Tabakalera Card



Due to the declared state of alarm to manage the health crisis caused by Covid-19, from June 1st and temporarily, no new Tabakalera cards will be made. Sorry for the inconvenience

Getting a Tabakalera card is simple, fast and easy. And, most importantly, it offers you advantages for various services of the cultural project. In addition, it is the key that allows you to access all services of the Ubik creation library.

To get a card, follow these simple steps:


  1. Register on the Tabakalera website.

  2. Come to the ​​Ubik reception area. Do not forget to bring your ID card, passport or residency card. There, we will verify that the details are correct, take a photo which will identify you on the card and print it. Remember that if you are under 18, you will need a parental or guardian consent.*

  3. That's all! Now you can start using it.


First step > Register



What can you do with a card?

  • Borrow content and documents from Ubik (books, magazines...) for use during a period of one month.*

  • Use Ubik spaces: Greenhouses, the Ubik deck, the experimental cinema viewing room, video game stations, three technology corner stations and editing stations.

  • Borrow audiovisual resources from Ubik (camcorders, cameras, sound recorders, laptops ...) to use over a period of up to 5 days.**

  • Use musical instruments in the sound corner: drums, a trumpet, a trombone, a bass and a guitar, to play them in the library.

  • In addition, although you do not yet have your card, you can reserve spaces, content resources and instruments just by registering on the website.
