Barcelona is famous for its lively nightlife, a great deal of which happens in extremely fancy new bars and discotheques that indulge in new music. Well, this is not the place for that. Magic is one of the most classic discotheques in the city – more than 30 years running, from what I’ve heard – and still lavishing in one and only thing, rock.
This doesn’t mean that the resident DJs is stuck somewhere else during the past decade, but that strong guitars and heavy drums are the usual sound of the night. It also has another characteristic: it’s open until late, which makes it the perfect place to end up after a long night out.
Another great thing is the crowd reflects all the kinds of people that love rock music – age is completely irrelevant. As do the outfits and preferences in drinks: they have a reasonably good selection of beers and spirits, not extremely expensive. Most of the times, a drink is included in the entrance (which you don’t have to pay if you get there before midnight).
The place is not huge and it can get almost steamy, so be prepared… and rock your way throughout the night.
