The Hotel Silken Diagonal is an upmarket hotel on the Avinguda Diagonal that from time to time hosts select house music parties on its roof, especially during Sonar Festival.

The rooftop is a magnificent party venue with views across the old city centre. The wood-panelled space also features a small pool to cool down in. Mobilee, Resident Advisor and local promoter Monkey Bar have all put on daytime soirees there, usually running from 2:00 PM until 9:00 PM.

One such event is the Mobilee Records annual poolside party, with some of the hottest international DJs and a top-of-the-range sound system in a glorious setting.

Due to the small capacity of the space, most events are invite-only but this year they’re extending the invitation to everyone ,with a series of parties throughout the summer at this intimate 200-capacity venue. Artists such as French electronic artist Lee Van Dowski and German house DJ Anja Schneider are all set to play by the pool on the rooftop terrace in the series, every Sunday, from the 10th of July to the 11th of September.
