I've only been here for concerts and not for clubbing. As a concert arena it's really great. It has two venues. One big and one smaller. The big one has a historic really beautiful interior and the smaller a contemporary cool look.

Best venue in Barcelona if you want to enjoy music. If you like any kind of music you can find it at Apolo, program is super diverse. Opened every day :)

I make sure every time when I'm in BCN and it's Monday I go to Nasty Mondays party in Apolo. If you're there and it's Monday - you already have plans for the evening, believe me. Wildest parties I've ever been to, totally worth spending 16€ for (drink included!). It has two rooms with completely different but equally awesome music... More

Cool club with good ambiance. Not very special but if you haven't been 2 at club that is an old theater than you will like it and they usually play techno! :)

I saw a phenomenal Flamenco show with El Carpeta, el Yiyo and Miguel Poveda (singer) at the Sala Apolo--and I wish I had been able to see five more shows of that caliber. It was amazing!

Came here for crappy Tuesday's which is like the little brother to nasty Monday's. Upstairs is good it has indie/alternative music and always a big crowd. But downstairs, nasty bass is my absolute favourite room. DJs are always on point and has the perfect mix of bass, electronic, techno. Doesn't get busy until about 1.30/2 but is open til 5.... More

This discotheque is a bit away from the Barcelona center. It is quite big. On the day we were there there was a band (not known) playing at we had to pay 18 euros at the entrance. The ticket included one drink. The staff at the door and at the bar are friendly and service minded. On one floor there... More

Two friends and I went to this techno club because a guy I've met before told me, that this would be the best club in the city. These are big words. In my opinion it's a really good techno club but not the best I've ever been to. We paid €18 entry and €2 for the wardrobe and we met... More

We arrived here around 2300 and the people had just started to arrive. There was a live rock band at one stage and some techno at the other...nice concept.

Best venue/club sound in town. Best gigs. Different nightclub every night with the best ambiance and without problems in the door (no matter how you are/dress). Cheaper than the posher clubs in town. Worth a visit.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
