Barcelona was the first Spanish city I’ve ever visited and honestly one of my favorite and most unforgettable, lifetime experiences! Barcelona is a city known for its amazing nightlife. There is a huge variety in bars, pubs and clubs. From a tiny, cozy traditional Spanish bar to a lot of different amazing clubs. The great party in Barcelona are also the erasmus parties in Barcelona (oh yes! The Erasmus community is quite strong over there! Miss you guys!). You can go out every night of the week if you´re willing to. There are special theme nights on almost every night. Like the ´Love Mondays´ at Opium Mar and the ironically named ´Crappy Tuesday´ at Apollo for example. It's all about finding your own cup of tea or something a little stronger! During the summer, Barcelona´s nightlife becomes even more varied - with open air cinemas, live dj sets on rooftops, and paradise beach bars springing up all over the city.
Most of the action is centred around La Rambla, the wide boulevard stretching from Placa de Catalunya to the Port Vell. There are usually street entertainers wowing the crowds - mime artists, clowns, acrobats, flamenco dancers etc. Wandering the streets adjacent to La Rambla - the Gothic district (Barrí Gotic), Raval and Born will reveal many fun bars, often aimed at students and budget travelers. Let’s see a few suggestions that would definitely make your night out unforgettable! ALSO; in case you're there during summer, do not forget to check Barcelona's music festivals, they're awesome!
