Barcelona Bars Overview

Ambar - Bar in Barcelona

The endless array of bars in Barcelona are certainly not as crazy as their club and nightlife counterparts, but the bars still get going late, pack a great drinking punch, and many stay open well into the wee hours of the night.

Ubiquitous to Barcelona’s nightlife are the many cerveserias (bars) that echo with the noisy chatter of customers hustling for seats and service. Many groups start off the night in Las Ramblas as party-hoppers pop in and out of the area’s drinking dens and bars on their way to the evening’s final destination. Different types of bars include coctelerías (cocktail bars), whiskerias (whiskey bars), xampanyerias (sparkling wine bars), and many beer halls. In addition, Barcelona is also known for its great beach bars, upscale cocktail and mixology spots, hookah bars, and wine bars.

More relaxed and less touristy Barcelona bars can be found along the outskirts of the city, where the center’s frenetic pace gives way to a more tranquil way of life, while a vibrant gay scene has found a home in the neighborhood of L'Eixample and hosts a plethora of gay bars and other venues to party in.
