10 popular clubs in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona


When it comes to a night out in the city of Barcelona, you will be spoilt for choice with these 10 popular clubs in the Gothic Quarter.

Boulevard Barcelona

One of the easiest clubs to find, Boulevard Barcelona is in the very heart of the city. La Rambla is a street well known for being a popular tourist destination during the day, but it comes alive after dark with Boulevard Barcelona as its focal point.

Marula Café

With classics by Sly and the Family Stone, Jackson 5 and James Brown, expect old school soul, funk and R&B at Marula Café.

Sidecar Factory Club

There’s a varied choice of club nights at the Sidecar Factory. Funk and soul, mod, indie and shoegaze, hard rock, punk and new wave. Check local listings, they also have live music in the week too.


Although they have regular live jazz and blues, after dark Jamboree is a favourite among hip hop fans. The multi-award winning, DJ Yoda has played here a number of times.

El Bombon

It wouldn’t be a holiday in Spain without visiting a salsa club. If you’ve been having lessons, love the music or just want to try your hand at the cha-cha-cha then visit El Bombon. If you go mid-week, there are dance teachers waiting to give you a helping hand.


Playing some of the best electro music in Barcelona, Moog is popular with the locals. There may not be much room on the dancefloor, but it helps keep it underground and away from the mainstream.

Harlem Jazz Club

The Harlem Jazz Club brings a bit of down town New York to Barcelona. This is an old-time swing club, while live music includes regular blues jam sessions.


With dance music upstairs played by resident DJ’s Fra, William Dafoe and Kosmos Nitsa promises to have you dancing all night long. Open until 6am, you won’t be likely to leave until the sun starts to rise.


This intimate club supports the best new house and techno music, the club may be small but the sound is immense.

Karma Disco
