Barrio – Chicago, IL
Barrio is the latest restaurant offering from the prolific DineAmic Group. Barrio is Latin-inspired, embodying the color, diversity, and energy of the many barrios (neighborhoods) of Central and South America. It is at once opulent and gritty, sophisticated and irreverent, subdued and vibrant. Barrio is a kaleidoscope of patterns, shapes, and colors that are conveyed in wall cover, decorative metal work, ceramic tile, upholstery, and glazed brick. The driving force of the design is an elegant, oval shaped bar with a statuesque back bar that rises up and emanates rays of perforated metal beams which reach across the bar area and through the storefront to define the outdoor dining. The main dining room features opera box like cabana seating, custom reclaimed wood and zinc tables with a variety of seating options.
