Plaça Espanya is a popular place for tourists and those visiting the plethora of trade fairs in this area. This bar is certainly a great place to go in large numbers and to spend the night playing pool (four good quality tables), foosball, darts or even ping-pong! This is a large bar for Barcelona standards, and 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. 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!

Update 2018 - If you're looking to drink some beers and shoot some pool, Retruc is the place to go if you're down near the Plaça Espanya area. Retruc is kind of a "sports bar", but where the clientèle are expected to partake in the games. That said, Retruc will also show the main Barça games on a big projector in the back hall, and can be a good alternative to the tourist pubs in the center of town if you're willing to walk or metro down to Plaça Espanya.

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.
