Barcelona offers different party options catering to very different tastes. There are plenty of party areas and neighbourhoods, so it can get a bit overwhelming. It helps to ask the staff of your hostel about the type of party you are looking for, and they will be able to direct you to the area where you should go. Neighbours like Raval, Born, Gràcia, Eixample, Port Olímpic, Sant Gervasi – Santaló and Poblenou are filled with cafes, bars, pubs and nightclubs.

Born is considered the perfect place for all the cool people searching for restaurants, trendy clubs and cocktail bars. Even though the ambiance is truly sophisticated, it can be quite warming and welcoming. If you’re a trend hunter, you’ll be delighted to see the eclectic mixture of people: bohemians, creatures of the nights, locals coming back from work, international people… Born will always find a way to surprise you, forcing you to discover what lies beneath its medieval structure.

Barrio de Gràcia and its party

Once you began strolling through the streets of Gràcia, you’ll come across intimate and charming bars that turn the neighbourhood’s nightlife into a box full of surprises. You need just a quick wander through Gràcia’s streets to absorb that bohemian vibe the people of Barcelona adore so much. During summer, especially on August, the biggest event in Gràcia takes place, turning the district in the epicentre of the city.

Eixample – aka Gaixample, where the party is full of harmony and tolerance

The neighbourhood of Eixample, delimited by Balmes St., Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes St., Urgell St. and Aragó St., you will find most of the bars frequented by the LGBT community; that’s the main reason it is commonly known as Gaixample. This area is full of restaurants, entertainment, bars and a considerable number of clubs where freedom, harmony and tolerance are the true protagonists of the party.

The Area of Port Olímpic

The Mediterranean becomes the main attraction of one of the busiest nightlife areas in the city. The two skyscrapers delimit the entrance to a universe of bars, restaurants, clubs and even a casino. The sophisticated but cheerful atmosphere by the sea helps you enjoy the night with intensity.

Sant Gervasi – Santaló

In the upper area of Barcelona, around the axis marked by Santaló St. and Marià Cubí St., you find a zone full of bars and clubs. It is frequented by the university community of the city and also by older people looking for a chic atmosphere to relax and enjoy.


On the weekends, Indie rock meets mainstream pop in the area of Poblenou. Giant clubs and wide and spacious pubs, product of the industrial past of the district, provide a wide offer of alternative rock music that especially delight the youngest.

Dress codes & age restrictions

The atmosphere in Barcelona is pretty laid-back and bohemian, with a huge international and multicultural influence. The dress code is very relaxed, and you can get in many places dressed up casual, or even a bit provocative. However, there is a big no-go, and it is shorts and flip-flops outside of the beach area. Sneakers and running shoes are ok in some pubs and bars, but not in most clubs. As you never know where the night will lead you, you should try to wear dark shoes. To be safe, you should ask the staff of the hostel about the particular area or clubs you are heading to. They will be able to give you the best advice to make sure you get in the clubs you want to go.
