New social Clubs in Barcelona
Barcelona has always been a city with a wide range of cultural activities, and it is not just an issue of Catalan pride , if we compare Barcelona with other cities like Madrid and Valencia in theaters, cabarets , concerts or just reading clubs ,Bcn heads the ranking in this type of offers . In recent years , a new type of premises with the nickname of “Smoking club” has enriched the variety of cultural activities available not only limited to a space where people smoke. The origin of these clubs is in the social clubs of the late nineteenth century. In Barcelona we find some as elitist as The Equestrian Club or as romantic as the Social Pipa Club. With the advent of the new millennium and a strict european smoking ban law ,it begins to emerge private spaces where smoking is allowed and is not frowned upon. There´s nothing better than a good evening with friends smoking what we like if we got nothing better to do. Smoking clubs are committed to organize cultural activities. First musical, literary , recreational and slowly , looking for new areas in which to satisfy the concerns of the members of these clubs. So it is relatively easy to find clubs where there are activities other than smoking such as dance, reading clubs or even sports activities. However, in social clubs that were created in the late nineteenth century there was a very restricted access and adherence had some pretty strict requirements.Nowaday with new smoking clubs , things have changed. Taking a look at the clubs who are in Barcelona , the requirements for access are usually an annual fee and be supported by a member liable for the actions of the new member of the club before the club itself . Times have changed , but the club´s principles are the same . Provide a space where its members can talk, discuss and socialize with people of similar interests. Left aside the smoking as the main reason for joining one of these clubs and becomes a pretext for its members to gather around a table and talk or hear a concert. So then , it is true that the presence of non-smokers in these places is growing and many of these clubs decide to promote sports activities that have little or nothing to do with smoking activities . It is not unusual to see a group of runners or a football team or other sports that have been known and have decided to play under the flag of these associations. Barcelona is enriched with all this A situation where everyone gain something : smoking clubs , its inhabitants and the city of Barcelona itself .
