More about FC Barcelona

Club info

Origins

FC Barcelona was founded in 29 November 1899 by the Swiss Hans Kamper. As a 22-year-old he was actually on his way to Africa where his plan was to help his uncle set up a trading company in sugar. However, he ended up staying in Barcelona. He loved football and started, together with some English and Swiss supporters, the “Barcelona Football Club” following his advert in the sports magazine Los Deportes.

Kamper, who later changed his name to Joan Gamper, chose blue and purple as the club colours and appointed himself as the first captain of the team. He played 48 games between 1899 and 1903, in which he scored more than 100 goals. Thereafter he was president for many years and the driving force behind the continued growth and development of the club. He was less fortunate in his private life. Plagued by personal and financial problems, he committed suicide on July 30, 1930. As a tribute to the founder of the club, FC Barcelona still plays the annual opening game of the season for the Joan Gamper Trophy.

More Than Football, More Than a Club
FC Barcelona is best known for the quality of its football, but Barça is more than just a football club. FC Barcelona is an all-sport club with professional, international top teams in basketball, handball, futsal (5-a-side) and field roller hockey. These are all very popular sports in Spain. Furthermore, the club still has sections for amateur wheelchair basketball, athletics, rugby, baseball, volleyball, hockey, ice hockey and figure skating.

Besides the Nou Camp stadium, the club posses the adjacent Miniestadi, a stadium with a capacity of 15,000 spectators, where Barça B, Barça C, and sometimes the Barça youth team play their games. The basketball, handball and indoor football teams play their games in their own stadium, the Palau Blaugrana, which is located near the Nou Camp and has a capacity of over 7,000 spectators. Besides this, there is also a skating track on the Barça complex.

The slogan ‘més que un club’ - more than a club - indicates that it goes further than being just a sports club. The slogan shows that FC Barcelona stands as a deeply rooted symbol of Catalan independence and supports socio-political themes such as education, art and culture. FC Barcelona is, both in Catalonia and abroad, very active in social and humanitarian development.

The Logo Explained
The logo of FC Barcelona as we know it today was designed by Carles Coma Mala in 1910. He was a player for the club between 1903 and 1912, and also a medical student and gifted artist. He won a competition organized by the club to design a new club logo.

Barcelona Logo
The logo was designed by Carles Comamala.

Since then, the ‘escudo’ has often been redesigned (most recently in 2002), but its core has not changed. The shape is still that of an "olla", a traditional Catalan food pot. The red cross on the white space on the upper left section is the Cross of Saint Jordi, the patron saint of Catalonia.

The section with the red-yellow strokes symbolizes the ‘senyera’, the traditional flag of Barcelona and Catalonia. The letters F.C.B. below are, of course, the initials of the club. The football in the lower section stands for the main sport in Barcelona, set on a background of blue and purple, the team colors.

Stadium Tour & Museum
The Stadium Tour is called the “Nou Camp Experience” by the club, and they are right as it includes a visit to the Barça Museum which is quite an experience. The museum is the most visited museum in the country! From the players’ dressing rooms to the press room, the VIP box, the thrilling player tunnel and the pitch, no part of the behind-the-scenes space remains a secret.

The museum is not just a collection of great prizes, with its 111-year history on display, but there are also several notable personal relics of players and coaches who were once active for the club. Tickets for the stadium and museum tour can easily be added online when booking your trip to FC Barcelona football on our website.

What Does “Cule” Mean?
Barça fans in Spain are generally referred to as “Cules”. It literally means “ass” or “butt”. This originates far back in the long history of the club. Between 1909 and 1922, FC Barcelona played its home matches in the L'Escopidora stadium.

Supporters who could not afford the ticket would often climb and sit on the walls that surrounded the pitch, to make sure they could see the game. Only their backsides were visible to passers-by outside the stadium, who gave them the nickname “Cules”.

UNICEF to Back Shirt
The year 2006 marked the end of a wonderful 107-year-old tradition at FC Barcelona. For the first time in the history of the club there was a sponsor shown on the classic blue-purple shirt. However, it was not the name of a commercial brand, like so many other clubs in the world, but the logo of UNICEF, the United Nations children's rights organization.

fc_barcelona_home_shirts
The previous home shirt.

And where other clubs receive millions of dollars from their shirt sponsor, Barça donated a half million euros every year to UNICEF projects for children around the world. Through the links with UNICEF, which includes Lionel Messi being a UNICEF Ambassador, the club makes a positive contribution to the plight of children growing up in difficult circumstances such as hunger, poverty, disease or war.

