Shôko has to be one of the best Hip Hop/R’n’B’ club in Barcelona. It’s located right next to Opium and Pacha but it differentiates itself with their style of music played. When it comes to getting in the club, it is a tough as any other clubs located in the area, where the dress code is quite strict.
Men’s Dress Code
For Shôko, 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.
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 shoe. Bouncers do check if your shoes are clean or not, so beware of it.
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 may cause you some issues as it is not “allowed” in the upscale clubs of Barcelona
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 Shôko compared to guys. Aim for something high class and sophisticated with colors such as red, black or white would be the safest option. The club doesn’t have much restriction in regard to what girls shouldn’t wear, just avoid any type of sportswear.
Most girls opt for a dress or a skirt in Shôko but classy and chic slacks can look good with a silk top and a blazer. Avoid highly ripped/distressed jeans and sweatpants 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 will totally make the cut.
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 tattoo.
