Night-life in Barcelona offers fantastic venues where you can have a drink, see beautiful people, dance and even listen to music. There are many life-music gigs in many of them and others have big concerts that attract large audiences.
We would suggest you to try some of the following venues, where you will be able to enjoy the music and the night-life in Barcelona.
From the highest areas to those near the sea, the best venues are those with bands or singers offering life gigs or just a simple song to make your evening more enjoyable. In Avenida Diagonal, you will find the Dublin bar, an old Irish pub that offers life music some evenings during the week.
In the same avenue you will also find Luz de Gas, that is nowadays the place to be seen. In it they celebrate events and gigs by national and international bands. After the performance the dance floor is free if you want to dance until late, even if it is a bit of a posh bar.
The bar Bikini is similar. Situated in the area of Les Corts it combines perfectly the disco style with varied music and music events with concert cycles. These venues are not really very large, so it makes for a more personal atmosphere and the audience feels closer to the singer.
However, drinks in these bars tend to be on the expensive side, because they go to subsidise the show you are enjoying in them.
In the very centre of Barcelona, we already have our hotel, the Caledonian Hotel, just next to where all the night life is in the city.
