Passion for football goes big as June brings this worldwide event that no one will be missing. If you’re not so lucky as to be in Brazil right now but are dying for more football now the season is over, you might as well go to one of these 9 bars to watch the World Cup 2014 in Barcelona. Whether you’re shouting out your team’s goals or simply want to enjoy a cold beer while socializing, we’ve got the perfect place to watch your national team go for the gold.
Flaherty’s: One of the best known Irish pubs in Barcelona is a classic for good football watching. Large screens show most of the main events while we can enjoy a wide selection of beers on draught.
Scobie’s: This Irish pub in el Raval has been the choice of even Shane McGowan or Ian Dempsey. With a homely Irish feel to it and a good pint, we’ll be able to cheer for our team in one of Barcelona’s best loved Irish pubs.
The Shamrock: In hip street Carrer Tallers we can find one of Barcelona’s first Irish taverns. Since 1997 they’ve been screening most of the main sporting events around the globe. Plus we can ask for an actual bucket of beers for a fair rate.
Sports Bar Barcelona: This is THE place for tourists to go when in need for some sports viewing. Located in the Ramblas, a big bar welcomes you with various TVs where you can follow most of the main sporting events on at the moment and one giant screen to watch your favorite player score full sized.
Sonora: In the district of Poblenou, right next to Razzmatazz, you’ll find this American style sports bar with plenty of tables, good hamburgers (even for veggies), greasy nachos and a load of import beers.
L’Ovella Negra: Again in Poblenou is one of Barcelona’s largest taverns. If you’re worried about getting a seat at the last minute this is your best bet. Long wooden tables in a massive industrial building will be the best companion for the reasonably priced beer.
Surf House Barcelona: Located in Barceloneta, this bar screams “California” all over. With a surf vibe to it, we can watch the World Cup while trying one of their tasty juices served in jars and devour original sandwiches.
Polaroid Bar: A bar for the 80’s nostalgic, decorated with posters from classical eighties films, comfy sofas and even Packman themed paraphernalia. The perfect kitsch environment to take a break from the football and wonder around just looking at the walls if the match gets boring.
7 Sins: If you’re searching for a stylish place to watch a match, 7 sins is the place to go if you’re in the Eixample area. In an elegant space we can try their gourmet hamburgers and side dishes while watching your favorite team play on a huge screen.
