Placa Espanya is a popular place for tourists and those visiting the plethora of trade fairs in this area. There are a lot of hotels and tourist friendly restaurants so you are likely to find places where English is spoken - at least at a basic level. Although I wouldn't say this bar is one of those, it's certainly a great place to go in large numbers and to spend the night playing pool (four good quality tables), darts or even ping-pong! This is a large bar for Barcelona, the drinks are nice and cheap and the music is lively although a little 'young' for my taste. If you get peckish during your evening, there is a good menu with plenty to chose from and if you are one of the modern breeds of non-smokers you'll find this place nice and toxic free! All in all it's a very good bar, not eclectic or particularly special in a Barcelona way but likely to be rammed with plenty of locals, ex-pats and tourists alike. Highly recommended!

Beers are 1.85 which is cheap for BCN! I've heard that the food is not great but will confirm once I've given it a go!

Good place downtown for pool at €1.50 a game, and, yes, the beers are pretty cheap.
