A taste of Spain right here in St. Louis!

We pride ourselves in creating an authentic tapas bar atmosphere. From the warm decor, with traditional hangings of Serrano hams and dried bacalao, to our service style - everything about BARcelona is designed to evoke communal and celebratory spirit found in the tapas bars of Madrid, Barcelona, and Sevilla. 


What are Tapas?

A tapas are delicious morsels of food that define 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. 


What makes a Tapas Bar different than normal restaurants?

Tapas style service means that food is ordered to share and delivered to the table a few plates at a time, instead of all at once. This way you will be able to enjoy an authentic tapas evening that encourages sharing of plates, stories, and plenty of sangria.
