You’re A Techno Addict
The city of Barcelona does sleep, but definitely not at night, that is what siestas are for. What would be the point in sleeping through some of the best parties in the world, especially the weather is so nice. Barcelona offers a plethora of nightlife venues suiting every taste. Each venue has unique characteristics that are worth discovering for yourself but here’s two sick nightclubs we’ve singled out that you should definitely check out to listen to quality techno music.
The Input is literarily the temple for underground clubbers. The club packs a serious punch with its brand new soundsystem and LCD screen combination. Located in Poble Espanyol, it has an industrial aesthetic that lends well to the underground electronic music scene. Open on the weekend, expect to see many amazing artists play here this summer.
The parties at La Terrrazza are also located in the completely surreal mock-village of Poble Espanyol. You’ll dance under palm trees in this intimate antic courtyard, while sipping cocktails and enjoying tech-house beats. All this under the stars, right until the sun comes up. This place has a fresh, happy vibe, fitting of the title “Atmospherical Fun Club”, the perfect place to listen to some quality tech-house music.
You Love Being Different
What if I told you to you grab your flip flops, boardshorts, sunscreen and a handful of friends and get ready to party…on a boat! You in? Believe me there’s nothing like rockin’ the boat and making some waves while sipping a cuba libre or a skinny bitch.
Come on board the Original Barcelona Boat Party and get ready to have an outrageous time. These parties will let you jump off the cliché tourist trail and experience Barcelona the right way onboard 2 story vessel of nautical naughtiness.
You’re sure to have some crazy stories from this party and they promise that what happens on the boat stays on the boat. Live music, resident DJ, free flowing beer and sangria and free VIP entry club…this is definitely something you should experience during your stay in Barcelona!
