New Year’s Eve at Flaherty’s
Of all the nights over the holiday period, perhaps New Year’s Eve is the most special. The presents have been bought and doled out. The turkey’s cooked and eaten. The hard work of Christmas is over. That’s why it’s the perfect time for everyone to enjoy one last big get-together. At Flaherty’s, we’re happy to host you, your friends, and your family this New Year’s Eve. With free admission before 11 p.m., there’ll be plenty of fun activities to partake in. Also, we’ll be banging out the best tunes of 2023, as well as many Irish and Catalan classics.
How is New Year’s Eve Celebrated in Barcelona?
The 12 Grapes of New Year’s Eve
Like in much of Spain, Catalans enjoy ringing in the new year by eating 12 grapes in time with the chiming of the church bells throughout the city. Each grape represents a month of the year, and eating them is said to bring good luck. At Flaherty’s, we are proud to honour this tradition in our adopted home of Barcelona, and that’s why we have two special New Year’s Eve offers for our customers to avail of.
- 1 glass of Cava with 1 packet of complimentary 12 grapes, €10
- 1 bottle of Cava with 2 packets of complimentary 12 grapes, €20
Don’t miss out on this quintessential Spanish tradition. Come to Flaherty’s this New Year’s Eve!
Christmas Holidays in Spain: Important Dates and Traditions
Many of the key dates in the Spanish Christmas calendar are similar to those in other parts of the world, but there are some. First of all, for many Spaniards, Christmas Eve rather than Christmas Day is the big family meal, and in Catalonia, St. Stephen’s Day on the 26th, much like in Ireland, is of equal importance. New Year’s Eve is perhaps the biggest celebration of the holiday season here, but for children, the most important day of all is the 6th, as this is the day that the Three Wise Men deliver presents to the children of Spain.
