It has a quarter of a century of history and is able to satisfy the tastes of fans of a wide variety of styles, such as indie, rock, jazz, hip-hop and Latin music. Weekends attract large audiences thanks to the Nitsa Club and its wonderful sessions of indie music.


Another of the live music venues with more tradition in Barcelona, and one that enjoys huge popularity too. It has five rooms with exceptional acoustics where you can hear live performances from national and international artists of all styles, such as alternative rock, indie and electronic music. It is located next to line 4 Bogatell metro station. The venue has a sober design that has become their trademark of distinction.


Although now open to other styles, such as hip-hop, funk, and Latin music, Jamboree has always been the benchmark location to hear live jazz in Spain. Located on the Plaza Real de Barcelona in the Gothic quarter, this is one of the oldest venues in the city, having hosted concerts since the 1970s. After midnight it becomes a great nightclub with spectacular entertainment.

Luz de Gas

With carefully thought-out interiors and attractive and surprising lighting, Luz de Gas is a music hall aimed at an adult audience who want to take a trip back to the 60s, 70s and 80s. This venue holds performances of jazz, soul, rock and blues, all in exquisite taste. Elegance is its main characteristic.


Also on the Avenida Diagonal, Bikini is a classic staple of Barcelona nightlife. Although this place has been around since the 1950s, it has been able to adapt to new times and is currently enjoying something of a second youth. In addition to their disco persona, Bikini offers fantastic concerts in styles as diverse as soul, blues, pop, rock and Latin. The painstaking effort they’ve put into their interiors is another strong point of this music hall that is still very much on top form.
