Every Wednesday from 19.30 until 10.30, you can enjoy the lush, green Balinese-style surroundings that has made this rooftop terrace so popular. Entrance is free, although the cocktails will quite pricey as they are from the hotel itself.
This coming Wednesday, their special cocktail will be “La Chiquitina”, which consists of Vodka, Pineapple puree, Sugar, Lemon and Berry juice. The artist performing will be Rosalie Vila – one of the most interesting voices at the moment, her portrayal of Catalan flamenco has a very unique and interesting appeal.
MONTJUIC OPEN-AIR CINEMA
For the continuation of this popular festival, tonight you can enjoy the sci-fi hit “Source Code”, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by Duncan Jones (son of David Bowie!). The movie centers around a soldier that discovers that he is part of a mission to find the bomber of a train in Chicago, after he wakes up in the body if an unknown man. It has a rating of 7.5 out of 10 on IMDB, and tickets can be purchased in advance from the website. Before the screening, you can enjoy some live Cuban music by Venancio y los Jóvenes de Antaño. We recommend that you take something warm, since the air gets quite chilly at night on the Montjuic Castle!
