This iconic spot over on Paral.lel is relatively well-known. As quite a large venue with quite a lot on offer, Apolo attracts a wide range of different people from all different styles and all different corners of the globe. Here I could easily write about their wide range of club nights, their large concerts in the main room, or even their shop, but I’d like to look at a specific part of Sala Apolo, a part I have found myself visiting with regularity.
For me it’s been La  de Apolo, the smaller second room, which has brought me over to that side of town so many times. For my taste in music, it’s the place that is most likely to have bands I like from outside of Spain, about once a month or two I find a concert there that I’m really interested in seeing. The venue itself always seems to have decent sound, and a good, wide stage meaning there are rarely issues seeing the action with relative ease. Drinks are unfortunately quite overpriced, but that seems to be the norm for all medium to large venues in Barcelona. More importantly however, the quality of the music is enough to make this a great spot for me.
If the stuff to be found in that room doesn’t float your boat, there’s sure to be some other aspect of the place that appeals to you, have a look at their website for all listings!
