Barbacoa Re-Opening Party on New Year's Eve


Barbacoa, the blingy, pond-side Parkcenter bar and eatery, is slated to re-open one year after a fire completely destroyed the multi-million dollar establishment. Owner Robert Castoro has updated a number of things in the space—including adding a dance-floor with a DJ booth, a “secret” second story VIP area and rooftop deck.

“It was all one-off stuff before and it is again, we’ve got … probably seven figures in new antiquities in there. I have 11 artists that have been working for us full-time. Nothing is bought from a store,” said Castoro. “It’s spectacular and it’s over the top—it’s literally five times what is was before.”

Regulars will recognize Chef Enrique’s signature menu and the rad double happy hour, which features 2-for-1 drinks seven days a week from 4-6 p.m. and half-off drinks Thursday through Saturday, 9:30 p.m.-1 a.m.

A special preview party will take place New Year's Eve. For $50 a person, you can enjoy appetizers and one complimentary drink. You can score tickets for the NYE party by calling 208-338-5000.
