Opium is one of the classiest and most exclusive clubs in Barcelona and this is why it’s important to dress appropriately. You need to be wearing clothes that reflect the classiness of the club, or else the bouncers will deny you the entry to one of the best club in Barcelona’s nightlife.
Here is our guide on how to dress appropriately when going to Opium.
Men’s Dress Code
For Opium, you will need to dress to impress in order to enjoy Barcelona’s nightlife. Invest in a nice plain button-up shirt or a well-fitting polo with neutral colors. Definitely no tropical Hawaii shirts or Tony Montana-style of shirt.
As for pants, avoid highly ripped/distressed jeans and opt for classy and dark slacks. Definitely no cargo pants, loose khakis or sirwals.
Anybody that is not considered dressed as smart casual or classy will run into issues getting in especially on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
One of the main reason why people get denied is due to their shoes that do not fit the image of the club. Make sure your shoes are clean, stylish and chic. You want your shoes to look good as the bouncers will always pay attention to them.
You can always play it safe and wear dress shoes. We recommend a clean and properly-waxed pair of Chelseas, or Oxfords. If you want to go for a more casual look, we recommend a good pair of leather boat shoes.
Boat shoes is a safe bet, plus it is comfortable for the night and chic enough to enter a club like Opium, especially with the Guest List.
Make sure your hair is clean, washed and groomed well. A hairstyle is something that bouncers are very picky about too. The sides shaven short with longer hair on the top, is not allowed in the upscale clubs of Barcelona
Honestly, we ourselves haven’t heard that someone was rejected entry to Opium.
Keep it clean and simple. You can never go wrong with some classic watches with stainless steel or leather wristband. As for jewelry, it’s ok to have a necklace that’s not too revealing.
Normal, tasteful tattoos aren’t a problem to get it. You might encounter some issues if you have neck or face tattoos as the bouncer won’t probably let you enter the club as it doesn’t fit the image.
Women’s Dress Code
As a girl it is much easier to enter Opium compared to guys. Aim for something high class and sophisticated with colors such as red, black or white would be the safest option. Avoid something too flashy like a hot pink dress or something too revealing.
Most girls opt for a dress or a skirt in Sutton but classy and chic slacks can look good with a silk top and a blazer. Avoid highly ripped/distressed jeans as the bouncer will probably deny you the entry.
This is similar to what applies to guys as well. You aren’t required to wear high heels but certainly no flip-flops or running shoes. If you want something more casual a stylish pair of sneaker.
As for your make-up, less is more. You don’t want to overdo it. A touch of foundation, concealer and mascara should do the magic.
Girls can get more creative than guys with their hair and they usually have a privilege. Any style is fine but we should warn you about having a rasta hair.
There is no much limit to it. Keep it clean and classy and there will not be any problem.
Stylish tattoos are not an issue at all, unless it is on the face. As a matter of fact, we never heard of a women not being allowed to enjoy Barcelona’s nightlife due her tattoos.
