Barcelona is a city steeped in history and its long-running nightlife venues are no exception.

The city of Barcelona sleeps, but it definitely doesn’t do it at night (that’s what siestas are for). 😉

Barcelona is a city where you can find underground clubs, terraces and rooftops and even incredible bars, but it is undoubtedly its clubs and discotheques that set the pace of the night.

Each venue has unique characteristics that are worth discovering for yourself. But our top team of nightclub researchers have tested the waters and put together a list of the best night clubs in Barcelona for your careful consideration. Enjoy!

Pacha Barcelona – World-famous club experience

Why you should go: The world-famous Pacha brand brings amazing music and an authentic atmosphere from Ibiza to Barcelona’s Port Olímpic. This club is the jewel among the nightclubs of the port and it is open seven days a week!

Atmosphere: Ibiza style clubbing in the purest form. Visitors are greeted by a sleek white interior and a stunning view over the beach. Located near Barceloneta Beach, the club attracts an international crowd with both smart and casual vibes. 

Music:  Pacha Barcelona uses its worldwide brand notoriety to attract the most excellent national and international DJs of the current music scene to the city. To give you an idea, the club has recently welcomed artists such as Paco Osuna, Loco Dice and Dom Dolla.

The urban vibe is also present in Pacha’s agenda, with concepts such as FLIRT, PEGAO or MOULALAGA adding a tempting touch to the club’s weekday and Saturday nights. 

Recommendations: Pacha transforms every Sunday into the most outstanding meeting point for clubbing lovers with Sight. The party encourages you to end your week with the best electronic music, featuring the most in-demand names: Deborah de Luca, Miss Monique and Hugel are some of the stars of the line-ups

Prices: Its first ticket releases are available for 10€ with a drink and can go up to 15€. Pacha also has a wide range of VIP services that can be chosen by the type of bottle.

INPUT High Fidelity Dance Club – the best sound-system in Barcelona

Why you should go: INPUT is in the top 3 best places in the city to experience electronic music. Its giant Funktion One sound system is worthy of any first-level festival, and also its large LED screen doesn’t leave anyone indifferent.

Atmosphere: INPUT is usually frequented by ravers who want to dance and let their imaginations run wild. From young people in their twenties to people in their thirties, everyone at INPUT is driven by a single passion: listening to electronic music in the best possible way.

Music: The fact that different promoters organise the program of the venue means that we can enjoy everything from techno options such as Ben Sims, Ben Klock or SNTS to melodic artists such as Worakls, Konstantin Sibold or Edu Imbernon, without forgetting the groove of Jamie Jones, Hot Since 82 or Los Suruba.

In addition, from time to time INPUT ventures to change its underground vibes for the summer ones of the beach at GO Beach Club, a venue where they hold events facing Barcelona’s Port Forum. 

Recommendations: Don’t take too long to get to the Poble Espanyol, because INPUT doesn’t have a capacity much higher than 1,000 people and, when the headliner is important, the sold-out is guaranteed.

Prices:  Early-birds at INPUT are around €10, but the normal price is between €15 and €20, and can go up to €25 on special occasions.  The ticket allows access until 4.00am.

Sala Apolo – The eclectic club par excellence

Why you should go: It’s one of the nightclubs with more history and better line-ups in Barcelona. Its more than 75 years of experience are proof of this. 

It’s open from Monday to Sunday and hosts some of the city’s most famous parties and concerts. At Apolo, even radio and TV programs have been held – its musical and artistic variety is truly respectable!

Atmosphere: Apolo breathes vanguardism. People work on their looks to move away from the mundane and break down fashion barriers as well. Be yourself.  Dress the way you feel. Comfort and dancing are priorities!

Music: Every party has its own musical style. Mondays feature Honey Bunny and Bass Bunny with pop and international hits. On Wednesdays, the famous Bresh! visits Barcelona along with the urban sounds of Caníbal. On Thursdays, Milkshake offers a multicolored and vintage session to warm up the crowd for the grand arrival of Nitsa. 

The big star of Fridays and Saturdays at Apolo brings to Barcelona one of the most outstanding and exclusive electronic programming in Spain: Klangkuenstler, Daria Kolosova, Anfisa Letyago and many more. Finally, Ley DJ lands on Sundays with its Churros con Chocolate concept, described by themselves as “your winter festival”.

Recommendations: Pay attention to the day of the week when you visit Apolo, as it’s not the same to lose your voice singing hits, to get your groove on with afrobeat and dancehall, or burn your shoes with the most underground techno. Go to the party that convinces you the most!

Prices: The price varies depending on the party or concert and can range from 18€ to 25€, always with 1 drink included.

Opium Barcelona – The international beach club

Why you should go: Razzmatazz is a unique experience. It’s located in Barcelona’s industrial urban district of Poblenou and was established in the year 2000. It was the first club in Spain to schedule five different spaces.

Atmosphere: Urban, underground, industrial. 

Music: All flavours are available. Razzclub is the indie side of the venue, Lolita is the home of genres such as house, trap and dubstep, Popbar, as its name suggests, is the place for pop, Rexroom is an experimental hybrid and, finally, we reach the top with The Loft. This last, spacious room is dedicated to the most avant-garde and powerful sounds of the electronic scene.

Together, all these rooms have hosted legends such as Richie Hawtin, Paul Kalkbrenner, Coldplay, Skrillex and Kanye West.

Recommendations: Don’t be surprised if you lose all your friends within the labyrinth of rooms. It’s easy to get lost inside the many rooms, so make sure you keep some phone battery for when you inevitably get separated from your gang.

Why you should go: Can you believe a nightclub has a legal capacity of 84 people? Yes, it is a micro-club. There are several in Barcelona, but this is the best of them all: Funktion One sound and open seven days a week.

Atmosphere: Few places breathe so much passion for electronic music. There, your appearance is the least of all. In Macarena, the only thing that matters is the passion for select and alternative electronic music in an intimate and personal atmosphere.

Music: Techno, electro, EBM, leftfield house, nu disco. What is more difficult to find in Macarena is the massive big-room techno and the groovy tech-house that succeeds in big venues. Macarena looks for small proposals for demanding listeners.

Moog – a techno dream

Image: © Moog

Why you should go: The air you breathe at Мoog is underground. Since its opening, there has only been one night in which it hasn’t opened its doors (due to the mourning for the victims of the terrorist attack). With that, we’re saying everything.

Atmosphere: Moog is the heart of electronic music in Barcelona. It offers you a much more intimate atmosphere than other great venues such as Razzmatazz or Apolo. The club opened almost 20 years ago in the Old Town of Barcelona, but teleports the techno lover to a local rave in Berlin. The concept is the same: quality underground electronic music for real experts in techno.

Music: Techno. Mainly, industrial techno music at high revolutions and away from the most mainstream spotlights. Oh! And every day. From Monday to Sunday. No exception.

Recommendations: Finding space for you and your group of friends is a luxury at Moog, as the club is one of the smallest in the city. But, at least it’s cosy.

Prices: Tickets usually vary from 7€ on weekdays and Sundays, and 12€ from Friday to Saturday.

CityHall – history transformed into electronic music
