The next time you find yourself in DTLA – be it catching a game at Staples center, a great band at the Conga Room, or simply exploring our wonderful city – plan a stop at barcito, a Buenos Aires-inspired cafe and bar that is warm and cozy nestled between the tall buildings on 12th and Grand.

barcito is covered with large pictures of Argentina’s capital, which is also muse to some of the food it offers. From 11 am to 4 pm, you can enjoy their Day Menu, filled with items like spanish tortillas, arroz con pollo, or bite-sized (and delicious) empanadas. Aperitivo Hour follows from 4 pm to 7 pm bringing delicious drinks with it, including my favorite – the Moscow mule. The Night Menu is offered until 1 am.

barcito is located at 403 West 12th St., Los Angeles CA 90015. Find more information here. Call (213) 415-1821 with questions.
