This club really is tiny, but if you like hard house music it's worth stopping by. Entry was cheap, drinks were about average and the crowd was lively and up for a good time. It's really centrally located and easy to jump in a taxi once you've danced the night away. We went at about 1.30am on a Friday and... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for some good clubs for great deep house music and decided to try this place out. Such a good find! Two awesome djs played that night. As the night went on the place was jamming and full of locals which is a great sign. It is a little small and the toilets were a... More

After trawling some truly awful places on a Sunday night in Barcelona, myself and a group of friends were about to call it a night at around 2am. On the way back to the hotel we were approached by shifty looking bloke in a tiny alley trying to convince us to go to his club. He was hanging around with... More

Do not go to La Macarena, the place is tiny, the music system is horrible but the worse part is the staff! I saw the bouncer pig a fight twice, once even with a girl and the entire street started fighting with the bouncer, it was absolutly horrible! This place is dangerous!!

The sound system here is second to none and the cylindrical shape of the place ensures that music, (techno, minimal, house) is injected straight into your ear drums at mega decibels. Home to a firm following of music lovers and practitioners Macarena, tiny as it is, packs a punch way above its wight and competes with the bigger European venues... More

Even tho it might be empty till 3am (people are still at the bar), it gets full almost every night, so i always end up... More

music is the key in this tinny bunker-looking disco bar. All boundaries of ellectronic music and beyond are spinned in this recycled tablao, that has seen the visits of important personalities, back in the years, such JFK or Lola Flores. Excelent cocktails and good mood every night of the week. Take a look!
