Events and Party nights in Gay Barcelona

Barcelona is a city that loves to party. And they party late. The big weekend parties get busy from 3am onwards after the bars close. There are special lists on Facebook where you can get reduced entry or even free entry if you arrive before a certain time.

The two main parties at the weekend are PERVERT, which takes place on Saturday night and The Black Room, a harder, rougher party which takes place on Sundays. Summer parties come and go with the Axel Hotel hosting several night time parties at the pool top Sky Bar.

The big two dates in the gay calendar of Barcelona are the Circuit Festival in August and the Pride event at the end of June. Both events attract people from all over the world, so if you plan on visiting for either of them, we suggest you book your hotel early.
