Since putting a bomb under the start of the week back in 2004, Nasty Mondays have gone on to become the most famous - or rather infamous - party in Barcelona, with no signs of letting up. A cross-section of hedonists from around the world rock up to Sala Apolo club every Monday around midnight to go wild into the wee hours, with a brazen disregard for what Tuesday might bring. The heavily-tattooed DJs - Madmax and Soren - whip the crowd into a frenzy with killer tracks by the likes of The Artic Monkeys, Led Zeppelin, Daft Punk and Simian and other kick-arse indie, 80s rock and garage acts. The resulting atmosphere is more like the mosh pit of heavy metal concert or front stage of a festival than a club night! Downstairs meanwhile there's some dark electro and fidget house for those who fancy a change a scene. Undoubtedly Nasty Mondays is the best way to kick off any week in Barcelona, and in fact the party is so renowned that you can now rip it up at N.M.'s in New York. Back here in BCN the party has spawned two sister events, the slightly more dancey Crappy Tuesdays, and Thursday's amazing Cupcake 80s party!
Seems to have lost its edge in recent years, whilst prices go up and up.

Fantastic music - JUSTICE, Make The GIrl Dance, Artic Monkeys with some 80s stuff thrown in (plus some cool Dub and electro downstairs). Skate/alternative crowd for the most part. Insanely popular right now, so arrive early (midnight) to avoid disappointment!

Really crowded and the people were quite young (or maybe we're just getting old!) but you have to hand it to them - for a monday night this is one hell of a party.
