How long have you been living in PV?
I moved here about 2 ½ years ago.
What inspired you to open a bar?
Opening a bar was always in the back of min mind ever since I worked at one 10 years ago. There is something unique about working in the service industry – it’s hard and it’s not for everyone – but when I can change a stranger’s day from bad to great, it feels so rewarding.
How long have you been open?
We opened on October 16, just two months ago. We’re open every day from 5 PM util 2 AM. We comply with Covid protocols and provide an atmosphere where people can feel safe and relax.
What sort of clientele do you have? How would you describe your bar?
We have a great mix of ex-pats and Mexicans – most of them are local and that was exactly our goal when we first opened. It had to be – there were no tourists. We’re not a tourist trap, we’re local flavor. Our vibe is really chill – we want you to feel at home – with great quality drinks, yummy pizza and amazing music that won’t break the bank. Mi casa, su casa.
The one drink you make really well…
This is a tough question! I like to say we make everything really well – but a popular favorite with our guests is our cardamom + grapefruit + gin + tonic. It’s a simple drink but unusual.
How has Covid affected you?
I’m used to big changes in life but I don’t think anyone was prepared for what unfolded. The first half of the year was the hardest but now we have a new normal, don’t we?
Visit Barcito at Guerrero 339 (not far from the former Revolution Bar) any night but especially this Friday to enjoy the acoustic sounds of Bobbi & Eva. Dogs welcome!