"Through sports, children and adults across the globe can be connected and important messages can be conveyed," says Jan Bouke Wijbrandi, a Director of UNICEF. UNICEF has now made room for an additional deal with the Qatar Foundation. With that company, the club recently signed a five year sponsorship contract, worth an estimated thirty million euros per year.

Nou Camp
The Nou Camp - literally meaning "new field" - was opened on September 24, 1957 with a match between FC Barcelona and Legia Warsaw (4-2). The stadium has a capacity of 99,354 spectators and is 48 metres high; the field has a dimension of 105 x 68 metres. The Museum of FC Barcelona and the shop are located in the same complex. Besides football matches, pop concerts are also regularly held in the Nou Camp and on November 17, 1982 Pope John Paul II held a Mass in the stadium for 120,000 people.

Total Football
Dutch coach Rinus Michels introduced the so-called ‘total football’ style of play at Barcelona. A few years later the Dutch national team would, under the supervision of Michels, conquer the world with this distinctive style. It is extraordinary to see that this style of play is still fundamental to the way Barcelona plays today.

Canto del Barça (hymn)
For every home game the Barcelona fans passionately sing the anthem. This is always a very impressive moment. Memorise the words so that you can join almost 100,000 other fans singing "El Canto”!

Tot el camp, és un clam, (The entire field is a clamour)
som la gent blaugrana, (we are the Blaugrana people)
tant se val d'on venim, (no matter where we come from)
si del sud o del nord, (be it south or north)
ara estem d'acord, estem d'acord, (now we all agree, we all agree)
una bandera ens agermana. (a flag unites us in brotherhood) Blaugrana al vent, (Blaugrana with the wind)
un crit valent, (a valiant cry)
tenim un nom, el sap tothom: (we have a name everyone knows)
Barça! Barça! Barça! (Barça! Barça! Barça!)
Jugadors, seguidors, (Players, supporters)
tots units fem força. (all together we are strong)
Són molts anys plens d'afanys, (Many years full of zeal)
són molts gols que hem cridat, (many goals we have screamed)
i s'ha demostrat, s'ha demostrat, (and it's proven, it's proven)
que mai ningú no ens podrà tòrcer. (no-one will ever beat us)
Blaugrana al vent, (Blaugrana with the wind)
un crit valent, (a valiant cry)
tenim un nom, el sap tothom: (we have a name everyone knows)
Barça! Barça! Barça! (Barça! Barça! Barça!)

Experiences from our customers

C. Potter, 2 persons 8 March 2017
FC Barcelona - Celta de Vigo

Well organised, and plenty of communication. Football match was fantastic, good seats and my husband got to see his hero, Messi, play live. Acta Atrium hotel excellent. Central location, lovely room, very helpful & friendly staff

Tip: Wrap up warm for evening match. Even though it\'s spring was chilly

Anonymous, 3 persons 8 March 2017
FC Barcelona - Paris Saint-Germain (CL)

I don\'t think any other match will top the one we saw. Barcelona v PSG at the nou camp with great seats and the incredible champions league atmosphere. Was a bargain for what we experienced. Everything went smoothly with no hiccups and FootballBreak stuck to their word. Of course budget flights like easyjet are not the best and you may get delays so plan accordingly but definitely an incredible experience in a wonderful city. The tickets were ready for collection at the hotel at some promised and thank you to football break for a great trip. Definitely worth the value.

Tip: If going to the nou camp don\'t go into the stadium early. Wait outside and enjoy the atmosphere outside the stadium with the local fans before the game. There are a few bars around.

P. Wheatland, 2 persons 4 March 2017
FC Barcelona - Celta de Vigo

We stayed at Via Augusta hotel - quiet district but very close to metro which took us everywhere we wanted. Recommend buying a ticket for 10 euros which was valid for 10 trips - good value. Stadium amazing and tickets in a perfect location. Would recommend taking a trip with this firm as they were helpful and efficient throughout.

Tip: Get to the ground early as it is huge and very busy. Just soak up the atmosphere and enjoy.

J. Sinclair, 4 persons 4 March 2017
FC Barcelona - Celta de Vigo

Great trip and well administered by Football Break. Barcelona is an excellent city and the stadium was amazing. We used the Hotel Abbot, which although advertised as 4 star, it was 3 at best. It was near to the Sants station but a couple of miles out from the main city centre (Las Ramblas) so it depends when you prefer to travel.

