In Barcelona a Quest for Cool is Solved

What’s the next best thing to having a well-connected friend in Barcelona? For guests staying at the Hotel Arts Barcelona, the answer is a “coolhunter.” Sort of a personal luxury concierge, a “coolhunter” sets up one-of-a-kind experiences that can easily transform a trip from a vacation to a fantasy. Imagine taking a lap or two with a Formula One race driver, perfecting your paella-making skills under the guidance of a Michelin-star chef, or hobnobbing with A-listers at a private party. A “coolhunter” can do all of these, and more. In addition to being savvy about everything cool in Barcelona, “coolhunters” are also adept at getting their clients through all those long lines at museums and art galleries. Cost is €400 for half a day; €600 for a full day. The service is reserved through the Concierge desk prior to guest arrivals.
