Seattle Weekly's Description

Located on arguably the classiest stretch of 12th Avenue - with neighbors like Tavern Law, Plum and Lark - Barrio serves re-imagined, "Northwest-inspired" Mexican cuisine. Despite its moniker, meaning "neighborhood," it's hard to picture this upscale establishment as a local watering hole. It has, however garnered quite a reputation with its Latin-inspired craft cocktails and thoughtfully compiled lunch, dinner and brunch menus. If that double dollar sign is giving you sticker shock, never fear: tacos are $3 each during happy hour and the excellent margaritas are a few bucks off.

    Fun and innovative drinks that are also pretty awesome. Food here is good too; I've never been disappointed while adventuring on the menu. Small portion, maybe?

    Barrio is known for its awesome drink list - so long and the mixologist really put some thought into it!

Tips from foursquare

  • The Seattle Times on 05/12/10

    Features a wide selection of gourmet tacos such as pork shoulder with raisins and almonds. Pretty underappreciated for its tequila bar, which features 60 different tequilas, all half off on Mondays.

  • Seattle Met on 11/10/11

    Grandly scaled, candle-bedecked locations on both sides of Lake Washington have a touch of corporate chill, but the tequila-focused bar program is on par with the best in town.

    Amazing cocktails - sit at the bar always
