Bar Fly: Barrio Cellar


Amie Barbeler sure knows her way around a Naked Lady...



Margaritas, a mariachi band and a Naked Lady in each hand... what more could you ask for on a Wednesday night?



Overtaking Spice Cellar's spot on Elizabeth Street is Barrio Chino's new venture – Barrio Cellar: a late night Mexican cantina bar that trades until 3am.



At Barrio, the focus is on tequila – just in case the massive neon 'Everything with Tequila!' sign in the entrance didn't give it away... After my date and I descended into the art-deco inspired sunken cellar and weaved our way through the excitable after work crowd, she staked us out a comfy booth, while I sorted out the booze.



I couldn’t go past Barrio's signature Tommy Margarita ($16), while my date wrapped her lips around a delicate Naked Lady ($18) with strawberry-infused tequila, cointreau, lemon and bitters.



While we drank, we people watched and munched on deliciously spicy crispy prawn and calamari tacos ($7). Tequila, tacos and tunes... consider me sold.
