Best nights Tues, Weds (late) and Sundays (afternoon pool party) in summer

They’re busy, the good folks at Axel Hotel. There’s always something going on, be it pink parties, drag queen nights, pool parties or premieres, but it’s during the summer that Axel rules.

On most weekday nights a handsome (if not pretty) crowd sip cosmos and cocktails in the best of Miami style at the Sky Bar on the roof, and its Sunday afternoon pool party at the same venue also gathers a loyal following. It's also a pleasant place to start the night on weekends before the town's other bars get going.

The emblematic rooftop bar has been expanded, blessed with a much larger pool and Jacuzzi, and moved one floor up so that guests can now take in the full Barcelona skyline while sipping a well-shaken cocktail and sussing out the talent present.
