Hotel Arts BarcelonaFeast Fit for the Stars
Whether it’s a super-secret Friends and Family restaurant opening or the front row at Chanel, there's nothing like a star-filled room. Throw some tapas and good intentions into the mix? You have yourself a party. To celebrate its 20th birthday on June 12th, the Hotel Arts Barcelona has rounded up the hottest Michelin-stared chefs in Spain to serve a veritable tapas feast to its privileged party guests. Forget the chorizo and albondigas your best friend prepared after her extended honeymoon in Andalusia. These are molecular kings, culinary prodigies and avant-garde visionaries whose gastronomic talents are revered around the world. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with Albert Adrià, Joan Roca, Andoni Aduriz, Marc Gascons and the Hotel Arts’ own superstar chef Paco Pérez while they whip up their favorite tapas dish.
For some serious foodie time with the chefs, just drop €20,000 for the hotel’s best digs and get a behind-the-scenes tête-à-tête with the masters. Hey, the theme of the week is a splurge and we are here to deliver. For that price, you’ll also get preferred reservations and VIP access for a year to Paco Pérez and Albert Adrià’s acclaimed restaurants, which are transforming Barcelona’s culinary scene. (And if you think about it, that’s saving your assistant many phone calls to the reservations receptionist. Time is money.) The best part? Hotel Arts Barcelona will be donating all party proceeds to UNICEF. So, in addition to spending a long weekend in one of the world’s best cities sampling its finest cuisine, you save the children while doing it. Who’s the star, now?
