Derby Hotels Collection reinforces its positioning through gastronomy, luxury and culture as a hallmark of its brand

- In recent months, "CEBO" has opened under the direction of Javier Sanz and Juan Sahuquillo -one Michelin star-; and they have brought to Madrid Glass by Sips the concept of Drinkery House by Simone Caporale and Marc Álvarez -recognised as the third cocktail bar in the world-

In addition, in the upcoming weeks Hotel Claris will be opening Os-Kuro, a new Japanese restaurant that will fuse traditional Japanese cuisine with the best produce from our coasts.

The chain led by Joaquim Clos will add a new project in Barcelona to its 22 hotels and luxury apartments.


Madrid, 18/01/2023.- Derby Hotels Collection presents the group's new projects at FITUR, in a year in which the chain once again reinforces its gastronomic proposal and its art collections as hallmarks, with the aim of offering the best service and a differential and exclusive proposal for the client.

Within the framework of FITUR, Jordi Clos, President of DHC, and Joaquim Clos, General Manager, explained the objectives for the 2023 financial year, in which growth of 4% is expected after closing 2022 with a turnover of 74 million euros.


Derby Hotels Collection commits to gastronomy and new values

With the aim of positioning the establishments not only as hotel references, but also in the highest gastronomic expression, Joaquim Clos leads the Group's commitment.

In this sense, Derby Hotels Collection is committed to innovation in the field of restoration. At the Hotel Urban 5*GL, the CEBO restaurant -led by Javier Sanz and Juan Sahuquillo -recognized with a Michelin star-, reopened during 2022.

The new concept is inspired by a cuisine free of artifice and expressed with the best products of the moment. "A deep and nuanced cuisine, which delves into the flavors, claiming simplicity and the elemental", says Juan Sahuquillo.

Also, the Urban inaugurated a new project in Glass returning to its origin, to be a reference cocktail bar in the capital. To do this, a few months ago Simone Caporale and Marc Alvarez, owners of Bar Sips -third position in The World's 50 Best Bars-, landed for the first time in Madrid with Glass By Sips. An innovative concept of Drinkery House, where the main characters are the cocktails that express a language, transmit a sensation and create experiences.

With Glass, the Urban offers a complete user experience: a Cocktail Bar; CEBO and La Terraza, on the top floor, considered one of the rooftop references of the capital's circuit.

In Barcelona, Derby Hotels Collection will soon present Os-Kuro, the new gastronomic project of the chain. Located in the Hotel Claris, a new Japanese cuisine restaurant that fuses the elaborations of Japanese cuisine with the best local product of our coast. A versatile restaurant concept, to enjoy at different times as an aperitif or at lunch and dinner, accompanied with a wide range of Sakes and the best wines.

"Changes are opportunities and evolutions, these three openings are for us a great opportunity for growth and transformation to position ourselves as the gastronomic hotel group of reference" said Joaquim Clos, CEO of DHC.
