With all the sights of Barcelona and the stress of getting around the city, you might want a bit of nightlife.



Well, well ... a great night's rest.

So, let's make sure to narrow down the myriad nightlife options to one of the mainstays of partying in Barcelona.

This is the Apollo Room.


Sala Apolo Barcelona

First of all, with Razzmatazz this can only be described as half of Barcelona's 'twin towers' - these clubs gigantic et legendary entertained more tourists than everyone else.


The Sala Apolo, or simply "Apolo" to the locals, looks like a ancient theater simply because it is. In 1943, some quite wonderful people decided to set up a ballroom, elegant as it is, and the tradition continues to this day.

But with louder music.

If you are looking at yourself let go and have fun unpretentious, it's for you. So drink the last 200ml of dry rum, put on your Ghostbusters t-shirts and get started! You will be out until 6 am



Club Apolo de Barcelona program

Club Apolo is open Monday through Sunday from midnight to 5:00 a.m. or 6:00 a.m., but believe me when I tell you that the party won't start until 2:00 a.m.

Get there around 1:30 am to make sure you don't queue.



In the club you will find the main room (“Sala Apolo”), while on the ground floor you will find a smaller room (“La [2]”).

Events and concerts at Sala Apolo

True to its origins, the Apolo is also one of the best concert halls in Barcelona, ​​in fact it is the most frequented concert hall in all of Spain.

Be sure to check the Sala Apolo concert schedules; you can find your favorite artist there.

Regrettably, your ticket to the concert does not include the club ticket.

Dress code at Sala Apolo 

Simply put, there is no dress code at the Apollo. Here you come as you are, but I advise you not to overdo it.

Examples of problems that can affect gorillas include beachwear such as flip flops, sports bathing suits, or even overly classic clothing.

Put on some decent shorts or jeans, a shirt, and you're done.

Unpleasant monday

If you're crazy enough to go out at night on Monday, you can pick the craziest spot. The self proclaimed the biggest rock and roll party in Europe aimed at students and tourists.

So forget about Tuesday morning and let the DJs Mad Max et Soren immerse yourself in the frenzy.

Il n'est pas rare d'entendre Prodigy, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ramones, Arctic Monkeys, Daft Punk, Led Zeppelin, Depeche Mode, Metric, Nirvana, Madness, New Order, etc.





Tickets: € 15,00 + reservation fee (one drink included) or € 16,00 on the spot.

VIP ticket: € 250,00 + booking fees (one bottle + ticket for 5 people).

Pre-Apollo

It wouldn't be a night out in a nightclub without first having a drink in one of the best bars in Barcelona, ​​and there are some great bars near the Apolo where you can warm up for little money.

First of all, it would not hurt to take a little tour of the famous Blas Street, where you will find at least half a dozen bars serving pintxos and tapas for € 1,00 in addition to bottles of beer at € 1,00.

I suggest La Tasqueta de Blai for its creative and delicious cuisine and youthful vibe.

The tapas institution Can Eusebio and its iconic wooden tables, cheap tapas and beer are so cheap that you will want to cancel your return ticket.

Locals also prepare themselves in the eclectic Raval neighborhood and its many banché bars.
