Renowned for its wild nightlife, Barcelona is a great city for going out at night. In this article, ShBarcelona takes you away from the hectic club scene for a pleasant and peaceful evening; dinner, a glass of wine with friends or simply some nighttime sightseeing.

Visiting La Pedrera by day is memorable, but visiting at night is something else. Here you will discover Gaudi’s famous terrace with its wild ornamentation and panoramic view of Barcelona, whilst being serenaded by live music. In summer, enjoy the Noches de verano when La Pedrera provides a magnificent setting for live jazz performances. At any time of year, you can choose the combined day and night tour, and appreciate the changing aspects of Gaudi’s masterpiece.

The rooftop of the Hotel Casa Fuster

What could be better than a glass of wine on a terrace with a wonderful view of Barcelona? The city is crammed full of unique rooftops, each one crazier than the last. Rooftop clubs where you can hardly hear yourself speak have become something of a cliché. Nevertheless, it is possible to have a beautiful view of Barcelona in a peaceful setting. Hotel Casa Fuster offers its incredible rooftop for an evening of elegance and intimacy. And the best part? You don’t have to be a hotel guest to enjoy the bar and its 5-star luxury.
