The Best Cannabis Club in Barcelona

Best Cannabis Club in Barcelona Spain Feature Image

Which is the best cannabis club in Barcelona? That really depends on what you’re looking for, but since I get this question from readers quite frequently, I’ll detail what I consider to be the 5 best smoker’s clubs in my favorite city in the world, Barcelona.

[UPDATE 2016: This post applies to the best clubs in Barcelona for 2014-2015.  Click here to see the Best Cannabis Clubs in Barcelona 2016.]


#1. La Mesa!

Most notable feature: The People

Location: El Born, Barcelona

La Mesa is without a doubt the Best Cannabis Club in Barcelona – and also the most professional. Apart from its posh environment, exciting ambiance and superior selection of high-grade cannabis and concentrates, what makes La Mesa the best smoker’s club in BCN is the people. From the warm and extremely professional staff to the legions of intelligent, productive and engaging members, the people of La Mesa are extraordinary. Those people are the reason I find myself at La Mesa virtually every night of the week. That, and the chess tournaments. We play a lot of chess at La Mesa. 😉

#2. Dr. Dou

Dr Dou Cannabis Club in Barcelona

Most notable feature: Location

Location: El Raval, Barcelona

Dr. Dou smoking club is one of the coolest private marijuana clubs in Barcelona. Mellow, interesting and staffed by a fantastic group of people, this club is located a short walk away from the heart of Barcelona. From Placa Catalunya and Las Ramblas, Dr. Dou provides a nearby getaway in a quiet neighborhood that stands in sharp contrast to the teeming Ramblas and eastern edge of Raval. Known for its celebration of local artists and for its regular “Taco Nights,” Dr. Dou is down-to-earth but still somehow feels deliciously exclusive.

LaMente Logo#3. LaMente

Most notable feature: Ambiance

Location: El Raval, Barcelona

Decorated like a 50’s American diner strongly influenced by Spanish modernism, LaMente boasts an environment that is unlike any other cannabis club in Barcelona. Just a few minute walk from Placa Catalunya, LaMente is an excellent place to work or study, to meet business associates or just to hang out with friends. LaMente offers a solid, unique marijuana menu full of superior strains that show the club is dedicated to producing something exemplary for their members.

#4. Choko

Most notable feature: Artistic Expression

Location: El Gotic, Barcelona

Choko is a vast, tastefully appointed private cannabis club located only steps from Placa Catalunya, just off the busy Via Laietana. Choko offers its members a selection of weed that is exceedingly difficult to find elsewhere in Barcelona. For instance, I visited the club in January 2015, and had the joy of sampling their famous proprietary Choko strain, as well as their Agent Orange marijuana strains, which were both potent and memorable. (In fact, the Choko strain is in my opinion the best sativa available in Barcelona as of March 2015.) Choko frames the club’s comfortable and spacious interior with some rather stunning works of art that you really need to see to believe.

#5. Green Age

Most notable feature: In-House Restaurant

Location: Gracia, Barcelona

Green Age is a little “off the beaten path” for those who live or work in the center of Barcelona, but the club is so beautiful and has such excellent weed that for many, it’s worth it to be a member. One of the primary reasons that I like this club is because it has an in-house restaurant. At nearly all other clubs, I constantly have to interrupt my work (I often work from my laptop) to go get something to eat. At Green Age, I can work, smoke some weed, eat some food and then get focused on work again without interruption.

(The video above was shot at Green Age during one of the club’s formerly frequent magic shows)

    hey russ, can you tell me if any of this clubs sell to outsiders?

    • Russ Hudson March 5, 2017 at 08:09 - Reply

      Hola Jose; No, definitely not. 1. Cannabis clubs in Spain do not sell cannabis 2. Cannabis clubs in Spain are 100% private; outsiders cannot enter or make use of the clubs. I recommend reading some of the materials at the following link to help you understand how the clubs work: Peace -Russ

    I’m a 20-year-old American exchange student from Seattle who will be visiting Barcelona in February. I’m looking for a taste of home when I visit. Could you assist me in finding a club that’s +18 instead of +21?

    Thanks a million,

    Mahalo, (thank you in Hawaiian), for this great, informative, article. Just got back from Barcelona and am very tempted to begin spending a portion of each year there. Wanted to compliment the music for the La Mesa video, as it begins with a track from the incomparable, “Dreams” recording by Gabor Szabo. One of my lifetime favorites. Love a great sativa, which we see here in Hawaii, frequently. Next time, I hope to come as a part time resident, join several clubs and perhaps play a bit of music, in one’s where that is appropriate. All The Best and Aloha from Hawaii.

