Barcelona is synonymous with legendary nightlife. This lively metropolis, home to almost two million, is bursting at the seams with trendy neighbourhoods, boasting their own bars and clubs. The day is taken over by the rustic restaurants and tapas joints, making way for the underground and thriving scene this city is renowned for. Our guide will take you on a whirlwind tour of the top spots, with complimentary shots to start the celebrations.
The best areas include the likes of La Rambla, the Gothic Quarter and Port Olympic. The former is a natural starting point for tourists, close to the Old Town and surrounded by the city's most iconic attractions. The Gothic Quarter is the mysterious and darker younger brother, with secret bars behind unassuming front doors – it's a labyrinth of true Spain. Port Olympic is flashy, sassy and decadent, set by the crystal blue waves. This is the home of Barcelona's mega clubs – Pacha, Opium and the like - as well as A-list bars.
