Venue Features
The Scene:
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 its 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.
Design:
Designed by Square Feet Studio, the interior and exterior space present a combination of bright colors and bold patterns that are layered over an existing backdrop of old brick, steel, and concrete to evoke the excitement of a Spanish market. Inspiration is drawn from the Mercado de San Miguel, a food hall within an open ironwork structure dating from 1916 located in Madrid. Playfully curated fabrics and wallcoverings in reds, pinks, ochres and blues create a harmonious cacophony, like the atmosphere in a bustling market.
 
A series of large capiz shell globe pendants help unify the space by bringing the ceiling plane down and casting a warm glow throughout. The deep blue of a starry night hovers overhead. Dramatic drapery walls soften banquettes on either side of the space. The cozy bar has a surprising pink ceiling and warm brass accents. Chairs and tables throughout are made of a rough-hewn wood. The entrance signage, made from red and orange neon ambles along steel panels, articulate the weathered steel of the canopy.
Eats & Drinks
Food, Restaurants, Cafes, Bars & Lounges
Food, Restaurants, Cafes:
Bar Mercado will focus on ingredient-driven Spanish tapas, meats, cheeses and bar bites. The menu highlights the seasonal, vibrant flavors of traditional Spanish cooking. Noteworthy tapas include lobster bocadillo with garlic aioli, pimenton sriracha, piquillo pepper and toasted bun; coca, or flatbread, topped with chickpea-hearts of palm puree and caña de cabra; empanadas stuffed with pork cheek and golden raisin; and squid served with esplette, gremolata and shellfish stock.
 
A separate, quick tick menu of bar snacks is available featuring meats, cheeses, boquerones, almonds, olives and more. For dessert, there is a selection of classic Spanish sweets, such as crème Catalan with cinnamon, bay and lemon zest, and tarta de Santiago, an almond sponge cake with espresso anglaise and membrillo.
Bars & Lounges:
A Spanish-focused wine list features bottles from Galica to Calanuya, Andalucia to the Pais Vasco and everywhere in between. The opening wine list is comprised of 60 labels representing a variety of whites and red from all of Spain’s vital winemaking regions, complementing the deeply Spanish cuisine. Bar Mercado’s cocktail and beer program also possess a similar Spanish penchant with a selection of gin and tonics, sangria, kalimotxo, Estrella Damm and cider.
