Barcelona New Year Celebrations

Barcelona New Years Eve 2015

New Years Eve Barcelona 2015. Happy New Year! Celebrate 2015/2016 New Year in Barcelona at some of the best NYE Parties and events in Barcelona for NYE 2014. See also our listing for the official Barcelona New Year Celebration at Barcelona's Magic Fountain at the foot of Montjuic hill. You might also be interested in our 10 top Barcelona New Year clubs and restaurants which you can find below . Please note that we have only listed some top Barcelona clubs and hotels. There are New Year parties all over Barcelona. 

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 celebrations is not a party but a public family event and is free and open to everyone. The celebration will consist of a main stage with two big screens for the NY countdown and then a firework display at midnight.  There will be human tower building, live music and the Magic Fountain light and water display with New Year Fireworks. Get there 30 minutes or 60 minutes before for a place close to the fountain, but you can see the fireworks from the whole avenue for sure, so I would not worry too much about where to stand.

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  Please note that there is no central fireworks display in Barcelona for New Years Eve and fireworks are not really part of the New Year traditions in Barcelona. Many people in Spain watch the live New Year's TV broadcast at midnight from the central square in Madrid called "Puerta Del Sol in Madrid" and in Barcelona around 30.000 people gather on Plaza Catalunya at midnight but really only to celebrate the New Year with other people as there are no official events, although there will be some security and public toilets. Please note that on Plaza Catalunya that only plastic bottles and glasses and cans are allowed. Bottles and glasses made of glass will be confiscated by the police control.

The Torre Agbar tower has a New Years light show at midnight, but without fireworks or music, so not very festive.

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 at a time at each chime of the clock as it counts down to midnight and then you toast with Cava!  The Barcelona Metro will be in operation all night on 31.12.2012. 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.
