Barrio East is set to open this November, the third site for the Latin-themed bar group.
The Shoreditch High Street venue will be divided in two: Barrio Uptown and Barrio Downtown. Self-contained Uptown will have its own entrance, classic cocktails, and is available for private hire. Downtown will offer more familiar Barrio fare – including a 1960s caravan.
The whole group is getting a new cocktail list to celebrate, with each cocktail matched to a music track – the Cape Fizz (pisco, red grapes, pear liqueur, apple juice, lemon and soda) alongside Marvin Gaye’s ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’, for example.
