In the Summer everyone gets the desire to do things and squeeze every minute of their day. If you’re also a night animal you’ll love these plans for Summer nights to take advantage of the city when the sun goes down. Live the night!
Modernism and jazz in the moonlight
Imagine the scene; a glass of sparkling cava, live music and an environment designed by one of the geniuses of Catalan modernism, Antoni Gaudí. When the sun goes down the Palau Güell and La Pedrera open their doors so that you can enjoy jazz concerts on their rooftops. In addition, a small guided tour is included in both spaces. Prices range from 30 to 35 euros.
As every year, Summer nights are outdoor movie nights at several spots of the city. A good way to remember great classics like Manhattan, recent hits such as La La Land, or more alternative feature films like the Israelite Bar Bahar.
Music in the parks
More than 30 green spaces in the city host concerts of all kinds during Summer nights; Orchestras, choral formations, classical music or young talents from the city’s music schools. In addition, after each show, guided tours are offered to learn about the social and environmental benefits of the parks in the city. Check their calendar, you have time until 31st August.
History and tradition routes
And if you want to spend a mystery Summer night, nothing better than doing one of the routes organised by Cultruta to learn more about Barcelona’s history and traditions. You have two options to choose; aroute through the places where the most violent events and crimes of Ciutat Vella took place, or a tour of the best kept secrets and legends of neighbourhoods such as L’Eixample, El Born or El Raval.
The routes are in Spanish, Catalan, and if you do a request, also in English 😉
Culture at nightfall
Every Wednesday during the Summer CaixaForum Barcelona offers different activities for culture, music and performing arts lovers. For free or for a token price of 6 euros, you can sign up to see how to create an urban work of art, dance to the rhythm of African music or review the history of magic in cinema.
Full moon at sea
The guys at Surf House Barcelona offer a multitude of water activities, but we chose the Full Moon Paddle Surf, a paddle surfing trip on Barceloneta beach to enjoy the full moon, with a Moritz beer in hand. When you come back to mainland a fresh cocktail will be waiting for you so you can keep the party going!
Night Out cada noche en Twentytú
We talk about partying and you don’t know where and how to start? Don’t worry, you can sign up for Night Out, where you’ll go with Twentytú hostel guests and from other hostels in Barcelona around the best clubs in town. If you want to sign up, you only have to ask at reception or meet the rest of the group at the terrace at 23:00. In Barcelona the party never ends, so we have fun from Monday to Sunday!
