Standing 44 stories high, the Hotel Arts Barcelona is easily spotted towering above the Mediterranean Sea and the rest of the city. The unique architecture, with a blue glass and exposed steel facade, overlooks Frank Gehry’s shimmering bronze fish sculpture Peix. The interiors are just as contemporary; the suites’ subtle neutral palettes allow the incredible views to take center stage. Celebrating Barcelona’s culinary delights, the hotel has five restaurants, including the two-Michelin-starred Enoteca. On Sundays, Arola restaurant pays tribute to the local vermouth tradition (as locals say, “fer el vermut” — do the vermouth), offering a special tapas menu by chef Sergi Arola paired with vermouth-based cocktails.
