If you’re visiting Marbella, you’ll most likely find yourself taking a trip to Elviria. Close to both the beach and Marbella city itself, Elviria is home to some of the best restaurants in the Costa Del Sol, a perfect spot for a great meal to suit all budgets. Elviria is such a lively little place that no matter how full you are, you won’t want to leave in a hurry. So where do you go to guarantee your night ends on a high note? Harmon’s Irish Bar.
I spent two very late nights in a row here (or should I say very early mornings?) during my last trip to Marbella. Located behind Elviria square, this bustling sports bar is perfect for a night of fun, atmosphere and of course karaoke – which is an experience not to be missed. I must admit – I have never done karaoke ever in my life, but the sense of community and warmth in the bar was contagious; a tremendous effect that owner Dave Harmon himself and his gorgeous wife Tracy have instilled in the place, which they should truly be proud of.
Dave has time for all customers, both old and new. He’s more than capable of joining in on the fun and will be glad to offer a helping hand or encouraging word (if needed!) for your stint at karaoke.
Both nights I was there, the place was literally buzzing with music and happy smiling customers…
All of whom were chatting, dancing or choosing their song to perform for karaoke…

The bar itself has plenty of seating, with flatscreen TVs for sport and a large outdoor terrace area for the warmer months. The walls are lined with signed Irish jerseys and dotted with some very Irish accents for that little touch of home. Sure, I may sound biased but the decor really is nice, simple and clean. The bar staff are very friendly and attentive, so you won’t be waiting long for a good pint or a fantastic cocktail. I highly recommend you try them all..but if I had to narrow it down to two, go for the Long Island Ice Tea or Piña Colada. You can thank me later.
The bar opens late every night, with plenty of entertainment throughout the evening depending on the day. If you’re interested in karaoke, I recommend heading down for around 10pm.
If you’re feeling hungry, the Italian restaurant Restaurante Pinzimonio (mentioned here), next door to Harmon’s serve pizzas right to the bar – a fantastic accompaniment for all those cocktails!
The nights we spent at Harmon’s were the most memorable of our trip, and we even made some friends along the way. I’m delighted to add this place to my list of Marbella traditions!
