In Spain tapas are a way of life & a ritual. 

What the tapas bar represents is more than just a place to fuel up, it’s about the spirit of togetherness.  That is what we are trying to achieve, it’s always about the company you’re with.

Our goal is to capture the essence of a tapas bar and share it with San Francisco. barvale, located at 661 Divisadero Street in San Francisco’s NoPa neighborhood, is designed to be a transitional space that transports and delights. It will also function as a meeting spot for friends and as a stop among many on an evening out.  Our bar will serve unpretentious cocktails, Spanish wine, sherry, and cider. Food–paella included–will be served tapas style. barvale is the essence of Spanish culture; it will be inexpensive and filled with people enjoying bites and drinks late into the night.

FOOD

We work with quality products sourced from California to create a menu that evokes the Spanish way of eating, meaning plates are small and designed for sharing. We draw inspiration from traditional Spanish tapas culture to create dishes that are well-executed and simple in their presentation.
