We’re normally suckers for red sangria, but Boqueria’s White Sangria shines brighter than their red varietal. The wine cocktails are also a hit, and if you’re feeling smoky, try the El Vermut. At half off on Happy Hour, it’s a perfect chance to experience Boqueria’s take on Barcelona’s vermouth renaissance. For food, the Escalivada, is a winner. While they photograph well, skip the Churros.
Our Overall Rating: 4/5
It’s hard to really go wrong with sangria and small plates, and the popular Boqueria gets it right. A wide array of drinks and tapas are on Happy Hour, so there’s something for everyone. It’s a great spot to take a vegetarian friend, or your adventurous mate. The service can be a little spotty, but is solid overall. Located right in the heart of the DuPont/business district, it’s a great spot for an after work meet-up.
