English term or phrase: yellow bar
No, what I could do was sit in those yellow bars. With the journalists. Men falling in their pints. There was a breed of us, you see, and we weren't mere reporters.

¿Cómo entendéis este yellow? ¿Como bares cutres?

¿Un "bar de los enteradillos"?

¿Un bar avant-garde?

De acuerdo con lo que Taña aporta en la "discussion", "seedy" como "bar sórdido" o "bar de mala muerte" seguramente podría funcionar.

(Oxford también aporta "cutre" aquí)

Creo que "sórdido" podría funcionar bastante bien, ahora que lo veo.

bar de amarillistas


Explanation:
Es posible que yellow haga alusión a yellow journalism o yellow press, es decir, a la prensa amarilla o amarillista. Según lo que investigué, este texto tiene como protagonista a un crítico de teatro con dificultades para desarrollar ideas propias.

Podríamos decir que el protagonista iba a bares frecuentados por periodistas amarillistas.

agree  JohnMcDove: Sí, puede ser, como anoté en la "discussion". Aunque tendería a inclinarme por la versión "sórdida". A ver qué dicen los nativos... ;-)
