Highs & Lows

  • Where should I start.. The gym is stunning and has fun classes - yoga and spinning, the lush cinema, the two pools, the relaxed work atmosphere during the day, a huge sweets selection, the beautiful views from the roof, great service, the spa, Cecconis, gigs and activities, the food, the cocktails…

  • The rooms are so beautifully designed. And there is an incredible amount of surprises and treats around the room. Hot water bottle, complimentary cookies, a bartender mixing you a cocktail (!!), Marshall speaker, miniature Cowshed everything, complimentary laundry service and etc etc etc.

  • The worst thing is that it’s hard to leave.

If you are going to shop, shop local. Barcelona is booming with new generation of cool handmade brands and Iriarte Iriarte is one of the ones leading the way. What a stunning studio too.

My favourite spot for food. It’s unpretentious, run by a passionate team, gastro Spanish food.

If you do make it out of Soho House and need a solid flat white, this is the spot. Tucked away with super cool interior by Owl Furniture (@owl_______) and bang on menu, it’s not to be missed.
