Barrio Angel is a DJ bar, that combines the spirit of community with street culture. Their unique interior takes inspiration from the streets of London to New York, Miami to Mexico, Rio to Havana and charms upon first glance.

A fire-fight of colour, Barrio Angel does its South American culture proud. Bustling between ceilings laden in tropical plants and umbrellas, walls abundant in luminescent tiling and a decked out indoor caravan for private parties and unique post-work drinks alike, Barrio Angel is to be seen to be believed.

With generous happy hours and food deals throughout the week there's no reason why you shouldn't pop in to Barrio Angel for a refreshing cocktail and some bangin' tunes. Barrio Angel focuses on a love of music in all its worldly genres, an appreciation of upcoming DJs and musicians, combined with an appetite for food and drink sourced from all corners and served how they should be. They've scoured the world to offer you the best of the bunch and nothing less. Whether it's ice cold Mexican beer, Caipirinhas served 'no estilo brasileiro', exquisite coffee from Columbia or exotic fruit combinations in our smoothies and juices... you are guaranteed something to tingle your taste buds!

Had a great night here for my birthday, staff were really good, only thing I would say we were at the back in the Cocktail Cabana and the fire exit was there so staff had to keep coming back and forth with ice and rubbish etc... not ideal, would be worth warning people of this in advance, but otherwise really good! Small and intimate! visited Barrio Angel on 10 Dec 2016

I went here with a group of ten, even mix of boys and girls- the staff were brilliant; they looked after us so well and were extremely attentive. The bar is great fun and the fact that it stays open until 3am is a total result. Would deffo recommend. Deirdre visited Barrio Angel on 23 Apr 2016

Have booked here for my birthday on numerous occasions, always friendly, fun staff. Often happy to extend your booking if you end up there for the night, cocktails are great, always a good local vibe vic1 visited Barrio Angel on 27 Nov 2015

Had an excellent experience here, groups of friends came down for a birthday night out. Happy hour is where its at, however mix up over bookings weren't great; but understandable, dance floor is very small but a great place to start your night off in.

I would give zero stars. The waitress said a drink would cost 7 pounds and then there was an 'extra' 1 pound on the receipt. Not sure why. We pointed it out and they said the waitress just got it wrong the first time (as if to say: 'Now suck it up'). The music was not as interesting as claimed on the website (just usual commercial stuff). And remember that if you don't want to pay the optional service charge you must clearly state it before you give them any money, as they simply 'don't do refunds'.

Been to this colourful paradise a few times now. Service is always on point and the cocktails are to die for. Would recommend 'Catch the Pigeon' it has loads of flavour!

I celebrated my birthday at Barrio North and can honestly say it was one of my best birthdays. I reserved the caravan which was ideal for having somewhere to sit and chat with friends and as a base for when we wanted to dance. The music was great and staff were really attentive especially when I arrived there were other people sat in the caravan who weren't part of the party. The staff were quick to explain the area had been reserved. Once sat down a member of the bar staff came over to take our drinks order which wasn't exoected but great! Thank you so much Barrio North! Would definitely recommend!

Had my birthday celebrations last weekend and it was a great night! Love the quirkiness of the bar, the location is great, the cocktails are delicious and the staff was lovely. We felt very well looked after, so many many thanks. If you are a big group get the Caravan booked in advance as it is the best space in Barrio. We were about 40 at some point, so it got a bit crowed, but for around 20 people should be fine. Definitely recommend this place for events, or even just a fun night out.

I went for my finacee's birthday with 15 friends and it was amazing! Every one of them had blast in Barrio and want to go back for sure. We made a reservation so we had our table ready when we arrived and had personal service for drinks and food the whole night. Can definetely recommend this place!

I had my goodbye party in Barrio North because I absolutely love Barrio East and was eager to explore its counterpart in Angel. Although a pre-drinks session kept my ability to recall small details by the time I got to the bar, I do remember the positive reaction of my friends when getting to the bar. I also remember there were two people sitting in our place and one of the hostesses kindly offered to ask them to leave. The music made me want to stay longer and the decoration and atmosphere was latin and hip at the same time. Loved the Barrios and would definitely recommend someone to celebrate a special event there :)

I had my birthday party in their caravan last week, and everything about it was fab - great music (a mix of pop and more atmospheric dance music), the staff were really helpful, and the music was amazing!

Never ever been let down by a night at Barrio, any of them, but this is a firm favourite! Definitely book a table in their caravan, just because you ruddy can

I booked a booth here for a large party of us and it didn't disappoint. Bar staff were helpful and lovely and the atmosphere is lively and fun. Also, we loved the music, we always do at a Barrio. Make sure you get there early for the happy hour! All round top night, highly recommend.

Had a fantastic time here recently; great atmosphere, delicious drinks and friendly bar staff. Less crowded than the central version and just as fun!

My fav cocktail bar in north london. Great buzz, fun vibe, especially on weekends. Great happy hour too. A dependable fun bar to go with friends that will never let you down!

What a top shout out, nice one Joy!

Great cocktails, cracking staff and buzzing atmosphere, what more could you want from a place?! Prefer this branch to its central sister which can get over crowded. Barrio in Angel however ensures everyone has a good time with a great bunch behind the bar who create some damn good drinks at less then you'd expect prices. The atmosphere is fun even on a week night with a resident DJ playing everything you might expect and more. Definitely a place to remember in the area!

Wow thanks for the Barrio love - glad you are a fan and hope you keep coming back!

Barrio North is one of the cutest bars I think I've ever seen. Whoever came up with the interior design is very talented. With a big helping of retro in its decor, it still manages to seem sleek, Lovely intimate atmosphere with vinatge sofas and soft lighting. The piece de resistance though is the gutted caravan sitting in the middle of the bar and decorated with fairylights and popart wallpaper! Recommended

Aww great to see you're feeling the Barrio get up Annie, there will always be a seat for you in our Caravan :)
