Discover the Barcelona Nightlife

Written by Adriana

When you travel to a foreign city, apart from visiting the landmarks and monuments, you should also enjoy the entertainment it offers, especially in summer and in a city like Barcelona.

But sometimes it’s hard to know where to go and not finish your night surrounded by tourists, you being one of them, or paying too much to drink.

To prevent this from happening to you, here are some tips and recommendations on areas and establishments you should include in your night tour in Barcelona.

We start our journey in the charming neighborhood of l’Eixample, specifically in the bar-restaurant Lexington (C / Muntaner 108), where you can taste exquisite Mexican inspired dishes in a cool environment at very affordable prices.

Once you’ve filled your stomach you will be ready to dive in the Barcelona night … starting having a drink at the bar Betty Ford (C / Joaquin Costa 56) in the middle of Raval, one of the most attractive areas for young locals, as in it they have art museums (MACBA, CCCB), music shops, design studios, and vintage clothing stores, among others. If you still feel like getting another drink or you didn’t find where to sit at the Betty Ford, continue walking down Joaquim Costa street until the Cassette Bar (C / de l’Est 11), which, despite being a bit far away from the first “stop” in l’Eixample and hidden in the Raval district, serves one of the best gin and tonics you’ve ever tasted.

Sala Apolo

Enough of warming up the engine! Let’s start the party!

To go out from 1’30am until the sun comes up (remember that in Spain the night party is a little later than in the rest of Europe), you have several options.

For me, the best nightclub in Barcelona right now is the Sala Apolo (C/Nou de la Rambla 113), because it has the best musical offer in its two rooms (la [2] de la Apolo and Apolo, separated by a staircase) and does not adhere to a certain music style or age.

Each weekday you will find concerts and parties of all kinds, although the weekend is for electronic music (in the Sala Apolo) and indie rock (in la [2]).

Another good option, not far from the Raval area is the disco Moog (C/de l’Arc del Teatre, 3), a club dedicated to electronic music where the controversial leader of The Libertines and Babyshambles, Pete Doherty, went hen he was visiting Barcelona.

If your stay for a long period of time in Barcelona and want to know more places to go out at night, you can also give a chance to the Sala Razzmatazz (C/Almogàvers 122), one of the biggest clubs in the city, with 5 rooms in which you will move like a fish in the water depending on your musical tastes, and find a younger audience, between 18 and 25 years old.

There are many other bars, clubs, and discos in the neighbourhoods that I have mentioned on this article, it’s up to you if you want to discover them by yourself, always looking at the prices and the people inside.

That’s the key!For more information about our rental apartments in Barcelona visit our website ShBarcelona.
