Four Corners Hoxton Barcelona

The Hoxton Poblenou brings Detroit-style pizza and rooftop tacos to Barcelona

The Hoxton is getting ready to open its doors in Barcelona’s El Poblenou neighbourhood on April 25, and it’s bringing a new culinary concept to the Spanish metropolis. The 240-key hotel will feature a ground floor pizza restaurant, sun terrace, slice shop and bodega called Four Corners.

The restaurant, which specialises in deep-dish Detroit-style pizza served in square pies or slices, is overseen by New York based pizzaiolo Anthony Falco. The pizza expert recently spent time in London perfecting the concept, during a wildly successful four-month pop up at The Hoxton Holborn’s basement wine bar Rondo La Cave.

The menu features freshly-baked thick and chunky bases topped with delicacies such as  Mortadella and pistachio pesto, Soppressata with spicy honey, and classic red top. Alongside pizza, the menu will include small plates using fresh and local produce, salads, classic cocktails and natural wines. Four Corners Poblenou will be open all-day for eat-in and takeout, while hotel guests can also order slices as part of the Hoxton’s room service offering.

Meanwhile, a rooftop bar and taqueria  called Tope will serve up views of the Sagrada Familia and a rotating menu of tacos on house-made tortillas. On sunny days, guests will be able to enjoy frozen margaritas pulled from the poolside slushie machine, or order wines on tap from local Spanish vineyards, and beers from small local breweries. The venue – a sister to Tope Portland, which opened at The Hoxton Portland in 2018 – Tope Poblenou will offer classic tacos featuring slow-cooked meats, charred vegetables and flavourful sauces.

The launch marks the 11th opening for The Hoxton, which also has new properties in Brussels and Berlin in the pipeline.
