Choosing a destination full of cultural opportunities does not mean giving up the best nightlife. Proof of this is the Catalan capital, as the bars and clubs of Barcelona guarantee a unique experience.

We assure you that you will always find the experience you need to live a memorable night. Don’t believe it? In that case, reserve one of our apartments on the beach of Barcelona and come and check it out for yourself.
We suggest five of the best clubs and pubs in Barcelona. Take note!
The mountain of Montjuïc houses a club for the nocturnal: the iconic club La Terrrazza, from which you will also enjoy magnificent views over Barcelona. Its well-deserved prestige is not limited to Barcelona: in fact, the club reached the 44th place in the prestigious Top 100 DJ Mag 2010, a ranking that includes the pubs with the best DJs in the world.
Since then, La Terrrazza has been home to numerous DJs and musicians international renown. Ricardo Villalobos, James Priestley or Larry Heard are just a sample of the artists who have demonstrated their savoir-faire in front of the sound booth.
With an Ibiza atmosphere and with house as a letter of introduction, La Terrrazza is the fiefdom of twenty-somethings and thirty-somethings eager to give it their all until dawn. Although the entrance is not particularly cheap, we assure you that it will be worth paying.
That’s right: keep in mind that La Terrrazza only opens its doors from the end of spring until the last warm days of autumn, since it is an outdoor area.
Harlem Jazz Club
If you like rhythms born in New Orleans, the Harlem Jazz Club will be your fetish place to go out at night in Barcelona. For something that’s considered by many as the best jazz club in Barcelona, thanks in part to its warm and welcoming atmosphere. It offers the combined presence of DJ with live music, which translates into an ideal experience for all types of audiences. Located between the port and the Ramblas, this place also stands out for its excellent quality-price ratio, which makes it a more than recommended option if you want to dance until the body endures.
Marula Café Barcelona
Are you Latin music, soul or funk? In that case, there’s nothing better than a visit to Café Marula, an evocative place halfway between a pub and a nightclub. With a capacity for 400 people, a dance floor and two bars, this establishment located in the street of Escudellers, 49 (Gòtic), has everything to pleasantly surprise you. In addition, there is a perfect balance between tourists and local people, which gives it an unpalatable cosmopolitan air. Throughout the year, Marula Café also attracts well-known DJs nationally and internationally, which is a definitive incentive for a night out.
JazzSí Club Taller de Músics
In a few years, the Raval district has gone from being one of the most degraded areas of the Catalan capital to one of the musts of the Barcelona nightlife. Today, the old Chinatown is one of the most choice options of Barcelona, especially when it comes to going out, so it is worth taking advantage of. This is the scene that accommodates the indispensable JazzSí Club Taller de Músics.
Emerged in 1992, the magic year of Barcelona, it was founded so that the new promises of music had a space in which to be known about the city. A quarter of a century later, the venue is still the perfect alibi for listening to rock, jazz or traditional flamenco pieces. Of course: we recommend you to book a ticket before going on a holiday to Barcelona, since the JazzSí Club usually hangs the poster of COMPLETE AFORO, despite having capacity for a hundred visitors.
True to his spirit, there is no shortage of live concerts … nor the delicious Mediterranean gastronomy. You read correctly: from Monday to Friday you can taste delicious dishes at affordable prices.
Located in the heart of the Catalan capital, BoomBastic is one of the most popular pubs in Barcelona. There reggae and the most authentic Caribbean sounds await you every Friday night (closes the rest of the week).
Its target is of the most varied, although hippies predominate that have not overcome the barrier of thirty. Compared to other clubs in Barcelona, BoomBastic opens relatively late: at 22:00, which should not be an impediment to surrender to the best music. The price of the entrance is pulling to high, although it includes a consumption.
You have it in Las Ramblas, 29.
Discos in Barcelona
We could not close this tour without mentioning other places that you cannot miss. Without going any further, Bling Bling, an elegant space in the street of Tuset, 8; Opium Barcelona, located in Barceloneta and with an incredible terrace and electronic music disco; Shôko Barcelona, an oriental restaurant that works as a cocktail bar, and the legendary bars of Poblenou, where our apartments are located in Barcelona.
