RECOMMENDED: The best monthly LGBT parties in Barcelona

  • Nightlife
  • Eixample

The girly outpost of the Arena group is the city's largest lesbian club, and as such sees a decent variety of girls (and their male friends, by invitation) head down to shoot pool and dance to pop, house and '80s classics. On the first Sunday of the month, there's a women-only strip show.

Carita Bonita
  • LGBTQ+

This lesbian music bar is in the heart of the Gaixample, making it a great spot to start or finish your night out (or stay there all night). They offer all kinds of cocktails, and you'll meet any type of woman from any age and nationality. The bar aims to be a meeting point for the Barcelona lesbian community where everyone is welcome. There are three floors, an area with tables and quiet space to chat, and a 'Bunker space', which is a mini night club where you can dance to today's hits.

Arena Madre
  • Clubs
  • Dreta de l'Eixample

This place is part of the Arena group, open every day of the week attracting a mixed crowd looking to dance all night with the best house and commercial music. Apart from the great dance floor, there is a dark room. On Mondays they have stripteases.

La Federica
  • LGBTQ+
  • El Poble-sec
  • price 1 of 4

Don’t be suspicious of beautiful places: The interior decor at Federica is delightfully vintage (1970s Formica and plastic), while it serves such delicacies as exclusive and exquisite cold meats and cheeses. The managers, both named Albert, took over with the aim of turning this place into the queer benchmark of Poble-sec: with its theme parties and their delirious shirts, they're well on their way.

La Rosa
  • Nightlife
  • Sarrià - Sant Gervasi

La Rosa is a classic for the local, lesbian community. With so many bars opening and closing, La Rosa stands firm, entertaning generations of girls from all over the city, as well as the world, looking for fun.

  • LGBTQ+
  • El Raval

The first time that might cross your mind when you see this gay bar is: Woody Allen's film. Actually, it's a danish gay bar, and 'zelig' means 'caught' in Dutch. When you'll enter here, you'll be caught by a quaint and colourful atmosphere. The bar serves scrummy Dutch specialties and very good cocktails.

La Raposa

La Raposa is a bar with a strong, combative, and feminist spirit. Luminous and lively place, it is intended to be a multi-purpose meeting space and a work cooperative to promote the culture of the Poble-sec neighborhood. Inside there is a bookshop specialized in feminism and transfeminism topics, where they organize workshops, always provided and coordinated by lesbian or trans women.
