During the warmer summer months, Barcelona is definitely the place to be in Spain. Nestled right along the glistening Mediterranean coast, the bustling urban city has much to do whether you’re in the busy city centers or right along the clear water. CeleBreak, an amateur football company, made our list of our favorite things to do in Barcelona during summer when the heat rises, and people from all over come traveling into the city for some fun!

Jazz Bands at La Pedrera

Summer is the time to see local jazz bands from around Barcelona on the stunning rooftop terrace of the Gaudi House. Pay a fixed price and enjoy a visit to the Espai Gaudí exhibition and a bubbly glass of cava and after, head upstairs to check out the concert. Concerts happen on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights when the sun goes down and you can enjoy the warm summer evening. There’s also an exquisite tapas menu! This is the perfect place to explore the works of the Famous Gaudi, his artwork of an apartment, and live jazz music to set the tone. The rooftop terrace also has one of the most glamorous views of the city which looks even better on a summer night- shimmering city lights all around you. It’s definitely a must-stop in the city as the hot day turns to night.

Booze Cruise on the Sea

A popular attraction for all kinds of tourists, cruises around the Barcelona beach coast is a top priority for most people during summertime in the city. Escape the heat and busy city streets and step on an exciting sailboat on the water. Add a whole lot of alcohol to the equation, and you’ve got the perfect summer evening in Barca. This particular booze cruise lasts about 2 hours on the open ocean with beautiful sites of the city from afar. You also get unlimited drinks on the boat made up of local beer and sangria. After you’re done socializing with other tourists, breathing in the sea air, and got a good buzz going on, the cruise also gives you free club entries that night to continue the summer fun on land.

Exploring Park Ciutadella

Very popular on warm and breezy sunny days, this Barcelona park has lots of activities and things to see. Take a stroll down the palm tree-paved walkway from the historic Arc de Triumph across the street to one of Barcelona’s most favorite parks. During the summer months you can find this area filled with tourists and Barcelona natives alike looking for a nice and shady spot to relax. Stroll by the mammoth statue, gaze at the magnificent the Gran Cascade Fountain, or rent a paddle boat around the large blue lake. There’s also a zoo and museum on the grounds that will complete your summer day at this beautiful European park.

Bar hop around the Gothic Quarter

Skip the busy and over-crowded Las Ramblas and head into the Gothic Quarter on a cool summer night to try out some seriously cool Barcelona bars. Through the narrow medieval streets of one of the area’s oldest neighborhoods are small and intimate cocktail bars. Gin is the main star here, combined with local ingredients by the specialist bartenders. Some of our favorites are Sugar, Lime House, and Old Fashioned for killer drinks that look even better. Summer is also the time to check out the outdoor landmarks, cafes, and tapas bars in the Gothic.

Movies on the Beach

Summertime in Barcelona is the time of the year when the city plays international films right on the beach! The perfect place to settle down with drinks and friends as the sun goes down, the movies on the sand starts at 9PM until midnight. Taking place on the local San Sebastià beach in Barcelona, nothing beats this summer activity where you can take a break from the crazy nightlife and relax with family, friends, or coworkers in a fun pastime.
