When Albert Villaplana and Albert Macaya (the Alberts, as they’re endearingly called) decided to make La Federica their own, they knew they would have to make their mark on the emblematic Barcelona hotspot. That they did, with pastel, ’70s-themed furniture, brightly hued shirts and fanciful themed parties. If their goal was to build a queer haven in the middle of Poble-sec, the Alberts are well on their way.
Barcelona’s gay bars are electric. No matter your sexual preference you are in for some heck of a night here, one filled with great vibes, great drinks and even better dancing. There is an extremely dynamic LGBTQI+ scene in Barcelona that attracts visitors from all over the world. The major events on the calendar bring the crowds, but the gay bar scene here is a seven days a week extravaganza where the good times never stop. There is plenty of variety too, from exclusively lesbian bars to more stripped back spots offering food and conversation in equal measure. The nightlife here is world-famous, and the best gay bars in Barcelona are a vital part of that.
