No matter where you go in Barcelona, you are bound to find delicious tapas. But nothing compares to the gourmet and fine dining tapas from Arola in the Hotel Arts Barcelona.
This highly sophisticated and refined beachside terrace in Barceloneta’s Ritz Carlton offers some of the most creative cocktails and innovative cuisine in the city. Lead by Chef Sergi Arola, the restaurant gives off a comforting and relaxing environment.
From the elegant yet subdued ambiance that compliments the ocean view with blue glass and open floor to ceiling windows to the 700 bottle wine collection that sits on display in the center of the space, Arola invites guests to soak in the Mediterranean flavor and enjoy a refreshing Spanish experience.
Surrounded by extensive gardens with their very own “urban orchard,” Arola uses fresh herbs directly from its landscaping. With a plush outdoor lounge overlooking the sea, it’s easy to lose a few hours basking in the sun while sipping on one of Diego Baud’s signature cocktails.
MiLLENNiAL was invited to taste the culinary genius of Arola complimented with the most aesthetically astounding cocktails we have ever seen.