Tip: Nou Camp tour worth a go if you have time and if you want to visit the Sagrada Familia, it isn\'t open on a Sunday.

Anonymous, 3 persons 4 March 2017
FC Barcelona - Celta de Vigo

The whole package worked perfectly. Fantastic atmosphere at Barcelona crowd was brilliant. Loved Barcelona with limited time the tour bus captures it all

Tip: Use the metro easy, clean and quick. Use the tourist bus jump on and off as you please Do the stadium tour

N. Glasgow 4 March 2017
FC Barcelona - Celta de Vigo

I thought the entire trip was brilliant. The prices for the tickets were maybe a little expensive (I wouldn\'t pay that to watch my club!) but I totally understand why when you are paying for the experience, and tickets being arranged by a 3rd party, so still not a negative. Tickets were perfect too, was worried we would be in the heavens but to have seats so close to the pitch was a very welcome suprise! The option to choose our own flights, within the package, was also brilliant - I noticed other companies do not offer this freedom of travel. Hotel was superb, great location and great price. The city was as expected, would go back anytime. All correspondence with yourselves prior to booking, and then prior to the trip was great - always responded to queries and gave honest and insightful answers/information when requested. I would 100% book with you again.

Tip: Enjoy Barcelona for what it is! Get to the ground in good time, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy great football!

Ingham, 5 persons 19 February 2017
FC Barcelona - CD Leganés

The complete package organised by footballbreak was of high quality including flights and accomodation. The taxi from the airport to the centre cost 45 euros for 5 of us.The hotel was in an excellent location and 10 minutes walk from the main street, it was clean, breakfast was good with enough choice for everyone. Getting around Barcelona is easy either walking, using the hop on hop off bus or the Metro.

Tip: Don\'t be afraid to use the Metro, it\'s very easy to understand, use and is cheap. IMG-20170220-WA0000

Mark Bishop, 3 persons 19 February 2017
FC Barcelona - CD Leganés

Just visited Barcelona for a weekend taking in a game & stadium tour plus hotel. Everything was superb, e tickets and hotel details sent a few days before we set off. The flights were great and the hotel Rialto was 3 stars but good for a 4 day break. Your around nou camp is superb and the game on the Sunday evening was brilliant. Easy to get to ground and good atmosphere as we were situated by their noisy fans. All round great weekend.

Tip: Watch out for pick pockets and use the metro to get around the city.

Graeme Stewart, 4 persons 19 February 2017
FC Barcelona - CD Leganés

Amazing! My all time dream of going to the nou camp became reality an it more than lived up to expectations. Football break are so easy to deal with and would definetly use them again. I also requested all 4 seats together at the game, a balcony in our hotel room which were all met. Barcelona as a city isnice with lots of differnent attractions. Segway tour is a must really good fun. The only negatives from my weekend away was the flights because ive got a major fear of it and we also found the locals to be very rude in the way they speak especially taxi drivers but overall loved the trip!!

Tip: If your just there for the football try and get a hotel as close to the nou camp as possible because the metro is madness after the game. Segway tour is really fun to do. ball

C. Abreu, 6 persons 19 February 2017
FC Barcelona - CD Leganés

Great value for money. Hotel is never a 4 star (no coffee in rooms and no bar open)

Jack Orton, 2 persons 19 February 2017
FC Barcelona - CD Leganés

We loved Barcelona. It has everything. It is vibrant, friendly and the metro makes it easy to access. The bonus of a beach means you have somewhere to relax after an exhausting day exploring.

Tip: Get a 2 day metro pass. This gets you from the airport to the city centre and also access to the stadium and other parts of the city during your visit.

FC Barcelona - Las Palmas

I only bought the football tickets through this site and was a bit nervous as I\'d never heard of the website, tickets were exactly what I wanted and were emailed well in advance to print off. Brilliant service and would highly recommend

A. Aswat, 2 persons 14 January 2017
FC Barcelona - Las Palmas

Best package I could possibly fine, not single problem, will 100% be booking another trip with yourself!

C. Phillips, 3 persons 14 January 2017
FC Barcelona - Las Palmas

Very pleased with the whole package from start to finish. Everything went like clockwork from boarding the plane to being picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel. Even though the match day was brought forward to Saturday instead of the Sunday, we had enough time to freshen up at the hotel and get to the Camp Nou for the match. The hotel was very good and the staff were excellent.

