A Friendship Hotel

29. März 2019

Casa Bonay is the fruition of an idea carried out by a diverse team of collaborators. The one thing they had in common was that they admired each other

Among these creators you can find lighting, furniture, interior, fabric, and graphic designers, homemade soap producers, local weavers, international chefs, book editors, and coffee and wine experts. Let them explain Casa Bonay:

„Casa Bonay is a hotel set up in a neoclassical building from 1869 in the center of Barcelona. We have restored everything from the floors to the ceilings so you can experience Barcelona as we have. We renovated this beautiful house from 1869 preserving all of the antique, hydraulic-tile floors, ceilings, and sliding doors, added our favorite lighting by Barcelona- based designers Santa & Cole, packed our minibars with our favorite whims, and designed our very own furniture together with local furniture designer AOO to make it into our dream hotel. We are located in the center of Barcelona in the perfectly peaceful Eixample Dret neighborhood, one of the most iconic areas of our city. We are a tiny walk and an even shorter bike ride from the beach, the Gothic and El Born city quarters. We are huge food lovers, and that is why we have the best natural wine selection you will find, our favorite tapas, the best fresh local product, cold-pressed juices, and delicious coffee. Our Chefs – The Bar Brutal Crew. First established in 2013, Bar Brutal became a place of reference for natural wine in lovers in Barcelona. Its ex- tensive wine menu and carefully curated dishes attract crowds from youngsters, local neighbors and wine pro- ducers from all around, resulting in a unique, dynamic atmosphere. Bringing along their high quality products and experienced cooking that have always made them the best at what they do. Our Barista – Marcos Bartolomé. Marcos from Satan’s Coffee Corner is the meticulous type, and this is all very apparent in how he makes his coffee. Praised as one of the most renowned baristas in town, his original spot in the Gothic quarter of the city, opened in June 2014, has a cult following of coffee fanatics. The Restaurant King Kong Lady is our little adventurous sister inspired by flavours from all around the world. The menu runs on local products enhanced with flavours from every continent like: Palamós prawns sprinkled with Madrás curry, soft shell crab with homemade havanero mayo paired with a most extravagant, all natural wine menu. Our Libertine lounge, an all-day, every day tapas restau- rant/cocktail, is everything we wanted but couldn’t find in our city. A place where you can come and work in silence, grab a fast and delicious cup of coffee, sit for hours over tea, read a book, organize meetings, go on dates, enjoy all your favorite comfort food at any time of the day, dance to our favorite DJs, listen to live music, and binge if you have the munchies until 1:30AM… Plus, Satan’s Coffee Corner serves an evil breakfast here every morning. The beach/jungle shack rooftop restaurant  Chiringuito offers sum-mer barbecue and tapas all year round, a natural wine selection, and your favorite cocktails.“
