    Night Clubs: Crazy Clubs of Barcelona

    by foreverstoked Updated Feb 28, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're looking for dancing and partying and an overall great night out in Barcelona, you will definitely love the club scene here!

    FYI:
    +The clubs are not as full during Monday to Wednesday, and sometimes only a small portion of the clubs are open on these days. I'd spend these nights going out to a pub or getting some much needed sleep to prepare for crazy nights ahead! Haha.
    +Drinks usually start at around 9 euros so I recommend buying your own liquor and make your own drinks, or pre-gaming at a pub before dancing the night away, the club scene doesn't start raging until after 1:00AM anyways. (and can last until day time, I went to sleep at 2:00PM after one crazy night!).
    +Use promoters to get into clubs for FREE, or pay 10-30 euro!

    Recommended places to pre-game:
    +Taberna del Espit: Bar with beer pong table and SELF-SERVICE, for under 5 euros you fill your glass with AS MUCH alcohol of your choice, then choose a juice or soda to fill the rest of the glass. Awesome yet dangerous, trust me!
    +Espit Chupitos: Shot bar with hundreds of shots to choose from, starting at 2 euros.

    Near the beach you will find many clubs OPIUM MAR, CATWALK, and SOTAVENTO, ICE BAR, and SHOKO, as well as the others (with no cover charge) by the marina.
    +OPIUM MAR is my favorite out of the beach clubs, great music from Frank Caro (resident dj at Opium) and many handsome guys to dance with, Steve Aoki played here and this place was WILD!! ... I love it on a Friday night for "F#CK PROMOTERS". ***Cover is 20 euro unless you find a promoter. There is also a dress code here, females can get away with wearing anything but males must dress nice and no jeans and no street shoes!! Or as long as the shoes are ALL BLACK.***
    +CATWALK is okay, just about anyone can get in and there is no dress code, but always full of exchange students. Two floors, ground level plays electro and the top level has hiphop. There is also a terrace on the top of the club where many people gather to chill out on the roof for a smoke break! The guys in Catwalk were a lot more grabby and pushy, which I didn't like, creepy!
    +ICE BAR was okay, wouldn't go again, typical ice bar, (the glasses were made from ice, etc.) but a little tacky in my opinion.

    +RAZZMATAZZ should not be missed as it is the biggest club in Barcelona, it was once a factory but now it is a nightclub with 5 different levels of clubs inside: Razzclub, The Loft, Lolita, Pop Bar, & Rex Room. I love dubstep night here! You can either take the metro to the Marina metro stop or Bogatell metro stop and walk to the club.

    +PRIVÉ is another great club located in the Diagonal area. Great atmosphere, little more locals here and cool themes (Wednesdays: YOLO BARCELONA, Tuesdays: NEVER TELL YOUR BOYFRIEND, etc.)! It is also walking distance from the two drinking bars mentioned above and another club, SOHO.

    +CITY HALL is located across from Plaza Catalunya, on the opposite end of the Apple store. It has two floors, the top with a small lounge and downstairs (I believe it's called the Rebel Room) with spacious dancing areas. Music here can vary between electro, rock, or live music. I was here with friends on F#ck & Rock and this place was insane, rock music and tons of people! The themes are: Mondays: F#ck & Rock, Tuesdays: Wild Tuesdays, Wednesdays: Pigs & Diamonds, Thursdays: Club 4, Friday: Exa Club, Saturday: Pure City Nites, Sunday: The Black Room

    Other clubs worth partying at:
    +BLING BLING,
    +OTTO ZUTZ,
    +RESET,
    +BIKINI,
    +ASTORIA,
    +SUTTON,
    +ELEPHANT

    Dress Code: Dress to impress, you will most likely have your photo taken by club photographers! No jeans or sneakers allowed unless they are ALL BLACK, at most clubs.

    Night Clubs: Best nightclubs in Catalonia

    by danteperezlleida Written Jul 5, 2012
    Clubs in Catalonia

    Catalonia is divided in 4 provinces (Barcelona, Lleida, Tarragona and Girona), and after having visited every one of them I will try to detail the best places when it comes to youth tourism.