Tip: Make sure that you keep your valuables safe as we were targeted by some very unlucky and inept thieves. Score: Visitors 1 Thieves 0. This was after a tour of the Camp Nou on the following day.

Patrick partner, 2 persons 15 October 2016
FC Barcelona - Deportivo de La Coruña

I would like to say that the whole experience apart from flight home due to poor service from Ryanair was superb. The service from Football break excelled any expectation and I would strongly recommend them to anyone interested in this kind of trip. The seats was better than what I expected. The atmosphere at camp nou was class and we found the people and staff very friendly. We only had one other day to explore Barcelona but the little that we did see was immense. I will be taking my wife here but not for football ..lol All in all a superb experience. A massive thumbs up to Football.co.uk

Tip: Use the metro to get back and forth from the ground. Taxis are expensive and the metro is cheap plus it builds the atmosphere for the game

Anonymous from Beaufort, 2 persons 10 September 2016
FC Barcelona - Deportivo Alavés

My brother and I have long dreamed of a trip to Barcelona, with the main, but not sole reason being a chance to watch a game at the Nou Camp. When I set about booking such a trip, the ease of the complete package was hugely appealing, as it meant someone else did all the work of identifying flights, hotels, and securing the tickets. All we had to do was enjoy it. The service was excellent. As we received the tickets by email, we didn\'t meet any representatives of Football Breaks, but all the information and documentation was sent well ahead of time, so there was no fuss or panic. Barcelona is a wonderful city. Although the match was the centrepiece of the experience, the setting made it extra-special. We could only go on certain dates, which determined the match we went to. It wasn\'t the most glamorous of opponents, although Alaves actually won, so the ground wasn\'t as full and the atmosphere not as intense as might otherwise have been the case. Also, it turned out to be the game before a Champions\' League match, so Suarez, Messi, and Iniesta were all on the bench, although all three did come on. If we went again, we\'d maybe try for a different context.

Tip:The only thing we found tricky was the travel to and from the game. We got the Metro from the centre of town. No problem with frequency of trains, but they were jam-packed, especially on the way back. There are plenty of bars and cafes near the ground. Try and get there early, and go for a drink locally after the game, to let the crowds disperse.

Anonymous from Cannock, 2 persons 10 September 2016
FC Barcelona - Deportivo Alavés

I booked this package to Barcelona for my partner\'s 30th birthday. The booking process is so easy and straightforward and the level of customer service from the footballbreak team is fantastic - the booking confirmation includes useful information and the team are extremely efficient in responding to any queries via email. We stayed at hotel U232 which was fantastic - a little out of the city centre but easily accessible via the metro, as was the stadium. The atmosphere at the stadium was amazing. The entire trip exceeded expectations and I would definitely book with Footballbreak again.

Tip:Tip - the metro is the most efficient and cost effective way of getting around the city and to and from the airport. It is so simple to use.

Paul Thompson from Hull, 2 persons 10 August 2016
FC Barcelona - Sampdoria (Joan Gamper Trophy)

The total package was brilliant and great value for money,i took my grandson who is 11 years old and he had a brilliant experiance,and the seats 5 rows from the front on near centre line were amazing,the stadium tour and the total package was excelent,we toured Barcelona by open top bus and this again was amazing,very frendly and we will be doing this again next year and booking throug your selves.

Tip: Stay a bit longer as there is so much other things to see.

Anonymous, 4 persons 23 April 2016
FC Barcelona - Sporting de Gijón

We went on a football break to Barcelona. The city and the football stadium were both amazing, the apartment we stayed in was right by the stadium and was decorated with pictures of the football club which was perfect for our visit. Our tickets were at the apartments reception when we arrived. The flights were great and overall we all enjoyed every minute.

Tip: Maybe try and stay a bit longer. We stayed for two nights but would have loved at least one more day as there is so much to see and do there.

