Barcelona Cannabis Club Review: La Mesa

Feature image - La Mesa on Carrer del Rec in Barcelona Spain

La Mesa cannabis club is located on Carrer del Rec, in the Borne district of Barcelona. As one of Barcelona’s finest cannabis social clubs, La Mesa encourages its members to hang out, relax, meet other people, work, share ideas and promote initiatives as entrepreneurs instead of just as quick in-and-out smoker’s club customers. Producing extremely high-quality premium cannabis for both medical and recreational purposes, La Mesa categorically lives up to its slogan; “Smoking Hot Since 2012.” The club is hot and so is the pot; check out this review and see what they’ve got.

La Mesa: EnvironmentDance area at La Mesa

La Mesa’s front entrance will set you in the right mood straight away. Featuring large pieces of glass emblazoned with a bright flame, La Mesa lets the sunlight in but keeps prying eyes out. As you enter the door into the spacious reception area, you will find on your left a desk and a table for member registration.

To become a member, you will need to be referred by an existing member who must accompany you and be present during your inscription. You must provide a passport or sufficient identification and, after filling out a registration form with your personal details, the Terms and Conditions of the Club will be carefully explained to you. You must sign the documents to indicate your acceptance of the terms, and upon payment of the yearly membership fee (25 Euros) you will be provided with a member card featuring a barcode and your member number.


(This is a preliminary application process; not all who apply will qualify for membership based on Spanish law and club policy. Application for membership is general and is not necessarily applied to any particular club unless the applicant fully qualifies.)

Leather sitting area at La Mesa weed club BCNIf you arrive at La Mesa with friends or family who are not members and who do not intend to join but wish to wait for you, they will be invited to do so in the front reception area. This keeps them safely off the street and helps to maintain a discreet environment. While they wait, your friends can try some delicious cucumber water courtesy of La Mesa.

[Important Note: To avoid the exchange of cash inside the club, it’s important to charge your member card with money at the registration desk in order to be able to collect anything from the club – including cannabis. Once you have checked-in with your photo ID and your fully charged member card, you can enter the main area, and collect your part of the harvest.]

As you enter the main area, you will immediately feel the warmBeautiful meeting area at La Mesa club Barcelona vintage-chic atmosphere the owners have created. Repurposed furniture, soft but colorful lights, live palm trees and decorative ventilation systems give a feeling of the art-deco period of the Roaring Twenties, while retaining some hint of post-modernism as well.

La Mesa has two principle gathering areas; the first one hosts the namesake of the place: two heavy wooden tables, “La Mesa.” This
area of the club is setup to be a work-friendly environment; a cooperative space where people can work, share their ideas, meet other entrepreneurs and promote their business activities.

On the right of this main area you will find the bar and dispensary with a wide selection of cannabis strains, concentrates, an events board and much more.

Once you’ve passed the “La Mesa” area, you can sit and chill in the second principle area, which is filled with stuffed sofas. Here you will also find an electronic mixing board and DJ station, a second bar offering snacks and drinks and a wide screen television set to whatever programming the club has selected for its members that day.

After visiting the club a couple of times I was surprised to see a wide range of different people arriving individually or with friends, primarily to study or work from the cozy environs of the club while enjoying some fresh marijuana. La Mesa is a balanced combination of a work-friendly, intellectually-stimulating space (they even provide headphones) and a place for fun, fascinating conversations and memorable encounters.

La Mesa: Marijuana Selection

La Mesa produces around 10 different cannabis strains ranging from Indica dominant strains to Sativa dominant strains to a variety of hybrids. Like other high-end clubs with balanced grow plans, La Mesa changes its menu from time to time, but during the times I visited the club, the following strains of raw flower were available:

LA Confidential
Jack Herrer
NYC Diesel
Amnesia Haze

I have tried their Blueberry (20% S/80%5 I), Amnesia Haze (80% S / 20% I) and Lavender (20% S/80%5 I) strains and I must say that they are extremely high quality. Grab our RSS feed in the upper right of this page to get updated when I publish my next post; a review of the lovely Lavender strain.

La Mesa: Accessories & EventsBoard of events at La Mesa cannabis club

To complete the vintage-chic atmosphere, La Mesa plays slow salsa and soul during the day and funk and chill-out music at night, replete with two flat screens and a wide screen playing music videos. Magazines, books, cannabis literature, board games and free Wi-Fi are available to all members.

