Hotel Arts, a 5 star hotels that is very well known in the city, I have always walked by but I actually had never been on the inside, now I can say that I have. The location is amazing right in front of the sea and has splendid views on the top floor and terrace 360º of all Barcelona, check it out!

We went to Hotel Arts to try out Arola's night, a proposal of good tapas with magnificent views and live music. The hotel is pure luxury and detail, one thing that surprised me were the floral arrangements, they are changed once a week so every week the hotel looks completely different with kind of flowers and color.

We had the chance to try out the Arola's nights in Sergi's Arola restaurant in the hotel Arts. Sergi Arola is a disciple of Ferran Adrià and Pierre Gagnaire, his cuisine has the Mediterranean flavor and our tradition of sharing little dishes -tapas-. In summer nights, Arola's restaurant offers dinners in the terrace with live music.

The Arola's nights have already started at the end of June and they will continue every Thursday during July and August with live music with the funk and soul band Sinead & The Sinners. I loved that group, the singer was amazing it remind me of Adele and creates the perfect atmosphere to chat with your girlfriends as I did, or even have your romantic dinner with your love.

A perfect spot like this has to go with some buzz, so there we were trying out the Green Arola, a cocktail that is famous in the restaurant for combining basil, fresh lime juice and white rum along with some fructose to give it the sweety flavor. I was amazed with the taste of that cocktail so I can call myself a green Arola addict already.

Green+Arola+Coktails

We tried some tapas to go along with our Green Arola, fishy little dishes, delicious iberian ham croquettes and bravas of course. You know I am a huge fan of bravas, my expertise about them shown in the best bravas in Barcelona.The Arola's bravas have this all i oli flavour I love and a tiny touch of spicy, well presented in potato cubes and the sauce on the inside, so they have my approval!

Fishy+tapas

It is a good option for a special occasion, see the menu on the bottom of the page, expect to pay no less than 12 euros a dish, so be ready for the bill when it comes! We had an amazing night with my blogging girlfriends, Isabel, Esther, Patricia and Vero, so we shall see where we meet next time!!
