Address
Neighbourhood: Barrio Gòtico (Barri Gòtic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.

We've just been to Barcelona, Feb 21st - 24th, and while searching for interesting and alternative bars, the Bollocks came up as somehwere we should definitely worth checking out.

From anywhere in the Gothic Quarter it's an easy find, and you'll soon be on it's doorstep waiting to take the plunge inside. The decor is just what you would expect from a rock venue, the quirkiness has been well thought out, every little detail is on point.
The bar is well setup, plenty of bottles and spirits to choose from. I only saw one draught beer and one ale, the rest from bottles.
The bar staff are really friendly, and so helpful. One even brought to the attention of my girlfriend that I shouldn't leave my phone unattended while at the bar. A nice touch.
We decided to eat on our first visit, the bar has the usual burgers, nachos, etc. But it was fantastic. Far better than we expected. And when you order onion rings, you get a huge plate. The food and drinks are really reasonably priced, catering for visitors who probably frequent cheap rock/alternative bars.
It does get busy, it's loud, but it's perfect! Our party was myself, my girlfriend and our 15 year old daughter, and we all felt comfortable and safe. Highly recommend this bar for a visit to anyone.

Make sure you add it to your list of places to go.

We ended up here twice during our visit to Barcelona, very reasonable beers and prices, 3 euro a pint and the bar staff very friendly though beware may take some time to be served if you walk through the door at 7pm when it opens whilst they are setting up but well worth the wait, ended up on the cocktails on both occasions which were excellent as well. If you like ths bar then Hell Awaits is another you must visit.

We went here a couple of times during our trip - originally drawn in by it's quirky name. The vibe is very 80's-90's rock and there are some cool quirks like the flight case tables and drum tables. Drinks prices are expensive (like anywhere in Barcelona) but we enjoyed rhe atmosphere.

How can i start? Rate good place a real diamond in the rough, beer was cheap got served straight away! Thought we’d get some ‘snacks’ got onion rings, patatas and nachos. Small is not the word, these were MASSIVE and AMAZING, all cooked to perfection never had a bar snack like these before. Everyone there seems legit and cool! Speak good english due to we speak bad spanish and all round awesome place!

Lovely bar with good happy hour and a great food selection we really liked it here! All staff were friendly and helpful (I’m terrible with attempting to speak Spanish, I tried but they helped!)

The food was amazing! Thanks for a good night!
