If there is one thing that has certainly become clear during the course of the 2021, it is that we want to continue getting out and enjoying the finer things in life. We are ready to start exploring, discovering, tasting and living a new, open-air lifestyle that allows us to enjoy the most gorgeous cities in the world in peace and tranquility. We bring you these spaces to welcome in the summer, with the same luxury and comfort that you have come to expect from Derby Hotels Collection.
As the summer is gently ushered in, we start living our cities through a different lens. The colour that streams into the squares or plazas, streets and parks of our urban spaces changes the way we appreciate art and culture. These spaces are gradually starting to buzz with the sounds of the summer and you can live the experience at all of our exclusive, artistic locations that effortlessly disconnect you from urban stress while also making the most of the most magnificent views Madrid and Barcelona offer.
There is nothing more Mediterranean than enjoying a glass of wine, your favourite liqueur or delicious tapas from a beautiful open-air space while watching the sun set.
In the heart of Barcelona: the Eixample
Our Claris Terrace, at the ultra-luxurious 5-star Claris Hotel & Spa, looks out over Barcelona’s classic Eixample district in the heart of this art-inspired metropolis. Our executive corporate chef offers a range of classic and innovative tapas and a full a la carte menu while a renowned mixologist can offer you a range of exciting cocktails, including Mexican mescal delights as well as all the traditional classics. This terrace is open to the public and the perfect place to experience what really makes Barcelona tick; surrounded by the diverse culture that represents our art-filled hotel in an environment of total exclusivity. This summer, renowned magician Jordi Caps will make summer nights shine even more while live music by Yara Beilinson will amuse both locals and tourists.
Nearby, also in Eixample, the garden at our 4-star Balmes hotel, just steps from Diagonal Avenue, offers its hotel guests staying with us a poolside, outdoor environment to totally unwind while enjoying this spectacular Catalan city’s sunsets that bathe Gaudi´s architecture in the colours of the authentic Mediterranean summer. Total calm and the luxury you have come to expect is guaranteed.
Madrid is calling
In Madrid, terraceo during the summer is the lifeblood of the city. The Spanish capital has already started experiencing soaring temperatures and our terrace is the perfect place to cool down and discover new flavours. Our Urban Terrace Bar offers unique views across Madrid’s city centre, a few minutes from the Puerta del Sol. Here you will feel at the heart of this buzzing city that feels as though it was made for the summertime. Enjoy the best outdoor lifestyle combined with Spanish wine and exclusive Champagne in this hotel filled with gorgeous art from Papua New Guinea.
On a final note,
Our Clean and safe programme ensures that you can enjoy our spaces with full peace of mind and standards of safety and hygiene. Your safety and enjoyment are our number one priority. Come and experience all that our spectacular locations have to offer you this summer.
