Went with a friend, and we got early and the place was quite empty but in 1 hour got almost full. Lots of people, lots of nice music and lots of fun! What a great night! The badest thing is the drink prices but whatever......More

Could not get in again, they have a totally arbitrary door policy now. There has been a "no sportsware" policy for a while which was interpreted randomly, but at the same time no smart shoes, and now it is just hit and miss if you...More

Yesterday I was in Sala Apolo when my friend had an emergency call. We went outside to help her and weren't able to get back inside. The guards treated us with no respect. Basically robbed!!!! Wasted 20 euros for nothing, hated the experience.

Had the pleasure of visiting to see the Stereophonics on 2nd Feb, a great venue indeed. Easy to find, great location and the best thing, no bar queues, plenty of staff. Only holds around 1600 people so concerts are very up close and personal.

The music was meant to be great and honestly it sounded like only one beat and rythm the whole evening. Waiters unpleasant but nothing compared to the agressive attitude of the doormen. I don't recommand it to anyone Who wants to have a fun night...More

If you're going to Barcelona and staying Mondays night, you can't miss Nasty Mondays at Sala apolo. Best party ever, the best classics rock n' roll songs all night long until 5:30 am.

This place is more of a dance/concert hall with a club as it has multiple levels with a stage and multiple bars. It's really huge inside! The Techno music and dancing were good. Expect very loud music, smoke, and lots of sweaty guys! It was...More

First and foremost, you experience will 100% depend on who's playing. Reviewing a place based on a single night experience when DJs can change 2-3 times a night is pretty silly. Having said that, during the single night that I went there on a whim,...More

Went there for the music and was not disappointed. We did get there a little early so anything before 2:30am just okay. It did get better though and enjoyed the conversation outside with the locals.
