The Best Pubs and Beer Gardens in Barcelona

Updated: 23 October 2017
There’s something uniquely special about the atmosphere you get in a good pub. Whether you’re in Brisbane or Birmingham, you know what to expect when you step through the door and see the pint glasses and beer mats on the bar. Barcelona is home to a few good pubs, offering classic ales, local craft beers and standard pub grub.

Located on the Via Laeitana, one of the main roads in central Barcelona, Dunne’s Irish bar is busy most days of the week and popular with travellers due to its location. Especially busy during sports season, they have a number of large TV screens and large, cozy seating booths. The kitchen serves classic pub fare, including home-made pies which aren’t half bad.

Probably the most Irish of the Irish pubs in Barcelona, Michael Collins is a guaranteed good craic on a Monday night when they host live music. Other nights you can expect live sports, pub quizzes and a rather warm, friendly atmosphere within metres of the Sagrada Família.

Modestly claiming to be ‘the best bar in Barcelona’, the George Payne has certainly built a reputation for being a rather lively night out. The kind of place that welcomes stag parties with open arms, hosts beer pong nights ever Monday and isn’t afraid to serve cocktails in litre jugs, there’s also sports, karaoke and fancy dress parties.

La Caseta del Migdia

Bar, Spanish, Barbeque, $$$
Save to wishlist

By no means a pub, the Caseta del Migdia is however one of the most scenic places to grab a beer in the sun in Barcelona. Perched on the edge of Montjuïc hill, overlooking the Mediterranean sea, the bar is little more than a hut with a huge outdoor terrace and a barbecue pit. Only open afternoons on Saturdays and Sundays, the barbecue serves grilled sausages and chicken with salads and grilled corn on the cob.
