Barrio Central Bar
A small looking venue just down the road from Rupert street - the Barrio Central bar is something of a hawaiian or exotic drinks venue with a restaurant upstairs. The venue is pretty popular, there is a queue outside and after checking our bags we head downstairs to a loud and very busy bar. The room is very narrow and clearly over capacity as we flail and reach over for cocktail menus among the other waiting drinks at the bar. The service is pretty fast even for the stranger additions to the order, they have a good selection of spirits and a happy hour to boot. Within an hour the room is dancing and the odd mud hut mockup next to the DJ booth is teeming with folks heading in and out.
Overall a very good night out, the happy hour really hits the spot and the atmosphere was great - the only drawback is the miniture size - 7/10
