C A M A R A D A S el barrio is a worker’s public house where camaraderie is built atop of a fine selection of wine, great beers from around the world, excellent music, gallery space and an innovative blend of the tapas tradition with Puerto Rican cuisine.
This uniquely styled space (designed by Daniel Gonzales/ Blue Collar Worker and owners Raúl Rivera, Orlando Plaza and Jay Zhao), reflects an industrial and rustic feel in its wood and metal design and decor. True to its working-class roots, C A M A R A D A S el Barrio celebrates the spirit of the unsung heroes; the factory workers and laborers whose hard work and sweat help make New York City one of the industrial and financial centers of the world. This legacy of our working-class parents and grandparents has become a bright star in the Spanish Harlem bar, restaurant and entertainment scene.
Led by a creative and innovative kitchen staff, C A M A R A D A S has gained instant fame for redefining through quality and freshness traditional nuevo Puerto Rican and Latino cuisine in Upper Manhattan. The “entremeses” include alcapurrias, a tasty mofongo, an array of salads, skewed satay chicken and shrimp, spicy calamari, our own Barrio burger, chocolate empanadas and many other mouth-watering delights.
C A M A R A D A S el barrio has become a destination for those seeking quality entertainment in Upper Manhattan. Join us for a pint, intelligent conversation and great entertainment. On Thursday come and experience the sounds of the Afro-Caribbean Diaspora led by Yerbabuena and other Afro-Caribbean groups from Cuba, the Dominican Republic/Haiti and Colombia.
