The Catalan capital has a reputation for having one of the best electronic music scenes in Europe, with world-famous festivals such as Sonár attracting some of the biggest DJs around. If you’re in Barcelona and looking to party until the early hours, check out these places for some of the best after-parties in town.

Something of a legend on the clubbing scene, The Moog is where techno music was introduced to Barcelona back in the late eighties and has since become an electronic music institution. The club is open seven days a week with line-ups of some of the best DJs from the world of techno, house and electro. You’ll have to be prepared to queue at weekends as the club doesn’t open until midnight and everyone knows that this is one of the best places to party late in the centre of town.

Open until: 5am at weekends.

Located in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, Marula Café is a laid-back late-night music venue and nightclub which plays a mix of music including house, hip-hop and disco. The crowd is made up of tourists and locals who appreciate the upbeat music and friendly atmosphere – not something that can be said of every club in this part of town. The club is open until late every night of the week and there’s usually a performance followed by a DJ session later on.
