Who woke up this morning and was slightly devastated that it wasn’t a Bank Holiday and you had to go into work as normal? Obviously this doesn’t refer to the guys who work at Barca because we love what we do, no matter what time of the day it is! That sounds a bit cheesy doesn’t it? But don’t worry folks as next Monday is yet another Bank Holiday! Hurrah!

Our Barca bar in Castlefield was filled with both United and City fans, Liverpool and one or two Chelsea ones yesterday. It was actually quite a surreal day, as it was one of the rare occasions where both the Reds and Blues come together – to support Chelsea! It was an important match as it was yet another decider for which team will go on to win the league, so you can imagine whyaround 95% of Manchester were celebrating the Chelsea 2-0 win against Liverpool. In other words, it meant the race for the title became closer than ever! It has been an unpredictable season in football and with United’s shocking performance and the sacking of Moyes after just nine months; it’s no wonder that the Red Devils’ fans would rather City won over Liverpool. Something that I bet they never thought they’d say! Only a few more matches to go!

But don’t worry football fans, as we have the 2014 World Cup in June and we will be showing the matches late and we’ll be open late, which works out pretty well for us! Our bar in Manchester isn’t all about the football; we have the Rugby League matches on for all you Wigan Warrior fans out there, as well as great music to relax to in the sun. Plus, we have three function rooms available for hire too!

There really is no excuse not to head down to Barca bar in Castlefield! We are located in the stunning part of Manchester, have a large decked outdoor area which is on the canal side, a BBQ ready and waiting for the sun to make its appearance; as well as showing live sport matches and have function rooms for hire in Manchester. It’s just a bonus that our food is amazing and we haveRekorderlig available too!
