I will focus our venue finding search on the impressive yet understated Barcelona. On my short stay in the Catalan capital of Barcelona I sampled some of the top event venues and dining experiences that the city had to offer. Barcelona makes a great destination for large dinners and conferences with many impressive venues. With much of the architecture inspired or created by renowned architects such as Gaudí, the buildings are elegant, impressive and unique. There is also a prominent fine dining scene in Barcelona, with many Michelin star restaurants and smaller quirky dining spaces for your social evening or meeting. Having visited over 15 Barcelona venues in a single day, I will elaborate on just 4 of my favourites.
1. Hospital De Sant Pau
This venue offers grand architecture with the wow factor and an interesting history. The building was re-designed for use as a hospital in 1902 by Lluís Domènech i Montaner and now belongs to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. It only seized hospital use in 2009 and is now available for stunning events.
Capacity: Larger rooms for 230 banqueting style. Smaller rooms for 20-70 banqueting style. A large garden for up to 1000 standing.
Good for: Gala Dinners and conferences.
Location: In west Gracia.
2. Casa Vicens
Casa Vicens is Antoni Gaudí’s first work of art and was family owned until 2005 when it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The building opened to the public in November 2017 making me one of the very first people to visit and observe its beauty. The lower floors are very ornate and provide insight into Gaudi´s early techniques, the top floor is a plain space offering a blank canvas. Restrictions and costs on closing the museum make this a tricky event space but it´s a must for tours in 2018.
Capacity: Offering a space for 24 seated on the lower and first floor. An atic space for up to 70 seated.
Good for: Smaller, more intimate meetings with a difference.
Location: On the lower border of Horta / Guinardo, directly north from La Sagrada Famili.
I fell in love with the atmosphere of this venue with its rustic stone walls, metal structures, brewing aromas and glass pyramids. The Moritz Brewery is still operational and has unique underground spaces for large dinners and parties. Moritz is a respected brand in Barcelona have transformed the building into a modern, original space.
Capacity: 180 dinner style.
Good for: Corporate Social Events.
Location: On Ronda Sant Antonio, in central Barcelona.
Enigma is in the Barri Adrià area of the city and is home to a collection of fine dining restaurants formed by the Adrià brothers. Enigma is the newest of the bunch and is a dining experience with a difference. This modern and stylish restaurant provides you with a 3.25 hour long experience of exquisite food and drink. The restaurant is all about dining experience as the room directs you on a path lined with panes of ice.
Capacity: Up to 30 split into smaller groups which rotate around stations.
Good for: Fine dining and smaller group social evenings.
Location: This new restaurant, opened in January and is in the strip now known locally as the Barri-Adría.
