Barcelona's best club for jazz and black music fans organizes live performances by some of the world's finest musicians nearly every night of the week. The regulars include many of the city's small black community along with a smattering of tourists and trendy modern types. The music is a very danceable mixture of trip-hop, hip-hop, jazz and Latin. Some of the club's dancers show you how it's meant to be done on the lower dance floor while on the upper dance floor there's Latin music for everyone to dance to.
Dress Code: open hours: 10pm-5am daily
Dancefloor - Lower Floor
Situated on the ground floor of the building, is a two level area where you can find the dance floor, three bars, a light and sound booth and other services such as coat check rooms and bathrooms.
Hot Club - First Floor
A space with its own personality located on the first floor of the discoteque. Its modern decoration is based on ribboned wood that creates the effect of a “sounding box”. The simple decoration combines silver and white colors. Its a small club inside the club, with two bars, an independent sound and light booth, as well as a spectacular audiovisual and lighting system.
The hot club is an international and cosmopolitan ambiance where you can find the best sounds of black music, and the best offers of funky and hip hop in the city.
A mixture of race, color, and sound = HOT CLUB.
Red Room - First Floor
A new created area completely decorated in long red cloths that cover the floors and leather sofas. A large red dome of non flamable nylon presides over the room, where an independent sound system of electro-80’s music flows through the dance floor transforming it into an infernal paradise.
It is the favorite room for the more underground public, where flirting is normal and the waitresses still leave you thirsty no matter how many drinks you have
We went to this club on a Thursday night. We got there at about midnight and it was empty, but soom filled up with locals. We watched the local lads breakdance which was fantastic! The music was a mixture of Hip Hop and Spanish House. Of course, 9 girls attracted the attention of the breakdancing boys and we all attempted to converse using one of the guys as enterpretuer!
The drinks are pretty expensive in there but you do get the usual Spanish measure of spirits i.e. LARGE!.
The only warning I could give about this place is watch your bag! I left mine on the seat where we were all sitting, and I watched one of the guys we were talking to drop his jumper over my bag and then pick the jumper and the bag up and blatantly attempt to steal it! I just laughed at him shook my head and snatched it back (well there were about 20 of them - I wasn't about to kick it off with him!!!)
I would also recommend that you get a taxi home as it it's in a quiet area where there are not many tourists at that time of night.
Dress Code: Anything goes!
One of the best bars in Barcelona, along with Dot. Great venue and once the party is in full flow, a very vibrant bar. Hard to find (North of Ramblas), as it is down a horrible little road, and there is no sign stating that the place is called Salsitas.
Come here to take something, dance or talk with friends between nice people, from universitary until some famous. I usually go on Friday, come!
After here you can go to Tunel Casanovas to continue the party, it´s very near!
Dress Code: Well dressed, not too much
El Otto, el Universal, La Fira.
El ambiente del Otto es el de una disco neoyorquina, pero está lleno de guiris y gente guapa. El del Universal es similar, pero sin guiris (casi). Por último, La Fira tiene siempre un ambiente de fiesta en pleno Eixample barcelonés.
Dress Code: Modernos, clásicos, pero sobre todo gente con buen rollo.
Nice place if you like dancing salsa, merengue and bachata in a tropical decor. It's open every night until 5 am.
On the camping there was sometimes Line-dancing for the kids.
Once there was a Night-rock-festival on the beach. It lasted whole night.
Dress Code: Everything is possible
Well... dancing and smoking of course! Is a small bar and restaurant also to taste good african food. Lovely place!
SALSEROS: Go to Salsa Buenavista, 217 Calle Rosellon!
Salsa Buenavista - the best salsa club I found in Spain! Great dancers, and the largest rueda circle I've ever seen! Check it out salseros WEPA!!
