Barcelona’s nightlife is famous for many reasons, but one thing it’s not known for is progressive music venues. Enter Moog, a club right in the center of town whose mission to remedy the situation has attracted a loyal crowd of electro lovers.

A journey in begins at the grungy bar area, though most patrons bypass the bar and head straight to the small dance floor where the main action takes place. Amidst the darkness and fog of smoke machines, underground DJs from Berlin and the UK play profoundly noncommercial minimal, tech, and electro mixes from their Apple Macs for the jittery alternative crowd.

A narrow staircase to the right of the dance floor leads to a tiny but intriguing red-tiled room where cliquey crowds of “cool kids” segregate themselves from the hoi polloi to dance to obscure Balkan pop and folk/techno remixes.

Clearly styled after the underground clubs of Berlin, and much loved by those who follow every micro-trend in dance, Moog is either the most appealing club in Barcelona or an avant-garde nightmare.

And that’s exactly how its regulars want it.

In the mood for moog?
Hanna H. Aug 15, 2013
This club opened in 1996, a time when underdogs in the music industry became cool . Today, electronic music is bigger than never before and this is the perfect place to experience it, every day of the week. Moog is a lot like a party at a friends house. It´s a pretty small place. Therefor you could leave your friends at the bar and dance without a care in the world. It´s comfy and sexy but not pretentious at all. Part from great electronic music there´s a lot to lay your eyes on. I have never seen so many hot bearded men in my whole life. So if you´r a gal with a mission don´t hesitate to visit Moog. Upstairs there is a little bit quieter area and interesting people is not hard to find. Last time i was there, i had conversations with gay activists, transvestites, locals and Scandinavian hipsters . Outside the club people are making out in the alleys and the well-known smell of cheap beer and sweat makes your teen body stay til closing. This was my first meeting with Barcelona's alternative scene and since it´s not that easy to find, it left me wanting more.
