Barcelona Nightlife

Looking for things to do in Barcelona after dark? We have some tips on how to explore the nightlife in Barcelona.

Barcelona at night is vibrant and vivid; so don’t just wander up and down La Rambla… Why not plan at least one special evening, which will include a unique activity such as a guided tour to see Barcelona illuminated? How about a passionate flamenco show or an intimate gourmet tour of the city, with tasty tapas and some Catalan wine? For some reason, most of the tourists end up at La Rambla. Nothing wrong with that, but there is so much more to explore! You’re missing everything else that Barcelona has to offer you…

We suggest avoiding the crowds and instead head to the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic), which is full with night clubs and fashionable bars. One of our favorites is the Polaroid bar, where you can enjoy great drinks at great prices. While in Barri Gotic, you could head over to Carrer Ample or hang out at La Rambla. Make sure you try a Mojito or a Caipirinha, which are considered to be some of the city’s signature cocktails.

Nightlife in Barcelona – Bars, nightclubs & more

Fancy clubbing? Then don’t forget to head over to the beach area, to find the best nightclubs of the city. Two of the popular clubs are Opium Mar which offers a selection of amazing DJ sets and electronic music, and Shoko has a more commercial ambiance for you to dance to your favorite hits.

With hot weather, it’s no surprise that the beach is the most popular area in Barcelona. When the sun sets down, you see the locals heading to the beach to relax with friends until late hours. Why not grab a bottle of wine and do just the same?
