This luxury hotel right on Passeig de Gràcia plays host to its Banker'sBar every Wednesday, when it's decorated with old safes and the like, left over from the bank it used to be before it was the hotel it is now. There's also the Gin & Live cycle, where, apart from hearing some live music, you can also drink from their selection of G&Ts and other cocktails. Entrance is free; the drinks aren't.
The Mandarin Oriental boasts an exclusive spa with a 12-metre pool, an oriental steam room, a relaxation zone on the roof terrace with an open-air pool and a long menu of beauty treatments not suitable for all pockets. But if you are among the lucky ones who can afford to go, be sure to take full advantage of this idyllic paradise.
