Barcelona Night Card: 22 clubs for the price of one
Article updated 10 May, 2017.
7 nights, 20 euros and 22 clubs to explore... can you handle the Barcelona Night Card experience? Fiestaaaaaaaa!
Attention all clubbers! The Barcelona Night Card gives you access to 22 of the city’s clubs for a single payment of 10 or 20 euros.
The Barcelona Night Card: what is it?
The principle behind the Barcelona Night Card is very simple: you simply buy a card which then gives you free access to 22 of the city’s nightlife venues.
Advantages of the Barcelona Night Card
- Huge savings if you’re planning more than one night out (for example, entry to the Sutton alone costs 20 euros)
- Queue jumping privileges: no more waiting!
- The number of participating clubs
- Two options: the 20 euro card gets you unlimited access to 22 clubs for 7 days, whilst the 10 euro option offers the same benefits but for a period of 2 days.
- The card must be used over 2 or 7 consecutive days – so you’re not going to be able to use it on two different weekends.
- You must be over 18 or 21, depending on the club you want to go to.
- You’ll need to arrive at the club before 2am.
- The Barcelona Night Card is personal and non-transferable.
- Cards must be collected from one of Barcelona’s tourist information centres by presenting your confirmation email.
- Note that the Barcelona Night Card is not valid in cases where the club in question is hosting a special event (New Year’s Eve, concerts, celebrity DJs etc.) – but this is relatively rare.
