It would be a mistake to think that the nightlife options are limited only to nightclubs and bars, since there is another very popular entertainment form in Barcelona known as the karaoke bar. If you are in love with music and cannot imagine your vacations without a fresh music experience, then singing some of your favorite hits, hearing music from all genres, and having a chance to perform in front of a big audience will guarantee you enjoy a perfect evening. Barcelona offers plenty of opportunities for you to experience being a star singer in a cozy, carefree atmosphere. You can even choose a location close to your area or find a place with great prices.
Sor Rita is the most extraordinary karaoke bar in Barcelona, designed as a funny, kitsch version of one of Pedro Almodóvar’s movie settings. On Mondays, you can visit a Tarot reading session, and on Thursdays, make sure to visit one of the joyful, karaoke disco parties. When attending a party at Sor Rita, you definitely will want to sing hits by Diana Ross, ABBA, and Boy George. Loyal patrons of this bar know most of these compositions by heart. Therefore, should you decide to perform one of Madonna’s early songs, you can count on the support of the “choir.” It is no problem to find this establishment nestled in the Gothic Quarter, for there is an image of a huge, high-heeled shoe above the entrance that has become a symbol for this bar.

Located in the Sants district, this bar specializes in karaoke parties and even publishes a karaoke song choice menu, which is cataloged thoroughly by singers on its website. As in many of the clubs in Barcelona, you will have to pay an entrance fee to attend a party, but a lot of bonuses are waiting for you inside the club in compensation, including a terrific atmosphere, pleasant people, the best music, and a special food menu for singers. The menu, “Nick,” was created for large groups that want to “recharge their batteries” between songs. If you simply want to snack, there are several menus with snack sets as well. Should the singing process generate a voracious appetite in your friends, they can choose from some of the menus with patatas bravas and hamburgers that are also intended for large groups of people.
