The history of Sala Apolo

Sala Apolo is one of the oldest dance halls in Europe. Its origin dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and its transformation has gone in parallel to the transformation of Barcelona. Apolo was born as an amusement park and has hosted a dance hall, a bingo, a professional skating club, a nightclub... until it has arrived at what we nowadays know as "Sala Apolo", a music hall and nightclub.

In 2018 we celebrated the 75th anniversary of the hall with special programming throughout the year, the premiere of the documentary La Juventud Baila directed by Marc Crehuet and the publication of the historical book 75 años sin parar de Bailar written by Eva Espinet.

More than 11,000 groups and 5,500 DJ’s and producers have come up on the stage of Sala Apolo since it opened its doors as a concert hall and club in the 90's.
