New Year's Eve in Barcelona is generally enjoyed differently to in other countries. The night typically begins with a long dinner shared with family or friends (for more information see our Guide to Spanish Cultural Christmas Traditions. Link at the foot of this page). This dinner sees in the New Year. It is not until after this that younger people start to head out to clubs and bars. For this reason a lot of the clubs don't really get going until after 02:00. You may choose to book somewhere to eat out for dinner prior to hitting the clubs. Alternatively, you could choose one venue that covers all aspects of the evening, including food. I have taken a detailed look into what sorts of places could provide a perfect venue in Barcelona for New Years Eve and chosen some of the most interesting options.
Getting around on New Year's Eve can often prove to be difficult. Thankfully, the Metro will be running all night, meaning that you will not need to rely on taxis - leaving options open for heading further afield.
This super-club could prove to be a first class choice for New Year's Eve. With five rooms playing all different genres of music, there really is something for everybody. This may prove useful if you are hitting the town with a large group of people - although, once you are through the doors of the club there is a high possibility that you will not be able to find them for the rest of the night!

Moog is well-known as one of Barcelona's most important techno clubs. It sits right in the centre of town, less than two minute's walk from the Ramblas, making it a good option for some after-dinner New Years raving. It will be open all night and offers banging tunes in a dark and sweaty setting - not for the faint hearted!
