About Events with Bar Mercado
Bar Mercado is a causal, multi-regional Spanish tapas restaurant and bar located in Krog Street Market, a food hall on the east side of Atlanta. The name “Bar Mercado” is derived from Madrid’s Mercado de San Miguel, which translates to “market bar”. In Madrid, this market is open daily and features stalls occupied by purveyors from around the country selling the best products and prepared food items; it looks and tastes like a melting pot of regional specialties. Bar Mercado, named appropriately for it’s location inside of a market and for its menu which features the greatest hits of Spanish cuisine. We aim to capture the authentic, relaxed feel of a traditional tapas bar by offering small, flavor-packed dishes that are easily shared. Behind the bar, guests can enjoy a selection of tapas-size beer, Spanish wines and straightforward cocktails.
