Barcelona's Hippest, Trendiest and Liveliest Clubs for Dancing the Night Away

Not only is Barcelona well equipped with rustic tapas joints, outdoor patios where wine and sangria are cheaper than water and a variety of trendy, hipster bars, but the city runs rampant with some of the best night clubs in Spain. Attracting famous DJ's during renowned festivals such as Sonar and Primavera Sound amongst others, if you're ever in the mood for lights, noise and a lot of dancing, Barcelona has plenty of options.


Whether you feel like staying in Ciutat Vella (Old City) and exploring the many clubs in Plaza Reial, or want to dance along the beach, or see gorgeous panoramic views atop Montjuic, Barcelona will deliver a night that you'll never forget.


If you feel like partying until the sun comes up and want to step out into daylight along the Mediterranean, check out Cat Walk, Shoko and CDLC which are all situated along the boardwalk. If you'd prefer an even better view from 36 floors up, the W Hotel's Eclipse bar and club is a swanky place to drink innovative cocktails with the VIP's and elite clientele.


But if you'd rather experience a night on the town like the locals do, make your way to the Raval where the clubs might be small, but they know how to rage.
