Punto

Átame

They play Mónica Naranjo, Raphael and then, suddenly, Madonna. This is how it works in this bar, where the afternoons are relaxed, but the nights explode with the campiest music of all time. Uncommon in Barcelona, there's a happy hour on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 7pm to 10pm, and a show at midnight every night.

Bim Bam Bum

Boys in tight tees, a drag queen itching to put on a show, house music, a little ice and lots of spice. These are the ingredients of the cocktail served up at one of the liveliest spots on the Barcelona scene. The man behind it is the Cuban Roelkis Hernández, an ex-gogo dancer at Matinée turned businessman (with his business partner Igor).

Boys Bar BCN

This club has been a lot of things before now. First, it was a lesbian bar called Museum Girls. Then, it went for the music of the '80s and '90s when it was reincarnated as Museum Retro. Since March 2013, it's been Boys Bar, the new location for a bar that already existed in C/Muntaner. The usual crowd are fans of Matinée and parties like Bitch.

Dacksy

At last a cocktail bar where you can dare to order something more than a vodka an orange and not have the barman give you a look like you've just spoken in tongues. It's one of the few spots in the area where you can sit quietly and enjoy a scrumptious and well-made cocktail.

Dietrich

A classic - although now somewhat careworn - club, Dietrich generally attracts a mixed and lively crowd. Acrobats and drag artists perform on the dancefloor, and the friendly international bar crew speak English. Átame, two doors down at no.257, is run by the same people, and is very relaxed.

El Cangrejo Raval

Critics' choice

El Cangrejo (the crab) is known for '80s nights and drag shows, and if you remember the '80s and have ever seen a drag show, you'll know it can be quite hard to tell the difference. Either way, if you're looking for an alternative to the ultra-straight or too-techno, El Cangrejo is sure to please.

El Cangrejo Eixample

If you can ignore first impressions based on the decor (which looks as if Gaudí sneezed violently), you'll find a lively and friendly bar. It tends to attract a younger crowd, similar to that of the original Cangrejo in the Raval.

La Bata de Boatiné

Critics' choice

Your best bet when you choose a night out in La Bata de Boatiné is to let yourself be seduced by the ambience, meaning be open to making some new friends whether you want to or not, because most of the patrons have never heard of the concept of personal space.
