    Dancing: Salsa

    by Peret Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now in Barcelona have a big succes the salsa. Ten years ago was only (at least that i Know) one or two "salsotecas", but i don't know why, in the last times you can chose beetwen at least 10 locals when only you will hier salsa. It's truth that there's a lot of cubans, in Barcelona, cause Catalonia and Cuba are hystorically relate for several reasons. But the sytle that have a great school here, is the dance-line, like in Los Angeles.
    Well, me and my girl-friend like very much to dance salsa. If you wont to know the salsa of Barcelona, just say it us.
    En aquests moments, a Barcelona la salsa té força èxit. Fa uns anys només hi havien una o dos salsoteques, però ara hi han 10 llocs on gairebé només posen aquesta música. Catalunya ha tingut relació amb Cuba històricament. No obstant, l'estil que més escola té a Barcelona és el de Los Ángeles.
    A mi i a la meva dona ens agrada molt ballar salsa. Si voleu que us hi assessorem, només ens heu d'escriure.

    Discoteca Almo2bar: marcha spanish stile

    by venteeocho Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those in search of an enjoyable night out on the town, the problem might be choosing what would be most to your liking from among all that Barcelona has to offer. To start off, you could drop into one of the city's many champagne or cocktail bars. The night, however, might also begin at a good restaurant, choosing from among a wide and varied range that includes authentic food from around the world, in addition to the traditional Mediterranean cuisine of the city.


    For dancers, everywhere around the city are found discotheques, clubs and dance halls. For those who prefer to enjoy their music without having to move their bodies, the best thing to do is head off to one of the city's many live music clubs, offering almost daily shows in every style, from jazz and blues to African music, classical and flamenco. Visitors who feel the need to express their own musical talents can try out a karaoke club. Nor should we forget about other attractions of Barcelona by night: the theatre, the cinema.

    Dress Code: District: Gràcia
    Timetable 23:00 h a 05:00 h

    This is the popular nightclub, or at list it used to be, those places intent to change very quickly, however, this is located just by the popular beaches and big hotels and is the place to be in if you likes some dancing.

    Razzmatazz.: Big night club.

    by Dizzyhead Updated Oct 11, 2010

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    How did I end up here on my first trip to Barcelona... I was drunk and it was NOT a place for me. This is a very huge night club, and they play all kind of different music. But for my taste, it was TOO big and too LOUD. i prefer more bars, and I can enjoy night clubs, but this was too huge. I dont think you can get to know people here, everybody becomes like a stranger for you. But if you like to dance and try all kind of music, then it will be your dreamplace.

    Dress Code: here people dressed all kind of clothes, and think that Barcelona is a summer destination. They allowed people in summer clothes what I remember...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hi,
    I have a 3 month stay here in BCN, until end December, and last weekend I was in RAZZMATAZZ night club one of the famous ones in BCN; here my remarks (can be useful):
    ** Entrance is 15€ (with drink) and not 12€ as mention in the web.
    ** Only 3 music rooms and not 5 as mention in the web.
    ** Drinks is really expensive inside; 7€ Vodka, 3.5€ beer (example) so it's better to be tipsy from the first.
    ** should always verify prices (for vodka and beer I paid 10.5€ first time and 11€ second time in other bar)
    ** Inside are many bars, so u're not obliged to wait for wile to be served.
    ** Music is really good
    ** First room in the first floor is quite big with good music
    ** Start being full since 1 a.m; at 3 a.m is the best.
    ** Close at 6a.m not at 5 as mention in the web site.
    ** Many WC's for men and girls.
    ** Full of beautiful girls.
    ** Smoking is forbidden; only in some areas, but since it's full it become allowed.
    ** Since 4.45 a.m every thing was ok, since .... I don't remember ;-))

    Dress Code: easy to find. use L1 (red Line) 3rd metro stop after Placa catalynya.
    adress available in www.razzmatazz.com

    Elephant: Dancing in a nice atmosphere

    by flyfreak Updated Jan 8, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Elephant is a cool place for dancing. If you are in a group you can afford to buy one of the VIP tables where you can sit and chill a bit after a long dance ... I would say it is a Buddha-style bar, kind of ;-)

    Nice interior and have a look at the different areas on the webpage.

    Dress Code: I guess there is no strict code, but people are nicely dressed.

