Barrio Bars is a group of London-based bars with a prominent Latin American vibe and aesthetic. It has sites spanning Shoreditch (its flagship bar), Angel, Brixton and Soho and is available to hire for parties and events, from birthday celebrations to corporate occasions. Its Soho branch can be found on Poland Street for an easy-to-access location in central London.
The venue is split over two floors and offers a warm and relaxing neighbourhood vibe, while drawing on an eclectic mix of Latin cities, cultures and quarters. On the ground floor, discover the mind-bogglingly colourful dining area complete with orange and yellow geometric-patterned walls, bright blue booth seating and sunshine yellow tables. The good times will most definitely roll if you book this space, which can hold up to 24 people seated.
Downstairs, however, is where the party really gets started. It's comprised of a main bar, Frida’s Corner and Alcove and the intimate Stone Clad area. The Basement Bar, if hired in its entirety, can hold up to 140 standing or 50 seated and includes use of the dancefloor and various seating options. It’s a vibrant and colourful area with various murals decorating the walls and an orange colour scheme throughout. If you want to just hire a section of the basement, Frida’s Corner and Alcove is a unique area that dons portraits of Frida Khalo hung against floral wallpaper, as well as a variety of tables and pink booth seating throughout. This space holds up to 20 seated, or 45 standing. There’s a slightly more intimate booth area at the back of the room – the Stone Clad – which can seat 12 people around a bright pink sofa for smaller parties.
In addition to a range of standout spaces, the venue also offers extra facilities including a DJ booth and audio equipment, a stage and live music capabilities, projector and microphone and free wifi.
