At Yurbban Hotels we propose to our clients that they have an authentic native experience under the claim “Live as a native”. We encourage you to experience your stay in the city in the most authentic way, getting involved in the daily life of the people of Barcelona and getting to know our places, customs and references.
In line with this, we support and bet on local talent giving visibility to local artists. This can be seen, for example, in the decoration of the hotels, full of references such as sculptures or works by different authors. And, furthermore, we have ventured into the Yurbban Humans project, in which we present, through different videos, some of the people who have formed part of the project.
This 2019, together with our restaurant Plat Únic, we have embarked on a new project: Únic@s (Unique). Betting once more on local talent, we propose a series of talks open to everyone with unique people of reference from Barcelona.
On a random Thursday of each month, locals and hotel guests are invited to chat and learn about our speaker´s story in an informal format. Admission is free but subject to availability, from 18:45h to 20h.
The proposals vary in order to offer distinct themes. The speakers are renowned entrepreneurs, designers, athletes, artists … So far we have received Javier Llaudet, co-founder of the fashion brand Arrels Barcelona and the project “Yes Okay”. Raquel Sogorb, an interior designer specializing in hotel and restaurant projects and Jordi Barri, CEO of Teresa Carles Healthy Food, restaurant group creator of the concept and avant-garde restaurants Flax & Kale, Barcelona’s trendy flexitarian restaurants, and vegetarian restaurant Teresa Carles.
The next guest will be José María García González, designer of the fashion brand Ze García, a Barcelona firm that offers designs displaying extreme quality and care down to the tiniest detail.
To finish Thursdays the best way possible, you can book a table in Plat Únic to try a unique and daring cuisine, a single dish that changes seasonally with table wine at a single price. And, after dinner, head up to our rooftop with 360 ° views to enjoy a drink while you take in the city.
