One key word you must remember about nightlife in Barcelona is “late”. Dinner starts at most restaurants around 22:00, and can last until midnight, more so on Fridays and Saturdays. As a consequence, clubs and discotheques are deserted until 1:00 or 2:00 am, and after that the party can continue up until 6:00 am (in selected venues).
Nightlife in Barcelona is very mixed, as the city itself, and on the contrary as other cities, is not concentrated in just one area. The offer is so big that competition against clubs is fierce. Most of the action is primarily located around La Rambla, El Born, Port Olímpic and Gran Vía, although there are clubs scattered all over town. The clubs recruit people by giving promotional flyers in popular areas of the city center, where they may offer discounts on drinks or offer a free entrance.
