    Hi,I was there in 2004 and went to an amazing club caled La Paloma You’ll have to check out its adsders and whether it’s still open or not, but if it is and you like to boogie into the night then get yourself down there.Be warned though, it doesn’t really get going until about 1am. Barcelona is definitely a city for the night owl My advice for finding other places is go to an Irish bar (where people will speak English) and ask the locals. They always know best.Barcelona is a great place: You’ll have a ball.Watch out for the prostitutes on Las Ramblas. They’ll have your wallet if you’re not careful.Tim Coventry, UK
