Dow Jones- located in L’Eixample and has a drink purchasing concept based on a stock market. The menus are on computer screens all across the top of the bar listing the name and price of each drink (formatted to look like stock prices). Each time a person buys a drink the price slightly increases until the stock market crashes, making each drink extremely cheap for purchasing. The entire bar is decorated with a Wall Street theme.This is not a place to go if someone is looking to meet locals because many study abroad students and Americans visit this bar, but the place has a neat concept that should be experienced by any tourist!

Le Cryanos- This place in L’Eixample seems to be a must for visitors and locals. Believe it or not, at Le Cryanos they let customers pour their own drinks.

Le Journal- Located in Gràcia this is a bar that will most likely be filled with locals. It is small but has a great vibe.

El Born is the perfect neighborhood if you want to duck out of all of the craziness of the city for a day or night. The shopping is great and reasonable, the restaurants in my opinion are some of the best, and lucky you; there is a super fun bar! With very dim and all red lighting, this bar has all of the vibes of a fun club without actually being one. With an entire shelf of gin and incredible mojitos, you are ensured a good time. If the alcohol gets you a little hungry, try some of their in-house tapas and keep the night going.

Being in Barcelona and not going to one of their two Chupitos is basically a crime. With over 600 of the coolest shots you will ever have all at two euro, it is a must do. You can get anything from roasted smores shots (yes they give you marshmallows on sticks) to tequila and Tabasco shots (be warned). Most shots are lit on fire by the talented and fun bartenders, making this bar a cheap way to start the night and get some pure entertainment.

If you’re looking for a fun night filled with people from all over the world, try out one of the two Ovella Negra’s in Barcelona. If you want a more cozy atmosphere with a fireplace, head on over to the one located on Calle de les Sitges, but if you’re looking for a lively beer-hall feel, head on over to Carrer de Zamora. Both offer incredible drink deals including 5L mini taps of sangria or beer for 30 euro, perfect for groups and a guaranteed awesome night out. If you want to avoid that sangria stomachache, I suggest the ‘sangria de cava’ which is mixed with a little bubbly.
