Nightlife in Barcelona, 7 places with the most interesting things you can do at night in Barcelona and different neighbourhoods.
One thing about Barcelona is that it’s a city that never sleeps. The Spanish people, especially here in Barcelona, eat late, drink late and go out very late. The later you go out the more energy you feel in the city. Don’t be surprised when the nightclubs on the weekends are pretty much empty until at least 01:00 or 02:00 in the morning. You can go clubbing all night until 06:00 o’clock if you want. So yes, if you’re looking for a great night to spend, nightlife in Barcelona has it all.
Barcelona’s nightlife is much in keeping with the city itself, trendy, varied, and sometimes even spectacular. Even if you aren’t really a clubber at heart it’s worth going out to at least one nightclub just to have the experience and see what’s there to offer.
With a metropolis of almost two million people (five if you count the entire metropolitan area), there isn’t one area where you can get a taste of Barcelona’s nightlife, but there is a whole host of lively neighbourhoods to visit.