La Mesa offers many activities in order to create camaraderie between members and to create a feeling of unity and solidarity. Each day a documentary (generally cannabis related) is shown at 1pm, and a DJ starts playing music at 7pm. The topic for documentaries and DJ set lists change on a weekly basis; schedules and programs are sent to all members in an emailed newsletter, or these events can be checked on the board next to the first bar/dispensary.

Every two weeks La Mesa organizes a Sunday Fair/Showroom for its four “members of the month” to promote their business (craft, artwork, food etc). This allows members a chance to share their passions and trades with other members in a cannabis-friendly environment; a rarity in the business world.

Service area at La MesaThe second bar for food and drinks offers healthy beverages (smoothies, fresh juices, water, coffee and tea) and a few soft alcoholic drinks like beer, wine or cava, as well as a few pastries. Some evenings, La Mesa organizes “Delivery session” nights, where the staff orders food for the members who want to have dinner for 10 Euros each, with a wide choice of ethnic cuisine such as Indonesian, Japanese, Mexican, typical Spanish sandwiches etc.

La Mesa: Staff

The staff at La Mesa is approachable, friendly and multilingual. They will make you feel welcomed and at home, and this is a distinctly different feeling than what you might find at a traditional club or bar. The president of La Mesa and its staff are exceptionally conscious about the well-being of their members, as I have observed them at nearly all times moving quickly and efficiently around to keep the place clean, organized and with all the services available with no interruption.


(This is a preliminary application process; not all who apply will qualify for membership based on Spanish law and club policy. Application for membership is general and is not necessarily applied to any particular club unless the applicant fully qualifies.)

ConclusionAwesome hang out areas at La Mesa marijuana club in Barcelona Spain

La Mesa is an outstanding place to work, read, meet like-minded people, and share cannabis in an incredibly comfortable and welcoming environment. With its wide range of high quality marijuana strains and concentrates, its warm staff and unforgettable environment, you will definitely want to come back to hang out again and again – I did!

    Ok I see that it was closed. Hopefully can be referred to this club as I really enjoyed the staff and atmosphere. In addition, any other upscale clubs are of interest to me. Russ I really appreciate your service. Thanks,

    Dear Russ
    Thank you for recommending Lamesa to us. It was very easy to find and the stuff over there were so friendly. I went there in February 2016 and it was amazing place with great atmosphere. We enjoyed it and I always recommend it to friends.
    I haven’t been to there since that and I’m not sure about reopen it with different name. And if they did, can I reapply to them?
    Thank you for your help.

    And what about our subscription fee? Now we have to pay again for the same club?
    I also think it is very unprofessional.

    It’s not our problem, we even are victim, of what happened. As members we trusted owners, and seems they did bad thing, according to the justice.

    The last you/they can do is contact us and offer to subscribe for free in the new club.
    Thanks for your help.

      Me? I was just a member, just like you; I had nothing to do with it and had no choice in any of it so why should *I* do anything? And you’re not looking at this right and clearly don’t understand the court case at all. The Board of La Mesa has been sentenced to 5 years in prison. And you’re worried about what, 20 Euro? Wow. A new organization came in and bought the place; they have nothing to do with each other. In any case, leave me out of it; all I did was a favor for you, as a member, and I did it at no cost or anything. Why you’re listing me as culpable is basically a big fuck-you to me, and I don’t appreciate it.

    La Mesa is permanently closed since July 2016.
    Now it is re-labeled as “The Circle”, but all employees and all furniture stay the same. I’ve been told that my account at La Mesa is canceled by the very same people who sold it to me in the first place.
    Very unprofessional.

    • Russ Hudson September 18, 2016 at 22:17 - Reply

      Andrew, when a business is sold, the new owners can negotiate to keep the furniture or whatever else they want for the sake of convenience and many do. And the fact that El Circulo agreed to take on a large portion of La Mesa’s staff is something that we are all very thankful for. You don’t want them to have jobs? You didn’t want the club to be sold to new owners; you just wanted it to be shuttered forever? Come on mate, you should rethink this.

