Looking for a rock club in Barcelona? Two words: Magic Club. It’s the spot that rock freaks flock to en masse when they realise that they’ve fallen for the traps and lies of the modern world, or just when they feel like getting drunk and dancing to the Dictators. Since opening in 1976, Magic has seen it all: counterculture, punk, new wave. From the mid-'90s up to the past decade, the club led a double life as a concert hall. Johnny Thunders, Hellacopters, the best of the world’s high-energy rock set the tiny stage on fire. Now, by city law, the venue only serves as a club, welcoming the pop-wearing into its open rocker arms. It’s a little microcosm where you can dance out the weekends in perpetual darkness until 6 in the morning. On its two dancefloors, you'll see a happy frenzy of tattoos, young party-seekers, techno-haters and vamps: anything goes, except smoking on the dancefloor.
