New Years Eve Barcelona
Barcelona has plenty of options for bringing in the new year with style with no end of parties and events going on throughout the city.

For many, new years eve is the chance to meet up with friends and family and go out for a meal in the early part of the evening which is often then followed by party time, so you'll find many restaurants especially busy on this evening and the bars and nightclubs as well.

There are no end of parties organized at nightclubs and hotels which will either start before midnight or get going soon afterwards to allow everyone the chance to see in the new year first.

At midnight many people will gather at the main squares such as Plaza Catalunya, Plaza Espanya and Plaza Reial and upon midnight eat a grape with each of the 12 clock chimes to bring good luck for the coming 12 months of the new year.

There are no firework displays at midnight but plenty of crowds and enthusiasm instead making any of the squares a popular start of the party night ahead, as many of the clubs really start getting going around 2am.

A popular venue for new years eve is the Spanish Village known as Poble Espanyol which often has a variety of live music entertainment taking place throughout the evening.

New Years Eve takes place annually on the 31st December.

There are events throughout the city such as at the Spanish Village Poble Espanyol, along the beach front, within the squares such as Placa Catalunya as well as parties organized at hotels, restaurants and nightclubs.
