In this article we will give you a complete guide to the nightlife in Barcelona with some of the best bars, hangouts, nightclubs, and some unmissable events if you’re new in Barcelona or at Xior Collblanc.
Whether you want to go all-out clubbing or if you’d like a more laid-back dinner and drinks with a view, we’ve got your covered, either way you will find the perfect venue for you.
A good starting point for new residents at Xior Collblanc is of course Las Ramblas. Barcelona’s busiest boulevard by day, Las Ramblas is also pretty heavy by night. This street changes in the early stages of the evening when the street performers are still playing their music and the locals and tourists heading out for drinks and dinner. Typically, these restaurants are spilling over with customers searching for the famous tapas (although you can find better quality for cheaper in other places).
This is the city’s most international and eclectic district, and with the most exciting spots for enjoying the nightlife in Barcelona. This is a neighborhood which never seems to die, it’s always buzzing with sounds, lights, and the energy of young, enthusiastic locals and tourists strolling down and exploring the nightlife of this amazing city.
As you walk through its streets, you’ll feel the aromas of other cultures. At night-time, the Raval gives you the opportunity to try exotic cuisine and local dishes.
It is a lively, multi-cultural neighborhood with a huge variety of tempting cafes, restaurants and bars. Some bohemian bars and cafés retain the atmosphere of a bygone age and remain some of the most popular places on Barcelona’s night-time scene. Raval has also become fashionable being host to a wide variety of art studios, galleries and trendy bookshops.
A similarly alternative vibe to Raval prevails in the district of Gracia, a neighborhood in the city of Barcelona which is just minutes away from the center. Here you’ll find a very Catalan quarter oozing charisma and aspiring artists, it’s like somehow you feel as if you have entered a completely new city. The young, artsy and bohemian vibe of the neighborhood has drawn in artists and musicians from all over, so you will have many fine bars, like the excellent La Cigale and La Fourmi that cater to the barri’s more Bohemian residents. Alternatively, if it’s a hot day or don’t want to spend a lot of money, you can just hang out on one of Gracia’s many squares, such as the Plaça del Sol.
Clubs and Discos in Barcelona
Razzmatazz is actually five venues in one. When you visit this club, you’ll find a wide variety of music genres being played, though the genres tend to be exclusive to one of the five halls. Razzmatazz is arguably Barcelona’s one and only super club.
Some of your options include indie, electronic and pop. The Loft is one of the best places in town to hear techno, electro and dubstep. For Indie lovers you have the Razz Club, the Pop Bar is your go-to for classic pop and the Rex Room is the venue’s main dance floor and live-music stage, which has welcomed the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, Passion Pit and Calvin Harris. And Lolita plays a mixture of house, electropop, nu-disco and electronica.
Alternatively, you can take an adventure and get lost in the maze of pumping dance floors and confusing corridors.
Other club which you cannot miss, is Pacha Barcelona, one of the best nightclubs in Barcelona. Pacha Barcelona is a notable nightclub in town that generally has a different musical style every day allowing subsequent visits with new experiences.
This club came to the city of Barcelona after his big famous club Pacha Ibiza. Party like you’re in Ibiza at Pacha, Barcelona, located by the waterfront in Port Olímpic. The main room is the stage for international and the hottest DJs of dance, electro and house music of the moment. In the secondary room you will enjoy the latest reggaeton and Pachanga hits. On Sundays, you can enjoy slightly different sounds, including hip-hop, R&B and reggaeton.
MOOG is Barcelona’s ultimate electronic music venue. This place has a Berlin underground feel, except under the Mediterranean sun. Open 365 days a year, MOOG helped introduce electronic music to the city back in the mid-1990s when it opened, and it continues to host some of the biggest names in the electro, house and techno scene throughout the year.
With one of the best nightclubs in town MOOG offers 2 floors of fun, in a building that has been used as a venue for more than a century. On the top floor, you’ll find yourself in the mirror room that offers more pop-oriented sets. Meanwhile, the bottom floor plays house music and underground techno.
You’ll find it conveniently located right in the heart of downtown Barcelona, so it’s close to several other prominent attractions.
Without a doubt, the Opium Barcelona nightclub is one of the best nightclubs in Barcelona and one of the first must-see clubs. Opium is the place to catch the famous DJs like Whiz Khalifa, French Montana, Tiesto or Martin Garrix during the summer. This nightclub offers different evenings with different musical styles depending on the day of the week.
This venue is for people who like to see and be seen, high heels, designer labels and magnums of champagne are all part of the atmosphere at this exclusive club, which has attracted a few celebrities on occasion. The dance floor features white-satin couches, chrome-and-glass tables and sleek modern decor, and the chic crowds dance to the beat of mainstream electronic music.
It is located on the Paseo Marítimo de la Barceloneta with a view to the Mediterranean Sea and Barceloneta, the most famous beach in Barcelona. Thanks to its great national and international fame, it is considered one of the best nightclubs in the entire Olympic Village along with other nightclubs.
