A good friend once invited me to go for a drink in this bar in Gràcia. What a fantastic recommendation! La Pròrroga (which means the extra time added on after a football match is tied at full-time) is a lively sports bar in the heart of Gràcia in Barcelona where you can serve yourself draft beer.
The way it works is quite easy: you go to the bar and buy a charge card for €1, give them your name and load the card with the amount of money you want to spend. Then, take your card and swipe it on a pad in front of the pump and pour yourself the beer of your choice: Paulaner, Heineken, Punk IPA, Amstel and Amstel 1870. Simple and quick.
You can top up your card as many times as you want and when you leave you can keep the card for another day’s session or hand it in and get your euro back.
If you don’t feel like draft beer, they have a wide selection of bottled craft beers. They also serve snacks such as hot and cold ciabbatas and bravas.
Very friendly staff. It’s a good spot to watch Barça games as well as rugby, basketball and any other sport. And interestingly, the ceiling is made of artificial grass and the walls are decorated with sports memorabilia.
I like this place because you can serve yourself the exact amount of beer you want and there is no need to wait for a waiter/ess.
