Barrio Cocktail Bar & Cafe Review

Barrio Cocktail Bar & Cafe is featured in these Guides:

You have to admit, that’s quite a good name for a South American styley drinking hole isn’t it? Barrio as in Mexican slum but also as in Bar Rio. Ha! Well, I like it anyway.

This teeny bar is set in the lovely Battersea Square. Whereas Trafalger Square attracts pigeons Battersea Square attracts the middle class and those prams with monster truck wheels. Though the space inside Barrio is non-existent there are plenty of outside tables and really this venue is especially worth coming to in the summer.

It’s especially good on a Sunday evening when they have live jazz from 7pm, when you can sit back on your aluminium chair with a cold Negra Modelo (£3 a bottle and there’s table service) and perhaps a plate of quesadillas (even better, go to the excellent Indian restaurant next door and enjoy the same ambience and music but a very fine curry). What a marvellous way to end your weekend.

“I stumbled across Barrio when I moved to Battersea, and now I won't go anywhere else. The location is fabulous - more Chelsea than anywhere else, with outdoor seating, perfect for the last few weeks of summer. The staff are lovely - they are quick to recognise you, and take care of you when you are there. And finally the cocktails are divine - I am not much of a tequila drinker but their margharitas are the best I have had in london - they don't skimp on the tequila or the lemon, so they have a definitive kick about them. The music is funky, the crowd are trendy. I am moving away from Battersea now but I will continue to go back to Barrio, its the best cocktail bar I have found in London so far.”

“I love this bar. It's welcoming, it's stylish, it's relaxed and it's flexible. We go on a Sunday afternoon to read the paper and have coffee, we go with a big group of mates to get drunk on the fantastic range of cocktails and beers and we go for a quick pint just before closing time for a chat with the staff. I even class the bar staff as good fiends of mine now! I don't know why I'm writing this review because I want Barrio all to myself!”

“If you're looking for a cool but attitude-free bar in Battersea, then look no further. Barrio's friendly bartenders serve up great cocktails (their mojitos are best I've tasted) and the stylishly under-stated Mexican interior and comfy sofas make it a great place to while the cold winter nights away and come summer they have al-fresco drinking in Battersea Square.”

“Excellent Shoreditch-style 'lounge' bar in Battersea Square. Wide variety of good size 'real' cocktails (not just ice!), fine wines and mexican bites. The staff are very friendly and will guide you through your drinking experience. Good music and atmosphere!”
