6 of Spain’s Best Discotecas

Category: Articles

Spain is famous for its welcoming and vibrant nightlife, and among the many things to do and see after the sun sets in this picturesque country are its scores of fun and lively nightclubs, featuring dancing, cocktails and socializing into the wee hours of the night (or morning).

Many international students attend Universities in Spain just to get a taste of the Spanish nightlife. If you plan to visit the beautiful country of Spain in the near future, here are just a few of the exciting nightclubs you may want to check out:

Nightclubs in Madrid

Fabrik

Located on the outskirts of Madrid, the renowned Fabrik Nightclub is housed in a cavernous old industrial warehouse, one that has been fitted out with all the latest gadgets that are guaranteed to please a younger crowd favoring house and techno music.

Guests of Fabrik can expect to encounter a throbbing 60kw sound system and a main hall with a triple-level stage designed for the extravagant dance groups and go-go performances. Add in the massive megatrons squirting freezing nitrogen into the crowd, the colored lasers, six giant video screens and even the outside terrace—complete with a river running through it—and you have a party atmosphere like none other.

Fabrik’s out-of-the-way location, while not necessarily convenient, at least limits the possibility of noise complaints, allowing the DJs to rock the place from sunset until dawn.

Tupperware

Located in the Malasana neighborhood of Madrid, Tupperware is a pop culture-themed alternative rock bar that is popular among Madrid’s twenty-something crowd. Tupperware’s resident and guest DJs spin mostly rock and pop music; music that runs the gamut from yesterday’s mainstream to today’s indie tunes.

Patrons of Tupperware will know they are in the right place when they reach the nightclub’s colorful facade and especially when they step inside to catch a view of the bright decorations, featuring lots of pink colored accents, including old, hollowed out televisions that serve as the base for dioramas with different plastic figures. While you’re there, make sure to check out the interesting mural on the lower floor’s back wall.

Nightclubs in Barcelona

Eclipse

Located in Spain’s second-largest city of Barcelona, Eclipse is the perfect spot for those looking for a swanky, sexy and chic experience. The nightclub is part of Barcelona’s Hotel W and is known not only for its innovative and delicious cocktails, but also for its gorgeous views overlooking the Mediterranean and Barcelona’s coast line.

Eclipse is considered the place to be if you want to be seen with the ‘IT’ crowd. Although their cocktails are slightly on the pricier side, they’re more than worth it. The recipes for each drink are so secretive that you often have no idea what you’re sipping on – you just know that it’s good enough to order seconds.

Marula Cafe

Relatively new to the Barcelona Club scene, Marula Café is a vibrant space that is ideal for hosting concerts, live music and parties. The club specializes in funk and rap music, but also features rock, pop, jazz and other genres as well. Centrally located in the Gothic Quarter, right off of Plaza Tripi and La Rambla, this is a great late night party spot especially on weekends. Marula is sandwiched between a host of other discos and bars as well, including the Tequila, Factory, Macarena and Jamboree, all within a few minutes’ walk of each other if not closer.

Nightclubs in Sevilla

Birdie

Located in beautiful Sevilla, Birdie is one of the best kept secrets of the city.

If one were to pass by this unassuming cafeteria during the day, they would have no idea that Birdie magically turns into an exclusive dance club by night, attracting professionals, singles and anyone who desires to dance the night away. The atmosphere at Birdie is somewhat luxurious, and the mood is all about celebration.

Nightclubs in Malaga

Liceo

Located in the heart of Malaga, Spain, Liceo is housed in a very large building, comprised of two floors and many rooms where people can dance and simply chill out. The venue is filled with a number of bars to keep the drinks flowing, and house music is pumped throughout the club to keep everyone moving. Liceo is generally the choice for the experienced party animals in the country—those that like to keep the celebration going all night long.
