If you like really quiet music and no atmosphere then you’ll LOVE Bollocks. You too can sit in a sterile atmosphere in a bar that would kill to be even a tenth as soulless as even the worst Hard Rock Cafe on the planet.

Visited with friends after Rockfest. Nice small pub with good old metal songs. Good choice of drinks. Not expensive.

We went here on a Sunday night & it was busy but not heaving. We hit happy hour and got awesome F*cking mojitos which were €4 each and felt bad that they were so cheap after the effort & care that went into them!

The atmosphere in the Bollocks is funky, the music is nice but there is one mystery unsolved: most of the reviews we read about this place talk about "great cocktails". As we asked the bartender if there's a menu, he said: no. So, what kind...More

Great quirky spot in the gothic quarter. Good tunes and endless stickers on the wall to let your eye wander on. Great spot if you’re looking for something different. Cheap drinks too

Definitely the coolest and quirkiest bar in Barcelona. Awesome decor and prices are about what you'd expect. The way they've set the place out reminds you of a proper DIY punk gig venue, awesome stuff!
