Menú San Valentín en Negresco Restaurant

How? Our chef, Jon García, has prepared a menu to delight even the most demanding palates. A gastronomic menu where each step is important, as in love. And where does love start? 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.

And what follows an intense glance? A first date full of symbolism and dreams, a corn cream with timbale of fresh cheese and hazelnuts in two textures. Will everything be fine or will it be the end? We are sure that the best ending is the main course: passion. And the best way to represent the pleasure of these delicious grilled scallops is with semi-sweet celeri puree and emulsions of guava, squid ink and passion fruit.

Color and tradition at the Carnival of Barcelona

If we say Carnival, you will probably think about the Carnival of Brazil, but in Barcelona we also have our peculiar and traditional Carnival.

It is called “Carnestoltes” and is celebrated as a party. This year it will be held from February 8 to 14.

Each city has its ride or “rúa” and Barcelona too. There is also the Carnival King´s ride, the “naranjada” and the big “sarao” that takes place on Sunday afternoon, and on Ash Wednesday the burial of the sardine takes place too.

So Carnival is perfect to come to Barcelona and enjoy the atmosphere of the city. Near the Hotel Barcelona Princess you can enjoy the Carnival in Poblenou, and the Negresco Princess Hotel is in the city center, so you will be able to experience in first person the Carnival of Barcelona.

There is another city very close to Barcelona where carnival is really famous and full of party: Sitges. A big party is organized, full of costumes, feathers, color, music and fun. They know how to have fun and that´s why this is the gay capital of Europe.

Love is in the air, San Valentin in Barcelona

Cupido is about to arrive to Barcelona to celebrate San Valentin´s day, the most romantic day of the year.

February the 14th  is a perfect day to express your feelings to your boyfriend or girlfriend. To do this is not so easy, so every year we wonder what to give as a present, what to do or where to go to have dinner.

Forget chocolates and give a big surprise to your partner with a hotel night in Barcelona. An special, romantic and different night.

Barcelona Princess Hotel is full of art and color

On November 24 was the #PoblenouOpenNight, a day of art and creativity in the neighborhood organized by the Poblenou Urban District Association, of which the Barcelona Princess Hotel is a member.

In addition to the open doors of several places, the offer was extended with the Markespaces Circuit and the Windows Art Circuit (WAC).

It was in the WAC proposal that the Barcelona Princess Hotel participated for the first time in an evening of art, cocktails and tapas.

The #wacpoblenou was a tour of different spaces for the creation of live art in unconventional settings.

In the case of Barcelona Princess, the windows of the hall of this hotel were the canvas where the muralist Héctor Soto, known as Ekosaurio, surprised us with his live creativity.

We take the opportunity to talk to him …

_Hector, where are you from?

I’m from Puerto Rico, I’ve been in Barcelona for a year and a half and I’m delighted to be settled here. Barcelona is a multicultural city full of art and design. I like to travel, I’ve done it for Europe and on a skateboard. I have also been to the Virgin Islands of the Caribbean.

_ Muralist since when?

I am Architect and I started in 2016 in grafity and to paint in large format. Now I am studying morphology of plants because I like to paint them.

_ During the #wacpoblenou we saw the windows of the Hotel decorated with olive trees. Why  plants?

Because plants inspire and touch you. They remind me my country that is tropical and full of vegetation. Since I was a child I have had contact with them, I remember them in my childhood with my grandmother.

I work with ornamental plants and for the WAC and the Barcelona Princess Hotel I wanted some kind of relationship with the city. In this case I chose the olives because they are part of Spain and can always be seen in any bar. In addition, they fit in very well with the sustainable philosophy 360 of the Barcelona Princess in green, ecological and proximity products.

__ You mention sustainability, how do you contribute to your day-to-day?

Being aware of the environment.

_ What do you like most about Art?

Freedom. There are no restrictions and it is being made over time.

_ What is your favorite place in the city of Barcelona?

The bunkers of Carmel is the best place in Barcelona to get lost and meditate. You can also enjoy this trip and afterwards admire the views of Barcelona.

_ And in the Princess Hotel in Barcelona?

The 23rd floor where the pool is located and from where you can enjoy the views of the Mediterranean Sea.

_ If you came just to visit the city, what do you think you couldn´t miss, see or do in Barcelona?

Visit the neighborhood of Poblenou and Gràcia. They are beautiful and picturesque neighborhoods of Barcelona. Poblenou, which is very close to the hotel, is a very creative neighborhood of Barcelona that reminds me the one in Williamasburg, a neighborhood in the Brooklyn New York district or the one in Wynwood, a historic neighborhood in the north of downtown Miami.

Thanks to @Ekosaurio for your time and for this talk and for the live demonstration during the Window Art Circuit of Poblenou. See you in the next edition!