Antony & Scott Mills from Brighton 2 April 2016
FC Barcelona - Real Madrid

I am very happy to write a review - Despite all the arrangements that FootballBreak made being excellent, I was slightly nervous until my tickets were actually accepted at the gate in the Nou Camp stadium in Barcelona. I need not have worried. I booked this trip as an 18th birthday present for my disabled son, and despite being expensive ( considering the face value of the ticket) this \'once in a lifetime\' trip to see a \'sell out\' game where Barcelona play Real Madrid in the Nou Camp stadium could not have been better arranged. The outbound flights were great. ( Easy jet did not let us down) FootballBreak had arranged \'special assistance\' at the airport for my son, as requested and that worked perfectly. We asked for seats in the No Camp near ground level as my son cannot walk up loads of steps- The tickets arrived at my home a few days before the game via DHL, and Rebecca at Footballbreak gave me the seat no\'s beforehand so we able to look up the view on-line. The Eurohotel at the Marina ( whilst 4star) was just adequate rather than luxurious, but as we only slept there it was okay. The staff were friendly but don\'t expect it to feel like The Ritz. The seats in the stadium we had were a few blocks behind the north goal. It was the Johan Cruyff memorial night and 99,274 people were in the stadium. Just fabulous atmosphere - I will never forget it! Norwegian Airlines were surprisingly good on the way home to Gatwick ( Free Wi-Fi on board the plane) The only glitch is that they had no record of \'special assistance\' needed for my son at Gatwick. Although, of course I\'d love it if the trip cost less, Footballbreak absolutely delivered the package I wanted. I\'d rate the experience very highly indeed. Thank-you so much!

Tip: Double check the date of the game in Barcelona - Ours was the Sunday when we originally booked, but then changed to the Saturday ( apparently this happens often) It is very much worth doing the Nou Camp tour - We did this the next day; you get to stand by the pitch, go in the (away) dressing room, see where the press sit ( magnificent view) The club shop in the Nou Camp is a monster over three levels that rivals Niketown in New York. They have everything Barcelona to tempt your wallet from shirts, boots, mints, furry dice and even grass from the pitch. (Queues at the cash desks can take up to 30 minutes though, it is so busy.)

Barcelona

Gerard Piqué’s city happens to be one of the most cosmopolitan and avant-garde in Europe. It is also one of the most popular destinations for European tourists, with almost 30 million flocking here every year to laze on its beaches and marvel at its beauty. This puts it at number 4 on the list of most-visited cities in the European Union. It’s not hard to figure out why, given its rich cultural heritage, gastronomy, balmy temperatures and permanent holiday atmosphere.

City info

Gerard Piqué’s city happens to be one of the most cosmopolitan and avant-garde in Europe. It is also one of the most popular destinations for European tourists, with almost 30 million flocking here every year to laze on its beaches and marvel at its beauty. This puts it at number 4 on the list of most-visited cities in the European Union. It’s not hard to figure out why, given its rich cultural heritage, gastronomy, balmy temperatures and permanent holiday atmosphere.

 

 

Barcelona: following in the steps of Gaudí

The capital of Catalunya has a particularly rich patrimony, and is dominated by the colourful, phantasmagorical architectural works of Gaudí. The medieval buildings of the Barrio Gótico, the grand boulevards of the modernist Eixample and the traditional village feel of Gràcia all exert a powerful charm that draws visitors year on year.

Where to start exploring the city’s artistic and architectural wonders?

An obligatory stopping point is the Sagrada Familia (Metro L2 and L5, Sagrada Familia stop), Gaudí’s Gothic-influenced cathedral and great emblem of the Catalan capital. It is saturated with symbols worked in superb detail, its basilica endlessly enthralling to behold. The project is so enormous that it still isn’t finished 120 years after the first stone was laid. Word is that it’s almost done now – but don’t hold your breath!

About fifteen minutes walk away you’ll find another Gaudí work, the Casa Milà (metro L3 and L5, Diagonal stop), commonly known as “La Pedrera”.  It is a monumental work of Catalan modernism dating from the beginning of the 19th century, and has a deserving place on the UNESCO World Heritage list. So does the eccentric Parc Güell (bus 24 and 92), another Gaudí creation which is without doubt the most visited park in the city.

Don’t worry – if architecture isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other treasures to discover. Lovers of surrealism and cubism should take themselves to the Fondation Joan Miró and the Pablo Picasso Museum, which display the works of the two of Spain’s greatest painters.

  

 

Eating out in Barcelona

While you’ll find all the classic Spanish dishes here, Catalunya has a reputation for producing the country’s best cuisine. Between tradition and innovation Catalan gastronomy balances the homely and comforting with the frankly surprising.

If you like tapas, we strongly recommend going to Bar Cañete situated on Carrer de la Unió, an adjacent street to the famous Ramblas (metro L3, Liceu stop). Alternatively, at a more affordable price, sample the tapas of d’El 58, on the Rambla de Poblenou (metro L4 Poble Nou or Llacuna stops).

