Nightlife & Bars in Barcelona?


Will be in Barcelona for 4 days in May, from Wednesday - Sunday. Seems to be so many options for bars & nightlife -- and would love some suggestions!

We are 3 girls in our early 30s and are looking for cool, trendy lounges & bars -- not interested in loud, high-energy dance clubs.

Are certain bars better on certain nights? We will be there for prime 'going-out' nights of Thurs / Fri / Sat...

So far, I have on my short list:


Tapas-bar crawl in el Born

beach bar: Mellow Lounge or Opium Mar ?

rooftop bars: Eclipse Bar @ W Hotel or Angels & Demons

El Xampanyet

Would love to hear feedback on this one as well! We're a couple going in our early 30's so looking for some good night life that's not filled with 18 year olds :)

I am also in my early 30s, and just returned from Barelona a few days ago. I am from Chicago, and was hardly impressed with the nightlife. We acutally went to Opium Mar and thought it was a total disaster. I think you would be better going to Carpe Diem which is right next door and less trashy. Eclipse Bar was also a disaster, but a disaster with a beautiful view. Even the bathrooms had a view. My biggest complaint was the music. I can only listen to so much Eurotrash before my eardrums start to bleed.