    Me and my sister where fornunate enough to be sponsored by Russ at La Mesa. What a great place the cannabis/concentrates/edibles were all very high quality with very resonable priced! The atmosphere was fantastic and the staff was excellent! I would deffiantly rate La Mesa 5 out of 5. I cant wait to hit La Mesa up again I was in Amsterdam for 9 days before Spain and have to say the cannabis at La Mesa was just as high quality as in Holland and as I states above much more resonable priced! Ps try the silver haze and the purple diesel they where both DANK! Thanks again Russ and La Mesa for a wonderful experience!

    What can I say…
    La Mesa is an amazing place. Like being in your own living room. Staff is super friendly, I meet so many interesting people and have so many interesting chats. The music is perfect, not too loud to the point where these interesting conversations can happen, without you having to scream your head off.
    Love every minute I spend here
    Thank you Russ for this 🙂
    Will be back regularly

    Thank you, Russ, for your membership patronage to La Mesa. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain things very well – it made things very clear for me when I inscribed. La Mesa is an awesome club, warm, friendly, relaxed and very professionally managed. Tried the Lavender, Amnesia Haze and the candy (mango flavor). Amazing quality! La Mesa is a gem and, thanks to Russ, I am now a member of this great club.

    Hi Russ,

    I´ve just arrived in Barcelona and would love to get involved with a club. La Mesa looks perfect.
    Sadly, I don´t know anyone here in the city. Russ could you kindly help me with regards to making an application for membership.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Regards Andy

    Hello everyone!!
    Big FAT Thank You goes to Russ! He very kindly sponsored me to join La Mesa and I gotta say he was really amazing – if needed, he answered all my questions and was very helpfull.
    La Mesa – just as described above. Good atmosphere and I felt relaxed. Nice friendly staff – not all spoke english, but I think that sometimes we don’t need words to communicate :)!
    And yeah the weed was great (choice/qlty) – haha…
    Again – thank you Russ. You were great!

    I can only underline what is written above. Really nice and friendly club. They have some nice regional beers that go very well with the weed selection.
    Russ, thanks for your support and making this happen!

    This place is brilliant!
    I knew nothing about it or the growing cannabis scene prior to my arrival in Barcelona. But like many I met there, I Googled where to find weed in the city, and a few clicks later I was emailing Russ Hudson from He gave me the lowdown. And after my arrival in Spain, I was quickly at the club, getting my application, and onto one of the best selections of sativas and indicas I have ever seen.
    The staff rocked.Thank you, Bella. The scene is relaxed and friendly. A definite highlight of my time in Barcelona.
    Thanks again, Russ.

    My wife and I became members of Club Mesa last week. The sign up process was straight forward, and the staff was very friendly, and answered all of our questions.

    The atmosphere of the club is very laid back, and we really enjoyed ourselves, and met a few really cool people while we were there.

    The quality and selection of buds were fantastic. I definitely think we’ve found our favorite place to hang out in Barcelona!

    Thanks Russ for the recommendation!

    This club is tucked away very discreetly close to the beach and gothic quarter. The reception staff was very friendly, and the application process was fast. So I was smoking very quickly. The selection was very good and there were many items available for use and the contributions very reasonable. The club has a DJ booth, tv and big tables. There is fast wifi and places to bring your laptop. This is a cool club I will be sure to visit daily. Thanks Russ.

    Too many great things to say about this place I don’t know where to begin. First off, thank you to Russ for putting us in contact with La Mesa. Second, la Mesa is amazing. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is awesome. Air conditioning was so nice. Interesting videos playing on the TVs, keeps you entertained. Overall, I will definitely recommend La Mesa to anyone staying in Barcelona. Thanks again Russ, and la Mesa. You guys are awesome.

    I’ve member at a few social clubs in bcn. And have to say that la Mesa is the best one. Some clubs you have REALLY sleazy personalitys coming in and out,even street fights just outside from the club they even asked me if I could join and help! Hahah ,or you have these other clubs where they have overflow of bouncers that has a job to be scary, or just a lot of kids form all over, witch create a lot of waiting,no space to sit. They gonna put there music on,OVER priced..What It comes to is that

    La Mesa has non of these factors.
    If u want a good spot In bcn this is def the place.
    [member share costs] are normal
    They have good equipment
    Good lighting
    Not to many tourists as I’ve seen.

