Went here for dinner and drinks on Wednesday 23rd April - the staff are the worst I have ever experienced, took an hour to get our first drinks after being asked 3 times would we like to see the menu and asking if we could have drinks first. Food took nearly another hour and decided not to wait for my second drink when 45 minutes after ordering it had still not turned up.

Opium is just one of those places which loses a lot of money because the bouncer just doesn't feel like letting you in. They keep on randomly changing the entrance policies depending on the days you go, with very rude bouncers which treat you literally like crap. The music is mostly very commercial and mainstream, so if this is what you like you can try talking to the bouncers to get in. Basically, don't waste your time trying to get in a place where the door policy makes it look so special but which is in truth very disappointing... Way better clubs can be found in Barcelona.

Bad, bad and bad. Don't go there. I wore a tan and they said that was too much and I wasn't alowed to wear that, so they made me wore a jacket with 40 grades, But in the meantime there were the dancers half naked... speechless.

me and my friends came to opium on a stag do. there were resident DJ's on so not a special night. tickets were 20euros but i expect to pay that in a city like Barcelona.

the lighting and smoke effects etc are ok but the crowd makes the atmosphere. being able to use the lounge and access the beach is cool.

when we first arrived i was worried as a lot of chart music was being played. but as the night went on the music got much better

the drinks are expensive but this is standard for clubs in nice cities. i would definitely come here again.

We finally decided to venture in to Opium during our last trip after always thinking it looked a bit pretentious....it certainly didn't disappoint.

We have never encountered security staff that were as rude as the ones manning Opium. As we were tourists, they asked us to produce our IDs and proceeded to make racist remarks under their breath before laughing it off like it was one big joke.

Given that some in our party had really been looking forward to sampling the Opium, we decided to proceed despite my reservations about staying any longer.

We had arrived at the venue around 1am (pretty early for this venue) and the place was nowhere near full. Despite this, it still took an age to get served by staff who were mainly surly, moody or just downright unpleasant.

The drinks were expensive but to be expected at a venue like this so no surprises there.

Despite all of the above, the location is stunning and the venue itself is excellent with really cool enclaves inside. In fact, it is deceptively spacious!

The dance/trance music was cool and we generally had a good time amongst ourselves having a blast on the dance floor.

I suppose I could have given this place a 3* rating but the staff really bring the place down.

The staff next door at Shoko are far better.
