New Year’s Eve dinners in Barcelona: the best restaurants

Updated Dec 01 2021

Little by little the arrival of New Year’s Eve is coming, and we already know what is happening. So, we need to start to organise ourselves to enjoy this magical night with our loved ones (family, friends, partner). To do this, many of us who already live in Barcelona choose to have dinner at home and, after the bells ring, many laughs and several toasts, we go out to party with friends and with our partner.

Even so, it is becoming more and more common, either with our family or with the same group of friends we will later go out with, to have dinner at a restaurant on New Year’s Eve, which automatically makes us ask the following question “Where to dine out?” Fortunately, they are a lot of answers to reach the same objective of each group being able to enjoy their New Year’s Eve dinner in a restaurant that best suits their tastes and needs.


There are also many different tourists who decide to welcome the New Year in Barcelona and, if they do not celebrate it in the hotel’s own restaurant, they also choose to look for a good restaurant in the city to enjoy New Year’s Eve, so these dinners usually have a very fun atmosphere.

How to celebrate a New Year’s Eve Dinner in the restaurants of Barcelona?

Usually, restaurants are not open on the evening of 31st December and they celebrate with a simple dinner. However, there is also this possibility, which offers the chance to celebrate the ringing of the 12 bells in a music venue or club that opens its doors before 12am or to go to the official New Year’s Eve party held in the city.

So, the options for dining at a restaurant in Barcelona on New Year’s Eve are as follows: special New Year’s Eve dinner in a restaurant with a final party, special New Year’s Eve dinner at a music venue or club or dinner at a bar or restaurant without a New Year’s Eve Party.

bars and restaurants New Year's Eve in Barcelona

Restaurants are decorated exclusively for this event and offer customers a special New Year’s Eve menu (sometimes two or three menus to choose from) at a fixed price, as well as the essential cotillion (the usual festive elements to celebrate New Year’s Eve). Dinner lasts until after midnight to be able to celebrate the 12 bells and, consequently, the arrival of the New Year in the same restaurant.

After midnight, a New Year’s Eve party is held in the restaurant, which usually ends before the typical New Year’s Eve parties in the clubs. To celebrate the party, the restaurant’s room is set up as a dance hall or, if the restaurant has one, it is held in a specific dancing area.

B: Special New Year’s Eve dinner at a music venue or club

The Best New Year Eve parties Barcelona Clubs

Several musical venues and clubs that also have a restaurant area, offer interesting offers to enjoy a special New Year’s Eve dinner.

Without a doubt it is an excellent option for fans of the most important clubs and music venues in the city (Shôko, Pacha, Carpe Diem, etc.) and who, consequently, prefer to spend New Year’s Eve dancing in one of these venues. For those who wish, there is also the option of dining elsewhere and only paying for the New Year’s Eve Party held past midnight.

C: dinner at a bar or restaurant without a New Year’s Eve Party

Several restaurants offer a special dinner on New Year’s Eve but do not organise a final party. On the other hand, some bars also remain open, but do not offer a typical New Year’s Eve dinner.


If you intend to go to a venue or club or, why not, go to the official New Year’s Eve party in Barcelona (the pre-show starts at 9.30pm and the party itself at 11.45pm), you will be interested in dining at this latter type of bars or restaurants. After the end of the official celebration show, you can continue the New Year’s Eve party at a music venue or club in Barcelona.
