About El Barrio
Located in the heart of Wellington, between Cuba Street and Courtenay Place, El Barrio is Wellington’s newest and coolest little Latino bar. Come and meet our friendly Spanish and Portuguese speaking bar staff, and share the food and drink, music and dance, and culture of Latin America.
We have daily happy hour, live music every week, and Latino themed and cultural nights throughout the year! A true Latino experience here in Wellington. See you there!
¡Nos vemos allá! Nos vemos lá!
Enjoyed the tapas before heading to a show . Quick friendly service and very tasty 😋
Very friendly and cute staff
Cocktail making class was awesome - highly recommend! Great staff and yummy food!
Amazing atmosphere, a fun vibe to the whole place! With friendly and attentive staff.
Absolutely awesome! Everything was perfect, the best place to eat, boogie and have a fun evening. Also you could still talk with the music loud.
I had an amazing time at El Barrio! I will definitely be back! Be sure to try « el pan de la casa »!
Decent food, fabulous service!
Great food & amazing service. Would definitely come again.
Our waiter/barman was friendly and accommodating, we enjoyed each of the 6 tapas dishes we tried and the First Table voucher meant the meal was great value. Based on all of the above, we would happily return to El Barrio.
Amazing Latin food in a prime location on Dixon street, my girlfriend and I loved everything but the Carne Asada and Churros were particularly good.
Great service and food at First Table. Fantastic value
Very attentive service who was warm and welcoming, and accommodated our requests really well
Fabulous service & great food.....what more could we ask for! Thank you!
Very friendly service and food was great
I think the food could get better. Having some burgers and a wider range of food might bring in more people in. Loved everything else though
First time but will definitely go back. Great selection of tapas at very reasonable prices. Bonus of happy hour drinks when we dined thank you
I can't recommend this place enough. I held a private function at El Barrio late December. Everything was perfect. After a few initial issues getting in touch (do persevere it is worth it) the staff and management were very accommodating to help me celebrate a very special occasion. The atmosphere, food, service, music were all excellent. Do not hesitate, go to El Barrio
Fantastic night thank you. We will visit again.
Food and drinks were delicious but service could have been better
We loved all the colours and overall atmosphere and very much enjoyed the cocktails and tapas. Would definitely come here again
Great atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff and a fun open mic crowd - we'll be back!
Lovely staff, great food, awesome atmosphere. The tapas alone are worth going for!
Lovely cocktails and awesome service. Love the $10 cocktail deal. Will be a regular customer at this place.
Great atmosphere food and beer and service Will me BCI! Loved the margarita!
