There are plenty of things to do after dinner in Barcelona, whether you're looking for quiet evenings down by the marina or lively nights out clubbing or something in between. With everybody fully rested after a siesta and fully fed after dinner, the city really comes alive after the sun sets.

    Barcelona's famed architecture takes on a different light at night, and whether you want to sit back and take in live music or art displays, or take part in some light exercise to walk off the tapas, you're spoilt for choices year-round. We've put together a list of the best things you can do after dinner in Barcelona to help you plan your trip.


    Barcelona rooftop bars

    Overlook the nighttime cityscape with a cocktail or a cava

    Rooftop bars are arguably the best venues for admiring Barcelona’s striking architecture. The city has a wide array of rooftop terraces and bars across all districts, each of which offers picturesque views and excellent vibes.

    Overlooking Barcelona Cathedral and the Gothic Quarter, Panoramic Terrace at Hotel Colon is a great place for live music and drinks throughout the afternoon and evening. In Example, La Terraze at Hotel Negresco Princess is known for its infinity pool. If you're really looking to party, check out Eclipse on the 26th floor of W Barcelona. Here, you can enjoy a night of dancing with excellent views of the Mediterranean Sea.


    Sunset cruise

    Sail the city’s coastline in front of a Mediterranean sunset

    A sunset cruise takes you across the Mediterranean Sea, one of Barcelona’s most striking natural settings. Fittingly, most boats and yachts set sail from Port Olimpic, which hosted the 1992 Olympic’s sailing competitions.

    You can book a table on a shared dining cruise with up to 12 other passengers. If you want to treat that special someone to a romantic evening, booking your own private vessel is a popular option. Those looking for more of a buzz can sail at sunset with live DJs on a champagne sunset cruise.

    Music and lights combine for a dazzling dance of water

    Barcelona's Font Magica de Montjuïc (Magic Fountain of Montjuïc) is a popular landmark in Avinguda Maria Cristina. While it’s beautiful any time of the day, it really comes alive after sunset. During peak season, it hosts dazzling music and light show several times per night.

    The fountain lights up with a show of synchronised colour, music, and water jets that shoot up to a height of 50 metres. The 15-minute-long displays are very popular, so get there early to guarantee the best view.
