Barcelona New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Webcams, Nightclub Parties, Hotels, Restaurants, Bars

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Barcelona monument

The Catalan capital enjoys a fantastic series of celebrations for New Years Eve, locally called Fin de Aņo, and the events to welcome 2015 will be no exception. With some of the most recognisable landmarks in the world, including the Sagrada Familia cathedral, Placa de Catalunya, the Camp Nou stadium and the famous Las Ramblas street, Barcelona attracts visitors from miles around to enjoy the city's hotels, restaurants and bars and to take in the spectacular midnight fireworks display.

I have actually visited Barcelona in the past, I was fortunate enough to see Newcastle play at the Nou Camp (not so fortunate with the result sadly) and spent a fantastic few days exploring the sights of the city, enough to know that it's a warm and friendly city and somewhere I would very much like to return to one day, on new year's eve in particular would be nice!

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

In terms of fireworks, smaller street parties are very much the tradition in Barcelona city, and rather than one large organised display the skyline tends to be lit by fireworks from venues across the city. Wherever you go you are likely to be invited to join in though, so finding a party for the evening is unlikely to be a problem, especially if you bring your own supply of grapes! (it's traditional to eat them at midnight is seems - 12 each, one for each chime).

A popular venue is the city's famous Plaza Catalunya and many crowds tend to gravitate here throughout the evening, building up to a good sized party by the time midnight arrives. The Torre Agbar skyscraper also traditionally holds a light show to mark the arrival of the new year.

Last year there was the return of an official NYE event organised by the Barcelona City Hall on the Maria Cristina Boulevard, with live music and the much-missed midnight fireworks. The event was free and included a visual display, fireworks and a 15 metre sculpture representing the spirit of the city - we hope to see it return again for NYE 2015 and will provide the details here as soon as any are available,

For the younger crowd, Barcelona has a thriving nightclub scene, with top venues including the Razzmatazz Club, W Hotel's Eclipse Bar, Nitsa, Moog Club and Shoko, and they'll all be competing to hold the liveliest NYE party. Ticket details to follow.

For dining options then tapas is the obvious local speciality, and there are plenty traditional tapas bars on Las Ramblas in particular, but across the city as a whole most cuisines are catered for. For full listings and reviews from all of Barcelona's many bars and restaurants click here.
