Baúl Weekend Barcelona 2017

For a perfect holiday, BCN Apartment Rentals offers you the best luxury apartments in the heart of Barcelona, with the best design, location, security and comfort. 

The Palauet de Passeig de Gràcia will be the site of the third edition of the Baul Weekend on December 16 and 17, a luxury solidarity market whose proceeds go to the NGO Sonrisas de Bombay. Do you like fashion and want to make the world a better place? Then this event is for you!

One day, having a coffee, 5 friends from Barcelona, ​​devastated by the Mediterranean refugee crisis, asked themselves: how can we encourage people around us to show solidarity? Can we get that the way to donate money to an NGO is, in itself, an experience? This is how the idea of ​​Baúl Weekend was born: a luxury fashion bazaar on the outside, and a chain of solidarity and help from within. It's an event where you can buy some luxury at the price of Zara; but above all, an event with which you can raise a large amount of money in record time to send it entirely to people who need it. In Baúl Weekend 2016 they managed to raise more than € 62,000!

In this edition of Baúl Weekend you can find iconic and luxurious pieces such as a Birkin (Hermes) canvas and leather bag, a Chanel jacket or a Louis Vuitton motorcycle helmet, as well as several references of the style in social networks such as Gala González, Miranda Makaroff or Vanesa Lorenzo will create their donation capsule; items faithful to their personal style that can be bought during the market. There will also be all kinds of clothes and fashion accessories for men, women and children, from exclusive national and international luxury brands such as Chanel, Prada, Isabel Marant, Balenciaga, Chloé, YSL, Dolce Gabbana, Gucci, Lanvin , Hermès and Jimmy Choo, among many others, to more commercial brands such as Zadig & Voltaire, Sandro, The Kooples, Paul & Joe, Comptoir des Cotonniers or even Zara or H & M.

The film Dirty Dancing, which has broken records all over the world, manages to transport the nostalgia of the 80s to the stage with all the emotions caused by the actors Jennifer Gray and Patrick Swayze. After 2 full seasons in the West End of London and 2 successful tours around the UK, the classic story from Dirty Dancing is presented in Barcelona with fantastic and memorable songs like "Hungry Eyes", "Hey! Baby", " Do you love me?" and the classic one "(I've Had) The Time of My Life."

The stage of Dirty Dancing at the Tivoli Theater has 3 spinners to move the different sets of scenery that will transport us to the different places where the work is developed. You will be transported to the Kellerman's hotel where Baby is staying with her parents in an apparently boring vacation: the hall, the dining room, the staff rooms, the garden, the rooms of the guests and the basement where the staff practices the "dirty dancing" .
