Design Hotels™ introduces five hotels drawing in the great and good of the international party set:
1. Sense Hotel Sofia, Bulgaria
Considered the drinking spot for locals and guests alike, Sense Hotel Sofia’s Rooftop Bar is undoubtedly the crowning glory of the 71-room hotel. Located in the historic heart of the capital, the glass-enclosed bar provides the perfect perch from which to admire the imposing St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral and neighboring National Assembly – Champagne in hand, naturally. Rooftop Gastro Bar Live is responsible for a menu of light, healthy dishes to complement the classic cocktail list.
2. Bohemia Suites & Spa, Playa del Ingles, Gran Canaria
Hidden away from tourist areas, the 67-room Bohemia Suites & Spa has established itself as a meeting place for creatives, bohemians and hedonists. The private, ocean-front hotel knows the importance of making an entrance, and guests are transported to the spectacular rooftop Atelier cocktail bar via a panoramic glass lift. Creative and inclusive, guests are encouraged to engage with the cocktail craftsmen and discover new flavors and textures that go far beyond the conventional bar experience. Fresh, local produce crafted with Asian and French influences complete the sensual picture at the 360° Restaurant.
3. Roomers, Frankfurt, Germany
With its exclusive lifestyle events, seasonal highlights and fine cuisine, Roomers Bar attracts not only the “who’s who” of Frankfurt society but also international film stars and socialites. Cozy booths, dim lighting and an award-winning cocktail and cigar menu set the scene for anything from intimate tête-à-têtes to sparkling soirees at the 116-room Roomers. For those looking to paint the town red, the thriving metropole of Frankfurt is more than happy to oblige – Roomers-sister properties Bristol Bar and Gekkos are well-established haunts, while parties at the Kane & Abel club are legendary.
4. Aguas de Ibiza Lifestyle & Spa, Santa Eulalia Del Rio, Ibiza
Located on the rooftop of the 112-room Aguas de Ibiza Lifestyle & Spa Hotel, Vi Cool by Sergi Arola has been designed to reflect the more sophisticated and laid-back party vibe of the Balearic island. Alongside a spectacular white pool created to mimic the look and flow of the sea shore, Vi Cool boasts a lounge and more formal restaurant area, separated by a large bar. As to be expected of a restaurant and bar overseen by two-Micheln star chef Sergi Arola, the food is second to none – providing the perfect start to an evening spent dancing the night away.
5. Puro Oasis Urbano, Palma de Mallorca, Mallorca
A 51-room former palace in a quaint, historic barrio of Palma de Mallorca, Puro Oasis Urbano is a relaxed retreat for the eternally hip. At the social heart of the hotel lies OPIO Bar, which is a lesson in contemporary decadence with its unique blend of music and modern art. The bar’s stylish patio plays host to live DJ sets on weekend evenings and the entire space can be hired for private parties and events for up to 300 guests. Guests seeking a more chilled-out vibe can head up to the roof top terrace for urban relaxation at its best. www.designhotels.com/puro-
