Radio City is one of the best bars in Valencia, but it’s so unique that it’s hard to call it just a bar.

Known by locals and travellers alike as one of the best sports bars in Valencia, this Irish pub serves traditional Irish whisky and great beer on top of good vibes.

St. Patrick’s is also one of the most popular meet-up spots for international students and travellers, as they host language exchanges and other events during the week. 

4. Cafe Negrito

From the cosy, intimate interior to the expansive terrace, you can easily work your way inside and out of this Spanish bar as you mix and mingle with the other guests there.

The cafe attracts a lot of locals, which makes it the ideal spot to practice your Spanish or participate in stimulating conversations with Valencians who are eager to tell you everything they love about living in Spain.

Montaditos are a staple in the world of Spanish tapas. At Montaditos Gratis, they pretty much give them away for free. For under €2 you can get a beer with the tapa of your choice.

The bar has a pretty wide selection of beers to choose from, which means that, for very small price, you’ll be able to try more than a few as the night goes on.

If you’re able to visit this bar while there’s a local football match on, then definitely do it. It’s a cultural experience you can’t miss.

6. La Taberna Reina

If you’ve headed to Spain in search of great tapas in an authentic local tavern, then carve some time out of your travel days to relax at La Taberna Reina. The Valencia location is right in the heart of the historical centre and provides visitors with stunning views of the Valencia Cathedral.

The interior is just as elegant and cosy as the terrace, but it’s best to opt for a table outside if you can. Soak up the Spanish sun and enjoy some of the best beer and tapas in the city.
