If you’re up for a big one this is it. I hope you’ve been ‘practicing’ because this just might be the Champion’s League Final of Barcelona club nights.
Down the hatch, guys n’ gals!
What is Razzmatazz Barcelona?
It’s beyond a shadow of a doubt Barcelona’s most popular night club. Not even Sala Apolo can touch it!
Built in an old warehouse, ‘Razz’ counts five different dancehalls. ‘The Razz Club’ is the biggest and usually plays host to international rock music. In the Loft Hall electro-lovers will go wild while the PopBar spins garage and soul rhythms. Lovers of techno pop and deep house should head to Sala Lolita while electro-rock enthusiasts will find their way to the Rex Room.
It’s a huge labyrinth of a place on the inside so it’s easy to lose your friends in the mix. Set a meeting point before going in!
Razzmatazz also hosts many music events and live concerts attracting popular international artists. Check out their events calendar under the conciertos or clubs section.
Also, try to see if YALL are playing. They’re an electro-DJ group from Barcelona and seeing them is always a great night out.
Tickets for Razzmatazz Barcelona
When there are live concerts the ticket prices change – the bad thing is if you have a concert ticket you can’t stay to enjoy the rest of the club. If bought at the door, a regular ticket for Razzmatazz Barcelona will cost you €17. If you buy it online on the official website you’ll only pay €12 + fees. Both options come with a drink.
How to Get to Razzmatazz Barcelona
The address is 122 Carrer dels Almogavers and the closest subway stops are Marina (red line L1) and Bogatell (yellow line L4). Razzmatazz shuts around 6:00 am but I don’t recommend going there before 2. Things usually get going pretty late and they always save the best music for the end of the night!!
Expert Advice and Other Info
- Don’t worry! The line is long but fast
- Don’t lose the ticket they give you at the entrance, that’s how you get your free drink!
- Drinks are considerably cheaper before 2:30
- As mentioned before, set a meeting point with friends before going in! It’s not uncommon to get lost.
- The coat check is at the right end of the main hall (if you leave from a secondary exit you’ll have to get back in from the main entrance to get your stuff back)
- Don’t accept drinks from strangers unless you see it poured!
Razzmatazz Barcelona Pre-Drinks
A special tip for your pre-Razzmatazzian party: go and get an ‘easy’ drink at the OVEJA NEGRA (Ovella Negra in Catalan and Black Sheep in English). This massive pub is just a short walk away from Razzmatazz and has hundreds of tables and a room to play pool and Spanish foosball.
There’s also a small concert hall. It’s pretty cheap and you’ll be able to dance without people complaining that you smell of cheap whiskey! Pay attention though; there are two Oveja Negras. One is in the city center and is small and isn’t so good.
The cool one, the one you’ll head to is the one close to Razzmatazz… it’s great and the difference is night and day!
