Good spot to watch big events. Be careful however, the locals book tables well in advance for major sport games. I was there for the World Cup 2014, bar staff were excellent food was 'bar grub'. Free wifi available

On the positive side, it is a big bar with many screens to watch sport, a pool table, electronic darts board and table football. But it is €4 a beer and the staff are not particularly friendly. We didn't eat but we looked in the restaurant and many people had left food on their plates.

Was in Madrid and wanted to catch some of the Olympics so went to Marca. The waiter was visibly upset when we only ordered beer and nachos, he thought we were going to order dinner. Nachos were horrible - we sent them back. The second batch was fine, but net is that this place has inconsistent food and service.

The main reason we visited this place was due to a recommendation from a guy back in the states. They apparently played American football games on TV and I was really hoping to see my Raiders play. The place itself is reminiscent of any chain sports bar you might go to in the US, such as Buffalo Wild Wings or... More

This bar was recommended to me by a business relation who lives in Madrid. It was just perfect to look at the game I wanted to see, and had a great ambiance. Plenty of screens everywhere, and the food is just what you expect of any sports bar : good but nothing special, and at a reasonable price. The service... More

Great bar if you like sports! There are loads of screens and if they aren't playing the match/game you want, just find a free screen and they will play whatever you request!
