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 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.
