Nightlife in Barcelona

Sip sparkling cava or rich Rioja among the wine casks in the Barrí Gòtic district's atmospheric bodegas (wine cellars), or cooling beer in beach-front chiringuitos huts. Or mingle with bohemian types in the Born district's chic hole-in-the-wall bars. For a taste of Catalan culture, there's a plenty of choice around Plaça Catalunya square with Palau de la Música Catalana, City Hall nightclub and Bel-Luna Jazz Club all nearby. Pace yourself for late nights; clubs get going around 2am when most bars start to close.
