Happy New Year is “Feliç Any Nou” in Catalan and “Feliz año nuevo” in Spanish. The 31/12 is called “nochevieja” or “Fin de Año” in Spanish and “Cap d’Any” in Catalan. New Year parties in Spain are often called “cotillons de nochevieja.”
The Spanish word “cotillón” is the collective name for party paraphernalia like confetti, party horns, party hats, and so on. You often see the word “cotillón” on restaurants and club party posters. This means that New Year’s party accessories are included in the ticket price.

Some bars in Barcelona have free entrance on New Year’s Eve, but most clubs will charge an entrance fee. NYE party prices at bars and clubs vary from as low as €10 to € 40 for a club admission that includes cotillón (party hat, etc.) and copies (drinks).
One, two, or more drinks are usually included in the entrance price. For gala dinner and party, the prices range from €75 to €300 depending on the venue. It is always a good idea to book in advance.
As mentioned, most of the top Barcelona clubs and many top Barcelona hotels have a New Year Party or Dinner in Barcelona. We have listed the high Barcelona New Year parties below, but there are many other New Year parties, so we suggest you visit our Barcelona nightlife directory.
You can buy little tins of 12 grapes, but we recommend fresh grapes which taste better. Seedless is best because you will have to eat one grape at each chime of the clock as it counts down to midnight and a new year.
After that, if you haven’t choked on the grapes, you can toast with Spanish Cava sparkling wine.
