Please support my work by sharing:

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 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.

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!

  1. 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.

  2. Russ,
    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.

    1. 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.

  3. 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.

    1. 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.

  4. Hello Russ. I will be in Barcelona later this month w/ my wife & we will be coming from California. Hope to see if you can get membership access to this club.

  5. La Mesa is a great club, very chill. Russ thank you for the help getting medicine, I was able to sleep. Russ was very helpful and very fast to reply my many questions. La Mesa was great, the times I went there, I was alone, but I was able to meet people that were supper friendly and was just good vibes. See you at La Mesa!
