It’s a bit of a trek but, at sunset, there’s no better spot to swirl a martini. The Ignite Group, known for their London bars, nightclubs and restaurants that include Eclipse, Boujis, Cocoon and Bumpkin, has succesfully brought their chi-chi take on nightlife to the W Barcelona. Occupying the top deck of the 26-floor hotel with unmatched views of Barcelona, the setting is lush - created by the now separated local interior design maven duo, Tarruella & López - and the bartenders are competent, with reinforcements from the group’s London establishments, meaning that the watermelon martini is just right. The crowd so far is a mix of hotel guests, surgically enhanced uptown blondes and the men who support them, as well as other curious locals, but regular DJ nights are in the works, including a proper gay night. The door can be a bit hectic on weekends, so call ahead to make arrangements.
