La Terrazza – bringing the Balearics to Barcelona
For the sixteen years since its inauguration as an Atmospherical Fun Club, La Terrazza has been consistently hailed as Barcelona’s answer to the sort of free-spirited, alfresco merriment usually reserved for the naughtiest sibling of those Balearic islands, Ibiza.
Most of the greatest treasures in Barcelona tend to be tucked away, hidden from sight and/or complicated to reach. La Terrazza is curiously located in the Poble Español (Spanish Village), and the walk from the entrance to the club will see you pass through an architect’s vision of what Spain might look like in the (very real) scenario that a family from every state in the country suddenly upped sticks one day and went to live in exactly the same place. Poble Español comes complete with typical Spanish bars, although those at Terrazza have been known to lure you away with a 50% discount on drinks if you arrive at the club within 10 minutes.
This year Terrazza boasts a new sound system, and although sound restrictions apply here (due to its privileged position on the Montjüic hill), is impossible to deny the very special ambience of being surrounded by nature, enjoying the fresh summer air as you dance your way into the night. The music ranges from generic house through to more obscure electro beats, and the fact that the club is only open during the summer season each year means that it is certainly a novel experience. Each year the grand finale – the annual closing party – is held in early October as temperatures fall; check website for details.
There is a free bus service that runs from Plaça Catalunya between 00.00 and 03.00 on condition that you have a pre-paid on2one ticket (available from the website). The bus also returns between 05.00 and 07.00, otherwise expect to pay between 15€ and 25€ for a one-way taxi.
