Well done if you managed to make it to La Sagrada Familia and even better if you popped your head in the Picasso Museum, but here's where the real fun starts. The nightlife in Barcelona is deservedly legendary and many visitors come from far and wide to mingle in the designer, celeb-studded hotel bars and coctelerias of the Catalan capital, whilst others prefer simply to sink a few jarras in the city's down-to-earth cerveserias, bohemian cafes and surprisingly good Irish pubs. Later at night the cool kids of Catalonia will desert the boozers and head to the clubs (quaintly referred to in Barna as 'discotecas)', which stay open 'til dawn, and many of which offer all-night dancing under the stars during summer. Whether you fancy a quiet coffee in the Gothic quarter, a monster rave in the Raval district, or some glitz and glamour at the Port Olimpic, Barcelona Life has tracked down some of the most memorable watering holes in the city... salut!

"Do not go to this club!!!! 9 girls went sat night and was approached by a disgusting little man saying he was the owner he was basically so rude to my friends and made one apologise for saying to the other girls let's get going or he wasn't going to let her in!!b he then came over to our table and tired to get one of my friends to talk to him when she politely told him she was married and not interested he walked off only for the bouncer to come over and say finished we had to leave!! I told the bouncer this was disgusting and sexually harassment! Because my friend doesn't want to talk to him he is chucking us out!! My friend then then went over to him and asked what we had done he said if we all went over to him individually and apologised he would let us stay!!! How dare any man think he can treat any women like this!! We had done nothing! And agin because we refused this horrible disgusting vile little loner of a man got the bouncer to come over and ask us to leave again! Any girls thinking of going to this club don't!! He said he was from Hatfield and the owner so if you see him stay well away!!! "
