L’Ovella Negra – Beers and chats

This spot could definitely be one of the more well-known ones, but it remains one of my favourites. The small entranceway with low ceiling gives way to a cavernous bar, with different sections stretching off in all different directions before you. Furious chatter emanates from large groups of people with larger beers at long tables, and even considering the size, no matter what time of night you arrive there always seems to be a noisy buzz.

This is definitely far from a ‘locals only’ bar, but in some ways that’s one of the big appealing factors for me. What I love about Ovella Negra is the ease with which you can meet people. The long table design often results in sharing with strangers on either side, combine that with larger-than-average beers and you’re bound to make friends from all around the world.

The usual drinks are available but this bar really strikes me as a beer place. Any size is available, up to a novelty five-litre bucket with taps to serve yourself and your group, although if you do the maths the price isn’t really working out a lot cheaper. I usually go for a ‘jarra’ of 50cl for € 3.30, or once in a blue moon I try the sangria, which is also available in a range of silly sizes!
