After a great Sam Adams tour we headed to this place. It is a bar/restaurant environment with great options of bites and drinks. Try the chicken pimientos, a must.

Food is on average but far from real Spanish one as the name recalls. Portion small compared to price. I made the only reservation possible with a voice box but when I arrived they did not have anything and they tried to save the situation...More

My friend Jeff has been a regular here for several years. His son insisted we come to say goodbye to Ted, a bartender he’d known. That type of loyalty doesn’t come easily, especially when you consider that this place is a chain trying to expand...More

I loved Barcelona. The food was amazing and timely and the ambiance was super cool. The staff forgot one of our orders, but then brought it out fast and took it off the bill. Avoid if you don’t like tapas style - but it reminded...More

Barcelona meets Brookline, and a sophisticated Boston neighborhood has a wine bar to call its own. A historic town located minutes from downtown Boston, Brookline is the perfect mixture of urban and country living. From large estates and recreational parks to boutiques and pedestrian-filled streets, Brookline offers a city atmosphere in a suburban setting. Located in Washington Square at 1700 Beacon Street, Barcelona is the newest addition to this lively neighborhood dining destination. A mix of antique wire glass, steel and reclaimed wood gives our newly built space a vintage appeal. The rustic, polished environment is the next best thing to eating tapas and drinking wine in our restaurant's namesake city. With hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious patio, the space has a European charm which fills the menu as well.
