Arena Madre Review

Located in Eixample, Barcelona’s gay district, Arena Madre is a popular choice of venue for locals and tourists alike. It usually attracts youngsters. You’ll often see guys experiencing gay nightlife for the first time here, bringing heterosexual friends with them. Arena Madre welcomes all sexual orientations, including heterosexuals (but they are a minority). It’s apart of the most successful LGBT club chain in Barcelona: the Arena Group. We are really happy to be working with these guys and, as a result, able to bring you great offers through our Barcelona Gay Escape.

If you’re out and about in Eixample bars (as you will be if you’re here to experience the LGBT scene), Arena Madre is right in the centre of all the action (check out our Barcelona Gay Escape to see what’s nearby). It’s easy to get to, full of fun, happy people and stays open nice and late (as most Spanish clubs do!)..

There’s a dark room (a place for people to get it on!) which is popular all year round. In fact, the club itself is a popular weekday choice for those in the know because of the crowds it consistently brings in. Also, in the summer, Arena Madre is famous for its foam parties. Don’t miss out, if you’re around when they’re on!

The music here is usually either electronic or house. Arena Madre is open everyday from 12:30am and closes at either 5am or 6am, depending on the day. Pick up one of our Barcelona Gay Escape Guides to get the best possible deal. It’s always good to be a step ahead!
