Razzmatazz Barcelona: Get Down at the City’s Best Club


If you’re up for a big night out in Barcelona you’ve come to the right place.

I just hope you’ve been ‘practicing’.

Because this just might be the Champion’s League Final of Barcelona club nights and you’ve got to be in form for this one: Razzmatazz Barcelona.

In this guide I’ll show you what you’ll find in all the rooms, the best nights to go, and how to get your tickets in advance so you don’t end up lining up for days.

Clubs at Razzmatazz Barcelona

If you’ve searched it out you probably know it already. This is one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions even if it’s night club – not even Sala Apolo can touch it!

Sala Razzmatazz counts five different dance-halls.

The Razz Club is the main room and usually plays indie, new wave, electro-rock, and pop-rock. The Loft Hall goes for a selection of techno, house, and electro music. PopBar spins pop and R&B classics from the 80’s and 90’s with a touch of garage and soul.

If you’re into techno pop and deep house you should head to Sala Lolita while people looking for dancehall, hip hop, acid, and future beats will find their way to the Rex Room.

In short? It’s five clubs in one with a capacity of 2500 people.

In addition to the rooms listed above you’ll also find some pretty classic Razzmatazz event nights running weekly which I will get into below.

Razzmatazz Events

Wednesday – El Dirty

Up for a midweek mashup in the main room?

This Barcelona Wednesday party has been going strong since 2009 with no signs of slowing down. DJs Purpur & Perotutehasvisto bash out guilty-pleasure dance pop classics to crowds dressed in costume splitting the week in half with every cocktail.

The night has spawned a second room called El Sucio where Latin ryhthms and reggaeton get spun by The Valley Brothers.

The entry fee varies between €11.00 and €15.00 depending on tickets.

Friday – Fuego

It’s been a year since Razzmatazz club decided to answer the bell with a big hip hop and R&B night. What sets this apart is the live performances of various artists on stage as part of the Fuego Live! festivities.

International players here have included Kidd Keo, Post Malone, Princess Nokia, Russ, Lady Leshurr, Mc Bin Laden, and more.

Entry fees vary between €15.00 and €20.00 depending on ticket type.

Saturday – Trill

This night plays host to the so-called laboratory of urban music at the Rex Room. It’s a great option for people looking to get down to R&B, trap, cloud rap, grime, and footwork.

The rotating list of house DJs like Sanatruja, Downites, Will Blake, and Enpunto alternate with guest DJs to keep the whole vibe fresh and moving.

Entry fees vary between €15.00 and €20.00 depending on ticket type.

Sunday – Insert

If you need a big Sunday afternoon session the folks at Razzmatazz have set up shop down the street at Razzmatazz 3 (Carrer Pamplona 88) for authentic club culture and ‘techno with respect‘.

Each event is hosted by different local or international DJs and you can find the schedule here.

It typically starts at 6 pm and tickets range between €11.00 and €15.00.

Razzmatazz Tickets

When there are live concerts Razzmatazz prices tend to change – and the bad thing is if you have a concert ticket you can’t stay to enjoy the rest of the club.

If bought at the door a regular ticket for Razzmatazz Barcelona with one drink will cost you €17.00 and up.

In order to guarantee entry (it’s not uncommon to sell out regardless of the enormous capacity) and get the lowest price it is recommended to reserve in advance.

Looking for a Razzmaazz guest list option? Me too! I’ve looked high and low and it appears unless you’ve got an in with employees you’ll have to pay like everybody else.

Razzmatazz Opening Times

Razzmatazz is open for club nights on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday and the hours change depending on the evening so I suggest checking their calendar.

In general Razzmatazz club shuts around 6:00 am.

I don’t recommend going there before 2:00 am as things usually get going pretty late and they always save the best music for the end of the night.

Razzmatazz Concerts

Razzmatazz club also hosts many music events and live concerts attracting popular international artists from rock and roll to death metal to ska and bubble gum pop groups.

Check out the Razzmatazz concert calendar for more information.

Also, try to see if YALL are playing: they’re an electro-DJ group from Barcelona and seeing them is always a great night out.

Razzmatazz Advice

  • Don’t lose the ticket they give you at the entrance, that’s how you get your free drink!
  • Drinks are considerably cheaper before 2:30.
  • As mentioned, set a meeting point with friends before! It’s not uncommon to get lost.
  • The coat check is at the right end of the main hall (if you leave from a secondary exit you’ll have to get back in from the main entrance to get your stuff back).
  • Don’t accept drinks from strangers unless you see it poured.

Razzmatazz Dress Code

Being a club that’s super popular with students and young people there naturally isn’t a strict dress code at Razzmatazz.

That said, don’t push your luck by showing up in beach attire.

The average Razzmatazz uniform would be jeans, some converse sneakers, and a stylish vintage t-shirt at maximum. Don’t go in with a nice shirt and shoes or you’ll feel out of place.

Razzmatazz Barcelona Pre-Drinks

A special tip for your pre-Razzmatazz party: go and get an ‘easy’ drink at the Oveja Negra (Carrer de Zamora 78).

This massive pub is just a short walk from Razzmatazz club and has hundreds of tables and a room to play pool and Spanish foosball. You can get a proper pint for about €3.00 or go for the infamous panther milk drink.

Everybody gets pretty lit so you’ll be able to dance without people complaining that you smell of cheap whiskey! Pay attention though: there are two Oveja Negras. One is in the city center in Raval and is small and isn’t so good.

Another option for bars near Razzmatazz, provided you’re a big fan of loud guitar music is Sala Rocksound (Carrer dels Almogàvers 116).

Around 9:30 pm you’ll find gigs from touring metal, punk, and rock bands starting at €5.00. On non-gig nights you’ll get cheap beer, loud music, and pool.

Get Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Casa Batllo, and a 10% Discount Card!

    Hi Ash, Great site Small group of (just) over 40s heading for a weekend. Young at heart but don't want to feel like old uncles at a wedding. Would here be two young for us? If so anywhere you might recommend (we're looking at indie/alt/rock)? Thanks John

      Hi John, You couldn't go wrong going for the rock stuff at Sidecar in Plaça Reial... the bonus is that the square is quite nice and if it doesn't live up to the billing there are plenty of other bars in the Gothic Quarter to explore. There is also the indie and rock club called Magic in the Born area. Take a look at both and figure out which one tickles your fancy. Otherwise, and I can really sympathize with you on this one, there aren't too many clubs playing rock music - my favourite :( Ash

      Hi Christopher, Thanks so much for the compliments! Well, I've looked high and low to see if there's a free guest list option and even the biggest BCN club sites don't seem to offer it... so I imagine to get on the guest list you'll have to know somebody there or become a celebrity ;) I'll keep an eye out though, this is something I would like to be able to offer my readers.
