Review of Choko Cannabis Club in Barcelona

Feature Image Choko Cannabis Club Review

Choko cannabis club in Barcelona is one of the most stunning and unique cannabis clubs in Spain. Well-known for their local-artist inspired décor, spacious areas to relax and work and an internationally-renowned staff, Choko has one thing that no other cannabis club in Barcelona has; its own genetics team. Club Choko has produced 3 proprietary strains including the soon-to-be-infamous Choko strain, which has won numerous awards and is this author’s personal and professional choice for Best Sativa in the World. With a club almost as impressive as their unique and potent cannabis strains, there just isn’t another private cannabis club in Catalonia that compares with this stunning association.

Choko Cannabis Club: The Story Behind the Review

I’ve been a member of Choko for a couple of years after going on a big push in 2014 to join the larger and better clubs in Barcelona. A friend from La Mesa Cannabis Club sponsored me at Choko and it quickly became one of my favorite clubs. Over time I became friends with the President and other members of the Board and Grow Team, and it was then that I learned of their genetics program, which was complete at that time with the Choko strain.

I tried the strain once and was instantly hooked. More on that later.

Choko Cannabis Club: Environment

Like most cannabis clubs in Barcelona, Choko is quite discreet on the outside. A simple but tasteful sign of their logo on a deep green background is positioned above the otherwise unmarked door.

Press the buzzer and step inside and you’ll find yourself in a spacious entryway where members can add funds to their accounts, or sponsor new socios to the club. There are 2 desks in here for reception, and a large picnic table. Although it’s always better to lock your bike up somewhere, there is space to bring it inside; especially if it is the folding type.

The entrance and reception area are separated from the main part of the club by a large wall and a single black curtain. Pull the curtain aside and suddenly you’re in another world. The club spreads out in front to the dispensary, to the sides with huge areas to work and relax, and then fades down into a plush lounge area featuring deep-pile couches and a huge flat screen television that plays movies, music videos, sports games, etc.

Just in front of the dispensary is a bar and tapas area. Choko is one of just a few cannabis clubs in Barcelona that offers hot food.

The main area of Choko and the lounge are monstrous, but in addition to this is a staircase that snakes around the back wall and leads to a gigantic upstairs lounge area. With unique décor and art, this lounge offers Moroccan-style couches and several tables from which to work, roll fat joints, or enjoy a beverage and tapa.

Club Choko plays an eclectic collection of music that is never obtrusive and not too loud. This is a welcome change from many other clubs in the city where obnoxious music is played at a volume that makes it difficult to hear what the person sitting next to you is saying. I have conducted many Skype Consultations from Choko and never had a problem due to the content, type or volume of the music; something I can’t say for most other clubs.

All of the beauty and functionality of Choko is pulled together flawlessly with an incredible collection of art from local talent. From the commanding presence of the “Club Choko Head” to the thought-provoking political and philosophical pieces on nearly every wall, this club is worth going to even if you’re not really into cannabis. Recently the club has begun featuring sculptures that have nicely rounded out the ambiance of what is already a fantastic and memorable environment.

Choko Cannabis Club: Staff

Choko is staffed by a team of people who are dedicated to producing exemplary cannabis for its members while offering an environment that is chic and happy but somehow still manages to be both welcoming and exclusive. Although the club caters to a local member base, its staff are multilingual and can just as easily converse in French or English as they can in Spanish and/or Catalan. The idea behind this is to engage all members at a personal level and to offer an inclusive environment where each member can expect to feel welcome; just like they’re coming back to their own home.

Every time I’ve gone to the club I’ve received a warm welcome complete with hugs and kisses from both the girls and the guys, and these folks are never too busy to get you a drink, fetch you some tapas or just engage with you in good conversation.

Choko Cannabis Club: Marijuana Selection

As of 2016, Choko has the best selection of fine marijuana in all of Barcelona. This consists primarily of their proprietary strains: Choko, Yuzu and Tao Pai Pai. (Reviews of Yuzu and Tao Pai Pai to come in 2016) Both Yuzu and Tao Pai Pai are derivatives of Choko, although both are wildly unique when compared to each other and when compared to Choko.

