Do you have plans for New Year´s Eve in Barcelona?
If you don´t have, don´t worry The Urban Suites have though from where you can go and eat grapes surrounded by nice people to the best places to go boogie at New Year´s eve. You may don´t know that is traditional to eat twelve grapes, one on each chime of the clock.
Dinner options will the next post.
WHERE TO TOAST FOR THE NEW YEAR:
Catalonia Square: During the last few years this place has become a meeting point to take the grapes and provide the welcoming to the New Year. The last New Year´s Eve about 50 thousand people met at this place, most of whom were tourists. One point to note is that there is a police cordon around the square not to allow people to enter with bottles, but biodegradable cups are distributed to everyone.
Agbar Tower: The Agbar Tower changes the lighting first with the quarter and after the stroke, so it is an interesting proposal to go to eat the grapes.
WHERE TO GO OUT:
Sala Apolo: At Nitsa 2 are: DJ COCO + PEGATAS + MËTHER & ZACKER + FERDIYEI + CHARLYRAW
At the top: DJ FRA + MARC PIÑOL + KOSMOS
Entrance: 15 €
Sala Razzmatazz: There is a 15 minutes walk from the Agbar Tower, so if you take the grapes there, it´s easy to get there. This club have five large rooms with different environments and music (techno, pop, indie, electro, rock, house …).
Access from 22:30 h: With 2 drinks, Tshirt Razz’13, Cotillion, Lucky grapes, glass of champagne Price: 45 €
22:30 to 00:15: Show and Chimes by the Dirty Dancing Crew.
-From 00:30 Access to 5 rooms with Razz The Greatest Hits Collection
Check in after 00:01 includes 2 drinks and Tshirt Razz’13 €
Sidecar: This place is situated at Plaza Real and you will be able to dance the wildest rock. Not very big, so if you do not arrive soon you might find making a big queue. But it worth entering, is open until 6am and the environment deserves the minutes you wait in the tail. You have a 5-10 minutes walk from Catalunya Square.
City Hall: Next to Plaza Catalunya, less than 2 minutes walking you will find this nightclub. It´s known for offering a varied program every day. It has two different rooms (one electro, the another more rock) and two terraces that are open all year. City hall is also an excellent choice.Rambla Cataluña 4.
NOCHEVIEJA REGENERADORA: (Postapocalyptic, as always): In my opinion, this is the craziest party of all and the funnier. Raúl Muniente, its creator, is a quintessential mass agitator and never fails in its mission to let the people have fun.
This time has moved to Poble Nou, to the Taberna Sonora, near Sala Razzmatazz.
