What's the best party in Barcelona

Barcelona’s night life

Barcelona is one of the hippest and best party cities of all - they say and it is. In addition to the Montjuic, the Sagrada Familia, the Placa Reial, the Raval district or the Eixample district, Barcelona has a lot more to offer, namely a great nightlife. Party-goers can expect an exciting, varied and always trendy nightlife, which also often has big stars like David Guetta to offer. We are there every summer, including 2017, and want to share our impressions of the nightlife here as a travel report.

Our experience: rather late and then until early

However, if you have never celebrated in Spain, you should be prepared for the fact that the clubs in Catalonia's capital, Barcelonabefore 1am or 2am usually do not even fill at night. So if you want to fully enjoy the exuberant atmosphere in the nightlife, you should adapt to the rhythm of the Spaniards:

  • Eat late for dinner
  • roam the bars late,
  • drink a chupito (schnapps),
  • until finally after midnight most of them show up at the clubs.
  • But the parties don't end until early in the morning. Many hip party locations are right on the beach, on the Ramblas, in the old town of Raval or in the Eixample area.

Another note for you: In Spain you can from 18 years to the discotheques. The same age limit applies to alcohol consumption. On the linked page you will find an overview of the rules / laws and what you should pay attention to when celebrating in Spain.

Our tip: guest lists and flyers

An absolute tip for your summer 2017 in Barcelona is to be put on a guest list. The most famous for Barcelona is the Shaz guest list. You can easily register on the website www.barcelonaparties.com and then party for free from Monday to Sunday. Those who are on the club's guest list do not pay any admission to the best and hippest clubs, such as Opium, Danzatoria, Shoko or Pacha, and can therefore change locations as they wish, without straining their wallet. However, the Shaz guestlist usually has a time limit, which means that you only have free entry up to a certain time. Actually really cool or not? So you save a euro or two in the clubs to be able to go shopping 😉 The nightlife is legendary and you shouldn't miss it in 2017!

Another way to get to Barcelona's discos for free is with them Club flyerwhich are distributed free of charge on the street during the day and sometimes even in front of the clubs at night. Just take it with you! Also, many discos offer before midnight or even Free entry until 1 a.m. at. So it's better to leave a little earlier and save up to € 20 on entry.

The hottest clubs



This is definitely one of the top ten places to party in Barcelona Danzatoria. It is one of the largest and most popular nightclubs in town and is located right on the beach in Barceloneta district on an Avinguda (avenue). On the two levels of the stylish club you can do both: party wildly on the large dance floor and retreat to the sofas with a drink to chill out and chat.
