4:20 Cannabis Social Club's arrival onto Barcelona's pot scene has already been met with great success. This out-of-the-way new marijuana bar and club is situated in the heart of the Old City. Yet it's on one of the side streets, so that it's not overpopulated by tourists. 4:20 is perfect for those looking for a relaxing, unassuming evening of smoking, playing board games, snacking and even listening to music.
Although this is a members-only club, visitors and tourists are more than welcome to participate. The catch is that you can only enter if you're accompanied by an existing member. If you don't know anyone who's already on "the list," then try waiting outside the club doors and asking one of the regulars (as they go in and out) if they'll vouch for you. They're used to helping out travelers, since the club is in one of the most touristy parts of the city.

This social club takes great pride in providing quality products. Both Iceolators and BHO are available, with their specialty being the Iceolators (a type of hash). Strains of marijuana including MK Ultra, OG Kush and Yumboldt are used here. The club's pipes and bongs are very clean and in good condition, unlike some other cannabis joints around the city.
4:20 is one of Barcelona's cannabis clubs that offers more variety than most of the others, too, including a great selection of snacks (aka munchies). The club has pot brownies and truffles as well as specialty items, depending on the day. They also serve beer and mixed drinks.
Live DJ sessions take place on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. When the DJs aren't spinning, the club offers excellent magic shows as well as stand-up comedy skits.
If you're looking for a more low-key evening, then check the schedule and go on a night where there's nothing lined up. Grab a seat on one of their comfy couch cushions and check out a board game. They have plenty, including chess, checkers, cards or Risk.
4:20 Cannabis Social Club is a great place to mingle, relax and enjoy a more clandestine night on the town in one of Barcelona's liveliest neighborhoods. The staff is professional and speak a variety of languages. They have a very strong grasp on the cannabis they sell. They're knowledgeable and eager to help, and even if you don't know anything about marijuana, they're happy to teach you and offer a product that best suits what you're looking for.
If you've had enough of the more tranquil vibe and want to switch things up, just two doors down is the funk and blues club Marula Cafe. Also, a few streets over is Macarena, which stays open until 6 a.m. You're also surrounded by great late-night street food, including Frankfurt and Dionisos, as well as several pizza shops just a few doors down.
