Once again Barcelona invites everyone to the official Barcelona New Years Celebration event called the Barcelona New Year Chimes celebration which is at the Font Màgica de Montjuïc (Magic Fountain of Montjuïc) near Plaza Espanya. It starts at 11.30pm and lasts 45 minutes. Spectators stand on the Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina.
The Barcelona New Year celebration at Magic Fountain is not a party but a public family event. It is free and open to everyone. The celebration will consist of a main stage with live music and two big screens for the New Year countdown and then a firework display at midnight which incorporates the Magic Fountain light and water display.
There are many New Year Parties in Barcelona and we will update this page with some of the best parties at top clubs as we get closer to the 31st December. One of the biggest and best is the Noche Vieja New Party at Poble Espanyol Spanish Village on Montjuic hill, which is walking distance from the Magic Fountain.
Scroll down the page to find more new year parties in Barcelona. Many hotels also offer a New Year dinner among them usually at luxury hotels including Hotel Casa Fuster and Hotel Rey Juan Carlos and the Hotel Arts.
Happy New Year is "Feliç Any Nou" in Catalan and "Feliz año nuevo" in Spanish. The 31/12 is called "nochevieja" or "Fin de Año" in Spanish and "Cap d'Any" in Catalan. New Year parties in Spain are often called "cotillones de nochevieja." The Spanish word "cotillón" is the collective name for party paraphernalia like confetti, party horns, party hats and so on. You often see the word "cotillón" on restaurants and club party posters. This means that New Year's party accessories are included in the ticket price.
Tickets NYE Barcelona
Some bars in Barcelona have free entrance on New Years Eve, but most clubs will charge an entrance fee. NYE party prices at bars and clubs vary from as low as €10 to € 40 for a club admission that includes cotillón (party hat etc) and copas (drinks). One, two or even three drinks are usually included in the entrance price. For gala dinner and party the prices range from €75 to €300 depending on the venue. It is always a good idea to book in advance.
As mentioned most of the top Barcelona clubs and many top Barcelona hotels have a New Year Party or Dinner in Barcelona. We have listed a few below, but there are too many parties to list, so we suggest you contact the clubs directly on their websites, which you can find in our Barcelona nightlife directory on BarcelonaYellow.com. Many people in Spain at parties and at home watch the live New Year's TV broadcast at midnight from the central square in Madrid called "Puerta Del Sol in Madrid."
Other Spanish New Year traditions include wearing red underwear for luck and the most important Spanish New Year Tradtion is to eat twelve grapes just before midnight. Use fresh grapes or buy lttle tins with 12 grapes in. You eat one grape at a time at each chime of the clock as it counts down to midnight and then you toast with Cava the sparking Spanish wine which is like champagne! The Barcelona Metro will be in operation all night on 31st December. Please note that some of the clubs have a minimum age requirement of 21 years and some have a strict dress code, so for guys wear shirts and shoes and avoid t-shirts, shorts or trainers.
