Club Otto Zutz is founded in far 1985 and exists more than 30 years, following always new trends and innovations! When it was opened, it represented some kind of revolutionary concept, of something new, never seen before in Barcelona nightlife. It was built in a place of an old textile factory, in Lincoln Street, therefore, the factory has been converted into a club, what is something that wasn’t so usual in Spain in the ‘80s. Open spaces decorated with hard materials, concrete, cast iron pillars, iron beams, and ceilings vaulted denim, has made an atmosphere of industrial environment of Berlin or New York. This type of clubs, built inside of old factories or industrial halls, had already started to be all the more present in European metropolis in the ‘80s, so the idea to create similar industrial environment also in Barcelona was a real shot! Among many luxuries and elegant clubs of Barcelona, when you can meet celebrities and where the door policy and the prices are very high, the club such is Otto Zutz, more modest and simple, more devoted to people who prefer simple evenings, simple dress code and less glamour – so-called hipsters, was real refreshment in Barcelona nightlife. Not everyone wants to pay 500$ for one bottle, being surrounded by elegant people and security that has a strong entrance policy. For a long time Otto Zutz Club is a symbol of Barcelona underground scene and of its social working class, so similar to working class in other European big cities, such as Berlin, London, Edinburgh, Dublin, Manchester, Hamburg, etc.
The truth is that the Latino way of fun is a bit different of other European cultures – Latino means – beauty, fashion, nice music, good food and that is why this type of clubs started later in countries such as Italy and Spain, but there is always a class of hipsters and artists who prefer to have their own space for changing ideas and spending nights. Large old abandoned spaces became, therefore, ideal spaces for making clubs in all Europe for the people who make part of this social class.
Even that the idea at the beginning was to avoid glamour and exaggeration of the high – class, the Club started to be visited in several years also by many famous visitors, especially from 1992, when the Olympic Games took place in Barcelona, and when the owners decided to convert the third floor in open roof, perfect for those who want to pass hours overlooking the city. The third floor became privé, called “Los altos” (The high), so the celebrity, high class and international visitors started visiting also this club. Besides this, the club strives to keep its first concept - the spaces which are not glamorous and elegant, keeping more industrial and urban concept and décor.
The Club is divided into 4 rooms: Main Room, Commercial Room, Hot Room, Los Altos. Main Room is the most visited, where the guests can enjoy the best residential and international DJs and Hip-hop and R&B hits.
