Barcelona’s Hotel Omm

Hotel Omm Barcelona has been around for a decade now but it has been jazzed up with the makeover of their restaurant and bar,  Roca Moo and Roca Bar, the result of a partnership between the OMM group and Cellar of Can Roca, whose famous Michelin starred restaurant is located just outside of Girona.  The buzz hits you the moment you enter the hotel..the bar, located behind scrims in the lobby, has become a trendy,  lively meeting place for hotel guests and locals alike.  Young and attractive, you are smack in the middle of town (the Paseo de Gracia location couldn’t get any better) and smack in the middle of innovative cooking and design.

Rooms are spacious and serene and teh roof terrace with pool, overlooking the Sagrada Familia, provides respite by day and transforms into a delightful  evening venue.  And when you really get in to the partying groove, OMM has a nightclub, OMMSESSION,  accessed through the lobby that rocks.
