Shopping inside is nice in this old bull fighting arena, but there is an option to go see 360 views and walk the top of the arena for just 1 euro. Do it!! Some gorgeous views of the entire city of Barcelona!

We paid 1euro to take the scenic elevator but we later found out that you can actually go up to the rooftop using the normal escalators inside and you can just use the scenic elevators on your way down for free.

Great club in Barcelona and worth ending your night here but entry fee/free drink is a bit confusing as the door staff dont speak great English and stamp you and hand you cards which dont say anything. The music is great, club is very large so enough room to move. Drinks are realistic prices

And nice shopping center. Worth a visit! Cool to see how it was built (there's an exposition there telling this story - it used to be an abandoned bull fighting arena). Good place to eat without spending too much (level -1 of the building). I recommend to go after walking at montjuic, so you can relax and have a nice... More

You can choose between arena madre, classic, VIP, dandy... Can change from a room to another, just walk between buildings not far one to each other, they stamp your arm. Different styles of music and poeple. VIP you'll usually find younger poeple. Begins to be crowded after 2am, dont come too early. Drink offered with entrance.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
