    Hi,

    I am trying to translate 'bar de barrio' and 'bar de copas' into English. It is for a leaflet to advertise a new bar so the translation has to be accessible to people of different countries without loosing the meaning.

    I have translated these as:

    bar de barrio = local bar
    bar de copas = copas bar

    Would you agree with this? I left 'copas' in Spanish as the bar is advertising the Spain way of life. I have seen in another thread this referred to as 'drinking bar' but in English the word 'drinking' sounds redundant as bars in general are for drinking in.

    Thanks!

    You're most welcome, they were merely suggestions, wait for more suggestions and decide what fits better in your translations, cheers :)
