Breathtakingly colourful and with clubs as stylish as its architecture, there’s something here for everyone. It’s the perfect place to people watch all day before dressing up to the nines and dancing the night away. What’s more, the sexiest boys in Spain populate every street corner, so there’s more eye candy than you can handle!
The sultry Mediterranean climate is perfect for catching some rays on the beach before heading into town for a spot of shopping and sightseeing, followed by some cocktails or sangria. No wonder Barcelona’s one of the top Hen weekend destinations!
Nightlife here starts late and ends when you just can’t carry on any more. After some delicious tapas, hit the streets around 10pm to see what the city’s party people are up to in Las Ramblas, where restaurants and bars lead off a boulevard full of street performers. Keep off the beaten track for some of Barcelona’s best-kept secrets and clubs that open till 6am.
The Gothic Quarter also features narrow streets packed full of delightful tapas joints and funky bars, whereas La Ribera has the coolest cocktails. To get away from the tourists, head to L’Eixample – a neighbourhood north of the city centre where you will probably find more natives than in the central areas. There are plenty of great bars and clubs here too, but you have to walk a little more to find them.
Whether or not you’re looking for culture, Gaudi’s La Pedrera is a must-see, and an incredible feat of imagination – completely unmissable.
