Venue Description

About BARcelona Tapas
We pride ourselves in creating a traditional authentic Tapas Bar atmosphere. This includes our warm decor and the traditional hanging of Serrano hams and dried bacalaos. Our service reflects a traditional tapas experience as you might find in Madrid, Barcelona or Sevilla.

Tapas-style service means that food is prepared to order and delivered to the table plates at a time. We do not intend on delivering all the food in traditional course style, or the entire table at once. This way you will be able to enjoy an authentic tapas evening that encourages sharing of plates, lots of gossip and sangria.

What is Tapas?

The word ‘tapas’ literally means ‘lid,’ and the origin of the tapas custom most probably lies in the placing of a small plate or lid over a glass of wine when served in the neighborhood bodegas.It is also said that a centuries-old decree insisted all bars and roadhouses serve food as an accompaniment to wine, in an attempt to ensure at least a modicum of sobriety among the nation’s coach drivers.

A tapa is a delicious morsel of food that defines a lifestyle as well as a culinary style. Tapas in Spain are almost always accompanied by wine, but they are as much about talking as they are about eating and drinking. The wine is, perhaps, the medium that holds the conversation, the friends, and the food together. The primary purpose of tapas is to talk to friends, to share the gossip of the day.

Event Type: Birthday Parties
"I called in a few days ahead of our party and was able to create an individualized menu for an amazing price. They worked with me on what I wanted and the price I wanted it to be. The moment we arrived our table was ready and food started coming out. The Chef even came out to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The server was fantastic and we never went a moment without what we needed. Plus the Sangria is perfection. We will go back and do this again. THANKS!!"
