The Carpe Diem Lounge Club is one of the best dayclub and nightclub experiences in Barcelona. Located right on the waterfront, it is the self proclaimed finest club in Spain, boasting a fanbase that will vouch for it any day of the week.

The key to the Carpe Diem Club's success is pampering. Basically anything you need to feel like a VIP, they have. Great beats, great drinks, great service, great food, great massages, great everything. You will be able to relax in true style.
The venue itself is decorated with a Moroccan feel to it, embracing that medley of Mediterranean, African, and Arabian culture that makes Morocco so unique. Truly delightful to behold. And the seating is plush and comfortable, with great views of the beachfront outside, and of the dance floor inside.
For the sights and experience, especially earlier in the night, the outside seating area is the best option. Great views, the sounds and scents of the sea, and a cool breeze. As the night moves on it can get a bit chilly outside, though. Inside the venue is very cosy and much warmer. There are also heaters outside, if you prefer the outdoor atmosphere as the night progresses.
Service is some of the best of any Barcelona club. Where else can you get bottle service, some great fusion cuisine, and a shoulder massage at once? Bliss.
The menu offers both food and drinks at reasonable prices. The cuisine is truly international, with a little bit of everything from around the world, but mostly embracing Asian, Mediterranean, and Arabian dishes. The Arabian cuisine is very good, and inkeeping with the theme of the club itself.
Bear in mind that after dinner service the whole venue gives way to the nightclub part of the night, and only light bites and drinks are served from then onwards. The relaxed lounge atmosphere remains, but the music gets pumped up, to encourage you to drink and dance.
The full bar offers a wide range of different big name bottles, as well as bottle service options, which you can also reserve in advance. Their cocktails are classic and refreshing, and the Spanish wine selection is pretty good, although we're more inclined to recommend the high end champagne for a truly glamorous experience.
The prices at the CDLC nightclub are variable, but generally reasonable for the quality you are getting. Expect to pay extra for massages, coat check, etc. All in all, most customers feel that the prices were great for the quality they received.
The venue gets pretty busy and, naturally, the dress code is different for the club than for the restaurant. Just because you had lunch at the Carpe Diem Lounge Club restaurant does not mean you will get into the Carpe Diem Lounge Club nightclub dressed the same way. What is more, because of how insanely busy it can get, you aren't really guaranteed a place in the club unless you are on the guest list or have a reservation.
