Whether you’re a fervent music lover or an amateur musician on the lookout for a music venue, we’ve got you covered. Barcelona’s buzzing nightlife has jam sessions and live music ready for you every night of the week, from Monday to Sunday, and we’ve listed the best ones below.

Monday: Jamboree – WTF Jam Sessions

This jam session has existed for 12 years now, and it is probably the most notorious one in Barcelona. Every Monday evening, this popular venue opens up with a musical act and continues throughout the night with the musical interventions of the crowd. From the smooth pace of jazz classics all the way to the unrestrained rhythm of funk, this jam session has got music for all tastes and preferences.

Harlem Jazz Club is a small bohemian venue located in the narrow little streets behind Barcelona’s cathedral. Every Tuesday, you will be able to watch brilliant blues and swing improvisations by talented musicians, and if you feel up to it, you can even jam along with them.

Wednesday: Taller de Músics – JazzSí

If you’re planning on going to JazzSímake sure you arrive ahead of time in order to catch a seat. Even on a Wednesday afternoon, this small venue is packed with people who cramp up in the staircase when all the seats are taken. For those of you who suffer from stage fright, this warm and friendly atmosphere will make you feel at ease and boost your confidence while you play your favorite tune.

Friday: Jazz Man Jazz Club

Jazzheads, brace yourselves! This venue is the perfect place to enjoy a curated selection of all types of jazz. Although the live music sessions take place on Mondays, Thursdays is Vinyl night. Bring that vinyl that has been laying around your house for years, and Jazz Man will give it a spin while you sip on a tasty cocktail.

Sunday: Open Mic @ Prize

It is virtually impossible to find an open mic in Barcelona, but TCT has done the work for you. This Vocal Jam takes place every Sunday at Prize Bar, an eclectic underground bar located in Sant Antoni. Whether you are a vocalist or an instrumentalist, you will be able to hop on stage and share your talent with the crowd in a distended, homey atmosphere.
