The Scene

"The slogan ""There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't met"" – borrowed from Irish bard W.B. Yeats – fits Molly's Fair City to a T, as the pub is certainly one of the best places in Barcelona for making English..."

The slogan “There are no strangers here, only friends you haven’t met” – borrowed from Irish bard W.B. Yeats – fits Molly’s Fair City to a T, as the pub is certainly one of the best places in Barcelona for making English-speaking friends over a pint or two.

Outgoing regulars from the British isles prop up the bar from early evening onwards, while a diverse and boisterous international crowd swells their numbers as the night progresses, the Guinness flows, and the speakers churn out crowdpleasing hits from the 80s to the present.

The downstairs area, with its typical wood-paneled Irish pub décor, is split into a long, narrow bar in one room and a small salon with TVs tuned to sports in another.

A more exotic vibe prevails upstairs in the cocktail lounge, where guests enter through gauze curtains and take their place on one of the banquettes or sofas, softly lit with Oriental lanterns.

Though the patrons here may switch their pints for piña coladas, the mood is no less festive, making Molly’s an excellent choice for a lighthearted night on the town.

Tip from Lucas:

There’s always some sports action going on, but if you want to get a seat for a big game, you’ll have to arrive early – Molly’s is really popular and fills up fast. The bar also has a reputation for serving some of the best Guinness in the city.

Molly's Fair... And Friendly too!
Ernst B. Nov 15, 2012
This is a great place to make friends in a foreign city, in fact – it is crawling with both locals and internationals – all with one purpose in mind: to drink beer, chill out and listen to some music. Molly’s is known for one of few places who serve Guinness (and serve it proper... They even have a little stout ultrasonic foaming machine!). The lavish top section with heavy wooden tables and upstairs bar is open from Wednesday to Sunday to accommodate more eager drinkers, creating a proper buzz. Be sure to check out the ever popular dart board game as well as the porno style pool table!
Great atmosphere with a wide range of drinks!

With it's prime location only a few blocks away from Las Ramblas and on the main street of the Gothic Quarter, Molly's is a venue which attracts tons of types of people, locals and tourists alike, to have a good time over cheap drinks, happy hour, and the cocktail of the week. With an extensive drink menu, you cannot go wrong in this popular pub. Downstairs is more of a laid back setting, with a pool table, closely placed bar stools, and 4 televisions. However, if you're looking for more of a private, relaxed time, check out the dimly lit cocktail bar upstairs for private couches separated by curtains. If you're looking to watch a big game, try to get there early to grab a seat! Otherwise, Molly's gets filled up quickly closer to midnight.
