The spaces

The house

Design-lovers, this one’s for you. With soaring arches, a curved bar, and peach plastered walls, The Hoxton, Poblenou pays homage to the vibrant style of the late, great architect Ricardo Bofill, who was a native of this culture-rich neighbourhood.

The school

A curated workspace and event space for an influential and creative collective, a nexus in which to develop connections and collaborations, and to realize ambitions. Designed and founded by Skye Maunsell and Jordi Veciana.

The masía

A historical retreat on an organic vineyard in the Penedès Wine Region. The house has belonged to the same family since the XVII century. They are food and wine lovers and will share a decadent and healthy meal with us.


The workshops

The flowers

Founded by Carolina Spencer in 2014,
Matagalán collective believes in creative, playful and collaborative work, where art and design are always present, focusing on floral and sculptural elements to create dimension and space.
Their passion lies in everything related to the world of plants and flowers.

The words

Words are the raw material Leticia Sala works with. After a couple of poetry collections, she makes the leap to prose with her first short-story book, ‘Los cisnes de Macy’s’, focused on the role technology plays in our lives, friendship and motherhood. She is also a screenwriter and lyricist. She finds ideas in flowers, airplanes, and supermarkets.

The wine

Suc Suc is the brainchild of sommeliers and communicators Ida Mogren and Benji Sher. Their natural wine courses are dynamic, unpretentious, and adapted to the learning needs of the professional and amateur students. 
An education hub and consulting agency for natural wine.


The dining

The comfy

A gastronomic project by Tiberi Club; a vibrant hub aiming to reinvent food-related rituals and foster social connections. They create an experience, mixing natural wines with art, music and workshops. Yum-yum, glug-glug, blah-blah.

The bodega

The very new bodega bar by chef Frank Boxer, founder of Londoner Franks Cafe in partnership with The Natural Wine Company This charming spot is quickly becoming a beloved and popular favorite in the city.

The artsy

A community creative space where we will curate the farewell event surrounded by art, music and food. The perfect backdrop for an unforgettable evening, creating a community that drives memories and bonds people.


The art

The iconic

Since 1972, this furniture design company, comprising architects, publishers, and designers along with one of the founders, Oscar Tusquets, has been fostering progress and generating awareness about the potential of design.

The innovative

The first gallery to be devoted exclusively to 21st century collectible design that is linked to Barcelona. Born in 2011 under the management of Xavier Franquesa, a designer connected to the world of architecture and interior.

The eclectic

A vibrant ecosystem of contemporary art since 1990. Their open-door policy invites visitors to not only explore exhibitions but also step into artists’ studios, fostering direct connections and a deeper understanding of their work.

A letter from the founder

Hi, I’m Lydia. Founder and creator of Sobremesa.Institute and our new highly curated cultural experience, Sobremesa.Immersions. Since I was a kid, I’ve had an unlimited curiosity for new and different things happening in the world and have always had the urge to get involved. For me, the real risk is not changing. I created Sobremesa.Immersions out of the need to offer a new kind of language-learning experience I couldn’t find anywhere else.

After years of teaching Spanish and leading language schools, I set out to develop a method that would transmit my values and beliefs, and Sobremesa.Institute is the place where all the things I care for come together. Sobremesa.Immersions is an extension of that method, one where language, creativity, beauty, and inspiration intertwine to create an elevated learning experience.

I deeply believe that beauty, in all its forms, is essential to our existence, and I passionately weave it into every aspect of my life. It manifests in the harmony I create in my environment, the thriving community I build, and the effective communication I facilitate between people. This is why I have hand-picked a selection of the most beautiful and inspiring spaces, individuals, and collectives to make the Sobremesa.Immersions experience one that we will never forget.

I love creating those special moments where people and creativity collide and spark something new and beautiful, where we come together and discover unique places and experiences. Being a ‘cultural curator’ means I get to create spaces to connect with like-minded creatives, put a spotlight on the latest and most inspiring individuals and projects coming out of Barcelona, and generate innovative experiences through the lens of language learning and culture.

I created Sobremesa.Immersions for me, and for you. A place where my dreams, values, interests, and expertise converge to provide a transformative experience for the people who would share a sobremesa with me. Now it’s time for us to create something beautiful.

With love,
Lydia
