Watched the football in there, it was rather quiet but then again who wants to watch Aston Villa play. Staff were friendly and a decent Guinness.

We stayed in the Hotel Jazz for 4 nights and I visited this brilliant bar every afternoon for a refreshing pint or two on the way back to the hotel in the hot weather. We then visited the bar on the way back to the hotel after a night out for some late night drinks as this bar was open... More

Watched some of the European Championship games here whilst in the city for a short break. Great and friendly staff (and especially knowledgeable about the area). Good selection of drinks although no food which is a shame. The Jameson bottle collection is worth the visit alone.

Easy to find on a main road not far from the ramblas. Part of a student hostel serves breakfast and snacks through out the day. Full breakfast and coffee approx €8. Also open late and offers special offers on various drinks. Good music even during breakfast.

Visited as a group of 6 and whilst it was late afternoon and not too busy the owner took time out to talk to us and get us involved in his dream. Having owned the bar for the last 15 years he knows everything about the area and the bar and how to ensure the customers enjoy the experience. Great... More

Nice Irish sports bar - good location, great staff, fine ale - a little pricey tho. And don't serve food. But apart from that a good little Irish sports bar :)

We called into Scobie's on a Wednesday night for a couple of drinks before we went for dinner. The owner was lovely, very friendly and started conversation with us. Very clean and relaxed environment. Would highly recommend to anyone

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
