My second favourite ex-aequo bar would be the Radio City in the centre with its eclectic music, the worldwide origins of the people and a different live flamenco music and dance show every week...!
Christopher Banditt says:
Don't miss club Ra-adio City!
Brian Donovan says:
There are lots of different things to enjoy at Radio City, making it a pretty popular nightspot. Not only is it a great place for drinking and hanging out, it’s also a top spot for catching flamenco music and dancing, with a live show taking place each week.
Location: Calle Santa Teresa 19, Barrio del Carmen.
Jose Vicente Rausell says:
The "Montaditos gratis" at Avenida Valladolid is just amazing. For 1'3€ you get a beer with the tapa of your choice. Cheap, tasty and full of good atmosphere although it can get a bit crowded.
Long-running Valencia bar Montaditos Gratis is a very popular spot thanks to its great selection of beers as well as its incredibly affordable tapas and beer deals. Keep in mind that the place does get pretty packed on the weekend and at times when there’s a major football game.
Location: Avenida Valladolid 24, Benimaclet.
St. Patrick’s Irish Pub
Alonso Cara says:
Saint Patrick’s Irish pub the best Irish bar in Valencia
Located at the heart of the city, St. Patrick’s Irish Pub serves up a wide variety of drinks from Irish whiskeys to beers on tap to imported bottled beers. Four TV screens are dotted around the bar showing football, rugby, cricket and plenty more. If you’d prefer to play rather than watch, you can have a go at the pool table or dart board. Plenty of events are hosted throughout the week including a Language Exchange which takes place every Thursday from 8.30pm to 11pm.

It is the Black Note, with its nice live music sessions, cool atmosphere, practical location and welcoming staff :)
Offering live music on most nights of the week with performances from jazz bands, blues acts and plenty more, this is a great place to check out if you’re into music. At the bar you’ll find a variety of reasonably priced drinks, another reason to add Black Note to your list of bars to check out in Valencia.

La Bolsería is one of the most popular disco bars. Located in Barrio del Carmen, it’s a favourite with those who want to dance the night away to the sound of loud, mainly R&B music. Plenty of drinks are available at this spot when tends to attract a younger crowd.
Location: Calle Bolseria 41, Barrio del Carmen.
