     Bagdad was founded in 1975 by Rafael Lucía and Juani de Lucía. Rafael Lucía founded the Sala Bagdad in 1975, on a premises that belonged to “La Bella Dorita”, located in the historic heart of Barcelona, the couple traveled to cities such as Hamburg and Amsterdam to see explicit live sex shows. The Bagdad began with a variety show with artists, who simply took off their clothes. It then evolved to a full-blown striptease. And they brought artists from Germany that had live sex on stage. But, the police also came, and so did problems, although the venue was never shut down, at a time when people used to travel miles to Perpignan just to see would-be soft-porn films. At that time, the queues of people waiting to get in used to go round the block. It was the only place in Spain where you could watch porn, but the show is now a reference point, unique in Europe for its variety and for the audience participation element which means that no two shows are like.
     One undeniable factor that contributes to the success of the Bagdad is Juani’s perseverance, her dedication and the way she very directly handles the press and her team. Juana de Lucia manages all the shows, does the castings, costumes, gives advice, finds solutions and shares the ups and downs of all her artists. She is a bit like the mother of each and every member of the “The Bagdad family”, which is more than just an expression. Juani’s contribution as artistic director has been no less important, just like her undeniable knack for discovering new artists and helping them to shine in choreographic personalized for each one of them. And so much have they shone that they have won fame beyond the stage of the Bagdad and the borders of Club Bagdad has been featured in Rolling Stone , cosmopolitan and many other magazines.
     I first visited club Bagdag with my best friend, Heith Zarrick back in 1993. I was only 19 years old at the time and I was in Spain making my European debut as a professional boxer. I was having the time of my life back then, traveling the world as a young man with a great group of friends. I thought I had seen it all growing up around my families small chain of strip clubs in Southern Missouri, but let me tell you, you haven’t seen anything until you have been to Bagdag in Barcelona. They started off in 1975 and quickly became a worldwide reference in live porn shows. With more than 20 top-notch artists from the worldwide pornography scene, with all kinds of performances, show girls, lesbian duos, live sex, and audience participation. The client, as a spectator, can interact during the show. Doing things like helping to unfasten a bra during a strip-tease, and a lot more! Let your imagination run wild. Club Bagdag helped introduce some of the worlds greatest porn stars. If José María Ponce Berenguer is considered the father of porn in Spain, then Club Bagdag is the birth place of the Spanish porn industry, where stars of the likes of Nacho Vidal, Sophie Evans, and Toni Rivas, to name a few, have made their debut.
     To top off your experience, you can end the trip with a once in a life time glamour-packed extra, a night tour of Barcelona in a limousine, with Cava, lasting 1 hour. Maximum capacity is 8 people plus the driver. Times are 9 pm to midnight, and you can do this tour accompanied by one or several of their porn stars to make the ride even more unforgettable! Bagdads is well lit and has a unique decor where some the worlds greatest erotic entertainers perform. Club Bagdad is not only one of the greatest strip clubs ever, they have brought us some of the best porn stars ever and they have pushed the envelope for almost four decades; and for that, Club Bagdad gets the ExplicitList Stamp of Approval and my personal thanks!
