The 10 best bars and clubs in Barcelona

The 10 best bars and clubs in Barcelona

Having a gin-tonic, enjoying a glass of cold beer on a crowded terrace in the city center or a Hawaiian cocktail  in the Kahala... Having a drink in a bar has become a sacred experience in Barcelona's nightlife, and if you have not found your temple, we show you the best nightlife spots in Barcelona.

#1 CDLC (Passeig Marítim de la Barceloneta, 22) Carpe diem, time flies! CDLC is one of the trendiest clubs: restaurant, cocktail club, a disco that blends the waters of the eastern Mediterranean with oriental air ... The coolest of the coolest!

#2 Kahala, Kahiki y Aloha Different Clubs; One of the best in town? We don't know... In the style of the West Coast of the US, these Hawaiians bars offer cocktails and a different place to enjoy a strange mix of exoticism and tranquility.  

#3 Le Pop Cocktail Bar (La Rambla, 111) Inside the hotel Le Meridien, Le Pop is a different place that takes us back to the fifties, sixties and seventies between cocktails and new wave sounds. A stage for a vintage evening.

#4 Sidecar (Plaça Reial, 7) In a list of the best cocktail bars, Sidecar needs a place. Beyond its twenty-year history as bar and club, this mythical space in the Gothic is a mandatory stop.

#5 Jamboree (Plaça Reial, 17) And very near to the Sidecar, you find Jamboree. With live performances, jam sessions and disco after midnight. A place to enjoy music, drinks and the brightest night downtown.

#6 Marula Café (Escudellers, 49) And if you want something different to enjoy some drinks with your friends, one of the best is Marula, in the heart of the Gothic. You know, Mayfield, Coltrane, velvet and cocktails with cherry.  

#7 Velcro Bar (Vallfogona, 10) High level Cocktails, quality environment and good music. A very indie place.

#8 El Dorado Bar Club (Plaça del Sol, 4) Something estrange in Gracia, not far from the Velcro, is El Dorado. A space in La Plaza del Sol, a club with a young atmosphere with commercial music that can be a good alternative; cocktail bar and commercial music.

#9 La fábrica de la Moritz (Ronda de Sant Antoni, 39) Epidor and Moritz as trademark, industrial decor and tapas. The factory has become a meeting point for beer lovers in the center of Barcelona. 

#10 Luz de Gas (Bon Pastor, 6) Mix of Restaurant and club with local history, Luz de Gas offers cocktails, tapas, beer and is a stopping point for many who are going to Sutton Club.
