The area
Address
Neighborhood: Eixample
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.

Visited in April 2018 for the first time. As a group of six guys we where surprisingly welcomed by the bouncers. But our heads fell off with their hushhing gestures until we got informed it was a residential area😁. The soundproof door is great. At first I wasn't impressed with the set up, then as more people arrived, the place seemed to grow! Haha. It turned out to be one one of... If not the best club nights of my life. And I've partied profusely around the whole of Europe and more. It all most felt like a simulation it was so perfect. The people, the sound, the space and even that ladder/staircase to the toilets 😂. Excellent time. Hope to be back there one day soon 🤞

In our quest to make the most of our stay in Barcelona, we thought we'd visit the largest club in Barcelona and the smallest. Located a short walk from the tourist trap, the beauty of this club is how it remains isolated from the mess that is las rambles.

Expensive to get in and expensive to drink. That is a small price to pay for a genuinely good, banging techno club. Met some very friendly locals and danced away all night.

The dance floor is exceptionally small. Not for the claustrophobic. Highly recommend. The locals were astounded we found out about the place. Can only imagine how good the place would be if it was filled to the brim. Mos def worth checking out if you love your techno.

If your looking for a place banging David guetta, I suggest you give me, and the club, a wide berth.

En la entrada ya tenemos un par de matones homófobos. Luego te encuentras con un administrador que aporta su correspondiente dosis de subdesarrollo local (argentino). En fin, un desastre para una ciudad abierta y cosmopolita, hay muchas más opciones más amigables.

Just entering you have two homofobic gangsters, then you meet the administrator (seems to be) with a very basic background that enforces the first image, probably argentinian. It's a shame for an open an cosmopolitan city, avoid this place at any cost, there much more friendly places to enjoy,

It was 6 in the morning and I dont normally drink. I was having a weekend away from kids with my sister. Yes i fell asleep on the toilet but instead of getting a female staff member to wake me a huge doorman (i am not even 5ft tall) busted in trailing me out of cubicle, so hard I passed out. I have bruises around my neck, all over my upper arms , back, under my breast. He pulled my head right back pulling my hair all of which I have witnesses too.
All i wanted was my sister, and two lovely girls had to intervene to stop him getting even more heavy handed. As I was standing up, he grabbed me again, I was saying my sister, my sister- he spoke english.
From the very begining he was cheeky to us going into the club, saying we were English, although I am actually Irish. No matter where i was from, I was not causing trouble or deserved to be beaten and manhandled like I was. I was very scared, confused as what was going on and am still very upset by the nights events. I would not recommend any girl to dare to drink and be vulnerable in this club. The manager was there, and they did not even get a first aider when I passed out, though it was only for a few seconds.

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!

My girlfriend and I paid €10 each to enter and the club was very small and crowded and drinks were quite expensive. However, the music was very good if you like house music and the overall vibe in the club was good. The DJ was in the centre of the club which made it a very intimate, cool venue.

This place was a terrible night club. First we met a grumpy bouncer and had to pay 5 euros each to get in. Inside there was crowded, very expensive for drinks that didn't taste that good and the music was lousy.

I'd never go here again.

This place is a tiny tiny super tiny little hole, in the middle of the Gotico. You have to que for ours, under the vigilant eyes of super unfriendly staff. When you finally get in, the place is barly bigger then a bathroom ( and sure smells like one) were staff will treat you bad. Music is ok, I guess... but so many better places to go in Barcelona. Dont waste your time or money.