Several Basque establishments also offer a vast selection of lip-smacking “pintxos”. The best can be found at Euskal Etxeain the heart of the Born area (metro L4 Jaume I or Barceloneta stops).

 

 

Shopping under the sun

Did you know that Zara, Mango, Desigual, Massimo Dutti and Springfield are all Spanish? While not all of them are Catalan, their collections display a particular type of elegance shared by the entire Iberian Peninsula.

The Passeig de Gràcia (metro L2, L3 and L4, Passeig de Gràcia stop), like the French Champs-Elysées, hosts the luxury boutiques of the great European and international fashion houses. Gucci, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Stella McCartney, Jimmy Choo – a veritable paradise if your wallet is well padded!

On the Carrer de Pelai you’ll find classic ready-to-wear fashions, including Bershka, Stradivarius, Zara, C&A, Celio, and Mango. One advantage is that they are all concentrated on the same street. Another main shopping avenue is the Portal de l’Àngel which has many of the above-mentioned shops, as well as Benetton, Massimo Dutti, El Corte Inglés, H&M, Pull&Bear, Levi’s, Desigual, Intimissimi, Jack&Jones and Women’s Secret. These commercial arteries branch off from the Plaça Catalunya (metro L1 and L3, Plaça Catalunya stop), around which many other brands have also made their home.

For rainy days (of which there are thankfully few!) you can also feed your addiction in numerous shopping centres. The Diagonal MarLes Glòries and Maremagnum centres are among the biggest, but there are plenty of others throughout the city. 

In general, both shopping centres and the shops of big international brands are open every day from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 9pm. Independent boutiques often open from 10am to 1.30pm and again from 4.30pm/5pm to 8.30/9pm to make space for the traditional Spanish siesta.

 

 

Getting around in Barcelona

The public transport system in Barcelona is extensive and well connected. A single ticket costs €1.10 and allows you to travel around the centre of Barcelona by bus, metro or tram for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

If you plan to take public transport regularly, it will work out cheaper for you to buy the T 10, a travel card that gives you ten journeys for €9.95 (so about €1 per trip – 50% less than a single ticket!). The card isn’t personalised, so more than one person can share it.

You can use the Hola BCN! travel card for all metro lines, tram lines, TMB buses, and trains (within zone 1), as well as the Montjuïc funicular, for the number of days chosen (2, 3, 4 or 5 days), again at very reasonable prices. It can even include a return ticket between the airport and the city-centre.

The Barcelona metropolitan transport website, TMBenables you to find the best route for your journey, as well as consult an interactive map of public transport, the timetable of each line, and, even better, get status updates.

 

 

Barcelona at night

Barcelona is lively both day and night and is often ranked among the top European party cities. Catalans eat late, drink late and go out late. Don’t be surprised to find restaurants still shut at 8pm, bars empty at 9pm and clubs with doors closed at midnight!

In the happening neighbourhoods of the Born and Barrio Gótico, as well as in the edgier Raval, you’ll find many tapas bars and lively cocktail bars. The atmosphere is young, vibrant and relaxed. In the more eccentric Gràcia, you’ll find more intimate, boho-arty locales, while Poble Nou is populated with large nightclubs and bars attracting indie rock fans. Villa Olímpica on the seafront hosts a number of trendy lounge bars and clubs with open-air sections.

 

Our recommendations 

- The Caribbean Club (Raval, metro L1 and L3 Catalunya stop) located in the warren of the Raval district. Decent prices and excellent cocktails.

El Bosc de les Fades (Barrio Gótico, metro L3 Drassanes stop): a highly unusual bar filled with trees and fairies to create a world of enchantment.

- Razzmatazz (Ciutadella / Vila Olímpica, metro L4 Bogatell or Poble Nou stops and L1 Marina stop) is a gigantic complex which combines a main concert venue with a multi-room club. Its cutting edge programming draws fans of all types of electronic music, from electro pop to tech house.

- The Apolo (Poble Sec, metro L2 and L3 Parallel stop) is a concert venue and über cool club where top DJs and the crème de la crème of the international indie-rock scene come to perform. There are very popular theme nights on Mondays (“Nasty Monday”), Tuesdays (“Crappy Tuesday”) and Wednesdays (“Cupcake 80”).

- The Macarena (Barrio Gótico, metro L3 Liceu or Drassanes stop) is an intimate club which specialises in underground electro. It’s free entry for women, and is about €5 for men.
