Different alternatives for New Years Eve in Barcelona Welcome 2012, good bye 2011!

If you are in Barcelona for New Years Eve, you may are interested in going to Plaza Cataluña to say good bye to the 2011st and hello to the 2012.

The environment there is very international and maybe some Spanish person share the grapes with you 😉 (the Spanish tradition of taking 12 grapes the first 12 seconds of the year). Agbar Tower say hello to the 2012nd with its lights, sure it will be interesting and beautiful to be there!

Later you will see different possibilities to continue the night of New Years  Eve:




New Year’s Eve at the Poble Espanyol is a big party with the fun atmosphere of the city which will run throughout the night in two covered: The Tent of The Plaza Mayor and the disco’s fair.

Poble Espanyol is a place of great beauty, located on the hill of Monjuic close to the center of Barcelona. The ideal place to spend the nights reserved for major holidays and year-end has been operating for many years with great success of the public.

Sala Apolo is one of my favourite places to go out during the weekend, but if the queue gets used to be hard a regular Friday, I cannot imagine for New Years Eve. Anyway, I´m sure that if you are one of the lucky people that go in to the Apolo, you will get fun, for sure. If you like rock and the 90s, if you like Primavera Sound Festival, this is your place!

Entrance 15€  at the door, 8€ for partners, free until 02.30 for owners of the Primavera Sound card.


We hope to be helpfull for you to choose the best option for New Years Eve!
