Best Nightlife spots in Barcelona

Barcelona is a very vibrant city. Whether you’d like to sip champagne at the opera, see a late night movie by the pool in the open air or dance all night on the beach, this city is a place that offers activities for everyone. The greatest shared passion (besides soccer) is music; Montserrat Caballé and José Carreras are Catalonians and an evening in the lush Gran Teatre del Liceu or the famous Palau the la Música Catalana is an unforgettable experience. Modern dance and theatre flourish and the trendy clubs and bars attract Europe’s biggest DJ’s and bands.

Everyone who visits Barcelona will soon notice that it’s a city that never sleeps: Barcelonians eat, drink and sleep late. While most of us are used to going out around 12 am, local people from Barcelona don’t go out until 2 am. The restaurants and cafes are crowded until closing time and locals move towards the clubs afterwards.
