Why Barcelona is the Best Place to Have a Bachelorette Party

Barcelona is known for many things; from its famous party scene to the distinctive Catalan culture, this Spanish city is one of the best places to host a bachelorette party. There is plenty to see in this eclectic city; one day is not enough to experience what it has to offer! Here are a few things you could try when partying in the Catalan capital.

Take your bridesmaids on a food tour

Barcelona has plenty of award-winning food experiences fit for any palate. If you’re a classic bride, you could take the Tastes & Traditions of Barcelona daytime tour, which takes you through the medieval Born district and the fishermen’s quarter, Barceloneta. Enjoy an insider’s tour of the local markets, visit family-run establishments, and try Barcelona’s famous paella. You could also try the Gracia Neighborhood Food Tour, which offers a more offbeat selection with a small village feel.

If you’re more into evening tours, you can book an evening tapas tour. These will take you through a walking history tour and well-loved local bars. If you and your girlfriends are all about cultural experiences, you should try this out!

Experience what the city’s nightlife has to offer

Barcelona’s clubs are famous for brimming with energy. Here, the party does not stop, and you’ll never have a dull moment from dusk to dawn. Start your dinner with a drink at one of Barcelona’s various rooftop bars. Then pop into a discoteca and party the night away! Note, though, that locals don’t show up until after midnight, so be prepared for a very long, high-octane night!

Arrange for a private beach or boat trip

A summertime wedding means enjoying Barcelona’s beaches. You can try Barceloneta for the typical Catalan experience, but you can also check out Costa Brava or one of the other lesser-known beaches if crowds are not your thing. You could even have a private boat trip! Some ticketing companies provide you with access to the best boat parties and cruises, perfect for a bachelorette party.

Shop in Plaça de Sant Josep Oriol or Avinguda Diagonal

Of course, all bachelorette parties need a shopping spree. Aside from culture and parties, Barcelona is also known for its shopping districts. You can find handicraft stores in Plaça de Sant Josep Oriol, where you will score unique gift items or finds for your home. If you’re looking for a luxury shopping experience, head to Avinguda Diagonal instead.

Enrol in a local cooking class

There are classes in Barcelona covering everything from the traditional paella to fusion tapas. If you’re spending an entire weekend in the city, why not spend a couple of hours learning how to cook? Alternatively, you could try out making cava, champagne’s Spanish cousin. There are group trips available that would bring you to nearby vineyards, where you will learn the history of the drink and how to prepare it, definitely an unforgettable experience.


Barcelona is a city that offers plenty of experiences. Whether it’s your first time here or you have several trips under your belt, there is always something new to enjoy or experience here!
