One Venezuelan walks into a bar and says to another Venezuelan, “para ayudarnos a pasar el palo, un pasapalo” (to enjoy el palo, you need a pasapalo). This anecdote could have taken place in Pasapalo, the authentic, soulful bar that recently joined the fashionable foodie scene in Poble Sec. With palo being a typical Spanish drink, pasapalo (the Venezuelan term for tapas) is the food that helps wash it down. Pasapalo has taken this gastronomical and drink-related philosophy and created the ideal place to relax while enjoying craft beers and delicious cocktails alongside excellent tapas with both Spanish and Venezuelan influences. Upon arrival, every customer receives a complimentary pakora, a delicious chickpea treat. All the food is locally sourced and made from scratch, and you can enjoy it alongside a discounted drink during happy hour, every day from 7pm until 11pm. As well as live performances from local jazz bands and musicians, expect to hear the smooth tones of jazz, salsa and boogaloo in the evening.
