check your shit though if you go to Barcelona especially down in the subways and down la rambla. first hour in the city and I stopped another guy pick pocketing another guy.
the turks/romanians/bulgarians/hungarians/etc be a huntin in barcelona... especially barcelona from what I've heard.
Update -- ended up recruiting 17 people from the hostel i was staying in to go check out City Hall for a banging night of house tunes! Good times were had, including rocking out with some Italians who were losing their shit on the dance floor. 10 Euro drinks were a bit steep, so it was a good thing I marinated before hand with cheap 1-euro street beers, haha. Headed over to Moag around 5am, but they were still charging cover with only an hour left to go so we moved on.
I found some hole in the wall club just off rambla called Boxcar, that had one of the best vibes I've seen. The dj was on 3 decks mashing out AC/DC with Bob Sinclair when I walked in, super silly fun stuff. I stayed all night and it only got better. Shoulder to shoulder in there the whole time.
Good to hear you found something Dan!
do you mean Sidecar?
Weird. I was there last month and hated it. The vibe/music was like something you'd find in Dance Cave mixed with Grace O'Malley's on a Saturday, only on a crappier system. I'd read good reviews for it too so I was disappointed.
Oh, I think so! It's off and to the left of that side street, right? Yeah, it was so freaking hype when I was there.
This was over 2 years ago though. Maybe it's whack now.
you probably just landed on a really good night, like all the people who wrote the reviews I read, which makes the fact that it sucked so hard on the night I went burn so much more.
the good thing about it though is that the fun seems to get started earlier there than most other places. what kind of club opens at 3am? honestly. foreigners!
