Aside from Gaudi, Barcelona is arguably best known for its Catalan heritage and populous city beaches. Nestled on these often crowded beaches rest the famous beach clubs of Barcelona – most notably Opium Mar, Shoko, Pacha, CDLC, and Catwalk. Keep reading to find out more about each club and what they have to offer to your nightlife experience in Barcelona!
Opium Mar – Famed for the sexy patrons and high-profile DJs, Opium Mar (or just Opium) attracts an internationally attractive crowd of house music lovers nightly. Here you’ll find students from all over Europe & the US, the best commercial house music remixed by the best DJs in Barcelona, including Frank Caro. Dress to impress and enjoy the party at a VIP table with bottle service and sparklers via Aashi Guest List.
Shoko – Right next door to Opium Mar sits Shoko, an asian-fusion inspired discoteca that is packed nightly. Dress code here is also dress to impress, with collared shirts and dress shoes required for guys. Playing a wider range of music than Opium, Shoko offers party-goers anything from rock classics to Top 40 jams to EDM to Hip Hop. Like all the beach clubs listed here, Shoko hosts nightly parties from Project X to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and you can always count on free entrance and a good time here through Aashi Guest List.
Pacha – Pacha Barcelona resides in what once was Sotavento, also right next to Shoko on the beach. Just this summer, Pacha has made its grand return to BCN and with Aashi Guest List you can experience the madness for free every night of the week! Featuring hot guest DJs like the Duo Diamonds, Pacha plays a variety of music from authentic hip hop, to commercial hits, to open format.
CDLC – aka Carpe Diem Restaurant Club, CDLC can also be found along side of Opium Mar, and is aptly described as glamorous, eclectic, and cosmopolitan in nature. Proud to be an official sponsor of Dom Perignon, CDLC has been awarded as one of the Finest Clubs in the world. The crowd here is more…posh persay than the other beach clubs; don’t miss their VIP lounge area available via Aashi.
Catwalk – Catwalk is the best spot on the beach for commercial hip hop, RnB, and old school (high school dance-esque) jams. Located in between the Hotel Arts and Pacha, Catwalk is most packed on the weekend when crowds flock for hip hop night! They also have fun live performances and shows with tickets through Aashi Guest List.
All of these clubs are more busy in the summer so make sure to get there by around 12:30 to avoid long lines. Always FREE entrance with Aashi Guest List but you have to arrive by the designated time! Bring your state ID cards with you. To reach any of these clubs by metro, you get on L4 and get off at the Ciutadella Vila Olimpica stop. About a 5 minute walk from there towards the beach! Enjoy!
