City Restaurant

Our hotel’s City Restaurant is all about an honest and straight forward approach to food, without over thinking: traditional Mediterranean bistro-style cooking brought up-to-date with cosmopolitan touches and a contemporary flourish. Its founding principle is the selection of prime quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients, prepared using cooking techniques that allow the innate flavours to be appreciated replete with subtle refinements.

A varied selection of local wines and tempting desserts complete the gastronomic offering.

The restaurant is designed to provide a moment of respite within the beating heart of the city thanks to its location right at its epicentre with a warm, elegant and timeless interior design flooded with natural daylight. Qualities that make City Restaurant the ideal place to organise private events with the added option of a Dj and a wide ranging choice of group menus.

City Bar

At City Bar & Restaurant, we believe in giving our guests a complete culinary experience. A culinary journey that focuses not only on the meal but also a careful selection of things to go with the dishes, such as appetisers, snacks and traditional desserts with a twist and a meticulously curated wine list full of local options.

And for a cocktail after your meal, our City Bar features a wide range of options, from non-alcoholic drinks and classics (mojitos, daiquiris, caipirinhas, cosmopolitans, pisco sours, Aperol Spritzz, etc.) to the most innovative combinations from star mixologist Manel Vehí, world champion in the Mediterranean Inspirations by Gin Mare cocktail contest.

Manel’s inventiveness can be seen in the drinks menu packed with creative cocktails: with a touch of spice (El Chapo), floral essences (Good Vibes), exotic ingredients (Flor de Hibiscus), mixed spices, and more. You’re sure to find your new favourite drink.

Plus, our central location, between the Gothic Quarter and the Born, and elegant interior design make City Bar the perfect place for any sort of private event, party or meeting with up to 150 guests and a fully customised experience.


Anyone taking the lift from the Grand Hotel Central lobby and emerging into the SkyBar will be immediately struck by one of the most extraordinary outdoor spaces and views over the city that Barcelona has to offer. A rooftop bar and restaurant that is suspended within the city skyline with an infinity pool to one side and a terrace lounge area with cocktail bar on the other featuring comfortable seating and sun canopies. With views into the neighbourhood life of El Born and beyond to the Mediterranean this unique vantage is the ideal spot to appreciate the sunset when the sky becomes inflamed by the reds, oranges and blues that characterise the horizon at dusk, matched by the changing colours of the infinity pool as day slips into evening. The waiter service and cocktail bar together with its city centre location make SkyBar a singularly unique choice for a get together with colleagues, romantic meal or somewhere to surprise friends.
