HDP is the best place to play pool in Gracia and one of the best in the whole of Barcelona. Wave goodbye to ripped felt, wonky cues and pockmarked balls and enjoy a superior pool playing experience on one of the 7 tables. The bar area is where there is a variety of games ranging from chess, darts, cards, dominoes and even a pinball machine, ensuring that all ages, IQs and levels of drunkenness are catered for. Two large plasma tellies make this bar an excellent choice for watching football with the locals, especially Barcelona matches. Don't be put off by HDP's pool hall status; it draws a young, friendly crowd and there are just as many girls as guys. This ex-pat favourite has a lot of character and a lively atmosphere which puts many of Gracia's trendier bars to shame.

Update 2018 - Along with Retruc near Plaça España, HDP is still the best place to play pool by the hour in Barcelona.

OK it's a good pool bar but for a snob like me, I can only recommend as a very functional bar, good for pool but I wouldn't hang out there otherwise!
