We have once again started the summer season in style with our traditional party at the La Terraza del Claris. This year’s event was even more special than ever, however, as in addition to heralding the arrival of summer, we were also celebrating the hotel’s 25th anniversary, the opening of which coincided with the 1992 Olympics.

An exclusive celebration
The party at La Terraza del Claris, a pioneer with regard to opening to the public, welcomed around 600 guests representing the social, political and business fabric of Barcelona.
Figures such as Barcelona City Council business and tourism councillor, Agustí Colom; Barcelona City Council second deputy mayor, Jaume Collboni; Artur Mas and his wife Helena Rakosnik; Ciutadans municipal group councillor, Carina Mejías; former mayor, Xavier Trias; Government of Catalonia Director-General for Tourism, Octavi Bono; and city councillor for the Eixample district, Montserrat Ballarín attended the exclusive party.
Nobody wanted to miss the opening party of the season or the 25th anniversary celebrations. Guests were able to pose for pictures alongside the special cake, topped with a number 25, that formed the centrepiece of the terrace decorations.

Outstanding decor and ambience
Party-goers were treated to an exceptional setting with decor inspired by the terrace plants and its vertical garden featuring touches of gold, black and white. Large transparent vases, filled with greenery and floral colours, adorned the buffet tables.
Live music added to the party atmosphere and guests were able to sample the latest gastronomic experience developed for the La Terraza del Claris restaurant by chef Aurelio Morales. A selection of refreshing detox juices, followed by prawns in tiger’s milk, gorgonzola cones, red tuna tataki with hijiki and soy mayonnaise, gin and tonic lollipops, pesto clouds and Baileys-ratafia cocktails were just some of the dishes served at the party. The menu also included exquisite dim sum created by the Mr. Kao restaurant, which opened at the Hotel Claris in 2015.
Guests were also able to sample, among other things, a selection of gin and tonics and Perrier-Jouët champagne.
