Barca is a gorgeous bar on 11th Avenue in Capitol Hill. Pronounced "Bar-sa", the bar offers up drinks from around the world in a high-class atmosphere. Large, high-backed velvet seats curve around tables. A high metal balcony, clad in velvet curtains, overlooked the entire bar area. Overall, the bar has a dark European flair.
The drinks were excellent. We enjoyed the last of the mint in our mojitos. A variety of beer and wine is also on offer. With its location next to the Vogue, it was a great choice for a pre-club drink and yet I could imagine whiling away an entire evening here, listening to the well-spun world music and sipping on fancy cocktails.
