El Barrio Latin Bar
Established in June 2000, El Barrio Latin Bar is owned by The Coconut Groove Company Limited, an independent operator.
The bar benefits from an entertainment license with flexible opening hours until 3am (5am during festivals and festive seasons) 7 nights per week, remaining open long after most other city bars have closed. The aesthetics are unique with traditional rustic design and craftsmanship meeting modern functionality and technology in a fusion of warm colours and authenticity.
El Barrio is a genuine Latin bar based in Edinburgh and not Havana, but will not fail to have you reaching for your passport on your first entrance.
We have two bars with distinct functionalities. The main bar is a modern, ergonomic production line bar, designed to serve you the entire product mix quickly and effortlessly. The second bar is a more traditional cocktail bar producing excellent cocktails from a more laid back setting.
The Product Mix has a rich Latin heritage with a good selection of Spanish and Mexican imported beers, Cuban and Caribbean rums, tequilas, Brazilian cachaca and even Pisco straight from the Andes. Have you tried our Pisco Sours or the old favourite 'El barrio' Mojito? We make an excellent selection of traditional Latin cocktails using classic recipes and fresh, natural ingredients.
All our entertainment is done true to the Latin flava! We run weekly salsa classes for all levels throughout the week and stage participatory line dance choreographies every weekend. Our DJs mix 'n' spin the hottest tracks on the dancefloor every night and live percussion is a regular feature. Live bands and dance performances are hosted on special occasions. Salsa Classes
As part of our weekly entertainment, we offer a busy schedule of salsa classes for all levels ranging from complete novices with two-left-feet to advanced level. Want to know what's it all about? Try our FREE Salsa taster class every Friday & Saturday from 9pm.
You do not need to book or have a partner, just turn up and we will do the rest. Alternatively come down get a drink and watch it all going on.
