Nightlife in Barcelona

Barcelona truly lives by night. Its wild and varied nightlife trends the precarious line between slick and kitschy. In many ways, the city is a tourist’s clubbing heaven: things don’t get going until late and keep going for as a long as you can handle it. Yet for every full-blown dance club, there are a hundred bars, from Irish pubs to gay clubs to absinthe dens.
