Sun. Sand. Sea. And when the sun goes down in Barcelona, the partying begins - and doesn't stop until it's up again! With vibrant bars, restaurants and nightclubs, it's easy to see why Barcelona is in the top three hen night destinations; it's the ideal place to relax and celebrate in equal measure! In between visiting various areas and exploring a full range of Spanish bars we've got some great, group-pleasing entertainment options, such as our booze cruise - take to the Spanish waters for an unforgettable cruise - or an ice bar experience where you'll be served cocktails in real ice glasses! Have a look at all our options above and talk to the girls to see which they'd prefer. Hen nights in Barcelona are nothing short of sizzling!
In the evening the city is at its best, and hen groups in Barcelona are spoilt for choice on where to go. Las Ramblas is one of the liveliest sites in the city, packed with bars from start to finish. From Boadas, allegedly the oldest cocktail bar in the city, to Blondie, a retro 80's bar decorated in electric neon, Las Ramblas covers all your pre-drinks needs - try Yakuta, which serves a free shot with each cocktail. The nearby Ravel district has a lot of fun, cheap bars good for getting the party started! Aurora has a happy hour that runs until 11, so it's a great place to begin the night. Port Olimpic has some of the coolest bars around. Large groups might want to head to Pippermint, who serve massive pitchers ideal for sharing amongst friends. If you're looking for something a little more manageable, try Chupitos. Their menu includes over 200 shots, and no descriptions of any - just tell the bartender what you like, and he'll find something for you! Remember to drink responsibility.
Looking to impress with your salsa dancing? You'll have plenty of opportunities to strap on your dancing shoes! Port Vell alone has 5 nightclubs, and the rest of the city doesn't lag behind either, with around 20 in the city centre. If you want to get your glam rags on, and rub shoulders with celebrities, head back to Port Olimpic - Lady Gaga and Madonna have both held after-parties in clubs around here. The clubs in Barcelona are amongst the most glamorous and glitzy in the world, and with podium dancers, cheap drinks, and closing times well in to the morning, don't be afraid to let your hair down and have a fantastic night out!
A hen night in Barcelona isn't only about the alcohol - Barcelona is at its best at night for everyone, not just the club crowd. Las Ramblas might be bar central, but with a host of street performers like clowns, acrobats and flamenco dancers lining the roads, it's an entertaining place for anyone to visit after dark. For a spectacular water and illumination show, the Magic Fountain is absolutely breathtaking, and sure to be the highlight of your Barcelona hen night.
As you'd expect, there are dozens of different tapas places to try in Barcelona, and we'd highly recommend you try a few - they're cheap, they're delicious, and they're a lot of fun to share with the girls! Quimet & Quimet is excellently priced, and serves a variety of gourmet tapas, as well as the simple and familiar dishes. Ravel has a variety of good, authentic Spanish food in trendy restaurants to try - if you're looking for something a bit more filling than tapas to line your stomachs, Cera 23 is an excellent bet for Mediterranean/Spanish fusion dishes, or Can Lluis for traditional Catalan meals in a contemporary setting.
The Barcelona Bus Turistic can take you to every tourist destination you can imagine, or the metro can cover most other areas, so transport shouldn't be an issue - though if you need transfers to activities you've booked with GoHen, just ask and we can arrange those for you. Otherwise, walking around Barcelona is an excellent way to see the city and experience the Spanish lifestyle, provided you remember your sun cream!
A Barcelona hen night is as good as it can get - from day to night, Barcelona offers an incredible array of activities and adventures for hens to enjoy, as well as a world class clubbing scene! Several million tourists flock to this city every year, and you can experience everything they do and more with a GoHen weekend. We've got dozens of activities to do in Barcelona - why not get a taste of local culture and go for a tapas and flamenco hen night. You and the girls will unlock your inner sexy senorita in time to hit the clubs. Or you could try one of our packages to get the entire weekend planned in one go. The Spa-celona package includes a day at a luxury Spanish spa, or try the Out At Sea package to charter your own private yacht. With extras like guided pub crawls and guestlist nightclub entry included in both, it's a hen night that will stay with the girls for the rest of their lives!
