BARRA, in Somerville’s Union Square, brings the vibrant culinary and day/nightlife experience of Mexico City to Boston. We create food and drinks that offer a culinary experience based on artisanal methods, plus fresh and rare ingredients. We continuously innovate with food, drinks, music, and visuals that convey our love for Mexico City.

What’s in for fluff at BARRA? Come see Channing, at the bar, and taste his Lavender Sour made for our end of summer cocktail list. A versatile drink that you can sub out with Pisco, Charanda, or Corn Whiskey. We wanted to build a drink with tasting notes that guests are already familiar with, but with the BARRA spin — ethereal, cloudy and some attitude! As cotton candy is a common sight in the streets of Mexico, we will use fluff fest as an excuse to highlight that visual idea with a special garnish. Salud!
