his book “Pepe y yo“, in memory of the friendship he had for more than 20 years with the actor and humorist Pepe Rubianes. On this occasion, the popular philosopher Francesc Torralba will present us his first work of narrative, ‘Desfici’ three stories with philosophical basis about the essence and human behavior, about the existence of things, their expiration, the time of the experience and the death.

And, what could be better than accompanying it all with the best gastronomic proposal? The restaurant Negresco wanted to surprise the lucky attendees with a selection of 8 dishes and 2 desserts, all of this with Estrella Damm beers (collaborator of the event). Once again, from Hotel Negresco Princess we continue to promote the cultural activity of Barcelona with the Tr3sC Culture Club. A whole challenge included in the hashtag # NegrescoésCultura

Would you like to come and share this literary dinner with us?  It’s very easy, enter our Facebook and participate in the draw for two tickets, you have until Wednesday January 31, 2018 to participate.

Come and enjoy this occasion to talk about the great obsessions of the human condition and, of course, of any other subjects as in any dinner where the conversation simply flows.

Happy 2018, the best is yet to come …

A new year is about to begin and the best way to say goodbye to this 2017 is reminding all those actions in which the Hotel Negresco Princess and Barcelona Princess have participated and are related to the city of Barcelona, gastronomy, culture, sports, sustainability and environment .

During the 2017…

We were in solidarity with our cause in favor of Cottolengo of Alegre´s  Father and collaborating with other foundations such as Trinijove, ARED, Barcelona Forum District, Action against Hunger, Rotary Foundation, among others. In addition, Santiago Hernández, Director of the Hotel Barcelona Princess, was awarded for his generosity and proactivity in helping the labor incorporation in the XXII Tourism Night of Catalunya.

We were sustainable and in the International Year of Sustainable Tourism we accepted the Challenge # Tourism17 and we turned for a responsible tourism. We participated in the “Let ‘s Clean Up Europe” cleaning day in the Collserola Park and the Barcelona Princess Hotel turned off the lights of its impressive skyscraper during the hour of the planet.

We played 3 sports participating in the Barcelona Triathlon and 7 athletes of the Barcelona Pirncess Hotel formed the team #BarcelonaPrincessTeam to promote a healthy life. The Negresco Hotel, offered free Yoga classes on his terrace to connect body and mind. And both urban hotels in Barcelona, participated in the Inter Hotel Games 2017 and they did it for a good cause.

Music was present on the terraces of Barcelona during 2017 and was accompanied by sunsets and gastronomy. At the Hotel Barcelona Princess with DJ Vinyl, sessions at 85 meters high at the Terraces week and at the Hotel Negresco Princess with tribute to Prince and George Michael (live music) at the Terraces week and music inspired by the sun and the sea with Mediterranean Soundn by Moët Chandon during the summer. Festivals could not be missed at the Fòrum Parck and in front of the Barcelona Princess Hotel, such as the Primavera Soun and the Cruïlla Festival.

Chefs of Barcelona hotels had an active year. The Restaurant of the Hotel Negresco Princess changed its image to become Negresco Restaurant. Its Chef, Jon García, presented a weekly menu and his “tapa” Dome of lamb, foie and chocolate, was the winning “tapa” in the Tapas of the earth category of the Tapa Tour Hotel. The Barcelona Princess inaugurated the good weather of Barcelona with its traditional Cocktail lunch at The Gym Bar, this year with a proposal of healthy and sustainable lifestyle habits. “Tapa” Plankton Planet made by Joan  was the semifinalist of the challenge “Placton Marino del Hotel Tapa Tour”. And David and Pedro did live cooking in a showcooking at the Congress of the product and gastronomy of the Pyrenees and at the Montanejos Cheese Fair.

– We became a reference of culture. With # NegrescoÉsCultura, this hotel in the center of Barcelona, became the new reference space for culture in Barcelona in collaboration with the TR3SC club. In the Fòrum area of Barelona and in the Poblenou district, the Barcelona Princess Hotel was introduced in live art and made part of the Window Art Circuit of the Poblenou Open Nigth

Thanks to all the Princess Hotels & Resorts Hotels workmates in Barcelona for their involvement in the 360 Princess & You Sustainable Project. Thanks to the foundations, institutions and organizations and above all thanks to you for trusting in us.

During 2018 we want to do much more, we hope to count on you and we wish you good luck!
