Barcelona nightlife

For quirky locals' haunts, head to the Calle Joaquín Costa in El Raval; if you're looking for something more sophisticated, the streets around the Passeig del Born draw a fashionable crowd. Thirsting for alfresco drinks? The Plaça Reial is ideal, and the Port Olímpic is packed with touristy, but sometimes fun, mega clubs. Nights out begin with a late dinner, starting around 10:30 p.m. Closer to 1 a.m., everyone heads to the bars, but pace yourself, because you'll be barhopping until 3 a.m., when partyers gravitate toward a thumping club, where you can dance until around 5 a.m. The truly hard-core then head out in search of breakfast.
