    When we attempted to go out in Barcelona we were stopped by a nudist making a presentation....it was good fun and interesting to see.

    We did get into one club but left before it opened.....(i don't know how that works but it happened...)

    the streets: nighttime madness

    by j_laurent Updated Mar 7, 2003

    While roaming the streets at around 3am with my friends, we saw a group of guys throwing beer bottles at eachother! They seemed to be friends, they were laughing the entire time, and appeared quite drunk. (too bad I didn't have my camera with me!!) People watching is a great nighttime activity in Barcelona. :-) You can observe crazy people, attractive people...Barcelona has it all and more..

  • Espit Chupitos: Most fun you'll have taking shots, period!

    the

    This place, called "Chupitos" (which means "shots" in Catalan or Spanish) is an experience in and of itself. They cram as many people as humanly possible into a space that looks to be about 15' by 50' , with a bar that basically runs the length of the place. Anyone, they have dozens (maybe even over a hundred) different types of shots. To name some: The Flaming Shot, the Monica Lewinsky shot (as dirty as it sounds), the Red Headed Step-Child shot...and of course, more traditional ones like kamikazes and all of that. This isn't a place that's meant to be a final destination, but definitely a great place to go for your warmup, before moving on to crazier things. You're guarenteed to have a great time if you go here with a few friends.

    Dress Code: Very Casual

    Kentucky: A good drink

    by cat54 Updated Aug 14, 2004

    Kentucky is this outta the way bar in the tourist area that is la Rambla. Ithe entrance to the street doesn't look like anything other than a service drive but keep going and you will see that it is a street. It is across the Placa Real towards the Barre Chine.(look up the area )in the guides. The bartendersare very cool in there and the older gentleman got a big kick outta serving a Makers Mark for us. The coolest thing about the bar is that they close the door when it gets to crowded and from the outside you can't tell that there's a party going on inside. It's a ***in joint.
    Be safe and enjoy!

  • On The Streets: A beautiful place to get lost

    by baaa Written Oct 18, 2006

    Like Elliot Smith brilliantly put it, Barcelona is a "beautiful place to get lost". Get lost in the small and dark streets of Raval and Barrio Gotico. Walk into the most dodgy-looking bar you can find, and you will have the time of your life. Seriously. Forget Puerto Olimpico and people-watching on the Ramblas. That's for tourists who don't have anything better to do. Feel the real Barcelona, talk to random strangers and walk into random places. And Barcelona is probably one of the best cities in Europe to do so!

    Place Real on Night: On the streets

    Place Real on Night

    Barcelona is a city of noctambulists. The center is enlivened very until very late in the night... or very early the morning (according to if you are a merrymaker or if you tempt to rest you in a higher room).
