Coming off of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebrations, the Barcelona EDITION continues its festivities into the new year.


This New Year’s Eve in Barcelona, enjoy dinner at Bar Veraz with live jazz music by the Padrós, Colomer & Segurado Trio. Bar Veraz offers guest a selection of dishes ranging from Mediterranean tuna carpaccio to dry-aged tenderloin. After dinner, head to the recently reopened Punch Room to attend the New Year’s Eve party in true Roaring ‘20s fashion. Starting at 8 p.m., the party will provide guests with a variety of festive punches accompanied by music by DJ Johann Wald.


On Jan. 1, choose how you want to recover from a long night of celebrations at either the Bottomless Cava Hangover Lunch at Bar Veraz or the Recovery Brunch at The Roof. At Bar Veraz, guests can enjoy bottomless cava with a choice of seasonal flavors. For lunch, guests can choose from an array of dishes, such as shaksuka, spinach cannellonia, Iberian ham and a dark chocolate soufflé.


For brunch with a view, visit The Roof for a recovery meal. The Roof offers guests a variety of drinks, like Bloody Marys and cold-press juices, as well as Asian-inspired brunch dishes. Try the red tuna lettuce ssam, Thai noodle salad and Korean rice with kimchi.
