With its vaulted ceilings and photographic tributes to Irish entrepreneurs of yesteryear, The Temple Bar is a bright and beautiful Irish pub and a fantastic pre-club stop.
A large venue with a long and spacious bar, the pub features high wood tables and stools in the more crowded front area and luxurious green leather couches and big tables in the back that offer a bit more space for lounging and watching MTV or sports on the big-screen TV.
A tiny spiral staircase leads up to a small and smoky mezzanine that overlooks the bar and is equipped with dart boards.
During the day, a constant hum of congenial chatter creates a friendly, cozy vibe, while later in the evening, the place is overtaken by a rowdier clientele of British and Irish nationals and the occasional international pub crawl crowd.
The result, especially on live music nights, is a fun – if not always sophisticated – party atmosphere that ensures there’s rarely a dull night at The Temple Bar.
Temple Bar is perfectly situated on a street packed with people around the clock. If you want to start your night a little early, go for Happy Hour between 7 and 9pm, and then move on to the other Irish pubs or more late-night venues in Plaça Reial.
Primarily international with some local regulars, somewhat male-dominated and rowdy during sporting events, 20s+. Slightly older clientele earlier in the evening.
Classic rock, Celtic jigs, and contemporary pop accompanied by projected music videos. Large-screen TV shows sports. Live music Mondays to Wednesdays.
Toasted sandwiches, grilled bratwursts, and pizza served weekends only.
Sandwiches €2.80, pizza €6. Beer €4.80+, wine €4, mixed drinks €7+, shots €3+.
Match days and any time after 9pm.
