Best nightclubs in Barcelona

Written by Karen

If you’re up for an exhilarating, thrilling and possibly mind-blowing experience that will see you partying from night to day, then Barcelona nightlife awaits. In this buzzing, lively and cosmopolitan city, there’s never a need to wait until the weekend for a good night with most of the city’s clubs pumping weekdays.

Apolo nightclub Barcelona

So whether you’re in the mood for glitz and glam, cheesy and greasy, or dance and trance, you’re sure to have a night to remember at one these top Barcelona nightclubs.




Apolo is a must for those who appreciate good quality sound and style. It’s a quirky and alternative venue that’s well-known across the city’s most hip and happening crowds. Weekends tend to draw an older audience who are keen to get their moves on to dance tracks by international artists and DJs. You’ll find Monday is a great night of the week to experience this famous Barcelona nightclub with its Nasty Mondays theme and a mix of styles and genres to keep the crowd jumping. You also won’t want to miss a night at Apolo on Wednesday, with its Caníbal Club theme and intense mix of reggae, soul and world music that will keep you going until the early hours of the morning. Apolo is located at Carrer Nou de la Rambla, 113.

A self-described originator in the history of Barcelona’s music scene, Razzmatazz can indeed be considered one of the ringleaders in bringing top national and international acts to the city’s vibrant club scene. It features five clubs that transform into spectacular venues for parties, fashion shows, gala events, as well as spaces for a night out that will rock your socks off. It’s another top spot on Wednesdays, with its fun-loving and friendly El Dirty party: a night that sees a mix of locals and travellers dance to modern pop-rock as well as some cheesy classics. Razzmatazz is located at 1er piso, Carrer de Pamplona, 88.


With its dramatic lighting, pulsating beats and sophisticated interior, Sutton means business for serious partygoers. It used to attract an older crowd but has now become part of the scene for those looking to rub shoulders with the gloss, glitter and glam of Barcelona. Over the years, Sutton has seen many celebrities enter its doors, including actors, sportspeople, business personalities and the like. But at its core is a drive to deliver sexy house and dance beats in a deliciously decadent atmosphere. Thursday nights tend to have a more upbeat, energetic and young vibe. Sutton is at Calle Tuset, 13.

Opium Barcelona

Cocktails BarcelonaIf you want the best of both worlds by heading to a place where you can ease into the night with fabulous food and delectable cocktails before joining the throngs for some cool beats, then Opium Barcelona is the place for you. It also has a great terrace where you can take a breather to enjoy the sea breeze thanks to the club’s location in Barceloneta. Opium Barcelona draws a chic and cultured crowd who come to enjoy top international DJs and artists. You’ll be joined by the masses over the weekends but there are also some great early and mid-week parties on offer, particularly on Monday nights. Opium Barcelona is at Passeig Marítim, 34.

Sala BeCool

It’s coming up to ten years since Sala BeCool starting belting out top tunes and making a name for itself as the place to go for lovers of dance music. The club’s open space is dedicated solely to a dance floor and its unpretentious and fun-loving feel can be a refreshing change compared to some of the glitz and glam of other clubs across the city. Thursdays are a good night to party hard with Barcelona’s student crowd. Sala BeCool is located at Plaça de Joan Llongueras, 5.
