What began as a little bar in the Raval, Plástico is now one of the hottest Wednesday-night spots in Barcelona.

Café Royale. Nou de Zurbano, 3. 93 318 89 56. Free.
Right next to Plaça Reial is this eccentric club that draws a mixed crowd and offers up a little something different every night of the week.

For the Tuesday zombies who didn’t get enough at Apolo the night before with Nasty Mondays. Like the night before, you’ll find a young, trendy skater crowd. DJ Legoteque guides you through this party, which is a bit more indie and electro pop than its weekly predecesor.
City Hall. Rambla de Catalunya, 2-4. 93 238 07 22. http://cityhallbarcelona.com. Free.
Like every Wednesday for the last few years, City Hall presents this sesión dedicated to rock, the ’80s and ’90s, and modern rhythms. And if you go early you can have a good look round this centrally located club, usually a temple of electronical, which still looks like the old Teatro Barcelona, with light bulbs, stage and velvet curtains.
Sala Apolo. Nou de la Rambla, 113. 93 441 40 01. www.sala-apolo.com. €13.
Nasty Mondays is a reason to dance, sing and shout every Monday. It’s a party that has everything to do with the skateboarding/surfing/snowboard scene, where rock, pop, indie, garaje and electro rock rule – from Led Zeppelin and Mötley Crüe to The Killers to Daft Punk and Joy Division, and even a bit of Johnny Cash thrown in to the mix.
Sidecar Factory Club. Pl. Reial, 7. 93 302 15 86. www.sidecarfactoryclub.com. €5.
Tuesdays at Sidecar is Raw Rebels night, where you can dance to the best beats of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s, with DJs domestic and foreign playing swing, rockabilly, R&B, soul, surf, fuzz sound and ’60s garaje. If you’re a fan of films like Dragstrip Riot or Rebel Without a Cause, toupees, tattoos, pin-ups and guitar riffs heavy on the reverb, this is your party.
Hotel Omm. Rosselló, 265. 934 45 40 00. www.hotelomm.es. Free.
Hotel Omm brings you the best house music every Thursday night. The goal is to bring the craziest nights on Ibiza to the shores of Barcelona, courtesy of DJs such as Franco de Mulero, a regular in Pachá on the white island.
