Manchester Bar – Madchester, live transmission

If you’re around the centre of Barcelona you may want to call in to this cozy bar, located on a calm street in the Gòtic Quarter. With its red walls and dim lighting and posters of Ian Curtis, Morrisey and other Madchester legends, the atmospheric Manchester Bar is a quirky spot and a great place to enjoy a beer in Barcelona’s Old Town.

What makes this bar so special is the music – you’ll hear an excellent selection of classic indie-rock and britpop, as fits with the name of the bar.

Compared to other bars around the Gothic Quarter, it’s a reasonably affordable place for the centre of Barcelona. They have a good variety of beers, and if you go before 22:00 you can get a bottle of Moritz or Heineken for only €1.50 (the normal price is €3). They also serve pisco sour, mojitos and cocktails. This is a great place to go if you find yourself in the centre and want to meet with a small group of friends – as the place is not very big. They’ll serve you a free small bowl of salty appetizers when you order a beer.

There is also another Manchester Bar in the Raval (Carrer de Valldonzella, 40), near MACBA, which is much smaller.

I like going to Manchester Bar with mates to enjoy a beer and a chilled ambience while some of my favourite music plays on in the background. All in all, this is a chuffin’ good bar.
