Bar Lola to be exact. Hidden away at the corner of Dartmouth and Commonwealth in Back Bay, BarLola is one of those tiny venues you don’t hear about all that often, but immediately fall in love with. A small underground lair that makes guests feel as if they’ve crossed the ocean and landed in Andalusia, it’s the perfect place to host a party without the ridiculous cost of rental space or table service. With some Boston nightclubs charging hundreds of dollars per table just for one night’s reservation, BarLola has a seperate room that can be reserved for parties without the crazy fees.
Spend your evening dancing to Flamenco while drinking Barlola’s exquisite red and white sangrias, available in pitchers for you and your friends to share. In addition to their variety of Spanish wines, the tapas are delicious and reasonably priced compared to some of the pricier Spanish restaurants in the Boston area. We recommend the gambas al ajillo, which is garlicky shrimp perfect for multiple fingers to dip into while swinging around to the sound of a Flamenco guitar.
With the warmer weather comes the chance to sit outside on the patio at BarLola. So run over to grab a chair and a glass of sangria as fast as you can. Or as they would say in Spain, muy rapido!
