We all need a little pick-me-up to combat the Wednesday blues. Those lucky enough to dwell in sunny Barcelona can head to the elegant Mandarin Oriental on the fabulous Passeig de Gràcia, where an injection of luxury will come in the form of some inimitable rhythms and the best gin and tonic around.
If you’re wondering where Barcelona’s glitterati go for a cocktail, it’s the Banker’s Bar in this 5-star enclave of cosmopolitan style – a refined spot just steps from the high-end boutiques of the city’s most glamorous road. Amongst stunning surroundings, the It crowd of this eclectic metropolis gather to sip innovative signature cocktails, classic martinis and good old-fashioned G&Ts.
During last November’s International Jazz Festival, the Banker Bar’s Gin&Jazz sessions were born. Now a staple fixture of the city’s nightlife, every Wednesday from 10pm to 12am the Mandarin Oriental opens its doors to jazz lovers and gin aficionados alike. With unique live performances and a different gin and tonic everytime, the one-of-a-kind chic of the Banker’s Bar gets a midweek kiss of soul.
