About Bocas

Bocas is an Argentinian restaurant and jazz club in Clerkenwell, whipping up a wide spectrum menu of Argentinian and Spanish tapas as well as a weekend brunch and signature cocktails in the bar. The restaurant is right in the heart of Clerkenwell, just a short walk from Saddler’s Wells and Exmouth Market.

The spacious interiors have a bright, organic vibe, with pot plants hanging from the ceiling and interiors that mix painted timber and exposed brick. Large floor-to-ceiling windows ensure that the space is well lit during the day, and when the sun goes down, a series of pendant lights cast a moody glow across the room. Head down the spiral staircase and you’ll find Bocas basement bar, complete with wooden tables and booths where you can sit and have a drink.

The restaurant is available for private hire and hosts all manner of private events, from parties and celebrations to networking events, baby showers and more. Get in touch with the Bocas team today to talk through your next private event.

One thing you can guarantee at Bocas is the catering - Bocas’ tapas menu includes comforting classics from Spain and South America, including dishes like padron peppers, spiced aubergines, empanadas, patatas bravas and quesadillas, as well as platters of cheese and jamon Iberico de Bellota. There’s also a selection of grilled dishes, including chorizo, skirt steak, sweetbreads and a cheeseburger made with Argentinian beef.

Meanwhile, the drinks menu includes a selection of wines, craft beers and classic cocktails, from pina coladas to spicy margaritas. If you’re planning a drinks party, think about hiring Bocas’ basement for your next big celebration, where bar staff can mix you drinks as you party the evening away.

Testimonials For Bocas

Work LunchNOVEMBER, 2023

We enjoyed a work lunch at Bocas. The food was fantastic and Leire's service was just perfect, attentive but not overbearing. Everything was served fresh and warm + tasty. Great cocktail menu. Would definitely visit again.
