By Aurore Barrand on 25-07-2018

Barcelona is famous for its sun, beaches, famous monuments, but especially for its nightlife. Spaniards know how to party, and here we almost never sleep. This is a short guide on how to party, all on a low budget!

Before starting to drink it's always better to have a full stomach. Come and discover the free dinners organized by some of the music venues - you will have the opportunity to meet new people whilst enjoying sushi, pizzas or tapas. You will also have free drinks of cava or wine!

After eating well, it's time to go for several drinks in one of the many bars in the city. For example, you can go to The Cyrano. Located in the Zona Alta area, the Cyrano is a bar with an original concept: you are the one who prepare your drinks, you just have to inform the bartender of the alcohol and soft beverages that you will drink, and he will let you create the desired cocktail. This is the perfect place for empty purses and those who want to start the evening quickly.