    Fonfone: Choice electro, disco and funk tunes

    by lechap71 Written Jun 26, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Despite its reputation as being a party capital, Barcelona has a pretty lame music policy. It's mostly earnest indie rock and banging faceless house music. Fonfone is one place where you can generally hear good tunes which you can dance to without being completely wasted. It's also free and the drinks are reasonably-priced. And I've never ever seen a mullet in there. And the girls are very cute. So are the boys for that matter.

    Dress Code: The crowd is quite trendy but not arrogant so you can wear what you like.

    CIBELES: I Could Have Danced All Night

    by gilabrand Updated Jan 14, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Never too old

    Normally I don’t write about places I haven’t experienced in the flesh. On top of that, after a day of walking my feet off in some foreign country I rarely go dancing at night. But if I ever go back to Barcelona, I will definitely try Cibeles.

    Attracted by the bright neon sign directly across the street from our hotel on Corcega Street, we went over to peek inside. It was a dance club for “oldies” (age-wise, I guess I fit the bill) that was packed with locals who looked like they were having a ball. There was a live orchestra, and couples were on the dance floor, kicking up a storm.

    So if you like to fox trot, tango and waltz, or believe it's never too late to learn, Cibeles may be just the thing. To quote the sage words of my friend’s T-shirt: Over what hill? Where? When? I don’t remember any hill!

    The bouncer at the door was very friendly. Free admission for the ladies, he said. It was tempting, but we were just too exhausted.

    Antilla: Dancing salsa in Antilla

    by Valeggua Updated Sep 6, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had a good time coming here at Antilla latin club. It has a nice caribean atmosphere and every now and then they have live bands and salsa workshops. BTW It's also a lot of fun for the not-salsa-dancers.

    Pictures and more info about events you can find on their website.

    The Milk Cafe: Funky House bar

    by JulesH Updated Apr 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    (if you look closely, you might be able to make it out in the distance! The view is from Parc Guell across the city.)
    A small but stylish bar playing everything from chilled, funky house and US Garage to acid Jazz. Very narrow but well planned on three levels. Tables and a bar on the ground floor with trippy oil lamp projections on the walls make a pleasant area to chat and relax. The DJ box is up a flight of stairs in front of a small area with comfy red sofas to lounge in. The top section houses a small dance area and second bar. The atmosphere is relaxed and a trendy but unpretentious crowd are found here.

    Dress Code: stylish

    Dancing: The Republic

    by mxnxcx Written Apr 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a huge strip of clubs ... back to back along side the beach there are 10 clubs with a mixture of different types of music ..

    mostly American RandB or HipHop ...
    some had salsa and spanish music ...
    all for some reason had strips dancing to the music on the bar counters

    but very fun strip ... you can take a metro easy enough there and walk down the street to the clubs ... dance the night away and get back on at 5 am when they open again

    if your on vacation why not get your groove on . ... really a must DO

    Dress Code: basically on the beach ... La Repubblica

    Dancing: OT-TO

    by parsix Updated Mar 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    perfect balance



    The place is very New York style: modern, stylish and with character. What I liked most was the space. The local counts with three dance floors: the main is dance and techno. In the second floor you will find a much more packed room with hip-hop and a very cool lounge which plays a variety of "oldies" as I will call it. The last was my favourite, as the lighting is dimm down but not out, and there is many tables available to chill out whilst listening to tunes.



    Dress Code: Like many places in BCN do not show up before 0200 as you will fin NO one.

    'The lights at night'

    For all of you that love to reach for the Lasers, there are a few great clubs for dancing, The first is 'Moog' (I think thats how you spell it) They play a range of dance music including, Techno, Electro, Hard House, Trance, Breaks and House music. Moog is very popular with the tourist, it is always guaranteed to be packed on the weekend, it's not a huge venue, but has a large dance floor and a kick ass sound system.

    If you really want to party like the Spanish than 'La Terreza' is the club for you. It is known as one of the best places in town, If you speak English there is a good chance you won't get in, so practice your Catalan. This place is crazy, once inside anything is possible. It has a range of music depending on what night your there, but it is always crowded with locals dancing the night away. La Terraza is a 15 minute taxi ride outside the town centre, check the internet for address details. Last time I was there, dress codes were non existant, especially in the summer months where most women dance in little more than underwear,
