A Guide To Your Barcelona Hen Weekend
Where to Drink in Barcelona
It's Barcelona, c'mon - you know there's plenty of places for hens to relax with a drink in hand. There's no particular area that stands out for the most bars, they're literally on every street. But, each neighbourhood has a distinct vibe to cater for every hen!
Eixample is big and boozy with all the best nightclubs. You're never more than about 50m from a luxury bar so get those walking boots on for a bar crawllllllllllll. We LOVE the Gothic Quarter. Yes, for the architecture, but also the splendid array of watering holes to rehydrate after a day of hen-activity. The establishments can be strange but in the best way. The weirder the bar, the better the drink deals, baby!
For trendy hens, you'll want to check out El Horn because it's where the coolest locals hang out. Think basement bars and plush, luxe seating or minimalist visions.
Sights & Sounds
Sights - There really is so much to see in this beautiful and dazzling city. Our top tips for any Barcelona hen weekend include; Magic Fountain of Montjuic which comes alive at night. Park Guell, an amazing if slightly crazy designed by the famous Antoni Gaudi. Plus the Gothic Quarter which is not just beautiful, it also has some great shopping that's not to be missed.
Sounds - If you want a real flavour of Barcelona then an evening of Salsa & Tapas could be "muy beuno". As well as plenty of tasty tapas, you'll get a sizzling hot salsa dance class. Once you've learnt all the moves we'll arrange entry to a top salsa club before moving on with guest list entry at one of the cities hottest clubs.
Shopping in Barcelona
Barcelona's most famous street Las Ramblas is your avenue to some great shopping hotspots. Off the main street, you'll find the winding avenues that are packed with all manner of fantastic shops. From there you can head to the Gothic Quarter and Passieg de Gracia, both of which are packed with enough fantastic boutiques, shoe, leather and jewellery shops to keep even the most devout shopaholic busy.
Getting Around Barcelona
Barcelona is certainly a big city but it has excellent transport links. We recommend you grab Hola BCN travelcards which give you unlimited travel during your stay. You can use the tickets on buses, trains and the metro/underground system.
Barcelona is so much more than gorgeous hot weather and some of Europe's best shopping streets. Of course, it is worth pointing out that it really is packed with both (shoe fans will LOVE this city!) but GoHen have heaps of amazing activities. Our friendly team can help you plan your own custom hen weekend package.
If you think Barcelona is hot during the day, you should see it at night! Without doubt one of the best party cities in the world, the bars and clubs are a totally different kind of clubbing experience to back home. Be aware that most of the bars and clubs don't even start to get busy until long after midnight. Ask our team about everything from BBQ Cruises and Hunky Butlers in the Buff, to Restaurant Reservations and Guest List Nightclubbing.

Quickfire Barcelona Hen Do FAQs
What are the Best Nights to Party in Barcelona?
Barcelona doesn't sleep, so you could go out any night of the week and have one of the best nights out you've ever had. Even so, the biggest and best nights out are definitely Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
What Time do Bars Shut in Barcelona?
Bars in Barcelona tend to close around 2 am on weekdays and 3 am on weekends, so you can enjoy the buzzing atmosphere until late and then head over to a club until sunrise (clubs open at midnight and rarely close before 6-7 am).
Can I Drink in Public in Barcelona?
Drinking alcohol in the streets is forbidden and the Guàrdia Urbana (Urban Guards) patrol every night. If they catch you, they'll confiscate your drinks and they could fine you up to €50 (£43) which is definitely not a great way to start your evening. The solution is simple – share a bottle of wine in your accommodation, then pause the drinking for the commute, and resume once you've reached the bar!
How Expensive is Clubbing in Barcelona?
The average price to enter a club is between €12-€20 (£10-£17) with a beer costing around €6 (£5) and a cocktail around – €12-€13 (£10-£11). It might sound a little pricey, but there are ways around this such as 2-4-1 hours and some clubs offer a free drink included with your entry fee. Avoid the hassle and get great deals by booking your guestlist nightclubbing with GoHen.
Is Barcelona Safe for Women?
As a very popular tourist destination, Barcelona draws pickpockets and bag snatchers, but serious crime is very rare.

