Barcelona’s nightlife is well known throughout Europe and across the world, and Otto Zutz is a cornerstone of its club scene. Housed in a former textile factory, its dance floors and multiple bars are spread out over three levels and can hold more than 1,000 people.
The interior is well designed and contemporary, yet maintains an industrial feel. Each level is themed with different music and often features some of Europe’s best DJs, allowing for variety throughout the night. R&B, funk, and hip hop are most frequently played.
As a sophisticated venue, Otto Zutz tends to draw a well-dressed crowd. It is popular with locals and visitors alike and is regarded to be one of the best nightclubs in the city. Long lines are common on most nights, so it’s best to arrive early or find a way to get on the list to avoid waiting for entry.
Much to the surprise of first time visitors to Spain, nightlife often doesn’t begin before midnight (and often continues until the metro reopens the next morning.) Otto Zutz is open from 12-5am. It’s located in the Sant Gervasi neighbourhood of Gracia, a more residential area of the city. The nearest metro stop is Fontana (Green L3 line) and it takes about 5 minutes walking from there. Club attire is recommended.
