In Spain tapas are a way of life & a ritual.
At barvale, we aim to capture the essence of a tapas bar by transporting the people of San Francisco to Spain via our transitional space and varying dining experiences that excite and delight. barvale is the perfect meeting spot for friends looking to grab a quick drink and bite, and also serves as one stop among many on an evening out. Our bar serves unpretentious cocktails, Spanish wine, sherry, and cider. Food is served tapas style, which allows guests to sample a variety of our craveable dishes. Our happy hour features authentic Spanish pintxos for $1 each. Like in Spain, guests are charged by the number of toothpicks on their plate, which makes for a unique and interactive experience. Brunch features California classics with Spanish flair and flavors, like our very popular brunch paella.
Join us at barvale every day of the week and enjoy Spain at its very core: celebratory, delicious and inclusive.
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.
