3 Places to go out in Barcelona

Barcelona has it all from beaches, to culture, to nightlife. Spend your days walking around Park Güell, visiting the Boqueria Market, and of course, the Sagrada Familia. But once night falls, make sure to stop by Opium, Razzmatazz and, Apolo.

 

Opium Barcelona

This club, located on the Barceloneta beach, attracts amazing DJs from Avicii, to David Guetta, to Bob Sinclair. It’s huge, boasting several rooms and a large terrace which is used as a restaurant/bar during the day. Despite its size, it gets packed pretty quickly, with little space on the main dance floor, but eclectic energy nonetheless. If you get tired of dancing, you can kick off your shoes and take a walk on the beach. It’s beautiful if you stay till sun rise. You might have to fight at the bar to get a drink, but overall you’re guaranteed an amazing night.

Razzmatazz

Leave your stilettos at home and throw on some shorts and converse for this warehouse style club. It feels more like a concert or a rave – expect a rowdier type of night, with a rowdier type of crowd. With no tables or VIP areas, people are free to roam through the five different rooms, each playing their own music. You’re probably going to get lost, so keep your phone with you. The atmosphere is incredible, so make sure to pregame so you don’t waste your time pushing past people to get to the bar. This club often gets packed with sweaty bodies before you know it, but you can take a break in the outside area equipped with bleachers. You will definitely need a shower when you get home, but it will have been worth it.

Apolo

This club, known for its great music, hosts live bands till midnight before the DJs take over. Try to get there relatively early to avoid lines and higher entry fees. It’s open every night from ‘Nasty Mondays’, ‘Crappy Tuesdays’, ‘Canibal Wednesdays’, ‘Cupcake Thursdays’, all the way to the ‘Nitsa’ parties on Fridays and Saturdays. ‘Nasty Mondays’ are the best, with alternative/rock music, but you can opt for a weekend night if you prefer electronic!
