The Shamrock bar in Barcelona open since May ’97, it is an establishment that is worth another look. While Barcelona is known for its trendy and hipster following places, the Shamrock has stuck to its roots. The bar is below the central Universitat metro and the busy Tallers Street in Eixample.
The Shamrock is an Irish pub flooded with wood, decorated in green tones and warm lighting. Therefore, it is a cozy space that gives the best scenery to enjoy an authentic beer, which we can alternate with games of billiards, foosball or darts.
It is supposedly the 4th Irish pub to be opened in Barcelona, the classic Irish name, of course, refers to the four-leaf clover which represents the Irish luck. All the icons of rock, blues, soul and jazz adorn the walls. The Customers are placed on top at this bar, that is why it’s usually filled with a young and cosmopolitan crowd. Pedro, the owner, explains that they go out of their way to treat each newcomer as an old friend, which is the true Irish pub culture. Furthermore, you’ll be able to listen to the hits of the 60’s right through to the modern classics.
The Shamrock is usually showing football matches, but more interestingly, there is a large room in the back perfect for a good game of pool, and sometimes jam sessions by Pedro’s band or other locals, you’ll be able to find an assortment of instruments. They’ve also started an initiative to start hosting live stand up comedy in English.
