The Old Fashioned also has great live music and DJ nights, with tunes ranging from the swinging 60’s to the pop chart music of today.
The Old Fashion bar is a great place for a civilised drink, but if you are looking for a lively club to dance the night away in Barcelona is your oyster. The Razzmatazz is one of the more popular venues in the Ciutat Comtal, although it is slightly out of the city centre. The club has music to cater for all your interests as the venue has 5 different rooms all playing a variety of genres from all the generations of music. For fans of more electronic music from decades gone by, the Moog is the club for you.

Although Barcelona is famed for its nightlife and entertainment, one industry which the city does not get praised for is the gambling trade. When going on holiday, many tourists like to try something out they wouldn’t necessarily do when at home, and what better place to try your first gaming experience than the Casino Barcelona. The venue offers two different types of poker, No Limit Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha, and holds weekly poker tournaments that anybody can get involved in. Professional poker tours are now flocking to Barcelona to experience the card tables, so why not watch the the pros in action.
