Our guide to gay bars in Barcelona.

A city obsessed with the latest styles and fashions,today’s Gay Barcelona hot-spot can become tomorrow’s after-thought. The battle for the Pink Euro is fiercely fought. The result? You will find some of the most contemporary “fashion-conscious” designer gay bars tucked right next to the oldest traditional tapas bars in Barcelona. Your night out begins with relaxing in an outdoor cafe over a refreshing Cava before you decide on where to dine. People eat late in Barcelona. (Eating at 10pm is considered an early meal). Afterwards, its on to one of the many “musical bars” featuring disco music, guest dj’s, strippers or drag shows.

As the night winds past 3am, its on to one of the many night clubs and late parties. As Barcelona is home to some of the biggest gay clubs and promoters in Europe, expect plenty of choice in terms of musical style and theme.  Most discos have large dark rooms.

Alternatively your journey may take you to some of the many leather/sex bars which have all sorts of surprises in store for you! And of course there’s always the Saunas. Barcelona has some of the cleanest and well-equipped Saunas we have seen, some of which are open 24 hours a day.

In short, the Bar scene in Barcelona is wide and varied. There is something for all tastes. Whether its looking hot with all the pretty-boys during the Summer, chilling out in the Axel Sky Lounge , or stripping off in Berlin Dark, this is one town where you won’t be short on options.
