Bars and cafes
Most bars in Barcelona are located close to eachother, in an area often called "Gayxample". It is close to metro Universitat. You find here most bars, some saunas and clubs. There are not so many restaurants in this part of town.
Barcelona gay nightlife starts very late. This also includes the bars. Tourists usually go out a bit earlier and can be found in Punto BCN. The spanish guys don't show up before midnight or later. The most popular bar at the moment is now Zeltas.
