Barcelona isn’t exactly known for its laid-back partying – in fact, going out in the city means starting your night incredibly late and dancing to till the sun comes up. Of course, not everyone can handle the all-night escapades, and as a result, there are a great number of lounges in Barcelona that cater to all types and budgets who are looking for a little more relaxed party setting.
Of course Barcelona lounges can be found all over town, but for some of the swankiest cocktail lounges and trendy hotspots, head to Port Olimpic and Barceloneta where the city’s elite go to eat, drink, and party all night. Other great areas for lounging the night away include Las Ramblas and El Raval.
The lounges in Barcelona can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. They make for a great alternative from the booming nightlife that starts well after midnight, they’re perfect spots to bring a date, they’re great for hanging out with friends in a relaxed setting, or they’re the perfect primer for the clubs later on.