37 Reasons Why Barcelona Rocks!

Karaoke Bar - Reckon you can belt out the hits of Shakira better than she can? Head to Barcelona's amazing Karaoke Bar.
Siesta - It's totally acceptable to enjoy a few cheeky glasses of wine in the sun before falling asleep in the afternoon in Barcelona. Glass of vino and a kip? We need to start a petition to make it more acceptable in England because when we tried it at work...
Eclipse - The Eclipse bar just feels like it was made for a Barcelona hen do with its plush pink décor and glamorous design features. Couple that with some of the best views going and you're onto a winner, ladies!
St. Jordi's Day - Also known as 'The Day of the Rose', St. Jordi's Day is the Catalan equivalent of our Valentines Day. Men present the women with a rose and in return receive a book.
World Book Day - St. Jordi's Day also served as the inspiration for World's Book Day. So you can thank the Catalans for providing the chance for your annual appearance at word dressed as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter.
Gerard Pique - As if Shakira didn't already have it all, she's also got this piece of Barcelona-born man candy for a husband! He plays for FC Barcelona and he's absolutely espléndido.
Fiestas de la Mercè - Party in the streets! This fantastic festival is held in the honour of the city's patron saint, it's like St. Patrick's in Barcelona!
In the beginning... - Legend has it that Hercules built Barcelona, although that 'fact' is widely disputed, we like to think that the story can Go the Distance...
Segway Tour - Experience the highlights of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter while riding fun-to-use Segways, once the tour's stopped, you won't want to get off!
La Sagrada Familia - This beautiful church is a cultural landmark in the Catalan capital. It's a must-see attraction on your Barcelona hen weekend. It's taken 200 years to build... And still isn't finished!
Columbus Monument - Barcelona's equivalent to Nelson's Column is seriously impressive. Plus Columbus takes a really good selfie, who knew?!?
Las Ramblas - As its name suggests, it's a fantastic ramble up this long avenue. Cafes, bars, street artists and the adjoining roads and alleys lead through to some of the city's best shops.
Haunted Barca - The Catalan city has its fair share of ghosts and ghouls, but thankfully it seems they're largely confined to the abandoned metro stations beneath the ground, where it's said that shadows, shapes and disembodied screams have all been witnessed... Gulp!
Gaudi's Alive House - 'It's aliiiiiiiiiive!' Catalan architect Gaudi designed this phenomenal structure that actually resembles a living organism that seems to move as you explore it's weird and wonderful interior.
Going for gold - Barcelona is the first and only city in the world to have won a Royal Gold Medal for Architecture. The honour is usually bestowed on an individual, but the gents at the Royal Institute of British Architects felt that the city was just so drop dead gorgeous it deserved an award of its own.
Opium - This fabulous club is Barcelona's opiate for the city's party-loving masses. On the weekend, the Catalan glitterati let their hair down on these tiles for an energetic evening of floor-filling tunes.
Big city - Barcelona is Europe's largest metropolis on the Mediterranean coast, and the second largest city in Spain, meaning that this is probably your best chance of finding the sizzling Spanish señor of your Sangria induced fantasies!
Tapas 24 - Traditionally Spanish and tantalizingly tasty, this is the ideal sharing food and Tapas 24 is one of the best in the city!
Strictly Come Dancing! - Flamenco Dancing is one of the sexiest dance styles ever! We know, we watched Peter Andre do it on telly. You can learn the sultry art form during your Barcelona hen weekend!
The Lingo - While most people will speak Spanish during your stay, you might bump into people who speak Catalan instead, talk about confusing!?!?
Clumsy Catalonia - On average, a car accident occurs every 19 seconds in the city Monday to Thursday, with an accident every 16 seconds occurring on weekends. We'd rather walk!
Portal de l'Àngel - Barcelona's main shopping street is brilliant, but it's also one of Spain's most crowded. More than 3000 pedestrians venture here every hour. That's a lot of shoes!
Ice Bar - One of the coolest bars in town, literally! The Ice Bar boasts jaw-dropping ice sculptures, and you can enjoy tasty cocktails in glasses made of ice.
Eiffel Tower - Nope, we're not getting our wires crossed. The Eiffel Tower was originally supposed to be in Barcelona, but the Catalan government didn't want to pay so much money for such an 'ugly' monument. Bad call guys!
Danza Barcelona - Whether you're throwing shapes to smash hits in the main room or getting down to hip-hop sounds on the open air terrace you'll have a fantastic time in this massively popular club.
Tickets - This curiously named restaurants is one of the most prized tickets in town. Dining here means class and sophistication, so make sure you wear your finest frocks senoritas.

Dry Martini - Your bunch of sophisticated, cocktail-drinking hens will love Dry Martini, a delightfully suave bar full of handsome gents and classic concoctions that've never tasted quite so divine.
Skateboarders - If Avril Lavigne's smash hit Sk8er Boi resonated with you from an early age then you'll be pleased to know that skating's all the rage in Barcelona, and some of the boys riding the boards are actually pretty cute...
Boca Chica - Get your cocktail-loving chica's down to this fabulous bar for properly tasty drinks and some of the hottest guys in town. That little black dress is a dead cert for Boca Chica.
