Designed by world-renowned architect Ricardo Bofill and located on the beachfront along the famous Barceloneta boardwalk, W Barcelona sets the scene for a spectacular stay in its 473 fabulous guest rooms & suites.

Among its enjoyable facilities, the hotel offers now a new vibrant and suggestive space where to meet with friends and have a drink (or two): the W Lounge. Main objective of the United Design Partnership studio, which designed the space, was to create a sensory experience that reflected the wow factor of the W Hotels brand. Colours and materials chosen have therefore to convey the unique nautical, vibrant, playful and social personality of the W Barcelona.

Inspiration comes from the theme “sky and sea by day and night”, as they say at United Design Partnership. The W lounge benefits from an iconic view of these two elements, coming together on the edge of one of the most vibrant cities of the world.
