Placa Joaquim Xirau 2. All crunch matches, such as play offs, derbies, finals and special events etc, are televised with English commentary… and with plenty of drinks promos behind the bar you can expect a raucous atmosphere to go with the occasion.
The Wild Rover Another very centrally located haven of all things sporting, you can find this homely wood-panelled Irish pub at the bottom of Las Ramblas, where it screens not only the Spanish and English football, but also the Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1, and both the Champions League and Europa League, on its two giant projectors and six large plasma screen TVs.
Yes they love the beautiful game here, so be prepared to make this your second home when Euro kicks off. Those with green blood running through their veins can also catch all the action from the Gaelic Athletics Association.

Sonora Sports Tavern A big studenty beer hall with huge screens, Sonora is a great place to watch Barca in action and other La Liga matches and will be a certainty for all Spain games during any World Cup or European Championships year.

D9 This lively student bar is a notch above most of the boozers in the area and is especially busy during the weekends, as the 18 to early 20s crowd fuels up on cheap beer.
