The atmosphere is as fresh and relaxed as the Ibiza one, with beautiful sleek white furniture, natural wood finishes, and gently glowing neon style lighting.
That said, the VIP lounge is a bit on the small side compared to other clubs in the area, making it perfect for an intimate night out, but a bit cramped for a very large party. If there's more than four or five of you, you probably want to book one table for every four people. Especially if you like to make new friends and treat them to drinks when you hit the club.
The staff and the guests alike are young and beautiful, and the dress code means that everyone looks spectacular. If you are into people watching, the combination of the great dance tunes and the excellent standards mean you will really enjoy the view.
The music at the venue is a mix and match of great party tunes, with different themes on different nights. Earlier on in the night the music is quieter, giving you time to mingle, chat, get your drinks, and warm up for the night ahead. As the night progresses the music gets louder, with stronger party beats and a bigger focus on danceable tunes. The best time to hit the dance floor is between one and two in the morning.
Due to recent changes in the law they are no longer allowed to play music outdoors, however the music inside is loud enough to be enjoyed on the patio if you would rather dine or party out under the stars.
The drinks are fairly reasonably priced for such a high-class venue, and if you are looking for a full bar in Barcelona and the usual Pacha bottleservice experience, you will not be disappointed. You can also order hookah, which is a bit more expensive than at dayclubs and bars nearby, but considering the quality of the venue it's well worthwhile.
A selection of food is also available, with Asian and Mediterranean options available. Although the wines are pretty good, the highlight are the cocktails by far, with a number of speciality and signature offerings that will delight you. All the seafood is fresh and local, and the dishes are reasonably priced for the great quality you are getting.
To get in, you need to be on the guestlist and ideally have a table reserved and/or arrive early. The venue gets absolutely packed as the night progresses and there is not much chance of getting in at the door, even on their more low key and relaxed nights.
The minimum age for entry, like in most European venues, is 18. Also like most of the best European nightclubs, the venue opens until the early hours of the morning. So if you want to party all night long, then this is a great spot to spend the night at.
