As the capital city of the country that gave the world Sangria and Flamenco dancing, Barcelona has a big reputation to live up to when it comes to partying. And fortunately, it never fails to deliver. The nightlife in Barcelona is deservedly legendary, but the best spots are sometimes a little hard to find if you’re just visiting. Especially if you get caught up in one of the many many hostel-run bar crawls. To make the most of Barcelona’s party scene, get yourself down to one of the following places:

 

Nasty Mondays at Apolo

Address: C/Nou de la Rambla 112

As the name suggests, you should head here on a Monday night. Resident DJs have been ruining Tuesdays for Barcelonites and visitors alike for almost a decade now, and Nasty Mondays is still as good as ever. More casual than a lot of Barcelona’s clubs, with an amazing mix of indie, 80s rock and garage acts pumping from the decks, head here to jump about with a more alternative crowd every week.

Razzmatazz

Address: C Almogavers 122 – C Pamplona 88

An absolute beast of a club, Razzmatazz is really five clubs in one. Downstairs you have Indie Rock at the Razz Club; theres techno upstairs at The Loft and Lolita and for electro and pop fans there’s The Pop Room and Rex Room. Situated in an industrial area close to downtown Barcelona, Razzmatazz starts late (plan to get there around 1am, as it only opens at midnight) and finishes around sunrise.

Opium Mar

Address: Passeig Marítim Barceloneta, 34

Located right on the beach in the Barceloneta neighbourhood, Opium often attracts international DJs and always attracts a large crowd. It’s pretty pricey (although it’s not too difficult to find yourself a cheap guestlist if you do a cheeky internet search or ask around) but the prices are worth it for the atmosphere. Whether you wanna dance or just hang out on the terrace and chat the night away, you’ll find people to do it with here. There’s a smart dresscode and the bouncers can be quite strict, so dress to impress and behave until you’re safely inside.

Bling Bling

Address: Tusset 10, Sarrià-Sant Gervasi

Open Wednesday night through til Saturday night, Bling Bling is still a bit of a newbie on the Barcelona scene. With decadent interiors, decent music and bartenders who know how to mix a drink, BB is an amazing place to celebrate (although again, prices here are more than down your local).

Shôko

Shôko, is another top choice for those looking for an unforgettable night out. Best described as an Asian-Mediterranean fusion restaurant by day and a wild party spot at night, this beach club is a popular spot with locals and visitors alike. It is also known for hosting cool after-parties and themed events with some of the best European DJs gracing the decks throughout the year. Be sure to head there in the summer when you can enjoy your drinks right on the beachfront!

To make the most of Barcelona’s party scene and these cracking hot spots I’d recommend booking into one of the many Barcelona beach apartments available for rent, there is a excellent choice and many have superb easy access to the best nightlife spots in the city. One company which as a massive choice of holiday apartments in Barcelona by the beach is ApartmentBarcelona.com
