There's more than just Sangria and Cava on offer when it comes to Barcelona's nightlife and array of bars.
It might be Spain’s second-largest city, but what Barcelona lacks in size it certainly makes up for in its mammoth and vast nightlife.
The city's nightlife is not concentrated in one area but instead is broken up in several areas, each boasting a different scene and atmosphere. Meaning, there is something to suit all stag parties and all budgets.
But, with so many options out there you could find yourself getting caught in an overpriced establishment instead of happily drinking your night away.
Our list is here to ensure you and the lads have an epic pub crawl without blowing the budget or ending up in a dive.
If you want to kick start the party and like the sound of cheap shots then you need to head to Espit Chupitos. For anyone that didn’t already know chupito is Spanish for shots and this place has over 600 of them. They also cost less than two quid each!
Their two other bars can be found at Carrer d'Aribau 77 and Carrer del Consell de Cent.
With bench seating and five-litre jugs of beer available, this large barn-style bar is perfect for stag groups wanting to neck down copious amounts of beer, listen to live music and play a game of foosball or pool.
With a five-litre jug of beer or sangria only costing you about £25, this is a great bar to start the night in. There is plenty of room for large groups, plus they play all the big sporting matches on massive screens, so you don't need to miss out on any of the action while you are on your stag do!
If you’re into huge 13-litre pitchers of mixed drinks to share with your friends as well as selecting from a variety of shots then Peppermint is for you.
Making its famous gigantic drinks since 1962 and close to all the action, this is one bar that serves hordes of stag and hen parties night after night. It's a great place to meet other partygoers, especially plenty of hen parties!
The perfect pre-club bar within walking distance from Passeig de Gràcia and Plaça Catalunya. This lively bar has it all including shots for one pound! If shots are not your thing then there is plenty of beer and cocktails available, all at budget prices too.
If it's cheap booze you and the lads are after, you'll find it at Summum during the Barcelona Stag Do!
This one is for the gin lovers because these guys know everything there is to know about gin. Opening in 2011 Bobby Gin has quickly become one of the top gin bars in Barcelona.
You can select from 20 cocktails or let the bartenders make you a tailor-made G&T.
Cocktails start at less than nine quid so don’t worry it won’t break the bank either. If you love gin as much as we do, you won't want to miss this Bobby Gin on the Barcelona stag do.
Found in Barcelona's Barri Gòtic neighbourhood this one is for all the metal, heavy metal and rock fans out there.
The place is decked out with chains and motorcycles hanging from the ceiling, tables in the shape of Fender guitars, and you can also find a life-size figure of Eddie, the zombie-mascot of Iron Maiden.
If you’re up for the challenge and feel hungry you can attempt the burger challenge. Just eat 6 burgers in 25 minutes to win 66 beers for the lads.
If you’re not up for the challenge beers will only set you back £2, so don't worry too much.
While this bar is old fashioned in both name and design there is nothing old-fashioned about the drinks being produced in there. With more than two dozen G&T options tailored to suit anyone’s desires, this little bar in the Gracia district offers some of the best cocktails in Barcelona.
A pint of beer will set you back just over £2.50 and one of their famous cocktails will cost you £7 so it’s a bar you might find yourself spending hours inside.
A natural starting point for newcomers is, of course, the famed Las Ramblas. By day this famous boulevard is bustling with tourists and locals alike and by night the street performers keep the crowds spilling out of the restaurants entertained.
Las Ramblas is a great starting point for dinner and a few drinks in a chilled-out bar before hitting up the more serious nightlife. From Las Ramblas, you'll easily find your self in the Gothic Quarter, which is bursting with cocktails bars, casual clubs, pubs and laid-back bars.
It's important to know that bars don’t get busy until around midnight and stay open until dawn, and the best way to discover Barcelona's nightlife is with a Guided Bar Crawl.
When it comes to clubs, the most popular areas are the El Born District, El Raval, Poblenou, Poble Sec, Montjuïc and Eixample. You'll also find plenty of great places by the beach as well as, some awesome boat parties.