Club Choko also has an excellent selection of traditional and specialty strains. On offer in January and February of 2016 were the following strains:

  • Kandy Kush
  • OG Kush
  • Critical Mass
  • Jack Herer
  • Mango Tango

I strongly recommend the Kandy Kush if you need a powerful indica.

The club also carries a decent variety of hashish and iceolator, and it is one of the few clubs I know of that still offers shatter.

Choko Cannabis Club: Events and Extras

Choko hosts regular events, most of which are music and/or art related. From hosting galleries of local artist’s work to featuring DJs to tapas and wine pairing nights, Choko is more than just a place to acquire and consume cannabis.

The club provides public (house-use) bongs and other smoking equipment to members and sells a variety of papers, tips, pipes, pre-roll joints (with tobacco), grinders, torches, lighters, etc. Beer and wine, coffee, tea, soda, water and juices are all available, as well as a small selection of tapas.

Conclusion

Choko is without question one of the best cannabis clubs in Barcelona, and in my opinion it offers the very finest marijuana available anywhere in Catalonia. Add to this the spacious environment, intriguing and insightful art, friendly staff and tons of events and extras, and it’s easy to see why this is indeed an extremely special place.

    HI Russ after reading your Blog on Choko cannabis club I payed the more expensive membership wanting somewhere cool to smoke and chill but I have since discovered that although a very stylish venue the cold and unfriendly staff including the male receptionists makes it a very uncomfortable and not so cool place to want to hang out and smoke or go even go there to buy there expensive cannabis. Very disappointed! Looking for a new venue to join!!!!!

      Hola Eric; thank you for your comment, and I’m sorry to hear you’ve had this experience. I’m also quite surprised. I’d like to talk more about this with you, and the Board of the club might like to speak with you as well, if you don’t mind. Can we have a discussion with you to learn how we can make Choko better? Thank you. Peace -Russ

    Hi russ, I will be travelling from Ireland to Barcelona on Thursday early evening until 27th December. I see senzi is closed but I have not been since 2012 and hoping you can hook me up in Choko.
    If this is possible can you tell me what I need and cost of membership please.

    Regards,
    Sean.

    Awesome. This place had it all, including some of the finest herbs I have seen anywhere. I really liked that this place wasn’t just about picking up, but that you could hang around and really relax a bit and peruse some art, catch up on some work emails, or even grab a bite to eat. I was impressed with size of the place considering the location. The huge area, upstairs or down, lets you find the perfect place to claim as your own. The kicker for me was the idea of a very rare and exclusively grown strain only being found inside those walls. The idea definitely had me intrigued and slightly skeptical from the start, and I can honestly say I was not disappointed.

    I picked up two of their own home grown, Choko and Foxy Lady. Foxy Lady made for a great day time smoke, very tasty and very functional. My new Coffee. I could enjoy the effects of this well into the day without getting that burnt out feeling after a day of exploring.

    Choko however, is on another level. This was truly some of the best and strongest sativa I’ve encountered in many years. I recommend you check out Russ’ review on it since it was spot on.

    The place looks great, music is nice and not to loud. The milk coffee was nice. I also appreciate to find other beer than estrella.

    I went 3 time to the club so i tried different things :

    – choko : taste is so unique, it’s very surprising. Very nice but maybe not for evryday cause of the strong taste. The effect for me was a nice clear high very cerebral. Make me think. Like it for Gaudi visits.

    -Tao pai : taste is classic. Very strong high for me (maybe too much), a bit sleepy.

    -foxy lady : Another surprising taste. Honestly i really like it : the taste is subtil and not too strong. Good energic high. Maybe the one i prefer for morning use with a nice coffee and a good reading.

    -candy kush : I must say i’m not an indica guy. But i like this one. Taste is really extra sweet. Effect for an end of the day.

    -gold hash : very classic but i love classic. Remenber me very nice experience i had in Maroco. Medium stone effect.

    -og kush hash : maybe my special award (i like hash very much, more than weed). The taste is strong but very subtil, spicy and “stay in mouth” like a good whisky. High is very strong but not paranoiac at all. It made me smile during a long time. I must say that i rarely find something as good for me.

    -foxy lady buble hash : Bubble hash is what it is : too strong in every way. Taste is very strong. Effect is violent. Something wich make you think a lot or sleep a lot. Only for occasionnal use.
