Sala Apolo Night Club in Barcelona

If you consider yourself young, brave and somewhat a raver, Sala Apolo is a nightclub you need to head to. If you haven’t already seen the ads for their Nasty Mondays, you’ve certainly missed out (provocative beyond belief). Each night has a themed party with other nights including, Crappy Tuesdays, whilst Wednesday is Mundo Caníbal with reggae. There is certainly something for all and it is known to be energetic, eclectic and a little crazy.

Sundays just got fun! Zero Club Barcelona

If you follow us on Facebook, you will see that we quite like our Sundays. They consist of lazing around with a book in bed, going for brunch in one of many fabulous places in the city and long strolls in the winter sun. But if you really want to make the most of your weekend you can do so at Zero Club, which had their inauguration just last week.

Elephanta Bar – where gin and tonic meets tea

Elephanta is also the ideal place to stop for a cup of tea or infusion with a wide selection, from herbs, flowers and fruits, citrus, spice, nutmeg, amongst other flavors, which are accompanied with delicious homemade cakes. By day expect good music and by night they hold exhibitions and their project of short films and documentaries. It isn’t that innocent, as the bar is more famously known for serving more than 40 types of gin from around the world.

Get reacquainted with your arty self at Bar Pastís

We aren’t going to pretend, this unpretentious bar is situated in the unearthed Raval. Be prepared to bat an eyelid or two as it is rather underground and surrounded by more than just the locals. The bar is like a relic in itself, established in 1947 and doesn’t seem like much has changed as the decor exudes the prior years – mixed vintage photos, dolls, red curtains.

Bar Tales – The kitsch Sor Rita

Sor Rita is a colorful and incredibly tacky bar that makes kitsch look meek and shy. Honestly, if you are easily offended this place might not be the one for you. The bar itself displays elements of an altar juxtaposed with a stripper’s dressing room – think leopard and zebra prints strung across the wall and religious icons along with Hollywood stars. The bar takes inspiration from films such as Dark Habits and All About My Mother, with founders Cecilia and José going full wham!

Dry Martini…The connoisseur’s cocktail bar

The ritual of ambience, preparation and presentation of a cocktail is arguably as important as its content. At Dry Martini, you can expect a generous serving of each of these elements.

Beefeater In-Edit Music Documentary Festival

Barcelona’s Beefeater In-Edit Festival of music documentaries celebrates its 10th edition and runs from today until 4th November. With 26 select films focusing on a variety of genres we say now is the time to take advantage and go to the festival if you haven’t been before. The life of pre-Civil War Catalan soprano Conxita Badia Millàs, life with The Beastie Boys and the world of techno are just some of the subjects to be featured.

After-work drinks at Mat Bar Barcelona

When we heard that a new “straight-friendly” bar was opening in Gayxample by none other than the super duo behind the successful cafe Federal and candy store Papabubble, we had to check it out. Specifically targeted as an after-work bar, we were keen to see what all the fuss was about, particularly after it’s busy inauguration. Upon entry, you know you are entering a different world with the creative retro sports theme used throughout the space – with the ping pong rackets decorating the walls and skipping ropes draped opposite the bar.
