Party Earth Obama Review

The Scene

Obama in L'Eixample, Barcelona is a British pub with crazy décor, nightly live music, & a fun crowd. Find the President in Barcelona with Party Earth.

Given the name, patrons might expect a lot of presidential kitsch, yet apart from a rather jarring mannequin – more on that in a second – Obama is mainly a British-themed pub with a mainly Spanish menu and mainly soccer on its TVs.

Much of the three-level interior is covered in fake British memorabilia, including maps, firearms, taxidermy, flags, reproduction mining company logos, and much (MUCH!) more.

One could argue – and one probably has – that the décor is a bit tacky, yet the varied crowd milling about this weird history museum-cum-restaurant covers a broad spectrum, from amped-up sports fans looking for their international match to festive locals dancing to nightly bands to gaggles of tourists enjoying relatively budget-friendly nosh in a prodigiously overpriced part of town.

The menu is fairly standard, with tapas and sandwiches and a few pizza and pasta dishes, while the drinks list carries a good assortment of imported beers and lots of bright, fruity cocktails to help carry the night.

Pop, rock, and funk dominate the evening’s music, all of which tends to get the unpretentious regulars on their feet…and plenty of drunken college girls onto the smiling replica of the 44th U.S. President perched on a bench near the entrance.

Bizarre or brilliant – who’s to say? But Obama’s late-night hours make it a good stop for those in the area, no matter where their political affiliations reside.
