Barcelona Stag Do Reviews
Barcelona is a top place for stags looking to party. Don't just listen to us, though, check out what other stags have said on our reviews page now.

Where to Drink in Barcelona
Vermouth is the drink of Spain and you haven't done Barcelona right if you don't try a glass of this fortified local favourite! There are plenty of places you can find this tipple (literally everywhere) and whatever else you fancy, with every neighbourhood boasting the self-proclaimed 'best bars'!
The Gothic Quarter is easy to get to with slightly stranger-looking establishments, but these are where all the best deals are. The weirder the better if you ask us!
El Born is the trendy option with sophisticated hangouts and vibes of the relaxed kind. Stags who love a delicious cocktail are destined for a great night out here!
The Eixample District is a neighbourhood made for proper partying with big ol' nightclubs and bars on every... single... corner. We're booking our flights as we speak.
Where to Head...
Las Ramblas - By day street artists and tourists flock here to head into the narrow shopping streets on either side of the main route. By night it's party central as this is the main thoroughfare to some of the best bars, clubs and restaurants.
Gothic Quarter - While the tourists stop on Las Ramblas, locals and those in the know are merely passing through on route to the labyrinthine alleys of the Gothic Quarter where you'll find the cream of Barca's bars and clubs. You'll also find a good smattering of the ubiquitous Irish and British pubs.
Port Olimpic - If you're looking for a touch of class and want to rub shoulders with Barca's elite then the city's most famous superclubs are based in the port. Prices can be a little higher so our tip is to eat in the city before partying in the port.
Fake Beaches - Despite the fact they're not real (built purely for the 92 Olympic Games) Barcelona's beaches are stunning. The perfect place for a game of footie, chilling with a beer or three, heading out into the waves or just taking a hangover clearing stroll the morning after the stag before.
A Taste of Barcelona
Eats - Tapas is a great choice for hungry lads as there is something for everyone. Don't expect anything fancy here, Bar Celta offers traditional tapas at fantastic prices where you'll find mostly locals. Another definite hit with the lads is Bacoa, this is a burger bar with a difference and should be on any stag do hit list.
Drinks - This isn't even up for discussion, when in Barcelona get yourselves around a bottle from the Barcelona Beer Company. It's like they've taken the Spanish party-loving lifestyle and packaged it in one handy bottle. Brewing genius!
Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport - try saying that after a few beers.
The airport is situated just 15km from the city centre and there are plenty of buses and trains to the heart of Barca.
If you're looking for the least stressful option, we can arrange for you guys to get private transfers to and from the airport.
No faff. No hassle.
They'll be there waiting for you, ready for your incredible weekend to commence.
Top Alternatives to a Barcelona Stag Do

Warm weather, great sights, ice-cold beers - you should definitely check it out.

