Barcelona has a vibrant LGBT scene with a lot of restaurants and bars, most of them located in a district of L’Eixample.
So while in Barcelona, I really wanted to go to at least one lesbian bar. I didn’t want to go out alone, but I also knew that no one from the hostel was interested in going to a gay club. So what did I do then? I used Tinder and found a girl who was keen to show me around. I have mixed feelings about Tinder, but I’ve found it very useful while traveling. It’s a great way to find local people to hang out with you.
On Friday night we went to a nightclub called Aire which is one of the four Arena bars. The other three Arena bars are called Arena VIP, Arena Sala Classic, and Arena Sala Madre, and all of them are located within walking distance from each other. You can check out their website here. In Aire, they have a dance floor and music is a combination of English and Spanish hits. An entry fee to Aire is 5€ on Fridays and 6€ on Saturdays including a free drink.
An insider tip: Go to Aire first, and from there you’ll get a free entry ticket to Arena VIP. That way you can visit both bars and only pay for one.
La Sue is also a popular spot for lesbians. It’s a small bar, and they also offer tapas for food. Check out this place before you head to Aire!
