Location: Barcelona, Spain
Everybody needs a little bit of razzmatazz in their life, which seems to be the attitude behind the design of Spain’s Razzamatazz — or simply Raz (as in, ‘on the…’). Having been a mainstay of Barcelona’s Poblenou neighbourhood for over two decades, opening at the beginning of the new millennium, it’s essentially five clubs in one, supplying a little bit of razzle dazzle for all persuasions.
So while there’s techno upstairs at The Loft and Lolita, downstairs the Razz Club deals in indie rock and The Pop Room and Rex Room offer pop, electro and disco acts. In the past, this has encompassed a huge spread of live acts, from Coldplay to Orbital, Kraftwerk to Kanye. The venue was hit hard by Covid, but 2022 has thankfully seen its doors reopen — acts including LSDXOXO b2b Juliana Huxtable, Jasss, Steffi, PlanningToRock and Horse Meat Disco helping Razzamatazz get back to serving Barcelona’s faithful.
