A Beer Hall that claims to represent the “beach culture” of Southern California - slightly odd location to the north of Placa Urquinaona therefore, but this new bar certainly has the feel of a modern, chic space with a hipsters' atmosphere. There's an impressive selection of all styles of beer, and the staff are happy to educate you on the ales offered. Tasters are available, so you can try before you buy if you want to tickle your taste buds with something new. There's the ubiquitous TV for sports events, including NFL and other American sports, as well as the standard Euro/UK proper football matches. But this isn't a sports bar, so the vibe is very much more sociable - an atmos enhanced by the large table benches that encourage mixing with others. It's very much aimed at the hipster tourist market, so expect superior service and superior prices (compared to local standards that is). But if you like your ales and you want a change from the "Irish ex-pat pub" experience then CocoVail is done really well.
