Razzmatazz is an iconic place, both nationally and internationally known for its recreational and cultural activities. It is located in a unique building in an industrial setting and with a characteristic façade.

Razzmatazz has just celebrated its 17th anniversary. Razzmatazz hosts all kinds of events, from parties and shows, to presentations and galas. It also serves as a location for shooting films and commercials.

The interior of Razzmatazz can be transformed in accordance with the needs of each specific event and every different moment. You will find Razzmatazz in the Poblenou neighbourhood. Go there for a concert and a drink, because here, it doesn’t matter at all what age you are.

Luz de Gas

With over one thousand live performances since 1995, you will find that Luz de Gas has live music basically every night it is open. There is also room for theatre, magic and other activities.

Some of the artists that have performed on Luz de Gas’s stage are Alan Parsons Project, The Corrs, Antonio Orozco, Estopa, Duncan Dhu, Cómplices, Efecto mariposa, Juanes, Level 42, Los secretos, Tam Tam Go and Monica Green.

This place is perfect for your next night out, and it is located in the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district. With different types of music, you can enjoy a drink and a dance, and you will surely notice its mature and very attractive staff.

Otto Zutz

This discotheque is not exclusively for senior adults, but its visitors are generally people of over 40. Otto Zutz is located at Carrer de Lincoln, 15, in the very lively Gràcia district. It first opened its doors in 1985, so it is very well-known in the city.

There are three different party styles to choose from, so you select the one you feel like most. If you want a private area for you and your friends, that can be arranged as well. This place is absolutely the best if you like New York style music, like R&B and Hip Hop.

Karma opened its doors for the very first time on December 31st, 1978, and since then it has become the best rock club in Barcelona.

Karma is located right in the centre of Barcelona, at the charming Plaza Real in the Ciutat Vella district, which is the nerve centre of Barcelona’s nightlife.

The club is faithful to its rock and underground music, and with all those years of experience, you can enjoy the best music and a lovely atmosphere unlike anywhere else. If you want to listen to the best Rock, Rock & Roll, Pop, Soul, Blues, Hard Rock, Indie and Heavy metal hits of all time, be sure to visit Karma.

Magic Club

You will find Magic Club in the Born neighbourhood, and this club has stayed true to one (and this is one important) principle, and that is playing the best rock ‘n roll music.

If there is one nightclub in the city where you’ll hear punk, Ramones and countless other garage rock groups, then it’s at Magic Club.

Are there other clubs for people over 40 you can recommend?