    There is just one thing, the “smoothie” it’s the worst ever. Seriously! Horrible wanna write more about that smoothie but that would be on ;p

    And keep in mind, don’t expect American service. You’re in Spain. Atleast I am:)

    La Mesa 5/5
    Big thanks to Russ;)

    Became member of this club a couple of days ago. I must say it was a great experience !!
    The place is really well decorated and modern.
    Staff is really kind and explains everything very well with a smile!
    The product found there is of exeptional quality, I have rarely seen such levels of niceness in one single place… For sure La Mesa know what they are talking about!!!
    Very happy to now be a member of this fine establishment…
    I give it 10 out of 10!!

    Hi Russ,

    My name is Rune, I’m a 24 year old Norwegian, and I am traveling to Barcelona tonight. I would love to become a member of La Mesa, as it seems like a wonderful atmosphere too meet new people and enjoy some high quality Cannabis. Sadly I don’t know anyone in Barcelona (yet), thus I don’t have anyone who can vouch for me. Do you have any advice as to how I should go about getting a membership, so that I can partake in this wonderful culture? Maybe you or someone you know would be willing to meet me for a chat. I would be happy to write an email with more information about what I do and who I am so that you can determine if I’m the right kind of person for the Club.

    Best regards,

    • Russ Hudson July 12, 2014 at 12:36 - Reply

      Hi Rune; congratulations on your trip to Barcelona! La Mesa is one of the best cannabis clubs in the city, so you are wise to want membership there. However, we will need to have a discussion about it, so please email me at Peace -Russ

    Just became a member of La Mesa, and all I can say is…”WOW!” Everyone was so friendly, the process was very smooth, the place is cozy and chilled, and the herb was outta sight. Thanks to Russ for his kind help in getting me sorted. I had already been enjoying Barcelona before my visit to La Mesa. After my visit, the city took on a whole new perspective. I had so much fun, I’m literally a changed man. Hopefully I’ll be back soon. Thanks Russ and La Mesa!

    Hey Russ,
    I kindly wanted to ask you whether it is possible to join La Mesa or any of the other well-known clubs (LaMente, Sweet Dreams, Green Age, Smoke Green ) with just over 18 years ?


    • Russ Hudson July 5, 2014 at 11:41 - Reply

      Hi Valentin; as far as I am aware, all of the clubs you mention require members to be 21+. In fact, at this time I don’t know of any clubs accepting people who are 18+, but there may be one or two left in the city if you can find them and get a sponsor. Good luck! Peace -Russ

  77. Vinnie July 2, 2014 at 23:25 - Reply

    Hey Russ,

    Thanks big time for your help with La Mesa. Everything worked perfectly, just as you said. What a thrill it was for me to actually [acquire] my favorite substance over the counter, not to mention not needing to hit up my son to hit up his friends/dealers.

    I picked out an 80/20 sativa, Amnesia Haze, which provided a nice, “buzzy” buzz to add another level of appreciation to my evening watching Flamenco at the Opera House. The music, dancing and the building itself -awesome- made for a great night.

    And La Mesa was a lot of fun. The young lady behind the counter was very helpful as were two members who helped me deal with a recalcitrant bong: I vaporize at home and it’s been
    a long time since I’ve used a water pipe. They probably figured I was a real piker. Enjoyed the vibe there too. Funky, low lighting, great music, exotic. Very cool.

    And thanks again, Russ. La Mesa made for a great our trip to Barcelona

    Is this the club with the most amount of top quality strains? I mean high end strains, like hazes and kushes instead of the old school mid grade strains.

    • Russ Hudson June 24, 2014 at 02:12 - Reply

      Well, each club generally has a well-balanced selection of low grade, mid grade and high grade strains, as well as some outdoor choices. La Mesa has an excellent selection of products available to members – you can see a picture of the menu choices in this article and compare it to the choices available at other clubs.

    I visited “la mesa” after reading about Russ and emailing with him back and forth a bit. Really nice guy, reliable with email, solid dude. The place is tops, professionsl, friendly, laid back. As it should be. Top grade stuff too. Great experience.

    New rules; there’s 24 hour wait before new members can avail themselves of any of the club’s facilities.

    This review, if anything, doesn’t go far enough in it’s praise. The staff are particularly helpful, and the quality on offer is exceedingly high.
