If jazz is your thing, then a trip to Barcelona has got to include a trip to the city’s legendary Harlem Jazz Club. This is the perfect place to spend your night listening and dancing to jazz, soul and funk – and if you get there earlier in the evening you will be treated to some live bands.
This is a typical jazz club – cosy with lighting that’s low and drinks that don’t cost a fortune, and more importantly, an atmosphere that will make you feel welcome. The club has a capacity for 300 people in its one room, with the dance floor at the back and the bar at the front, and draws people of all ages who are more interested in the music than in what everyone is wearing!
The Harlem Jazz Club is open most nights, but these do tend to change, and is a 10 – 15 minute walk from the metro’s Liceu stop (Green Line, L3). Walk down Las Ramblas towards the port until you come to Calle Ferran. Walk down this street until you come to Calle Avinyo. Partway down this street you will see Calle Comtessa de Sobradiel – this is a small side street on a hill, and the Harlem Jazz Club is near the top.
