Enjoy Decades of Experience
Bar.bacoa is owned and operated by longtime restauranteurs Scott & James, who have combined decades of experience behind the bar, in the kitchen and running the show. Their focus on fresh ingredients combined authentically in a way that's elevated and yet unpretentious feels so perfectly Atlanta. So much hard work, passion, and attention has gone into making a bar and restaurant worth frequenting in a city with so many options, and that passion and energy is evident in the food, drinks, and staff.
BARBACOA: SLOW-COOKED MEAT UNTIL TENDER AND FLAVORFUL
This form of cooking meat originated in the Caribbean with the Taíno people, from which the term "barbecue" derives. A traditional Mexican way of eating barbacoa is having it served on warm corn tortillas with salsa for added flavor; the tacos are often eaten with diced onions, chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice.
DRINK WITH FRIENDS: COOL COCKTAILS AND EXOTIC BEERS.
You won't find stock bottles of sour mix at Bar.bacoa — James and Scott insisted on only using real, fresh versions of traditional mixers and juices to pair with the premium selection of fine tequilas. Craft beers on tap, rich red wines, and crisp whites round out the drinks menu to pair perfectly with your tapas.
