Some of the most popular discos in Barcelona are located in this area. However, it is worth to clarify that apartments at Villa Olímpica are located outside the disco area, so the discos do not create a noise problem for neighbors. If you like discos, we suggest to go to CDLC, Shoko, Opium Mar and Sotavento.

If you look for  apartments for temporary rent in Barcelona, La Villa Olímpica is a highly suggested neighborhood, for being  modern, nice, well communicated with city center and entertainment areas, and also ideal for beach lovers.

An important tip: At Cine Icaria Yelmo Cineplex you’ll find movies in original language in Barcelona, with spanish subtitles. This cinema is located at street Salvador Espriu 61, at Villa Olímpica neighborhood.
