Party Earth maumau Review

The Scene

Maumau in Barcelona’s Poble Sec is a big lounge catering to an artsy crowd. Check out Barcelona’s alternative side with Party Earth.

Just a quick walk south of Barcelona’s famed alternative concert hall, Sala Apolo, the funky factory-turned-lounge maumau attracts a diverse set of creative-minded denizens thanks to its always comfortable vibe.

Seeing as the place is run by the same guys behind maumau underground – an online guide to the city’s top alternative happenings – it’s little surprise that the venue is a favorite of artists, cool cat students, and a variety of music fans, but it also serves as an eclectic haunt for anyone just looking to kick back with a few cocktails.

The expansive interior features an assortment of low white couches along one side of the open room, separated from clusters of banquettes and simple wood tables and benches by thick columns that extend up to the high ceiling.

A small bar in one corner serves a tidy selection of specialty gins and vodkas, as well as traditional classics and – this being Spain – a mojito or two, which regulars often enjoy pre- or post-Apolo concert or during one of the short film screenings that are sometimes projected onto one wall.

The cavernous but cozy maumau is usually a destination for conversation, perfect for patrons who want to critique the rotating art on the walls, dish over the latest music, or chat up the staff about the city’s next great underground show.
