Worst Service EVER!. I used to go to Barca a couple times a month but stopped going because it became a bit tired and the crowd seemed to be mostly of the Belltown and Bellevue set out to visit the Hill. I thought I would stop by with a friend last night and see if the crowd had improved and it had. The service however was the WORST I have ever experienced. The bartender was good when he gave us our first round but when we moved to a booth we were given the cold shoulder by the servers and told by the buser that she couldn't send one over. No excuse for that level of service. I didn't leave a tip and they decided to add one anyway. NEVER AGAIN! I also will make sure to share this awful experience with everyone I know. The only reason Barca is getting two stars is the bartender was good.
I love this place!. I really enjoy this place on weekday evenings for chilling out after work or class. The ambiance is fabulous, and it's really fun if you are able to grab a seat in the big couches. It gets a little loud for my taste after about 9:00 on the weekends--there's no dancing, so I'm not sure why they keep the music so loud. I hate having to scream at the person sitting 6 inches away from me. But it's my favorite place for a snack and a cocktail after a busy day! (If you want food, the Barca Tortas are fabulous and come with frozen grapes--yummy and fun).
Amazing Staff!!. The place is slow during the week but it defiantly gets crowed on the weekends. Wait time for a drink is about 5 min, but the bar tenders are friendly and so are the bouncers :)
BEST BAR IN SEATTLE. The best place to enjoy a cocktail with friends for an amazing experience. Barca has the best drinks, atmosphere and service in Seattle. Go have a drink and see for yourself!
Great place to discover new bands.. It was the very first bar I entered after arriving in Seattle a couple of hours earlier. Two promising rock - drum 'n base style groups performed accompanied with dancing acts. I enjoyed the music and the show although downstairs it was remarkably cold. Upstairs was all warm and cosy and a little alternative. I'm sure I'll visit Barca in the future again to discover some more new bands and have some more beers.
good date place. swanky atmosphere....strong drinks, i really like it here--they play rock and roll, metal...keep the music varied.....very cool place
Sumptuous, Capitol Hill bar offers an oasis of velvety, European-style elegance..
From its gargantuan, mosque-style wooden doors and cobalt blue exterior, to its hand-tiled, curving mosaic bar and blown-glass light fixtures, Barca oozes Euro-Mediterranean cool. A custom-built, moss-green sofa with curves to make EMP designer Frank Gehry proud stands out against oxblood-red walls and wrought-iron rail workings. A spacious upper level and fireplace nook offer respite for a pan-city crowd of surprisingly laid-back urbanites.
In keeping with its continental presentation, Barca provides nearly 26import beers on tap--but don't worry, local favorites like Alaskan Amber and Mac and Jack's also make the list. Choose from an extensive selection of ports and wines, ranging from $5 a glass to $55 a bottle. A full liquor bar is also available, as is a limited bar menu.
Love this place. Best drinks, best looking people, best bar around. I feel like I'm not is Seattle anymore when I enter this bar.
HOT SPOT!. Oh just the best around town, nothing but the best of everything, I just can't say enough about this place!
Good Times. Everything was great, everyone was beautiful, I'll be back. It would be hard to complain about anything at this bar.
