Dr. Dou Social Club is a small authentic cannabis club in the historic center of Barcelona, in a colorful area Raval. It is only three minutes away from the famous La Rambla and five minutes away from Plaça Catalunya. But it is easily accessible from anywhere in the city thanks to the close proximity from metro stations Liceu (line L3) and Plaça Catalunya (L3/L4).
Dr. Dou is a place for like-minded people, and you can feel it right away! The club is made up of just one room with an eclectic, Barcelona-style decor – you will feel as if you are in a cozy furnished garage with friends: full-wall mirrors, stylish chairs with bike pedals, tire swings, steampunk-style paintings, leather sofas reminiscent of the seats in vintage cars…
Here, you can meet expats from all over the world and easily make friends! There are always people in the club, even in the middle of the day - they work, study, and have meetings here.
At night after 7 p.m., the club hosts DJ sessions and "live" concerts once a month either on the 3rd or 4th Sunday of each month. Because of the compact space, these sessions are more like a good old-fashioned house party. Though quite a crowd of people comes in the evenings, the club is always clean and well ventilated.
The space also has a beautifully decorated bar. Here, you will be offered various soft drinks, tea, coffee, and snacks. And as you enter the bar, you can buy trendy club merch.
