We have listed our choice of 10 top Barcelona New Years Eve clubs and restaurants, which you can find further down this page. Please note this is our top 10 and of course there are many New Year parties and dinners to choose from in Barcelona. 

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 will 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. 


New Years Eve countdown Barcelona


New Year Celebration

The official Barcelona New Years Eve event is called the Barcelona New Year Chimes celebration / Celebración de Fin de Año en las Fonts de Montjuïc - also called the Campanadas de Fin de Año en Montjuïc. 

Please note that this is a New Year Celebration event and not a party.

It's a public family event and is free to attend. It takes place at the Font Màgica de Montjuïc (Montjuïc Magic Fountain) near Plaza Espanya and is a multimedia explosion of light and colour.

It opens with music from 9.30pm. The New Year Chimes show starts at 11.30pm and lasts 45 minutes. 

The celebration will consist of a main stage with two big screens for the countdown and then a firework display at midnight. 

The Barcelona New Year show event usually features traditonal human tower building, concerts, music and fireworks combined with the Magic Fountain light and water display. 

IMPORTANT: This event is free and everyone arriving from 22.30 onwards gets a free bag of 12 grapes to eat as the chimes countdown to the New Year. 

Alcohol is not on sale and glass bottles and glasses are not permitted in the spectators area. 

There will be entrance checks to make sure that bottle and glass containers will not be admitted. 

It is recommended that you arrive by metro to station Espanya - lines 1 & 3


New Year's parties at Barcelona clubs


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 more 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 the top Barcelona New Year parties below, but there are many other New Year parties, so we suggest you visit our Barcelona nightlife directory.   

It's a Spanish New Year traditions to wear red underwear for luck. Another Spanish New Year Tradition is to eat twelve grapes just before midnight.

You can buy little tins of 12 grapes but we recommend fresh grapes which taste better. Seedless are best because you will have to eat one grape at each chime of the clock as it counts down to midnight and a new year.

After that if you haven't choked on the grapes you can toast with Spanish Cava sparkling wine.