    In the first place I will refer to Barcelona's must go nightclubs, like Catwalk and Soho. In the first one, music tend to be the most commercial european dance, what makes the club filled with the local youngest and casual people, that along with the 50% tourists in the club, create a nice and crazy atmosphere. On the other hand, Soho club is more snobbish, and local people are more concerned about the music, besides dress code is stricter. However, if you plan to visit the city in summer I would recommend you to go to Sitges, the best beach in Barcelona province hands down, specially for going out at night.

    If you are going to Tarragona, the best areas in terms of party are the coast ones, being its main exponence Salou and La Pineda, where the biggest Pacha of Catalonia is located. However, nightlife in Tarragona province are only worth in summer, where young tourists from the whole Europe come to enjoy the sun and party.

    The same can be said for Girona, as it is in its coasts where the party scene is concentrated. The best places to go for this purpose are Lloret de Mar and Platja d'Aro.

    Finally, Lleida is for me the best clubbing destination in Catalonia (and this is said by a Barcelonese), as the party stays the same during the whole year. Here are the biggest clubs not only of Catalonia but also of Spain, like Larida, Bigben and Wonder, which are mainly crowded by Spaniards, (as so far, tourists seem to not have discovered the place), and whose parties, always under the performances of the best deejays, are comparable to those in Ibiza.

    Dress Code: jeans and unbuttoned shirt rules for boys. Girls tend to dress classy, but in summer everybody tend to dress casual style and colorful.

    Night Clubs: If you're in a clubbing mood...

    by aventurasdejacey Written Apr 23, 2012

    Shoko Characters

    If you're a college student or young adult looking for a great time, the BCN club scene delivers. The "beach clubs" like Shoko, Opium Mar, Catwalk, and Sotavento are all great places for dancing and partying. You'll find people from all over the world, usually a young crowd of international students and locals mixed in. Drinks at these places are expensive and there's usually a cover charge (both around 7-12Euros), so I'd recommend drinking at a bar before hand. They clubs don't get busy until after 2AM anyway.

    I would definitely check Barcelona facebook groups for students studying abroad, or local club promotions, because you can usually find a group that can get you into the clubs without paying the cover before a certain time.

    IMPORTANT: These places are overrun with guys that will steal wallets or purses from tourists without anyone noticing. They usually pick them up when someone's not looking or they reach into pockets to pull out valuables, once again without being noticed. I would definitely recommend bags with zippers or hidden pockets. Keep an eye out for your friends if you're planning on getting drunk, because these thieves are professionals and they are very very good at stealing from non-locals. I wouldn't say they're anything to be scared of, but just be aware of it.

    Dress Code: Girls usually have no problems getting in as long as you look over 18 and are wearing something a step above casual. Guys on the other hand should wear collared shirts or button downs, because they're sometimes strict about that.

    Danzatoria: A pleasant dance floor with garden...

    by Tripack Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    UPDATE :
    SORRY CLOSED DOWN IN 2006

    Danzatoria is located up on the hill of Tibidabo. This former villa has been transformed into one of the best night clubs in Barcelona.

    Various floors with four different ambiences and musical styles that make it accessible for everybody that loves to dance.

    Great interior design and an impressive thousand-square-metre garden so you can chat and dance under the stars!

    Drinks could seem you a little bit pricey but entrance is free of charge!

    TIP: as the Club closed at 3AM, it could be tricky to get a taxi there, so leave before or prepare a Plan B.

    Dress Code:
    Be smart!

    Row 14: Amazing afterparties in ROW 14 - Dancing under sun

    by badzgo Updated Mar 28, 2011

    Row 14
    1 more image

    I am a person seeking quality clubbing experince and I have heard about special Sunday afterparties in club called Row 14 in Barcelona. I have come in February to see if the rumors were true. And i was AMAZED!
    They open at 6am and at 8 am the club was full of colorful crowd enjoying great music.

    Few years ago I was in Ibiza and since then I haven't experienced something similar. If it is sunny, the club opens the roof on the mainstage and people dance in the sunshine. There is also second Barstage and 2 outside terraces.

