Barrio' - meaning district or neighbourhood in Spanish, it's also used in North America to refer to the Hispanic ghettos such as El Barrio in East Harlem, New York City.

Taking in these 'Barrios' along with those in places such as Miami, Rio, Havana, Lisbon, Barcelona and London itself - one thing unites them all: La Música! It’s as if they’re all part of the ‘ghetto archipelago’.

Drawing on the neighbourhood and community spirit, our personable approach aims to create a friendly and inclusive environment where people can kick back and relax - or get up to get down to the music laid on by our great line-up of DJs, musicians and urban poets.

From using reclaimed materials in weird and wonderful ways to hacking up a vintage caravan - this is our reflection of the ingenious ways barrios and ghettos from many parts of the world re-cycle and re-appropriate discarded items.