Barcelona Stag Activities FAQs
Choosing Your Barcelona Activities
With the huge benefit of being a coastal city, you get the choice of on-land and water-based activities.
That means you get twice the range of activities compared to a normal city!
Whether you want to blast away those hangovers with an adrenaline-pumping adventure or you want to soothe them back to normality with a little bit of luxury, there's something for everyone here.
Check out our range of Barcelona stag activities above and send us an enquiry today.
How Many Activities Should We Do Each Day?
How long is a piece of string?
Yes, it's entirely up to you.
If you want our expert advice, we'd say no more than three activities a day.
That's just so you have enough time to immerse yourselves in the culture (beer), see the sights (beer), and get set for that big night out (beer).
However, some of our bigger Barcelona stag activities may take up more time.
If you're unsure, send us an enquiry with what you're looking at and our Barcelona Specialist will be able to advise.
Are the Activities Central?
A load of our activities will be in the centre of the city, but some of the bigger ones will be slightly further out.
Don't worry if they are, though.
We can arrange transport to and from your accommodation, so you don't have to worry about expensive taxis and all that extra hassle.
StagWeb Go To Barcelona
Meet our Barcelona experts, Lucy and Vicki.
Being our knowledgeable Barcelona Specialist and Event Manager respectively, they've organised epic weekends for hundreds of lads before, many of whom have made it to the Stag Hall of Fame.
To make sure we're across all the latest and greatest stag offerings in the city, we sent them packing to sunny Spain to get the lowdown on all things Barcelona.
The Things You Need to Know...
- Barcelona FC is a major part of the city's identity
- You need to try the tapas – restaurants don't get busy until 9 pm
- Placa Reial Square is great for food and drinks
- Port Olimpic de Barcelona is where you want to head for the clubs
"Barcelona-El Prat Airport is very easy to navigate – we had transfers waiting to pick us up upon arrival.
"However, if you don't have transfers on your booking (StagWeb can help you to arrange them!), the taxi rank is next to the Arrivals door, with members of staff helping people organise your trip to your onward destination."
What Were Your First Impressions?
"We arrived in the evening and were immediately impressed by how busy it was in and around the main plaza, even on a weeknight.
"Due to how vast the central area is, you can be slap bang in the hustle and bustle of La Ramblas, or enjoy a more chilled experience in Barcelona's Old Town, which is still vibrant, and still be in the city's heart.
"Depending on the time of year, you can even spend a day on the beach soaking up the sun's rays with a cold beer in hand."
Where Did You Stay?
"We stayed at the 4* Sunotel Club Central hotel located in the L'Antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample area.
"It was very modern and had everything we needed for our visit.
"Even though the accommodation was not located directly next to the main attractions, it was always easy to either jump on a quick bus or metro for a quick ride to all the party hotspots – which we absolutely did!"
How Easy Was It to Get Around Barcelona?
"Very easy! Having been to a lot of major cities with StagWeb, we would have to say Barcelona's transport network is one of the best we've ever come across – much more reliable than ours.
"Whilst there, we'd just check Google Maps to figure out the best routes and usually end up taking the bus or metro line to our desired destination.
"There are also a series of night buses that run into the early hours and allow you to get back to your accommodation after partying the night away.
"Just one of the many great perks making Barcelona a great stag city!"
"I would recommend that you buy a travel card (which can be used on all forms of transportation) for the duration of your stay in Barcelona. These can either be purchased online or at any metro station, tram stop, or tourist information office."
More information can be found here: https://www.tmb.cat/en/barcelona-fares-metro-bus.
Drinking and Dining in Barcelona...
"Every street block has at least three or four bars and restaurants, so you are very much spoilt for choice!
"One thing to note is that the locals prefer to dine later in the evening, so if you're hoping to have a bit of atmosphere, I would recommend that you book your meal around 8:30-9:00 PM, as you'll notice a difference."
Placa Reial Square - Pl. Reial, 1, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
"Visit the Placa Reial Square as it's filled with a variety of meal and drink hotspots!
"One restaurant that we tried was called Samantha's - it offered tapas at a very reasonable price. Lucy and I walked out of there very full!"
Port Olímpic de Barcelona - Passeig Marítim del Port Olímpic, 08005 Barcelona, Spain
"For late-night bars and nightclubs, we'd recommend that you head to the Port Olímpic de Barcelona area.
"You'll find four or five nightclubs right next to each other along the seafront, so you'll have plenty of choice!"
Ice Bar - Entrada por la playa, Pg. Marítim de la Barceloneta, 38A, 08005 Barcelona, Spain
"On our second evening, we headed to the popular Ice Bar. When I say it was cold, I mean it was cold!
"This was a unique activity and literally everything was made of ice, even the glasses, which meant that your drink turned to a slushy!"
"So many things and so little time to see them all!
"If you're a football fan, we'd recommend starting from the Barça Museum (the FC Barcelona Museum) and doing a self-guided Camp Nou Stadium Tour.
"It gives you the once-in-a-lifetime chance to walk in the steps of the best players to ever kick a ball!
And for when you're not living and breathing football and tapas, you could be filling your itinerary gaps with our thrilling Barcelona stag activities.