    Hey Russ. Sorry for piggybacking on this other persons comment…I honestly couldn’t figure out how to leave my own comment. That said, my wife and I are heading to Barcelona on September 18th…and I was interested in becoming a member at Choko and Lamente as they are the closest to where we are staying. Is there any information or help you could give me regarding membership. Thanks in advance:)

      Hola Shahar; the only thing that I can really do is to sponsor you at a private cannabis club if you qualify. To request sponsorship, please email me at Peace -Russ

    Hey Rus,
    I just would like to know if in any of your described clubs it´s possible to play billard or table footbal…and which one has the lowest member fee and/or charge for the weed?

    Best greetings and thanks for the help 🙂

    • Russ Hudson February 27, 2016 at 11:12 - Reply

      There are more than 200 clubs in the city so you can probably find what you are looking for, but in the clubs I have described here Dr. Dou has ping pong and Choko will soon have a professional billiards table. Like most clubs they all have a similar membership fee of 20-30 Euro and most require similar member share fees from their members, but we don’t discuss that in public. Peace -Russ

    My question is about shatter or amber or oils

    Could you please recommend the best source according to your knowledge thank you in advance:)

      Hola Alain; actually, the only two concentrates that I use are both from La Mesa; the Black Domina or similar shatter, and their world-famous Amnesia Iceolator. 😉 Peace -Russ

    Hi Russ, Myself and a friend are coming to Barcelona in May, If I contact you a day or two beforehand will you be able to refer us to the clubs? we want to go to Dr Dou and La Mesa. Also can you recommend the best neighbourhood to stay in so we are walking distance to these two clubs? Thanks Russ, Alan

    • Russ Hudson January 2, 2016 at 21:29 - Reply

      Hola Alan; Yes, if you email me 24 hours prior to your arrival I will be happy to assist provided you meet all of the necessary requirements. The two clubs you mentioned are on opposite ends of the city center, Raval and Born, which means the best “middle ground” will be Gotico. Talk to you in the spring. Peace -Russ

    La Mesa was definitely superb. I can’t compare to the other places in Barcelona as this is the only one I’ve joined, but the concentrates are especially excellent. Caught me off guard, actually 🙂

    As described by others, the product was excellent, the staff friendly, knowledgeable and keep the areas clean. Devices available there for use. Chill vibe, good music, people working, hanging out, playing chess, all sorts of personalities, relaxing atmosphere. Staff asked to make sure we were enjoying our selection after we were there a while.

    Highly recommend.

    Thanks for referring us there Russ, greatly appreciated.

    Hi Russ, i want to know if all the club are already open ? And if we need to have a godfather or not?
    Forbidden under 21years old or 18?
    Thanks !

    • Russ Hudson July 27, 2015 at 01:00 - Reply

      Hola Ornano; I am not sure what you mean by “if the club are already open?” Yes, by law you need a sponsor in order to join any private cannabis club in Spain. Most cannabis clubs in Barcelona are 21+, but a couple are 18+. In other areas of the country I am not sure, but probably most are 21+. If you would like to make an application to join, please email me at and I will be happy to assist you. Peace -Russ

    Thanks again!!

    • Russ Hudson May 24, 2015 at 17:00 - Reply

      Hi Julien; in order to join a legitimate private cannabis club in Spain, you must be sponsored by a current member. If just anyone could join, then the clubs would be considered public and could not exist under the law. I got your email and responded there, hopefully I can help. Peace -Russ

    Hi Russ, just wanted to say thanks for putting together such a helpful and informative site. Me and my partner are heading out to Barca in 2 weeks and wanted to sample some Spanish cannabis culture after hearing some great things. We didnt know where to start but these pages have helped explain a lot. I will be sending an email over to get your advice on acquiring a memberships a bit closer to our trip, I see that you recommend waiting until 48 hours prior to our arrival so I didn’t want to pester you too early!

    Thanks again.

    Is there any reliable directory of all of the cannabis clubs in Barcelona and the rest of Spain if possible? Curious to see how many there are and such.

    • Russ Hudson March 24, 2015 at 19:52 - Reply

      Hi Jay; we built such a directory a little over a year ago, but it has not been updated since then so some clubs have closed, and some new ones have opened. But you may be able to find what you need, and we plan to update it this spring: Peace -Russ

    How many grams can i get at once and do any of these clubs allow members who are under 21 (i’m 18 btw) and if not can you recommend a club for me who accept people who are 18

    • Russ Hudson March 6, 2015 at 21:39 - Reply

      Hi Roronoa; each club has different policies, so it depends. But in general you can aquire up to 5 grams per day, and up to 80 grams per month in most cases. Right now I do not know of any clubs that are accepting new members who are under the age of 21. Peace -Russ

    Hello. Not going to Barcelona until September 2016 (I know) but I am just striking up a casual conversation so we can be fast friends by then. *grin* there will be 6 of us… We will rent a house for a week. Does this count as a Spanish address or does your ID have to have the address?



    • Russ Hudson March 1, 2015 at 16:06 - Reply

      Hi Kat; things have changed frequently in the cannabis industry here in Barcelona, so I really can’t guess what the requirements will be that far in the future. So far your ID has never had to feature your address…
