Best places to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve

Cozy and exclusive plans for you to enjoy these dates to the fullest

Within a week of the most important meals and dinners of the year, some families have already planned their Christmas menu. If you are not kitchen lovers and want your holidays to be different, we propose the best plans to enjoy Christmas in Barcelona.

It’s Cotton House Hotel first year and they want to celebrate it in style. Their house is fully decorated with ornaments and a tree that contains 8000 cotton springs which pay tribute to the name of the hotel. Everything is also ready for hotel guests and Catalan families who have chosen this place as the best setting to celebrate their holidays. During these days there are special menus for groups and business dinners and have prepared a brunch for the 25th and 26th. The hotel chef will also prepare show cooking and a Candy Bar for the youngest kids. Santa and the Three Kings are also expected during these days.

Another recognized chef and worthy of a Michelin star is Marc Gascons. In his restaurant Informal in The Serras hotel, he has designed his proposal for these dates. We highlight the Christmas and Boxing Day menu, with the essential ingredients of a Catalan Christmas dinner. You will find escudella and carn d’olla or cannelloni, turrón and cava, or catalan champagne. If you are looking for tradition in a modern and unique space this is your best option.

After many days of endless meals, we reach the longest night of the year, New Year’s Eve. The official year-end party in Barcelona is held in Montjuic. From 23: 00h, you will enjoy a free show of performing arts and the fountains as main players of the night. At 0:00 the 12 strokes are accompanied in Spain by 12 lucky grapes and then a fireworks display that performs during several minutes. Each year, hundreds of Catalans and tourists meet on Avenida Maria Cristina to welcome the New Year.

Every year, different performances join the lights of the Montjuic fountain during New Year’s Eve

After midnight and the toast, the party starts so why not take the most out of it? One of the most vertiginous proposals of the city is celebrated in the Eclipse Club in Hotel W. Until 6 o’clock in the morning you can dance with the best music and atmosphere in a scenario with spectacular views of Barcelona. Take a glass of champagne or one of their cocktails and celebrate wait awaits you from 2016.

Until 6 AM, we assure you’ll have a great party with the best music in the Eclipse Club of the W Hotel

For those who didn’t extend New Year’s Eve until too late, the Palau de la Música Grand New Year’s Concert of Johan Strauss has been held for more than 26 years in the major concert halls in Europe and has become a traditional appointment for many. Inspired in the musical event that takes place every year in Vienna, Palau offers a selection of the best waltzes, polkas and marches by Strauss with choreographies performed by the dance company.
