1. PLAZA ESPANYA
Best spot for an outdoor celebration of the New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015! Be prepared for concerts, visual shows, flashing lights and human towers. Highlight of the evening – a 15 m high iron figure called ‘L’home del millenni’ (The Man of the Millenium), put on stage by the Catalan theatre group Fura del Baus.
2. PLAZA CATALUNYA
The centre of the middle of Barcelona, Plaza Catalunya will be the meeting point of all the tourists that usually spend New Year’s Eve outside, in the central points of their cities. After cheering ‘HAPPY NEW YEAR!’, the vast majority will most likely hit the pubs and bars on Las Ramblas – the most famous street in Barcelona, which is literally adjacent with the Plaza.
3. POBLE ESPANYOL
Considered to be one of the most atmospheric venues in the whole Barcelona due to its narrow size, Poble Espanyol is thus a more intimate approach towards spending the New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015. With retro music concerts featuring ’70s/’80s/’90s styles, the tickets cost 35€ and include five drinks, hot chocolate and a party bag! VIP tickets are 45€.
4. PARTIES ON THE BEACH
What can be better than a beach celebration of New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015? We’re telling you – NADA!! Grab your friends and your booze and be prepared to raid those beaches accompanied by other crazy people, all waiting for the marvellous fireworks from midnight! If you feel ‘adventurous’, you can try the parties from the W Hotel – 50€ to enter to the W lounge; 100€ for the Eclipse bar.
Oh, Good ol’ Razzmatazz! Of course it couldn’t be missed from the list of venues for the New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015! With a unique ambience, Sala Razzmatazz can be the best choice for a techno clubbing, especially for those of you that are into electronica ‘warehouse’ parties. Tickets are 50€ (till midnight) and 40€ afterwards.
Alongside with Razzmatazz, Opium is also one of the most touristic clubs in Barcelona. Situated by the beach, it will also give you the opportunity to admire the midnight fireworks from shore, while enjoying excellent loud electronica! Ticket prices are 50€ (including one drink).

8. HARLEM JAZZ CLUB
Wanna hear some latino vibes during the New Year’s Eve in Barcelona 2015? Then off you go – Harlem Jazz Club! Do your warm up before going there, you are going to need all the muscles in your body, as the salsa, afrobeats or bossa nova style music will make you shake yo’ ass so hard that the next day not only you will feel the hangover, but also a very acute muscle soreness! Tickets are extremely cheap (considering other venues) – 16€ (live music and dj session after 2am).
9. HARD ROCK CAFE
For those of you who just wanna take it easy and chillax after a long 2014 year while enjoying a great 3-course Spanish dinner plus dessert, we recommend you the Hard Rock Cafe. Dinner, dessert, party bag and drinks will be 100€, whereas if you only wanna drink, it will cost you half.
