From its world famous nightlife to its one-of-a-kind Catalan culture, Barcelona is the perfect place for a bachelorette party.
There’s so much to see and do in the Catalan capital, and the electric vibe lends itself perfectly to a night out on the town (or a whole weekend of bachelorette fun!). Get ready for a bachelorette party in Barcelona you (and the bride-to-be!) will never forget! Here are five of our favorite suggestions.
1. Take a food tour
One of our favorite ideas for a bachelorette party in Barcelona is to take a food tour with the girls! We offer a wide variety of award-winning foodie experiences the whole group will love. If your bachelorette getaway is a day- or weekend-long affair, start it off on a delicious note with one of our daytime tours! On our Tastes & Traditions of Barcelona Tour, you’ll eat your way around two authentic neighborhoods in the city center. Another great daytime option is our Gracia Neighborhood Food Tour, which will take you off the beaten path and into one of Barcelona’s most magical neighborhoods.
Is an evening tour more your style? Not a problem! Step back into the glitzy and glamorous Barcelona of the past on our Tapas, Taverns & History Tour. If you’re interested in drinking your way around Spain without leaving Barcelona, our Evening Tapas & Wine Tour is an elegant yet unpretentious option for a classy evening.
Looking for an even more intimate, exclusive experience? One of our private tours might be what you’re after!
2. Experience Barcelona’s iconic nightlife
If there’s one thing everyone knows about Barcelona, it’s that the nightlife here is unbeatable. And after all, it wouldn’t be a bachelorette party—especially not a bachelorette party in Barcelona—without a trip to the clubs! The party never really stops here, as there’s so much going on from dusk until dawn.
After dinner, start your night off on a perfect note with drinks at one of Barcelona’s best rooftop bars. From there, it’s time to hit the clubs (be aware that locals won’t show up until well after midnight!). With so many discotecas to choose from, it’s no wonder why a night out in Barcelona is above and beyond a night out anywhere else. Once you’ve partied until the sun comes up, stop for some churros con chocolate on your way home!
3. Enjoy the beach and a private boat trip
If your bachelorette party in Barcelona will take place during the sunny summer months, head to one of the world-famous beaches! Everyone knows and loves Barceloneta, but for a more exclusive experience, check out a nearby, lesser-known beach to get away from the crowds. The Costa Brava is dotted with so many amazing beaches most tourists have never heard of. Grab your sunscreen and towels and get ready for a day of fun in the sun!
Looking for an even more luxurious experience? Consider a private sailing experience around Barcelona’s harbor. Companies like Orsom Barcelona offer exclusive boat trips on a private catamaran with free snacks and drinks on board. It’s the perfect way to work on your wedding tan while enjoying unbeatable views of Barcelona’s skyline from out on the water!
4. Shop ’til you drop
Barcelona’s shopping scene is unrivaled almost anywhere else in the world! A bachelorette party in Barcelona wouldn’t be complete without a shopping spree through one of the city’s most iconic districts. Check out some of the unique boutiques and handicraft shops in Plaça de Sant Josep Oriol for more unique finds (and don’t miss the art show that takes place here every weekend!). For more high-end designer labels, you’ll want to check out Avinguda Diagonal.
5. Recreate some of Barcelona’s most delicious delicacies
Take advantage of your unique location to learn something new during your bachelorette party in Barcelona! After eating your way around town on your food tour, you might be wondering how you can recreate some of those traditional recipes at home. Luckily, there are tons of great cooking classes in Barcelona! From classics like paella to modern, innovative tapas, you can learn to cook just about anything.
While eating your way around Barcelona, you’ll probably come across champagne’s lesser-known Spanish cousin, cava. This sparkling Catalan wine is the perfect addition to your bachelorette celebrations. Take things up a notch and learn how to make your own cava! Barcelona Life offers a cava making experience that will whisk your group away from the bustling city and out to a tranquil country vineyard. There, you’ll learn about the fascinating history of this bubbly drink and even try your hand at making some yourself!

Life is too short to speak one language and stay in one place. In 2015, this philosophy took her from familiar Ohio to sunny southern Spain. Usually drinking tinto de verano, reading Lorca, or attempting to dance flamenco (not all at once). Follow her blog, Viatic Couture, for more.
