Razzmatazz

Barcelona super club Razzmatazz, which brings together 5,000 clubbers every weekend, celebrates its 10th birthday this year.

The mega club will host two months of “birthday parties” ending the 22nd of December. Shows and events include a long list of musical talent including: Vive La Fête, Florrie, Lo-Fi Fnk, Crystal Fighters, Benga, Sasha, Casiokids, Aeroplane and Ali Love.

The macroclub which is located in the former industrial area of Poble Nou has had its share of difficulties especially in mid-2008 when the Sinnamon empire fell into bankruptcy after seeing revenues drop 25% due to the recession.

The new owner Daniel Faidella, which is also a founding partner of Razzmatazz has since managed to help recover the vibe of the superclub and is working hard to not have the club fall to a similar fate as other legendary clubs in Barcelona, such as Cibeles and La Paloma, which have both been closed down for good after a series of difficulties including but not limited to a clampdown of anti-nightlife moves from authorities.

Barcelona’s Dying Nightlife

In the past five years, emblematic nightlife venues such as the over 100-year-old club La Paloma was shut down as well as Cibeles in Gracia and over 20-year-old bar Mas i Mas. With a total of over 500 nightlife venues ordered to shut for good Barcelona has lost a big chunk of it’s entertainment appeal. Which club will be next to go?
