Barcelona Nightlife

  1. Las Ramblas is a very tourist filled spot, and for good reason. If you’re new to Barcelona, Las Ramblas is a wonderful area to start out with. Street performers fill the street with wonderful melodies leading into the night. After this, a number of clubs and bars are full to the brim with people.
  2. Boadas is a family run bar containing some of the best cocktails in Barcelona, if not the world! The bar which is located at Carrer dels Tallers has been passed down from generation to generation, and is full of local history.
  3. El Born is an area in which you’ll find similar vibes such as trendy bars, cool nightclubs, and busy streets. But the difference here is that the area is significantly less touristy, with a more elegant and private feel to it. Clubhaus is located here and contains a bar, restaurant, adult play area, and nightclub! Perfect for your weekend activities.

Top Tips

  1. CatSalut is Barcelona’s public health system, and it’s regarded as one of the best in the world! If you’re planning to move to Barcelona and require urgent medical help, it might be a good idea to invest in private health care to avoid the waiting time associated with CatSalut.
  2. In terms of Visas, all European citizens can move to Spain and live there without requiring any further documentation. US, UK, and Canadian citizens can stay in Spain for up to 90 days without a visa, and apply for residency if you plan to stay any longer.
