Live Music in Barceloneta, the Waterfront & El Poblenou

Bands from far and wide occasionally create scenes of near hysteria in this, one of the city’s classic live-music and clubbing venues. Bands can appear throughout the week (check the website), with different start times. On weekends live music later gives way to club sounds.

Five different rooms in one huge post-industrial space attract people of all dance persuasions and ages, and the offering varies from night to night. The main space, RazzClub, is a haven for the latest international rock and indie acts. The Loft does techno, house and electro, while the Pop Bar offers anything from R&B to '80s hits. Lolita is the land of house, disco and electro, and upstairs in the Rex Room urban sounds range from hip-hop to dancehall. You can save a few euros by purchasing tickets to concerts in advance online.