    I have to admit that after this experience I became addicted on these parties and I am going there every weekend, coz they always surprise me with new names of DJs and the whole theme of each party.
    Absolutely recommendable :o))

    Dress Code: no dresscode

  • Night Clubs: Liquid

    by Bri01 Written Aug 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I highly recommend Liquid, about 15/20 minutes bus ride from outside Hard Rock Cafe at the top of La Rambla.
    It was recommended to us when me and my friends were in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago.
    You can buy a ticket from one of the people selling them on La Rambla (our tickets were £5 each, then you have to pay a little bit more when you actually get to the club)
    Then you show your ticket and get on a bus outside Hard Rock Cafe that is specifically for that club.
    On the night that we went it was a foam party which was loads of fun, although some of my clothes that I left on the side did end up in the pool so be aware that most of your stuff will probably get wet!
    It is an outdoor club with a huge swimming pool, although drinks are quite expensive (€9 when we went).
    It closed at around 5/5:30 and then there are special buses used to take people back to La Rambla, as the club is quite out of the way!

    Dress Code: Bring a swimming costume/bikini!

  • Lotus Theater: Cool live music shows

    by ClaraGR Written Jul 31, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Last weekend I went to a very cool place. I arrived at about 00.30 and got to see part of a live music show, which was very good. It's called Lotus Theater and it is a new club in Barcelona. It opened on 10th July. From midnight to 1.30 there are cool live music performances: funk, soul, jazz, bossa nova, etc. And then, after these shows there are a couple of DJs playing music until 4.30 or 5 am.

    There's a very relaxed atmosphere, very good looking people and the waiters are very fast in general. Drinks are about 9 euros but if you pay for the ticket (12 euros) you get a drink for free. It's open form Thursday to Sunday.

    I didn't see many foreigners so I think it's for local people rather that tourists, but it's worth a visit!!
    I think everyone visiting Barcelona should go and check it out.

    Dress Code: Try to dress up, otherwise you'll feel awkward. Most people are smartly dressed.
    No shorts or flip flops!!

    La Fira: Part fairytale, part Fellini

    flyer of La Fira Bar

    * * * * * *
    Last news: we went around half past midnight on a Saturday night and found it shut. Perhaps it is seasonal, or perhaps it has gone. I'll try to update this tip... but in the meanwhile, better you know this place may be not there anymore (that would be a shame...)
    * * * * * * *

    This is the place I like to go with first-time Barcelona visitors...

    You should enter the place trough a corridor of distorting mirrors, at this point you can imagine you will not find a common place at the end.... A journey back to the wonderful world of the infancy.... or the forgotten set of a horror film, it depends on your mood or your own memories. The place will not left you indifferent.

    Here, you can relax and have a drink sitting in a swing, opposite to a bar of the XIXth century under the shade of an incredible tent. Automats, fortune-tellers, carousel pieces, etc. A world of fantasy and imagination. The owner of this bizarre place brought the scraps of a disused fun fair (the old "Tibidabo") and created here a magical atmosphere.

    Too quiet during weekdays, but crowded on weekends, after midnight.

    Now it's a non-smoking bar, in case this means to you. For me it's another positive point! :)

    El Cangrejo: Queens of the night

    by Belsaita Updated Feb 1, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Carmen de Mairena, the resident queen

    ATTENTION: this place has re-opened, but not as it was :-(

    I did not delete this tip as you can find other info that's not up to date

    It once was one of my favorites to have some fun with friends. Old-style cabaret club, later in the night a fun dancing place. Now, after closing and renovating it, I've to say it has lost all its old charm.

    I'm not sure if there is the drag-queens show, starting around 10 PM (the resident queen is Carmen de Mairena). It used to be quite fun (assuming you can understand Spanish) and sooooooo kistch and decadent. Hope it's still this way, but I doubt I'll go to check it

    Later, around midnight, you can enter the place for 3 euros, a basic drink included (i.e. a regular beer, for special drinks you'll have to pay the difference). There is always crowded, you may have to queue to enter. Once inside, fun music from the 80's and a few latest hits
