BARCELONA: PUBS AND NIGHT LIFE

As well as its beautiful places, Barcelona is a really lively night city, so there are a lot of pubs and night clubs. I would like to recommend you some of them, which are located in the most popular night districts of Barcelona.

Night districts of Barcelona:


In each one of these areas, I would recommend the following pubs and night clubs:


Borne

Without any doubt, the Barcelona area I prefer to have a drink. Always really lively, but maybe less crowded than the Gothic Quarter or the Raval. Interesting pubs in a beautiful environment like Santa Maria del Mar, the Born Boulevard and the surrounding lively streets.

Gothic Quarter, Raval and Plaza Real


Together with el Borne, this area is one of the most crowded districts of Barcelona at night. Along the old city streets there is always a lot of people all night long. In these three areas, but especially in Raval, you must beware of pickpockets and be careful with your belongings.

Along this street of the Raval there are a lot of interesting pubs to have a drink. They are near each other, so you can visit two or three pub the same night.

This area is located in one of the best districts of Barcelona, and prices of drinks are more expensive. Therefore, customers are usually well-off people.

Barceloneta, Port Olímpic y Maremagnum (especially in Summer)

Public Transport: Metro L4 Ciutadella, L3 Drassanes (Maremagnum)

All year long lively Pubs and Restaurants district, but especially in summer. It has the charm of the beach, the promenade and the Olympic Marina.


Vila de Gràcia Quarter

Address: C/Torrent de l'Olla and surroundings
Public Transport: Metro L3 Fontana


The narrow streets and numerous squares of Vila de Gràcia district are a fantastic environment to have a drink at night. The only drawback would be the kind of people you may meet, sometimes drunk, and which it's a bit crowded.


Les Corts District


Address: Carrer Deu i Mata, 10
Public Transport: Metro L3 Les Corts
Website: www.infussionbar.com/infussion_cat/index.php


I really like the oriental atmosphere of this bar, where you can enjoy cocktails or delicious teas.
