You will want to take advantage of the beautiful and warm sunshine, so a beach club day is a great choice for you and your girls. Offering an exclusive atmosphere and sun loungers right by the pool, you can top up your tans in style and you may even be lucky enough to spot the odd celebrity.
Take in the chic side of Barcelona with a visit to Passiege de Garcia, the most famous boulevard in Spain, boasting innovative and original architecture. Then spend some quality time with the girls as you relax and have a chat over a drink in a cafe along Las Ramblas, a street that plays host to street artists and market stalls.
If you want to give your taste buds a treat, then add a touch of sophistication to your hen do party with some wine tasting and learn all about its history and the different varieties, before testing your knowledge with some great fun interactive wine tasting games.
When you and your hens have worked up a good appetite, indulge in some delicious local food. Eating out in Barcelona is a great experience for your hen party, as it is all about socialising and sharing. As the sun goes down, Barcelona’s relaxed atmosphere transforms into a vibrant and energetic nightlife. Before you put your dancing shoes on, why not take a chance at a casino for some great fun and lots of excitement. Afterwards, enjoy cocktails with the girls before hitting the nightclubs to dance the night away.
Barcelona El Prat Airport, known simply as Barcelona Airport, is the main airport serving the city. Flights from the UK last around 2 to 2.5 hours and you can fly from all major airports with a choice of airlines. The airport is about a 30 to 40 minute drive (17 km) from the city centre.
Main flight options:
“Chapitos” is Spanish for shots and with over 500 different shots on the menu this bar certainly lives up to its name. What’s more these are no ordinary shots, often involving fire and bizarre props. If you’re looking for a cheeky surprise for the hen, ask about the Monica Lewinsky shot and make sure you have a camera ready…
If you’re looking to walk off the hangover by indulging in a little bit of retail therapy then take a stroll down to the ‘Born’ area. You’ll find a range of independent stores hidden in the back alleys, many selling one of a kind fashion items. Think of it like Carnaby street, (but without the price tag)
Many of the Beach front clubs double as bars during the day. ‘Shoko’ in particular is brilliant for chilling out with a cocktail whilst taking in the view. Remember, in Spain spirits are poured by eye rather than measured, so if you flirt with the bartender your next drink might taste that little bit stronger.
Barcelona might not by the first city with an ice bar but it is the first to have one on the beach. Nothing quite compares with the surreal experience of walking out of the Spanish sun into a bar where everything (including the glasses!) is made from ice.
As well as being home to some of Barcelona’s biggest Night Clubs Port Olympic is where many a playboy docks their super yacht. So why not rub shoulders with the billionaires and enjoy Sangria and Tapas on the Mediterranean.
