37 Beaumont St, Hamilton
Barcito is an affectionate term meaning “little bar for the neighbourhood” where locals meet to enjoy quality fresh food and drinks in a fun, relaxed environment.
The venue is a true chameleon that provides different spaces to cater your mood. For people who want to watch the hustle and bustle of Hamilton, there is street dining. Inside you can relax on the Cuban lounges, dine in our booths for a more cosy experience, or at the bar tables while watching the mixologists in action creating some of the best traditional & inspired Latino cocktails. This area opens onto the vibrant “La Boca” courtyard; ideal for families & friends who want to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine especially over one of our wonderful South American breakfasts (friendly, leashed dogs welcome). Keep walking and you’ll find the “Cabana Courtyard” with huts, beanbags and swings by a little bar. This space transports you to the Caribbean and is perfect for our regular Latino events! It is fast becoming one of the most popular private function areas in town for people who want a vibrant and fun event. The space is free to use, and there are a range of food options for those larger groups.
Expect to find traditional food with a few family recipes thrown in, while also enjoying the creativity of the wonderful kitchen team taking a modern, inspired approach on Latino ingredients and South American dishes. We have 8 beer taps to offer up fantastic local craft beers, and of course have a heap of imported Latino bottled beers. Our wine list allows Novocastrians to sample the best varieties from Argentina & Chile that you may not have had the pleasure of trying.
Every Sunday evening we hold an authentic “asado” or Argentinian BBQ. We want to share this Argentinian family tradition with Newcastle so you can experience the smells, the tastes and the good times that an asado brings. There are also plenty of vegan & vegetarian options. All of this plus live music every week featuring awesome Newcastle talent!
For a fun Latino experience we hope to see you at Barcito!
