Sports Bar...celona?
July 5, 2010 6:54 PM   Subscribe

Can you recommend a good place for a small group of visiting Canadians to watch the Spain-Germany World Cup match in Barcelona?

None of us speak more than a few words of Spanish, and we'll be coming from out of the city into Catalunya Square. From there we're fine with bumbling about the city via the metro or bus. Any favourite spots among MeFite Spaniards?

Bonus question: Can you recommend a good place to watch the finals and third-place game in Bilbao this weekend?

I would imagine pretty much any bar with a TV screen will be showing the match, given the national team is playing.

Plugging Sports Bar, Barcelona into Google Maps Espania gives a load of touristy Irish pubs and the like, but you're probably better heading into central Barcelona and seeing if a) there's any outdoors big screens being set up and b) any random bars full of locals you can crash. The only Spanish you'll really need is 'Quatro cerveza por favor'.

Have fun.
