The legendary nightlife scene in the electric European city of Barcelona can be felt throughout the streets, from the bumping clubs on the beach to the quieter yet just as popular late-night bars closer to the mountains. In the less-visited neighborhood of Poble Nou, where warehouses and abandoned buildings claim the quiet streets, a nightclub emerges like a techno-fueled monster out of a placid lake.
Sala Razzmatazz opened in 2000 and ever since has welcomed musical acts, international DJs and performers into its hollowed-out spaces. The former warehouse blends in with its neighbors, yet once inside, a dark world of electronic dance music and flashing lights float throughout the five separate clubs, all under one roof.
General admission prices range from $14 to $19, which includes one drink from the bar. Club-goers can visit the website before their night out to scout potential discounts. Acts range widely in terms of musical style and intended audience, so check the online schedule before attending.
Sala Razzmatazz has a slight reputation for attracting university students, but with the mass of people, loud music and flowing beverages, braving the younger crowd to dance to your favorite DJ is well worth it.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
One of the greatest sights in the world, the great pyramids of Giza, stands towering in the desert, the imposing stature dwarfing tourists for miles. Visitors to Giza might feel twangs of adventure and exploration, but guests should be warned climbing the pyramids is forbidden.
Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.
