Hamilton will ironically ‘come alive’ on Sunday, October 30 when Latino bar and kitchen Barcito holds its iconic Day of the Dead celebration from 3pm.
The Day of the Dead is all about lively celebrations – a typically a Latin American custom that combines indigenous rituals with Spanish traditions. Assured that the dead would be insulted by mourning and sadness, Dia de los Muertos celebrates these souls and death as part of the human experience.
So Barcito is throwing a party! They will fire up the South American grill (taking bookings for dinner), with live music by Joao Mendes.
The day will also include the grand opening of the bar’s new Cabana Courtyard where you to kick back with a cocktail or dance the night away with their DJ.
Prizes for best dressed are up for grabs on the day, so paint up and party it up!
Barcito is an affectionate term meaning “little bar for the neighbourhood” where locals meet to enjoy quality fresh food and drinks in a vibrant, relaxed environment.
Our food takes a modern, inspired approach on Latino ingredients and South American dishes. The chefs focus not only on technique and skill but on their love for attention to detail; because your satisfaction is only equal to the passion behind the preparation.
Barcito is family owned and run, with each of our team members carrying business and hospitality skills from our homes in Argentina and Australia. Our adventures through South/Central America and the Caribbean made us realise the lack of choices in Newcastle surrounding Latino cuisine. Our love of travel and food resulted in the birth of Barcito and it is our dream to share these unique experiences with our now hometown of Newcastle.
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 seating.
Bifold doors and windows create a comfortable, relaxed indoor dining space where you can watch our mixologists in action. This area spills onto the colourful “La Boca” courtyard; ideal for families & friends who want to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Further on we are soon to open our leafy “Cabana Courtyard”. The perfect space to laze around with a cocktail; and feel transported to a holiday destination in the Caribbean.
Barcito is located at 37 Beaumont St, Hamilton
