Designed to be an authentic Spanish tapas bar, Barrica Tapas Bar on Goodge Street in London is as genuine as those on the busy streets of Barcelona. Leave the hustle and bustle of the West End behind and experience the true tastes of Spain. Barrica Tapas Bar is focused on providing a casual, relaxed environment in which you can share delicious tapas with friends, enjoy a quiet espresso and pastry, or have a glass of wine at the end of the day. Nibble on olives and salted almonds from behind the bar before you enjoy a wide selection of tapas dishes, from cured meats and cheeses to seafood tapas and vegetables. Daily and weekly blackboard specials are also available. The extensive range of drinks is just as much of a highlight at Barrica Tapas Bar. Just as the tapas dishes are influenced from all regions of Spain, the wines and sherries have all been carefully selected to offer a full reflection of Spain's fantastic diversity.
